Peter van Overbeek

Peter is now a two-time Husky having graduated Magna Cum Laude from the UW’s Foster School of Business in 2010. He joins the MSRE program after nearly a decade of work experience in the management consulting and software industries. In those roles Peter led businesses and their people through transformative changes: re-organizing a 300 person department, building a team from the ground up, launching major software products to market, re-platforming business critical technologies, and more.

Peter was bit by the real estate bug in 2012 when he purchased an investment property in Greenlake and since then has been building his own portfolio. At a cross roads in his career, Peter decided to pursue his passion for real estate full time and is interested in both development and real estate finance. He is excited for the MSRE to provide the requite technical skills to complement his technology background, proven leadership, and demonstrated problem solving skills.

Peter lives in Bryant and loves to get outdoors whenever he can to climb, hike, ski, cycle, fish, and play golf. Most notably Peter is on a quest to climb the seven summits (the highest peak on each continent). As of this writing he is over halfway through, having summitted Denali/McKinley in Alaska, Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mt Elbrus in Russia, and Cerro Aconcagua in Argentina.
