About Us

Our Story

Founded in 1978 by Dorothy Peacock, Peacock Settlements has a history rich in professionalism and charisma. With a background of working at a law firm, she dedicated her life to the settlement industry and was one of the first five settlement agents in Perth with her office in set in Cremorne Arcade, with her Labrador as her trusted office assistant. An icon of the industry and strongly affiliated with other pioneers of the time, her work included assisting in the preparation of the Bill that went before parliament that is now recognised as the Settlement Agents Act. A woman who was extremely generous with her time and trained many in the industry, she was an integral part of setting up the Independent Settlement Agents Association. Today, Dorothy Peacock is celebrated with an award in her honour that recognises outstanding contribution by an individual to the industry. She was described as honest, dedicated, with an amazing work ethic with the utmost integrity. This legacy lives on through Peacock Settlements and today we are recognised for our commitment to delivering a superior service and are dedicated to continuing the set the industry benchmark for many years to come.

We believe in building mutual relationships with our clients, and consider them as more than just customers – in fact we have been entrusted with some family transactions since the very beginning and have settled grandparents, parents and grandkids all from the same family. Every client is cherished and treated with respect, regardless of the size of their settlement.
