MYLES PEARCE commenced his real estate career at Peter F Burns Brighton in 1969.

Prior to real estate he had several successful years in Banking and Hotel management.

Myles started his own Agency in 1977 on the back of his personal sales success of average 90 sales p.a. for 15 years. He developed the business into 33 offices all over SA and employed 320 staff. Myles Pearce & Co Pty Ltd was the largest single shareholder real estate agency ever to exist in Australia.

In 1987 he was courted by the State Bank of SA who purchased 50% of the business and he ran it as a joint venture until he bought them out in 1991.

In 1998 Myles sold the business 100% to Century 21 Australasia.

Over the ensuing 10 years Myles ran his Management Coaching business (U.C.U. Pty Ltd) AND grew a start up Property Development Co. to a $100,000,000 p.a. turnover.

A number of factors including a very tough market forced this venture to fail and after a move to Queensland for a few years Myles returned to South Australia with his family.

In December 2009 Myles returned to Peter F. Burns Real Estate to once again pursue his real passion of selling houses and handling the step by step process personally. He is a FELLOW of the Real Estate Institute of Australia and has received many Industry accolades. He was an Australian Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in 1988.

Myles personal motto is “I serve” and believes “I can get everything in life I want by helping enough other people get what they want”.

He is survived by 4 beautiful children,1 grandchild (with another on the way) and 69 years worth of countless friends.
