Little Fish Property Developments - Not so Little! A Chat with Peter Kelly

February 03, 2021

For a lot of people, the property dream is building and developing for profit on the side. Settlement day can be life-changing for those whose projects run smoothly, but not every project goes according to plan. With many variables and a whole lot of knowledge required, some developers are left out of pocket and their dreams don’t become reality.

In this episode, Rebeka chats to Peter Kelly from Little Fish Property Developments to talk about how they help their clients every step of the way throughout the development process to avoid the common pitfalls that cause some projects to crumble. Somewhat like a turnkey solution to project management, Little Fish Property Developments guide their clients through each important step and take care of every detail, including the arduous and often annoying paperwork.

The Little Fish management team consists of Ben Drohan, Mark Walkley and Peter Kelly. Starting out developing for themselves and doing a darn good job of it, they soon had people requesting their help with project management, which led to the formation of Little Fish Property Developments. With over 20 years of experience, they’ve built a well-oiled machine and in this episode, Peter talks through what the Little Fish client experience looks like.

Rebeka and Peter discuss the common pitfalls that some developers can fall into and the four stages of development that need to be done well in order to have a successful project. Peter shares how their clients benefit from their wealth of knowledge, experience and established industry relationships and how Little Fish operate in full transparency, which builds the all-important trust.


Peter also shares his tips for anyone interested in developing for profit, with a big emphasis on research, reaching out to as many people as you can and knowing your numbers. Peter certainly knows his stuff and although developing isn’t easy, he sure does make it sound very doable. So if you’re thinking about developing, this episode is a must-listen for you.
