About Us

Mark Peters B.Ec

Mark Peters, after graduating as a Bachelor of Economics has owned and operated several businesses over the past 40 years. Mark was Managing Director and Shareholder of College Mercantile Agency for 12 years with responsibility for 22 Offices and 500 employees, and later a Director of Doen Pacific for 25 years whose products were sold into 30 countries, with manufacturing plants in Australia, China, and the US.

In-between these two businesses Mark was involved in building Hotels and Resorts.

Having recently sold out of the previous business and spurred on by the Coronavirus, Mark decided to further establish the Co-Living residential home model in Australia. He sees Custom Designed Homes creating the opportunities for Seniors & Singles to co-own and share luxury homes offering greater financial security, and for Seniors in particular a real alternative to Retirement Village life.

Mark, married for 30 years has 4 children and 7 grand children, leads a most fulfilling life, and looks forward to the future.

Tim and Mark only seem to disagree about football. He is a long suffering Carlton supporter.

Teaming up with Tim and Mark, all three share a passion for alternative Co-Living lifestyle options, bringing together like minds to achieve a common goal of building designer homes built for sharing.

Living regionally, Lysa and her husband Daniel of 21 years enjoy a family lifestyle having fun raising their two boys aged 10 and 15.

Lysa's only query is Tim and Mark's choice of football teams.
