• The point of difference. Working with Nikki & Chelsea was such a joy. It made this usually stressful situation manageable and we were able to present our house looking at its best for a quick sale. Their team approach is wonderful and they are so supportive and willing to assist with anything we needed. They are a one off!

    J. Nyman Seller, Salisbury Street, Subiaco // Mar 2018
  • A pleasure to work with! Whilst investigating the market to purchase in Subiaco, we regularly met Nikki at other properties prior to our purchase. Niki and her team's follow up, qualification of requirements and communication was excellent. One other thing that really impressed us was that the presentation of her properties were outstanding allowing you as a purchaser to really see how the property should be used. If you are looking for property in Subiaco, I would encourage you to speak early to Nikki and the team and whilst I have not sold property with Nikki, should the need arise, I would have no hesitation to engage her and the team at The Property Exchange.

  • Thank you Niki and Chelsea for your work in selling our apartment in Subiaco. You were friendly, professional and meticulous in keeping us informed about the details of the process. You promoted the apartment well and we valued you expertise regarding presentation and pricing. You made the task of selling the property whilst we were living interstate much easier than we thought it might have been. Your professional demeanour at all times and your attention to detail were particularly appreciated. Thank you again.

  • Selling our property using The Property Exchange was a good experience. The staff at The Property Exchange went above what I was expecting during the sales process by adding furnishings and wall coverings during home opens, always in phone contact soon after, always responding promptly to any questions and always in a good manner plus with good ideas on how to market to sell. I would highly recommend Niki Peinke as a sales person.

In 1978 she moved to South Africa for 6 years and got into a career in Public Relations within the hospitality industry, working for the Southern Sun group of hotels Holiday Inns and a very upmarket private Hotel named The Vineyard.

In 1984 she returned to Perth and attained a position as Public Relations Manager of the Merlin Hotel (now The Hyatt) she then 2 years later opened her own version of The Hard Rock Café in Hay Street, Subiaco, which was a resounding success and used to still be humming until the kitchen closed at 3 am in the morning! She ran this until it was bought by Matilda Bay Brewing Company and renamed The Oriel.

In 1988 she started her career in Real Estate in Subiaco and then in 1997 opened The Property Exchange .  Twenty years later, “ TPE “as it is fondly known, is still going strong, and has to be one of the most fun places to work anywhere. The work hard, play hard mentality creates a great atmosphere and much humour along the way.

Niki lives in the same house in Claremont that she bought in 1985 with her partner John, but has been thoroughly renovated and extended since then.

Outside of Real Estate Niki is passionate about collecting old cars, anything retro, singing and playing the guitar, her pet parrot Banjo, entertaining friends and travelling the world.


Chelsea has watched her mum, Niki, build the Subiaco real estate business from just a dream to the brilliant success it is today. After years at the company working as a receptionist, sales assistant and marketing coordinator, Chelsea was drawn to the excitement of real estate sales. She completed her real estate Sales Representative Registration and joined her mum in selling Subiaco, Shenton Park and surrounding areas.

Chelsea bought her first property in 2009 which is managed by The Property Exchange.

Outside of work, she loves the beach, Pilates, reading a great book, enjoying good food and sipping on a nice glass of wine…but never all at once!
