I have honored four legends in these pages – my Dad, Doug Harwood, Gary Thompson, and John Wagner. Today we add a fifth.
Peter Buehrle, affectionately know to all of us as Peter B, passed away on Sunday.
He was gregarious and good natured, always bringing levity to every situation. An accomplished realtor (he sold over 1,200 homes) and a committed golfer, he had friends everywhere he went. The last time I saw Peter in person, I was standing on the curb when he drove up in his car. As we chatted it up, I noticed that he had a real estate training CD on the passenger seat. When I pointed it out, he said, “Hoping to learn something new every day, and do better for my people”.
Kayla and his son Houston were in the same class at CCHS, then he went on to graduate from USC. Houston then became one of the greatest successes to ever come out of Cathedral when he started his own company and landed on Orpah’s Favorite Things List in 2018. Here’s his story:
The intro on Houston’s facebook page is simply this:
Peter Buehrle’s son.
Peter was known for his Sunday Funday videos on Facebook. Let’s play his last one here:
Rest easy Peter, you will truly be missed.
Peter B sold my neighbors house, I talked with him 1/2 dz times when he was here. He showed up for showings, imaging that. Old school guy and he was entertaining to talk with. Sorry to hear he has passed.
Hard to live in La Costa for decades and not know Peter B. Such a character, he was one of a kind
I cant believe he’s gone. We gad a special bond. I was going to see him when I go back to visit. I just spoke with him… this is too weird. Surreal.
I am stunned. Peter was very beloved. I worked for him many years bringing lots of listings. He was larger than life. Adored his wife and son
Just found out. Tears
