Real Estate Agent
William McP. (Peter) Christie, J.P., was born on December 17, 1929, and attended Queen's College in Nassau before traveling to England to study Law at Middle Temple, London. In 1951 Peter was called to the Bar of the United Kingdom and The Bahamas and returned to New Providence to open a law firm, William McP. Christie & Co. In addition to representing numerous private clients, Peter acted as H. G. Christie Ltd.'s principal real estate attorney, assisting his uncles -- the founder of the company, Sir Harold George Christie, K.T., C.B.E., and his brother, the Honourable Frank Holmes Christie, C.B.E. -- in the purchase of all of the firm's major properties. He spent many years traveling throughout the country, playing a key role in the establishment of such world-renowned communities as Hawk's Nest in Cat Island, Windermere in Eleuthera and Ocean Bite in Exuma. Peter's area of expertise was researching and establishing titles for land -- no easy feat in the many places in The Bahamas where, for decades, record keeping was poor or non-existent. During the 1950s, Peter served as Traffic Magistrate and Justice of the Peace for New Providence. In 1967 he was elected to the House of Assembly for the North Andros and Berry Islands District and was a Member of Parliament until the General Election the following year. In 1973, William McP. Christie & Co. merged with the prestigious firm of Higgs and Johnson, where Peter was named Second Senior Partner. In 1991 he resigned from that position in order to manage H. G. Christie Ltd. full time. An avid sailor, Peter has been a member of the Royal Nassau Sailing Club since 1951, and has served as its Commodore. He is the only person to have taken part in the Club's Inaugural Snipe Fleet competition as well as its 50th Anniversary race in 2004. He also enjoys tennis and skiing, and is a Past President of the Rotary Club of Nassau, which he joined shortly after it was founded in 1963. He is married to fellow Attorney Rosemary Christie and has three children, two of whom -- John and Cara -- work with him at H.G. Christie Ltd.
