Peter Bishop

Upon returning to his Philadelphia roots in 1995, Peter entered the field of real estate at the ground level by  performing property inspections throughout Philadelphia and its suburbs. He then progressed to performing more complex appraisals before capitalizing on his existing knowledge of construction to form Thoroughbuilt LLP, a contracting concern that has built and renovated homes in Philadelphia and at the Jersey shore. Peter subsequently utilized his building experience and knowledge of the Philadelphia housing market to become active in acquiring investment properties in the city. While interacting with real estate agents in the acquisition process, he became disillusioned with the level of service he received from various real estate “professionals” and convinced of the need for a more client-centered brokerage to service the Center City market. His opportunity to address that need arrived when he purchased ICR’s headquarters at 16th and Lombard Streets in 2007. After honing his craft at a national real estate firm, Peter  opened ICR in 2008 to provide the Center City market with the advantages of client-centered, professional fee real estate representation.

A father of two sons, Pete has lived within earshot of ICR’s office since 1998 when he and his wife purchased a home in the Rittenhouse neighborhood. He is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Hartford.
