Roger Child

After 28 years in the airline, travel and hospitality industries, Roger Child was ready for a change in 2007. He was drawn to Real Estate by the flexibility of hours, unlimited income potential and being able to continue working with people. When he heard that a branch of Harcourts was being opened by Kevin Deane in Matamata, along with two friends, he looked at this new opportunity.

Harcourts interested him because of its sound reputation, world recognised brand, and its superior internal systems and support. The new principal of Matamata, Kevin Deane, was already an experienced Harcourts man, with other Waikato Harcourts franchises in Morrinsville and Cambridge. At the ripe young age of 51, Rogers joined Harcourts and completed his Real Estate Salesperson qualification.

Roger found that training while being part of a company made the process much easier. He was able to see what he was learning in action, and being immersed in the environment was an advantage.

At the Harcourts Central Awards at the end of 2017, Roger proudly collected his 10 year Service Award. As one of the founding members of the Matamata office, he enjoys the benefits and team spirit of working within a group of three Harcourts franchises.
