Kevin Deane


Kevin Deane comes from an extensive background in the farming industry. As a child, his family reared poultry and owned sheep studs. After school, he attended Flock House farm training college in Bulls, Manawatu, moving into dairy farm management roles upon graduation.

Kevin found it difficult to progress into herd/farm ownership with no financial backing. He had been looking at rural Real Estate for some time, feeling that his farming knowledge and experience placed him in a good position for understanding potential clients’ needs.

His move into Real Estate was triggered when he met his future wife Andrea. Her father, Stan Hickford, owned the Ngaruawahia Harcourts Franchise, and offered Kevin an opportunity. Kevin became a Real Estate Salesperson papers in 1995, followed by his Branch Manager and AREINZ qualifications. His goal was to become a franchise owner himself.

2002 marked the start of the Kevin Deane Real Estate Limited brand, when he and Andrea bought their first Harcourts franchise in Morrinsville. The Cambridge franchise was added to the business in 2006, and Matamata in 2007.

Today, Kevin Deane Real Estate is a well-known and respected brand, firmly establishing Harcourts in three key farming communities of the sought after “golden triangle” in the Waikato.
