Kevin was born and bred in Matamata and is a proud 4th generation Matamata local. Even when living away in Auckland, Wellington and Hamilton for 12 years of his working career in telecommunications, he always considered Matamata his “home” and got that” lump in his throat” every time he drove back into town. In 1995, his family of seven moved back to where his heart was, back to their beloved Matamata.

Kevin is passionate about giving back to the Matamata community. He is the Matamata Grey Power President, a Matamata Lions Vice-President, an RSA Committee Member and is in his third term as an elected member of the Matamata-Piako District Council; one term on the Matamata Community Board and two terms, as a Matamata Ward Councilor. All are elected positions, and demonstrate the level of trust the community has in him.

Kevin has personally purchased and sold four residential properties, an investment property a commercial property and a successful local business so is very familiar with the negotiating process. Operating Hurricane Computers for 15 years taught Kevin the importance of active listening to his clients, then establishing a full mutual understanding of their wants, needs and aspirations, before working towards a desired outcome.

Kevin took the opportunity presented by Covid to complete his Real Estate Salesperson papers and shortly afterwards joined the team at Harcourts Matamata as a residential, lifestyle and commercial property salesperson. His level business head, negotiation skills, honesty and integrity, extensive knowledge of the Matamata community and large database of potential vendors and buyers, will provide many opportunities for achieving successful real estate property outcomes.
