Kevin Deane lives and breathes Rural Real Estate. He 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 his graduation.
After obtaining his Real Estate Salesperson Certificate in 1995, Kevin joined Harcourts and obtained his AREINZ papers in 1997. 2002 marked the start of the Kevin Deane Real Estate Limited brand, when he and his wife 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 the three key farming communities of the sought after “golden triangle” in the Waikato. The company services Cambridge, Morrinsville, Matamata and the Greater Waikato area for residential, lifestyle, rural, commercial and rural economic properties. Kevin and Andrea run the business between them, and Kevin is also a highly-experienced specialist in rural farm sales, and the company’s auctioneer.
Kevin Deane Real Estate is heavily involved in the local communities it is part of. It sponsors groups and clubs throughout the region, including the Chiefs rugby club, with Kevin frequently engaged as an auctioneer or a speaker at community events. Both Andrea and Kevin are supportive of local events, and Kevin is an active Rotarian.
Over 20 years on from where it all started, Kevin still genuinely loves what he is doing and sits comfortably in his niche selling lifestyle properties and farms. His gregarious personality and infectious sense of humour reflect his continued interest and passion for the business he and Andrea have created, and their long term relationship with Harcourts.
