If his background is anything to go by, Roger Child has a genuine passion for people. He has 28 years’ experience in airline industry, travel industry and hospitality industry.
This extensive background in customer service means Roger appreciates that every customer is an individual and each deal is unique, and he’s adept at working out what people want and listening to their needs.
Roger, his wife and their family, have been living in the Waikato since 1986 and feel right at home in the diverse and rural community it offers. He has managed the Matamata Club, resulting in him becoming well known in the community.
The move into real estate seemed a natural fit, with Roger obtaining his Real Estate Salesperson certificate in 2007. From day one he has been with the Harcourts Matamata team, one of the Harcourts Kevin Deane Real Estate franchises servicing the Greater Waikato area.
Having represented the region in cricket and hockey, as both an administrator and an umpire, Roger has a passion for fairness. He participated in the 2016 Master’s Games as a hockey umpire. He has a lot of respect for the people of Matamata and has a deep understanding of living and working in a small town -
“Real estate in Matamata is far more personal than other regions. You’re going to see the people whose house you sold again and again.”
