RE/MAX - Riverina Realty

25/20 Clyde Street, Hamilton East, Hamilton 3216



We opened in February 2021 in Hamilton, with our name taken from the historic hotel that once occupied the site

Well-known local businessman Steve Roper established the global real estate brand in the city with fellow managing director Jo Harris and office manager Lee Roper.“We wanted to bring one of the world’s greatest real estate names to the Hamilton region in a way that had links to this community.

Riverina Hotel was a magnificent building, once purportedly graced by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother. It was New Zealand’s first international hotel.“We bought a property on the site of the old Riverina Hotel, hence the office name, and we have fitted it out complete with a mural of the old hotel.”

The Ropers sought out the top agent in the area to join them as a business partner. Jo Harris is an experienced, highly respected local agent who, like Steve, is a property investor with solid portfolio and has a strong connection with the Waikato Property Investors Association. She is also a New Zealand champion in dragon boating who has a passion for exercise and climbs the Hakarimata Steps every Friday morning.

“I am in this industry because I love helping people, whether that be in fulfilling their real estate dreams or reaching their financial goals. ‘My passion equals your result’ is my mantra. “As an agent, I strive to create wealth through property for my customers. Now, as a business owner, I can help create wealth for agents on my team because the RE/MAX culture encourages agents to grow their own business.
