Meet Matt Benson
My career began as a qualified carpenter in south east NSW in the fine wool growing area of Monaro, which engrained my affinity with regional Australia. At this time, my parents purchased a pub which established a love of business and people.
Moving to the Northern Territory to work as a carpenter, I progressed to running projects and managing staff whilst working for a builder. I enjoyed the challenge so much I began my own commercial construction and joinery business in the Northern Territory in 1998.
The business was successful, employing over 25 carpenters, joiners and hundreds of subcontractors and completing million dollar projects. In addition, I completed many self- funded projects to satisfy my interest in the real estate market.
Seeking a coastal lifestyle for my four children, I relocated my family to Ballina in 2009.
Deciding on a career change, I chose to retrain as a Valuer, which incorporated my love of real estate, knowledge of building and presented the opportunity to be exposed to agribusiness.
With two qualifications (Builder and Valuer) and over 20 years’ experience in construction and the property market, I can offer comprehensive services including project management, estimations, quality assurance, insurance assessments, tax depreciation schedules and a diverse range of valuations.
So now a new chapter has been created with eighty8valuers, I would be happy to assist you with your property needs.
