"For me, it's about creation - pulling sites together and making it happen, seeing it come alive"
Matthew Bennett has been in real estate and property developing his entire life. From selling villas to commercial properties and development sites worth up to $900m, he has over 25 years experience in every aspect of property development and sales.
At the tender age of 15, Matthew was already managing open homes for the family business. At 18, he had moved onto appraisals. Studying Land Economy at University changed his life, when he was involved in pulling together multiple blocks for a shopping centre. "From that moment, I wanted to build things!"
As the driving force behind Bennett Cooney Mackman, Matthew wants to do things differently. It's about bringing an entirely new property concept to life. "Clients benefits from our experience across the entire project life cycle, whether it's end to end project management or targeted services.
"We don't need to do things the old way. I love embracing change. I'm excited about where we're going with this - it's the future."
