Agent Profile | Sold On Kapiti

Karl Matakatea

Contact Agent


My name’s Karl, the youngest and best dressed of the Sold on Kapiti team. I was born and bred in Horowhenua before venturing to Manila, in the Philippines, to live and work, while taking the opportunity to travel some of the most beautiful parts of the globe.

When I returned to New Zealand with my partner Jordy, I set up the call centre for property data company CoreLogic NZ, before becoming a salesperson and trainer helping real estate agents across the country with software database education. I did that for six years before I was snapped up to work for a local real estate company as its property suite specialist, where I stayed for two years as the national trainer.

I’d always wanted to be a real estate salesperson so when the chance came along I took it with both hands, joining SOK was a big risk at the time but taking the opportunity proved to be one of the best things I’ve ever done. Even if it meant leaving my job, moving, and turning thirty all in the same week!

Outside of work I love socialising, playing indoor netball, walking up hills, gardening, interior design and most importantly hanging with Jordy and our 'son', labradoodle Charlie.
