Our story is written on the streets of Brisbane

On Tuesday the 1st of August in 1933, R.Matthews & Son Pty Ltd was first registered as Auctioneers and Commission Agents in Chardon’s Corner, Annerley. Selling real estate and executing wills for local agent John Coleman since the 1920s, the father and son team of Robert and Leslie Matthews decided to break out and start their own company. A moment in history that set the wheels in motion for the Matthew’s Real Estate of today.

A fixture of Chardon’s Corner for 85 years

First located near the Mary Immaculate Church on the outbound side of Ipswich Road, the office was relocated across the road before settling in the building on the corner of Cracknell Road where it still is today, over eight decades later.

Changing of the guard

In 1962 at the young age of 21, Trevor Matthew’s career in real estate was launched quickly due to the sudden passing of his father, Leslie. Joined a few years later by his brother Ken, they enjoyed an unbroken partnership of 49 years together before Ken’s retirement in 2014.

Four generations strong

To this day, Matthews Real Estate is still family owned and operated, with Trevor Matthews continuing as the current Principal Licensee. Now joined by his son Russell, daughter Kerry and nephew Darren, the Matthews name continues on across four generations displaying the same family principles and trusted reputation in our local community.

Russell was an outstanding agent. He was professional, honest, easy to work with, and incredibly helpful both before and after we bought our house.

Russell has great knowledge of the area and was able to provide us with very useful information that helped up make our decision to buy. I would have no hesitation recommending Russell; if we ever sell we will definitely be using him.
