Matthew Bishop - Property Consultant
A passion for winning and a drive to succeed at the elite level saw Matthew excel on the footy field, making his way from a junior at Mooroolbark Football club to eventually making the AFL where he enjoyed a successful career, playing initially with Melbourne and then the Port Adelaide Football Club. The crowning achievement for Matt was being an integral part of Port Adelaide’s first ever Premiership win in the AFL, playing a pivotal role in the back line. After a successful career as a player, Matthew took up a role as an administrator within the AFL industry and he and his family eventually moved back to his home town of Mooroolbark where he headed up football operations at the local football league. Always competitive and wanting to be challenged, Matthew made the move to step into real estate, something he has been interested in pursuing for a long time. Matthew loves the region, he always knew he would come home and loves that his kids are able to grow up in the same area that he did all of those years ago.
Under the guidance of many great leaders during his time in the AFL Matthew learnt what it takes to succeed at an elite level. Those life skills will be of great benefit to his clients - he enjoys working in a team environment, meeting new people and building relationships. It is important to Matthew to be constantly learning and developing his skills so he can continue to help his clients meet their real estate goals. Having a strong work ethic, calm demeanour as well as being trustworthy are all qualities Matthew has been able to bring to his role at Methven. Outside of work Matthew is a family man supported by his wife Gemma and their three young children, he still loves his footy – and enjoys coaching the Mooroolbark junior football team, watching live sport and taking his border collie Chloe for a run around Lillydale Lake.
