Davinder has worked in Hamilton's real estate market for over 30 years. He has a background in farming and finance, followed by eight years as a restaurant owner. In 1984 Davinder joined Brunton Patton Real Estate and for the first two years, he worked in the area of business and motel sales before switching to residential property sales. Over the next three years, he completed his real estate examinations and also became sales manager of the residential sales team. Davinder then moved to Harcourts in June 1989 when he was offered a branch manager's position.

This was also the year that Harcourts Group decided to accelerate the company's growth through franchising its branches nationwide; and the Hamilton offices were soon to become available. By late 1990 Davinder reached an agreement with Harcourts for the purchase and franchise of the five Hamilton offices, initially as a partner but then on to sole ownership. Over the next few years, Harcourts Hamilton became not only the major player in the local real estate market, but was also recognised as one of Harcourts most successful franchises. Since 1991 the company has won numerous awards for office and individual sales performances.

In 2004, Davinder decided to sell a 50% share of the company to his good friend and "right hand man" Brian King, who now oversees the day to day operations of the company. In 2005 Davinder became the 7th person to be inducted into the prestigious Harcourts Hall of Fame, which recognises individuals' long standing and significant contribution to the Harcourts Group.

After 25 years with Harcourts, Davinder continues to play a significant role within the Hamilton franchise. He feels privileged to have worked with so many talented people over the years, all of whom have contributed to the ongoing success of the company.
