Jason Happy takes on new role at Simplicity Living

After 24 years with Kiwi Property Management, Jason Happy has made the move to Simplicity Living as Development Manager. Jason will help Simplicity realise their exciting ambitions of building a portfolio of 10,000 more affordable rentals across the country. Initially focused on the Auckland area these homes will allow residents to rent with confidence knowing they can rent long term, with a professional landlord focused on curating connected communities.

The properties will be owned by Simplicity investors through a property fund with the expectation of providing long term secure low risk returns to complement other investment options. Simplicity is a non-profit licensed fund manager of both a KiwiSaver Scheme and investment funds which donates a proportion of its management fees to charity through the Simplicity Foundation.

The first properties are currently under construction with an expectation residents will take occupancy in early 2023. Further projects are in design as Simplicity Living builds towards its ambitions.
