WE ARE YOUR LOCALS
Landmark Homes are pleased to welcome Colleen & Michael Walters as our new Auckland South & Franklin franchisees.
With their combined expertise in construction and customer service, Colleen and Michael bring a new level of know-how to Auckland South and Franklin. Having previously owned their own plumbing and roofing company in Whangaparaoa, Colleen and Michael know the building industry inside out. They have each worked in major New Zealand companies within the building materials industry and have even built several of their own homes.
The Walters are passionate about getting a job done right. Colleen’s career began in the hectic world of event and conference management. More recently, she spent several years in managerial roles with another group home builder. A plumber and roofer by trade, Michael’s background includes senior management roles with New Zealand Steel and Monier.
Colleen says they love working with people and will be with their clients every step of the way. They are especially looking forward to seeing their region develop. Franklin is growing in popularity, and Landmark Homes Auckland South & Franklin is an approved building partner for Paerata Rise. This 300-hectare urban development between Karaka and Pukekohe opened to the public in December 2018 and will see 4500 homes built over the next 20 years. Plans include neighbourhood reserves, schools, a retail precinct and a transport hub to Auckland.
Colleen says the area has huge potential for any lifestyle, especially families. “There’s a lot more land available here and more opportunities for families to be together. It’s already like a little community,” she says. She and Michael are confident that their knowledge and experience will go a long way in bringing their clients’ dreams to life.
Colleen says the key to maintaining good relationships is to be part of the team, rather than managing from the top. “We’ve been in the industry a long time and we know what works. We’re here to provide incredible service – not just at the beginning, but right throughout the build.”
Their first showhome is currently underway, with plans for an opening in August 2020.
