Colleen & Michael Walters are our new Auckland South & Franklin franchisees, and with their combined expertise in construction and customer service, will 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.

For Michael Walters, helping a client build their dream home is more than a job, it reflects his entire view of life. It says everything about Michael that if he wasn’t building homes he would be coaching — helping other people be the best they can be. People who know Michael will tell you he’s able to think outside the box, but it’s also more than that — it’s about a real heart for the community. When it comes to building homes, that all translates to helping people realise their dreams, no matter how way out they might seem. All Michael needs is a down-to-earth client who’s excited about their vision. Fancy building creating a rural retreat or bach on the beach? He’s already been there done that and would help you realise your goals too. Michael would be the first to tell you that life is best when it’s shared — in his case with wife and partner Colleen and two kids, Matthew, Brooklynn and dog (Storm). In fact, one of Michael’s most favourite things is the outdoors, precisely because “both my kids have done lots of hikes through scouts where we have shared great memories and help others kids in the community to experience this passion.”

“Get the job done,” might be a fitting mantra for Colleen, General Manager of Landmark’s Auckland South & Franklin branch. Not in a mercenary way though — it’s a big part of her character to follow through with what she has promised. That also might be why she’d make a great Event Manager if she wasn’t helping people build their new home. She’s not only super organised, she has a vision for how to pull things together well. When it comes to people’s dreams, that makes for a potent partnership. If you’re passionate about your vision and want the vision executed perfectly, Colleen is the type of person who will help you make that happen. Outside the office, life is about family and friends, travel (she loves anywhere hot and has a preference for Europe drawing inspiration from the Architectural history), and being out on the water as a family to find that perfect fishing spot. Most of all she is proud of the bond she shares with her family: “We are always there for each other, our kids are our everything.

A former designer and art director, Bonita brings to Landmark a honed ability to understand her client’s ideas and needs which is the first step in bringing their new home to life. “It’s nice taking the time to get to know people and building friendships as well as homes. I enjoy working with my clients to bring their ideas together into a well-designed home that they will love living in”. Growing up in a rural setting and spending long hot summers at the beach means Bonita has a love of nature and is inspired by country living and the ocean. Although she enjoys travelling to exotic places, Bonita is a self-confessed home body and enjoys gardening, reading or working on a creative DIY project like up-cycling antique furniture. Bonita is also a keen foodie, so when making time to catch up with friends and family or entertaining at home those gatherings usually involve amazing food paired with great wine! Her dream client is someone who knows what they want. With a consultant like Bonita, you can trust that you will end up with a home that is all that you imagined. All it takes is a dream; her partnership with you takes care of the rest.

There’s a good reason a baker’s dozen always includes one extra, and it’s not just so the baker gets one for herself. It’s because bakers are used to going the extra mile. Isobel Morbey should know — not only did she work as a barista in a bakery before joining Landmark, but she also goes the extra mile in everything she does. If there’s anyone renowned at Landmark for finding solutions, it’s Isobel. Which makes her the ideal office administrator and receptionist. It might also explain why she’s been taking on further personal development, by reading motivational books from world business leaders. The opportunity to develop and learn to meet client’s expectations from these leaders certainly bucks expectations — like Isobel. Isobel’s dream client is someone who is passionate, and her favourite Landmark home is The Akaroa, with its family friendly kitchen space — which Isobel would quite happily build in a bush setting for her and her beautiful children (and three gorgeous fur/feather babies).
