Christchurch is still the Garden City, and Landmark Homes Christchurch has been there long enough to assure you it’s still a wonderful place to live.
Coralie and Stephen Pollard have owned Landmark Homes Canterbury since 2007, which makes them the longest-serving Landmark Home franchisees. In that time, their staff of two has now grown to 10.
“We just like building houses!” Coralie says. “I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.”
Coralie and Stephen both began their careers in the construction industry. Coralie was a quantity surveyor while Stephen is a builder by trade. Stephen’s experience in construction, health and safety and quality control makes him the technical side of the business, while Coralie is the one “at the coalface”, managing the sales, administration and contractors.
What they love about Landmark Homes is the variety. Where other building companies tend to produce the same thing ten times over, Landmark stands out.
“We’ve never built the same home twice. Every customer is different, and every home is different. It’s a constant challenge and you’re meeting people along the way. That’s what keeps us interested,” says Coralie.
Building in Christchurch has come a long way in recent years. Coralie says it’s been an interesting and stressful time – but the city is bouncing back.
“We’ve built some amazing homes for people, especially those affected by the earthquake. Getting them back into their homes has been hugely rewarding.
Their point of difference is to cater for all budgets – from the small 3-bedroom first home to the million-dollar dream home.
Dealing with emotional aftermath of the earthquake has been tough, and the Landmark team work hard to make the building journey as pain-free as possible. That means taking care of the extra red tape.
“We navigate the insurance process and help them decide what they can put back. Once we get through all those roadblocks, everyone starts getting excited about building again.”
As well as being home to “the best rugby team in New Zealand!”, Coralie insists there are plenty of reasons to live in Christchurch.
“This is a place that has been repaired, but our people don’t knock over easily. We’ve got lots of new infrastructure, and everything is looking bright and fresh. We want to welcome people back to the city – wearing red and black, of course!”

“I couldn’t recommend the team at Landmark Homes more highly. Going into my first ever build, I was told by others that it could be a stressful and nerve wracking few months. Now that I’m in my new home, I look back and realise how lucky I was to choose the expertise and guidance of the guys at Landmark. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I couldn’t be happier with the result and I’ll definitely be recommending Landmark Homes to anyone looking to build in the future.”
