Thinking of building your dream home in Canterbury? Find out how the Landmark Christchurch team can make your dream a reality!

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!”

Its pretty satisfying when anyone associated with Landmark, but particularly a franchisee, says their dream home is the very house that Landmark built for them. Built in 2013, Coralie says its exactly the home she wanted. “ Deciding on the style was the hardest decision, as we are spoiled for choice with the range of lovely homes that we build, and I wanted something really special, I’m pleased to say that the result was everything I hoped it to be”. Coralie's role as Commercial Manager encompasses the sales and operations side of the business; she is personally involved from the outset of a project working alongside the sales team to contract stage, and then heads up the operations team responsible for delivery of the homes. It’s a challenging and busy job, but she loves it. “Its exciting to see these homes through from the very first day to handover to the customer, and we are now starting to see existing customers coming back to build for the second and third time, which is the highest praise’. In her spare time, Coralie is furthering her education through tertiary studies, which is a part of being a good role model and encourages other staff to seek further training and development. Receiving the Hays Award for Women in Construction in New Zealand in 2014 was a proud moment for her and a career highlight.

The best way to picture Steve Pollard is as a character in a wilderness movie, like A River Runs Through It, out on his boat, fishing then hunting, walking back to the hut with a deer across his back and spending the rest of the evening drinking wine and eating venison. We're pretty sure that's the best version he has of himself too. It's a pretty rich counterbalance to the life of a franchisee and New Home Consultant. But there are plenty of crossovers. The biggest is that, in a similar way to fishing or hunting, it's the next client that is the dream client. It's the next house that is the dream house. His favourite house is 'the last one'. That's what living wild is all about, living on the edge, but it's also what being there for a client is all about too — giving this one, this moment, everything you have.

Amanda Coster

New Home Consultant

Amanda Coster is a rare breed. Sure, she worked in the building industry before joining Landmark this year, so not much out of the ordinary there. But when you dig a little below the surface, you discover Amanda is a real surprise packet. For example, she admits she’s the most likely person at Landmark to get in the boxing ring. That’s right! There’s nothing Amanda loves more than pulling on the gloves. “I love going to Body Combat and sparring at the gym with friends,” Amanda says. “Fitness is important to me.” Which is probably why, when she retires, Amanda plans to kayak — yes, kayak! — around Greece. After which, she’ll probably travel the world (but just the hot places). More than anything though, life for Amanda is about relationships. Nothing makes her more proud than her beautiful family (husband and three girls) and her amazing friends of many years - and that appreciation of people also extends to her clients. “I love meeting new and interesting people,” Amanda says. “I just love my job.”
