Hamilton & Waikato


Hamilton & Waikato

With its stunning natural features and diverse amenities, the mighty Waikato is a prime location for building a dream home. And Landmark Homes Hamilton and Waikato are just the team to build it.

While most Landmark franchisees have come from the building industry, director Will Quigley was previously a farmer, businessman and personal trainer. He joined Landmark in 2010 after a stint in the US, and in 2014 he added his project manager, Nigel Watson, as a partner.

Will says his diverse background hits all the right notes with his rural clients.

“As a farmer, you’ve got to be a jack of all trades, so that’s a real advantage. When we start talking they can tell I’m a farmer too, and we just click. Farmers are pretty switched-on people – they like to go with their gut instinct,” he says.

While Will handles the clients, Nigel takes care of the technical side. A lifelong builder, qualified carpenter and previously the owner of his own building company, Nigel is an expert on home construction.

Waikato homebuilders are typically after large, classic country homes on lifestyle blocks or on the outskirts of city suburbs. Whatever the request, Landmark Homes make sure the clients’ journey is a smooth one. Will and Nigel take care of everything from consents and earthworks to landscaping the garden or installing a swimming pool.

“We help them with the whole process, right from the beginning. Someone who’s never built before can be confident about talking with us and we’ll walk them through it all,” says Will.

Building homes does bring its challenges, he says, but that challenge is all part of a job done well. The best part of building is making that dream come true. “That’s what gives you the adrenaline rush,” he says. “It’s quite an emotional ride for people. You can tell how excited the clients are when they sign the contract, and so it’s quite a buzz when you finally hand the keys over.”

Nigel Watson

Franchisee since 2014

There's something very down-to-earth but also perfect about Nigel Watson's approach to life. For example, his dream alternative career is being an All Black. And why not? His favourite food is a good burger and chips, and in a perfect fantasy world being a prime athlete and eating fast food would belong together. When it comes to building Landmark homes for clients, however, there's no need to create a fantasy world — because giving clients their dreams is entirely within reach. In fact, it's so achievable Nigel can't pick his favourite Landmark home. 'It's all the stunning Landmark homes I have been a part of,' he says. That includes the family home Nigel built with his beautiful wife Liana, where they get to entertain and relax in the country. And if their wedding vows are anything to go by, the Watson house isn't short on entertainment. 'I haven't laughed so hard since my wife said, "I take you James Bond," in our wedding vows.' We can tell you this — Nigel’s neither shaken nor stirred!

Will Quigley

Franchisee since 2011

027 858 1230

Will Quigley lived and owned a business in the US before joining Landmark in 2011, and his go-get-em attitude and positive take on absolutely everything smacks of someone who has arrived from Stateside. He loves the same attitude in others too — nothing inspires him more than happy, positive people with a smile on their face. 'My dream client is someone that knows what they want and has an unlimited budget,' Will says. And don't we all. Will doesn't stop there. Will loves it when a client has built up so much trust that they let Landmark do what we do best — build great homes. ‘Then they’re still your best friend at the completion.' That last thing is the point for Will — building the absolute best home for someone in a way that makes them more than a client. 'I'm the most likely Landmark person to never settle for mediocrity,' Will says. 'I'm always wanting to be better.' We couldn't agree more — and it's a trait that benefits everyone around him.

Ceri Smith

New Home Consultant since 2017

It speaks volumes about Ceri Smith that her clients often become her closest friends. That's because of the attention she pays to every project, from the very beginning right through to completion and beyond. That's what comes of 25 years in the industry, throughout which Ceri has journeyed with many clients to achieve their new dream home. Having been involved in all aspects of the building industry, Ceri is able to offer constructive ideas during the design phase, while keeping a close eye on the level of investment and lifestyle her clients want and hope to enjoy. It's the finer details that make any building project the 'dream home', and Ceri has an eye for those too. We asked Ceri what gives her the most satisfaction. Unsurprisingly, it's about making her clients happy and excited about their new home. 'Communication and a commitment to excellence during not only the planning but construction phase is the key,' Ceri says. And we can vouch for that.

Joshua Williamson

New Home Consultant since 2016

027 202 7193

There's something very calming about Joshua Williamson, which is perfect when a client is stressing about their new home. We figure it has a lot to do with the three Bs in Josh's life: Boo (pictured), Bert and Bruno, the three dogs he shares with his husband. 'They're my children,' he says. 'I have always loved animals.' So much so that if Josh wasn't selling homes for Landmark he'd probably be fulfilling his alternative dream career — dog sitter. So much else is peaceful about Josh's life too. He draws inspiration from the arts, loves cake, dreams of travelling through Europe, and is most proud of the family he has created. His dream house is something mid-century inspired and his favourite Landmark home is the Northlake. 'My dream client is someone excited to work with Landmark Homes,' Josh says. And when they get to work with Josh, that's an absolute guarantee.
