Manawatu & Wanganui

Office: 117 Broadway Ave, Palmerston North

With its stunning mountain ranges and spectacular river, the Manawatu-Whanganui region is a beautiful setting for any lifestyle. And Landmark Homes Manawatu is ready to create your dream home here.

As born-and-bred Manawatu boys, Aaron Shirriffs and Ryan Coombes have an intimate knowledge of the region. Aaron has owned contracting companies for 20 years, working mostly in project management, while Ryan’s expertise stems from his lifelong background in building.

Aaron and Ryan are guys who know what they’re doing. As Managing Director, Aaron’s logical and analytical approach keeps everything running smoothly. Ryan, as QS/Quality Controller, has a keen understanding of construction and an unfaltering eye for detail. Together, they make sure every project is honed to perfection and that the Landmark Homes standard of quality is maintained. Most of all, they strive to provide their clients with the most effective service possible.

Aaron says the Manawatu has seen consistent growth in the past few years as an increasing number of New Zealanders leave the expensive centres behind. Long known as a hub for logistics, military placement and tertiary education, the Manawatu is a lucrative and enticing place to live.

Building someone’s ‘forever’ home is a major part of the satisfaction that Aaron and Ryan get out of being franchisees. “We’re deeply involved with our clients from the moment they walk in our door through every step of the design and construction process to the point of handover,” says Aaron. “We take great pleasure in ensuring that every step is achieved with minimal disruption to our clients and that they enjoy the journey.”

Anyone planning to build a Landmark Home in the Manawatu can expect a warm, friendly, and inviting environment from the beginning to the end of the process. Aaron assures their comprehensive systems and processes make everything as smooth as feasible, from design and selections to construction and pricing.

“We have the best team of experts working with us, all of whom specialise in their fields within our industry,” he says. “And our processes guarantee that at any point you are dealing with our lead professional in either design, material selections, styling, construction, or cost analysis. All of our team members are dedicated to providing the optimum experience for our clients, which revolves around a consistent, transparent, and efficient service.”

Homes Built by Manawatu &Wanganui

  • Kevin and Megan Friel say ...

    “We just love our house and are showing it off to everybody. We had always believed building a house to be an exercise in stress management, but we will build again if the opportunity presents itself as we found the whole experience a breeze – which I know is in no small way directly attributable to your fantastic team. Thanks again to all the team for our excellent house…oops…Landmark!”

  • Pam and Jim Bagnall say ...

    “We have just moved into our new home and have never been so pleased. After building five houses previously, we finally found someone who was very professional and very friendly. Landmark didn't make a promise, then not deliver. We have had top quality in every aspect, and they advised us every step of the way as to which products were long-lasting (even if it meant trooping all over town to get the right product!)
    I can only say, if you are thinking of building, don't make a mistake you will regret, use Landmark Homes.”

  • Tony and Kylie say ...

    “Originally looked at buying an existing house but after talking to Aaron and the Landmark team we found it was just as feasible to build new. The end result (as well as the process along the way!!) has been nothing short of exceptional. We’re so happy that we chose to build with Landmark instead of buying a house! We got everything we wanted and for the budget we set. Highly recommend the Palmy team!!”

  • Pete and Karen say ...

    “We love our new Landmark, from the design right through the colours and fittings. The whole experience was made enjoyable by everyone and, even when there was minor hold ups or hiccups along the way, everything was communicated to us and sorted out immediately. We’re extremely satisfied.”

  • Phil and Candice say ...

    “There was an amount we wanted to invest in our new home and the Landmark team made sure that this worked for us. We have ended up with a lovely new house that we wanted and couldn’t be happier! It certainly stands out (in a good way!!) up in the area we’ve built and looks very impressive, we would definitely suggest working with Landmark.”

  • Steven and Nikita say ...

    “We loved working with Landmark Manawatu! We very much love our new house, it is everything we wanted and more. Landmark Manawatu made the whole process easy and were great people to work with. ”

  • D and R say ...

    “We would like to say thank you to everyone at Landmark Homes Manawatu, especially Monica & Shane who helped us design and build our dream home. From start to finish they made it a pleasurable experience.”
