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

Scott Vile has been building since 2003 – and he knows how to build an award-winning Landmark.

Scott is both the franchise owner of Landmark Homes Taranaki and the director of his own company, Build Taranaki Ltd. He started out with a building apprenticeship in 2007 and has gone on to create masterpieces all over Taranaki.

In 2019, Landmark Homes Taranaki scooped a whopping four awards at the House of the Year awards, including New Home $600,000 – $750,000 Gold Reserve and Category and the PlaceMakers New Home $450,000 – $600,000 Gold Reserve and Category.

They were also named Franchise of the Year in both the 2017 and 2019 Landmark Homes National awards.

As a Licensed Building Practitioner and born-and-bred Taranaki local, Scott loves creating dream homes for his clients.

“The best part is the handover at the end. The satisfaction you get from that finished product – seeing how things look on a plan, and then making them come to life.”

Despite his success, Scott is a pretty modest sort of bloke. His secret is simply good design – and good clients. He makes sure that the project manager is in touch regularly with updates throughout the entire process. “We’re there for the journey. We’re not trying to sell a used car – we’re there to make sure they’re happy right to the end.”

Much of their success comes down to good word of mouth. Clients are always happy to refer their friends to Landmark Homes Taranaki – and that’s what drives his ethos.

Scott also understands that clients will sometimes want to make changes during the build – and that’s fine. Not surprisingly, he and his team have also won the Landmark Homes Client Communication award three times. “We’re a friendly team and everyone’s really knowledgeable. Nothing’s ever a problem.”

Taranaki is perfect for any lifestyle, he says. The New Plymouth coastal walkway is a huge drawcard for active folk – and the view of Mount Taranaki isn’t bad, either.

Scott’s plans for the future are fairly simple: to keep meeting good people, and to keep building stunning homes for them.

Apart from his wife Natalie and their two boys, Bentley and Jordan (together with the team at Landmark Homes Taranaki, of course), Scott Vile's favourite thing in the world is his 1968 Chevy Camaro SS. And why wouldn't it be? He'd dreamed of the car since he was a little boy — it’s the stuff of legendary Hollywood movies and Bruce Springsteen songs. That he was able to make his dream a reality tells you a lot about Scott. Before becoming a Landmark franchisee in 2014, Scott ran a construction company with a team of up to six builders, and was on the tools himself. So he knows all aspects of the building trade. And as someone with his experience and know-how, creative designers and creative clients are still what inspire him the most. Even when we asked Scott about his dream alternative career, it wasn't very alternative at all. 'Unsure, as long as it's in the building industry,' he said. For some people, it's just in their DNA.

Picture this: you wake up to the sound of waves crashing on a beach, hop out of bed and throw open the bi-fold doors … then walk straight out upon the cool sand. Another morning in Paradise. That’s Nikki Jones’s dream home, and what a dream it is! Building dream houses is one reason Nikki is a new home consultant for Landmark, where she gets to share in making other people’s dreams a reality; a journey she looks forward to as much as the client. Nikki’s something of an adventurer, in work and in life. She appreciates people who dare to take risks — which means that no dream is too big. But she’s also inspired by people who spend their time for others, which makes her the ideal guide on what could well be the biggest and most important decision of your life. Married for 20 years with four awesome children, Nikki’s goal is to always look for great life experiences.

Melissa Newton doesn't have to think too hard about her dream house — because she's living in it. What's more, she only finished building it in February. So when it comes to helping a client build their dream home, Melissa has fresh experience. Which is why she knows the best client is easygoing and lets Landmark do the heavy lifting. 'I enjoy every build that Landmark does and treat it as I would my own,' Melissa says, and it's so true. Melissa shares her home with her husband and three teenagers, as well as two Staffordshire terriers and one Devon Rex cat. She adores her children, but still, she also knows how to relax. Her dream holiday is lying on a beach on a tropical island; and her dream alternative career? 'A holiday reviewer with all expenses paid.' We can imagine it too. Wherever Melissa might end up in the world, she's sure to be having fun. 'I haven't laughed so hard since I watched Bohemian Rhapsody with some girlfriends after a couple of wines,’ she admits to us. ‘I could not stop laughing at those teeth.'
