WE ARE YOUR LOCALS
Office: 116 Claret Ash Drive, Taupo
If you’ve always dreamed of a home by the water, you can’t go wrong in Taupo, Rotorua or Whakatane. And Landmark Homes are just the team to create your dream home.
With 20 years of building under his belt, Landmark Homes franchise owner Steven Painter knows a thing or two about beautiful homes. Originally from Hawkes Bay, he went straight into a building apprenticeship after high school. He then moved to Taupo to build his parents’ home and never left (and his parents are still in that home.)
After running his own building company for several years, Steven and co-owner Gerry Schumacher teamed up to take on the Taupo-Rotorua-Whakatane franchise.
Steven takes enormous pride in his work. His long years as a Master Builder and licensed building practitioner have proved invaluable to running the franchise, particularly in such a large region.
“Being an experienced builder definitely helps you understand the risks around key areas, and that’s important when you’re speaking to clients,” he says. “I take them through the process right from the design stage and tell them what works.”
The best part, he says, is in creating something truly stunning.
“There’s a huge satisfaction in building a home and knowing you’ve completed something that’s going to be around a long time. Ten years down the track I’ll be able to point out homes to my kids and say, hey, I built that!”
Co-owner Gerry is the customer service side of the franchise. As an accountant and the former Business Development Manager for Landmark Homes NZ, he’s the expert on budgeting and planning.
Both agree that the eastern Bay of Plenty is a great spot. Taupo is the adventure capital of New Zealand, which makes it ideal for the active folk. Whakatane and Rotorua boast stunning scenery and natural wonders.
Whoever bowls into their Taupo office can expect a smile, a happy vibe and a positive experience.
“Almost every one of us has built a house so we’ve pretty much got it covered. There shouldn’t be anything that we don’t know,” says Steven.

“It is a real pleasure to be able to recommend Landmark Homes. From our first contact with Landmark's New Home Consultant Angeleine - whose expertise and assistance sealed the deal for us... we were 'sold' - Landmark was just who we were looking for to build our home!
In fact, what a great dedicated team they all make - from the Office staff - Mary, Construction assistant Alise; Tony the Construction Manager's attention to detail, right up to Gerry, one of the 'approachable' directors!
This was the first home we had built - as we had always bought existing homes in the past and we found the whole experience 'worry-free'. Tony (Construction Manager) beavered.
away to keep the build on track and as a result, we moved in on time and are thrilled with our new quality home. It is everything we need and more.
Thank you, Landmark Homes we have really appreciated the great experience.”
