Colleen Walters

“Get the job done,” might be a fitting mantra for Colleen, General Manager of Landmark’s Auckland South & Franklin branch. Not in a mercenary way though — it’s a big part of her character to follow through with what she has promised. That also might be why she’d make a great Event Manager if she wasn’t helping people build their new home. She’s not only super organised, she has a vision for how to pull things together well. When it comes to people’s dreams, that makes for a potent partnership. If you’re passionate about your vision and want the vision executed perfectly, Colleen is the type of person who will help you make that happen. Outside the office, life is about family and friends, travel (she loves anywhere hot and has a preference for Europe drawing inspiration from the Architectural history), and being out on the water as a family to find that perfect fishing spot. Most of all she is proud of the bond she shares with her family: “We are always there for each other, our kids are our everything.

Franchisee/Construction Manager

For Michael Walters, helping a client build their dream home is more than a job, it reflects his entire view of life. It says everything about Michael that if he wasn’t building homes he would be coaching — helping other people be the best they can be. People who know Michael will tell you he’s able to think outside the box, but it’s also more than that — it’s about a real heart for the community. When it comes to building homes, that all translates to helping people realise their dreams, no matter how way out they might seem. All Michael needs is a down-to-earth client who’s excited about their vision. Fancy building creating a rural retreat or bach on the beach? He’s already been there done that and would help you realise your goals too. Michael would be the first to tell you that life is best when it’s shared — in his case with wife and partner Colleen and two kids, Matthew, Brooklynn and dog (Storm). In fact, one of Michael’s most favourite things is the outdoors, precisely because “both my kids have done lots of hikes through scouts where we have shared great memories and help others kids in the community to experience this passion.”

Bonita Lim

New Home Consultant

A former designer and art director, Bonita brings to Landmark a honed ability to understand her client’s ideas and needs which is the first step in bringing their new home to life. “It’s nice taking the time to get to know people and building friendships as well as homes. I enjoy working with my clients to bring their ideas together into a well-designed home that they will love living in”. Growing up in a rural setting and spending long hot summers at the beach means Bonita has a love of nature and is inspired by country living and the ocean. Although she enjoys travelling to exotic places, Bonita is a self-confessed home body and enjoys gardening, reading or working on a creative DIY project like up-cycling antique furniture. Bonita is also a keen foodie, so when making time to catch up with friends and family or entertaining at home those gatherings usually involve amazing food paired with great wine! Her dream client is someone who knows what they want. With a consultant like Bonita, you can trust that you will end up with a home that is all that you imagined. All it takes is a dream; her partnership with you takes care of the rest.

Rachelle Allen

New Home Consultant

Rachelle Allen's favourite pastime sounds a lot like a Bruce Springsteen record. You know the one: "I got a '69 Chevy with a 396 ..." (Racing In the Street). Like Bruce, Rachelle likes nothing better than cruising in her 56 Chevy, listening to music and taking in NZ's beautiful scenery. But life's not all about leisure for Rachelle. In fact, when it comes to being a New Home Consultant for Landmark, you could say she's a bit of a boss. Rachelle's dream client is one who knows where to start on their plan—because that's where she comes in. Her own dream house is something she designed so she knows what she's talking about. After 10 years as a New Home Consultant, Rachelle's record speaks for itself. If you are looking for a consultant who is easy going, enthusiastic with long standing industry knowledge then Rachelle definitely ticks all the boxes.

Isobel Morbey

There’s a good reason a baker’s dozen always includes one extra, and it’s not just so the baker gets one for herself. It’s because bakers are used to going the extra mile. Isobel Morbey should know — not only did she work as a barista in a bakery before joining Landmark, but she also goes the extra mile in everything she does. If there’s anyone renowned at Landmark for finding solutions, it’s Isobel. Which makes her the ideal office administrator and receptionist. It might also explain why she’s been taking on further personal development, by reading motivational books from world business leaders. The opportunity to develop and learn to meet client’s expectations from these leaders certainly bucks expectations — like Isobel. Isobel’s dream client is someone who is passionate, and her favourite Landmark home is The Akaroa, with its family friendly kitchen space — which Isobel would quite happily build in a bush setting for her and her beautiful children (and three gorgeous fur/feather babies).

Will Giles

Project Manager

A former Architectural Designer with management experience in some of New Zealand’s challenging projects, Will brings strong technical knowledge to every job. With this previous experience, Will is able to maintain your project vision from start to finish. “It’s always a rewarding feeling seeing a project through from the start to the end. Its good getting to know clients, as I can bring their ideas to life in their finished home. I’m committed to delivering a high-end product that my clients can be proud to own”. Growing up in Christchurch NZ, Will was the son of a builder and was dragged out on building sites since the age of 9. Will has a keen interest in playing golf and surfing, if there’s a beach or golf course nearby you’ll probably find him there in his spare time. Having a Project Manager like Will means you’ve got someone who has an eye for design and an eye for detail, the perfect combination.
