  • “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!”

    — Kevin and Megan Friel

  • “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.”

    — Pam and Jim Bagnall

  • “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!!”

    — Tony and Kylie

  • “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.”

    — Pete and Karen

  • “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.”

    — Phil and Candice

  • “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. ”

    — Steven and Nikita

  • “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.”

    — D and R

  • “We are sitting on our deck off the kitchen having a very nice glass of red. Looking at the view, sitting in the sun.
    You listened, you have designed and built a dream come true.
    We have never built, we have always bought land with accommodation. We have altered to make the best of what we had.
    Thank you for listening, thank you for working with us and most probably frustrated the hell out of you.
    We wouldn’t alter anything. Our beautiful home is a dream come true.
    We realise that it is your work, but for us it was a leap of faith.
    Me, I wake up every morning and look at my home, at night I do the same. My home is simply stunning, most probably would never win house of the year, but it is exactly what I dreamed of.
    Simply stunning.
    Thank you for listening, thank you for interpreting our dream to a reality.
    If and it is a BIG IF, we were ever to build again, we would build with Landmark Homes.”

    — David & Liz Mills
