Our People in

New Plymouth & Taranaki

Scott Vile has been building since 2003, so he knows how to build an award-winning Landmark home. Both the franchise owner of Landmark Homes Taranaki and director of his own company, Build Taranaki Ltd, Scott started out as a building apprentice in 2007 and has gone on to create masterpieces all over Taranaki.

In 2019, Landmark Homes Taranaki scooped up four wins at the House of the Year Awards, including New Home $600,000–$750,000 (Gold Reserve and Category Winner) and the New Home $450,000–$600,000 (Gold Reserve and Category Winner) award categories.

They were also named Franchise of the Year at Landmark Homes’ 2017 and 2019 National Awards. Scott’s plans for the future are fairly simple: to keep meeting good people and building stunning homes for them. Looking for a builder in Taranaki or New Plymouth?

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.

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.'

    A big thank you to Kezia who we know went well beyond her role to source a number of extras so we had exactly what we wanted and to you Scott. We know you did your very best throughout the project, gave up much of your time and went the extra mile for us. We appreciate that you took it upon yourself to undertake so many hidden extras to make the house what it is. It certainly felt like home from the day we moved in.
    Once again thank you and your team so very much”

  • “From our first phone call through to handing over our new home a few months later, our association with Landmark Homes Taranaki was nothing but positive. Everyone we worked with was professional and helpful and we felt that our individual needs were listened to and responded to at all stages. The house itself plus all the fixtures and fittings are finished to a very high standard. We love the design and we love the spaces.

    The whole process was exciting and a whole lot of fun. We’ve been in our new home for a couple of months now and we couldn’t be happier. ”

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.
