Suburban Estates has its name proudly displayed at some of the most sought after residential developments in New Zealand.

Since inception in 1957, Suburban Estates has been in the business of residential land development, transforming numerous sites into highly desirable developments and properties for literally thousands of people.

All our developments begin with sourcing land which holds the promise of future potential, both in terms of lifestyle opportunities and capital gains. The old real estate adage which holds that ‘location is everything’ is fundamental in our pre-planning and acquisition process.

Proximity to local community services and amenities, plus ease of access to metropolitan areas are vitally important considerations. So too is our commitment to enhance the environmental presentation so that generations of New Zealanders can continue to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

Our vast experience enables us to not only recognise current trends, but also to predict them and seize valuable opportunities by being proactive. Within that, four basic principles hold the key to our success – the right location, design innovation, a commitment to quality and proven expertise. Without exception these are the foundations upon which all Suburban Estates developments are built.
