Colliers' residential projects team specialise in finding the right site for your project

Project success starts with identifying the best target markets. It then hinges on the planning and design of the project to ensure not only the highest and best use of the site but the best dwelling mix to ensure market acceptance of the product.

Our residential projects team has more experience in project planning than any other residential agency in New Zealand, resulting in projects that are better than the competition.

The planning process considers all product types to determine the most desirable end product is achieved and a sales rate that can be maximised.

Colliers' residential projects team work alongside developers to optimise project design

We work with developers and the project team to maximise project viability and minimise development risk.

Our recommendations are based on extensive market research gained by feedback from over 100,000 buyers in the marketplace.

This feedback and analysis of your project's capability allows us to plan, price and determine sales rates, enabling you to complete preliminary feasibility with confidence.

Dominique Dowding, CEO (former)

"Colliers International has played a pivotal role in the success of Alexandra Park adding value at the design, marketing and sales stage of our project. 

Colliers collaborated with Auckland Trotting Club, our architects and project managers making recommendations, based on their market knowledge, on product design, internal layouts and product mix. Our apartments have been received with great enthusiasm by the public with terrific sales achievements reflecting the success of the collaborative design process. 
Colliers was able to draw from data they gathered on stage 1 of our project and refine the apartment mix to better align the offering with what we believed stage 2 buyers would demand. 
With unbelievable sales success over the past 12 months, stage 1 and 2 are now under construction. We are extremely happy with the service that Colliers provides with weekly sales reporting keeping our team up to date on everything going on with the project. 
It has been a pleasure to work with Colliers on such a large scale project and we would happily recommend them for future developments."

"What a phenomenal success Botanica, Enfield Street, Mt Eden, Auckland has been with all apartments and terraces sold out within 6 weeks of Public Launch.  Colliers Residential Project Marketing surpassed our sales revenue budget and the speed of sales allowed us to commence construction prior to our agreed timeframes.

We were absolutely delighted with Colliers’ professionalism in identifying the target markets, with input into the design brief, product mix, size and apartment layout critique enabling us to provide a desirable product. Advice on the sales display suite, marketing material and the recommended strategy for pre-launch and public launch marketing achieved our defined objectives.  The Colliers database and VIP pre-launch provided 25% of sales and a well-rehearsed sales track achieved strong conversion of prospects to purchasers.  The on-site Project Sales Consultants and Project Co-ordinator were all first class.  The marketing review, analysis and recommendations were delivered with factual supporting information.  
Colliers Residential Project Marketing team will be our first point of call for all our upcoming residential developments. We would recommend them as their experience and expertise assisted us in achieving our great result.  We really enjoyed the experience and it was a lot of fun."

"Special Projects Team have engaged Colliers International Projects Team in a variety of projects. Pete Evans and his team give a service that adds tremendous value to the development process. From the inception of land procurement and master plan design the Colliers team give confidence and support to critical decisions. Pete’s vast development, marketing and sales experience sets the Colliers project team apart.

Recently the Colliers team have controlled and delivered both marketing and sales for our Boathouse Bay project in Snells beach producing excellent results. The marketing headed by Helena Charleson was exceptional. Creating on point message with evocative marketing assets that made our product irresistible to the target demographic. Almost every purchaser made comment how easy and enjoyable it was to deal with the sales staff on the project. The Colliers team through their professionalism instilled trust in all our clients which the BHB professional team thought was invaluable.

Jeff Davidson gave valuable assistance with the contract detail and contract delivery and Pete Evans guided the market pricing masterfully. 

I would recommend the Colliers Project Team to any project and the Special Projects Team thank them for their expertise and guidance."
