Whilst founded in 2005, the origins of Gillies Group can actually be traced as far back as 1990 with the purchase of Howard Real Estate in Upper Hutt. In those days the company had just one Agent and a market share of 1%.
In 1994 the company bought and merged with Mark Real Estate to form Howard & Mark Real Estate, and was subsequently renamed Professionals, Gillies and Mark Real Estate three years later. Today, Gillies and Mark dominates Upper Hutt with a market share consistently in excess of 45%.
Upper Hutt Developments was formed to create large scale residential sub-divisions in Upper Hutt. This company has been responsible for bringing a number of high quality sub-divisions to the market including Waitoka Estate, Emerald Hill, Marua Palms, Pinehill, Kingsley Heights, Riverstone Terraces and Mount Marua. The success of these developments and their associated marketing of Upper Hutt has been a major catalyst in the City’s economic prosperity over recent years.
The natural progression was to launch a construction company to build homes on the sections developed by UHD. This company secured the Golden Homes franchise for the entire lower North Island. Golden Homes offers Kiwis an excellent value for money option for building a brand new home on a flat section.
During the first year of operation (2005) Gillies Group built more than 100 homes. In total Gillies Group has built in excess of 500 homes. Homes can be built on land sourced through the wider Group, or on land provided by the client.
This breadth of service, supported by a team of experienced and customer-focused professionals, has positioned Gillies Group as the place to go for all your residential property needs.
