How It All Began…

Our goal has always been to be NZ’s most honest and open property website.

 

It All Started With Employee #1

Jamie saw the opportunity to create a platform where property data was free and available for everyone. When arriving in NZ he noticed that with hardly any For sale properties with prices on them – all Auction, PBN etc. 

With a helping hand from Michael Gibbs (employee #2) homes.co.nz came into fruition. Our product lead Brayden Gosse (employee #4) and Darryl (employee #5) joined shortly after and are still here today.
