A New Owner for David Reid Homes Waikato to continue the Award Winning Legacy

David Reid Homes is excited to announce a new owner for our Waikato franchise, Paul Mens. The regional experts from Te Kauwhata South to Raglan on the West, through to the Kaimai’s on the East.

Paul purchased David Reid Homes Waikato from long time owners, Ben and Karina Green, who are embarking on a new venture, launching David Reid Homes Coromandel and Hauraki. They spent the last 14 years crafting designer homes throughout the Waikato, and having owned the David Reid Homes Waikato franchise since 2009, they are excited to be able to offer their passion and expertise in the Coromandel region.

Born and raised in Waikato, Paul brings with him a successful career in corporate management roles, and residential property developments, launching his building business GPM Building in 2016.  On choosing David Reid Homes, Paul said “I decided I didn’t want to be the same as the other builders and wanted to lead a company that really provided houses that match the desires and personalities of the owners.”

The team’s vision for the company is to set apart David Reid Homes Waikato apart from other regional building companies by continuing the franchise’s legacy of providing more than just another construction company. Showing customers what they can achieve within their budget, and then delivering something they can be truly proud of is the same ethos Paul will continue to provide in the Waikato region as the franchise has for the last 14 years.

A number of exciting current projects are in the process of being completed, some of which Paul believes are being built to standards that could well be award winning homes once completed, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

Exciting new projects for the franchise include 7 builds in a single new subdivision, and a new showhome in Te Awamutu, which is due to open in March of 2021. These builds are going to appeal to more conservative budgets. In addition, David Reid Homes Waikato will be in the future securing a larger show home that showcases the best of the team’s experience and skills on the higher end.

Creating inspired and beautifully crafted architectural homes is what the team at David Reid Homes Waikato are passionate about, and they are well deserving of the many top building industry awards they have received since the beginning of 2009, including multiple Master Build Awards.
