Kara Harper and Kevin Phillips of Laurelwood have considerable experience across their fields of expertise.

Kara's experience is in heading up the commercial and customer service side of many businesses across New Zealand and Australia making a strong partnership to bring together high-quality homes that we can all be proud to build and own.

Kevin started out as a builder becoming a professional Project Manager leading teams in developing residential and commercial properties throughout New Zealand.

Laurelwood embraces the future generation of housing as we strive to create homes and townhouses for every stage of life. We look forward to you being part of the journey.

Our Support 

Laurelwood is delighted to support CrossFit champion Marnie Sykes.

Marnie is New Zealand Cross Fit Champion for another year, having smashed out her competition to be crowned NZ's Fittest.

Well done Marnie, we admire how hard you work to achieve your goals.

Marnie has represented New Zealand in competitive CrossFit for the past 5 years.  Looking forward to competing in the next round on the world stage at the CrossFit Games, the Torian Pro will be held in Brisbane in May, we wish Marnie all the best.

When she’s not kicking butt on the global stage or being crowned New Zealand’s fittest, Otago University alumni Marnie Sykes is using her bachelor’s degree in sports and exercise science to offer one-on-one personal training in Christchurch, NZ.
