We do things a little different at Resi Ventures.
We believe that the best financial returns come from creating residential developments that people love to live in. By always keeping the end customers – lot purchasers – in mind, we ensure that everyone in the equation benefits. We create master plans that give future homeowners what they really want, amplifying the project returns which we pass on to the Landowner. People are at the centre of our design and development approach. We understand that life is many different things to different people, and we build our communities to reflect that – real places where people live, work, shop and play.

"No question was ever left unanswered."
Going down the Land Development Agreement path has been a seamless process in which we had no surprises along the way. I have learnt a lot about property development and what it takes so I’m glad we engaged with Resi Ventures to complete this project. Their responsiveness in fielding our questions upfront and ongoing queries has been a 10 out of 10 as there was never anything left unanswered.
I would like to thank Anthony and Khurram for their professional approach during this journey which has been a long road but one worth the ride as it has maximised the realisation of our property compared to a direct sale. The availability to speak with either a director or staff member at any stage of the project with any queries, even when they weren’t related to property development went beyond what we expected of them.
"Allowed us to retain our home."
Resi Ventures Land Development Agreement was very fair and allowed us to retain our home, which was a deal maker for us. Anthony and Khurram presented really well and came with a solid background and prior experience in development.
There were no surprises. Everything really went to plan. The project has proceeded really quickly. The biggest benefit was that we were able to retain our home and Resi worked with us to do this. Resi Ventures have definitely lived up to everything they promised. Our queries were always responded to very quickly and efficiently. Thank you for a great stress-free working relationship Anthony, Khurram and team. The estate is already looking fabulous and you should both be very proud of what you have achieved in creating what will be a beautiful community to live in.
