With approximately 150,000 urban residents, Tauranga is the fifth largest city in New Zealand by population and projected to grow significantly over the next 30 years.

As local residents ourselves, we consider the Bay of Plenty the perfect place to live. Tucked along the northern coast of New Zealand, this slice of paradise boasts white-sand beaches and a subtropical summer climate as well as quality schooling, excellent career opportunities and a vibrant city scene.

Picturesque water views seen from all angles and Tauranga’s surrounding land used to grow delicious, fresh produce – a life in the Bay of Plenty lends itself to a lifestyle of leisure and vitality. However, it’s the changing landscape of the city and growth in the suburbs creating property development opportunities that reinforce the desirability of this region. While the number of new subdivisions increase rapidly, so many areas of this beautiful city still remain untapped.

With its rising population as well as thriving agricultural, horticultural and tourism industry – biodiversity conservation and ‘green-space’ initiatives are as plentiful as the region itself, making this coastal metropolitan location an increasingly valuable place to invest as it is to live and work?

We’re experts in residential and commercial property development with more than 10 years of experience in the real estate industry.

We’re a small and dedicated team with an excellent reputation in the Bay of Plenty. Our highly skilled staff are experienced in project management, legal, construction, finance, real estate, architecture and design. 

Our job is to ensure our clients benefit, which is why we are committed to developing sustainable, high-quality homes and developments that are not only worthy investments, but honor the unique local ecosystem, landscape and identity of this special region.

Our dedication to ensuring our purchasers are satisfied and well-informed is driven by the value we experience of living here ourselves.

When translated from French, our family name, ‘Honoré,’ means to regard with great respect. Considering our appreciation for this regions’ rich māori heritage, beautiful, natural resources and all its potential, our namesake simply reflects our values, reputation and approach.

The opportunity to build on a section in the incredibly vibrant, abundant and evolving Bay of Plenty is a dream to many people. We have taken pride in making that dream a reality for hundreds of clients by delivering high-quality properties since 2009. Our accomplished and seasoned team is committed to building relationships with our clients to ensure they get not only a great investment for years to come, but a lifestyle that also aligns with who they are.
