Who we are

A story of innovation, ingenuity and professionalism

Committed to providing New Zealanders with seamless building solutions, KEY2 was established in 2003 by Russell Benshaw.  Initially based in Ponsonby, Auckland, this boutique real estate company specialised in residential and small commercial projects.  

As KEY2 quickly became a competitive market player, it moved to Albany and diversified into townhouse and city fringe residential building, both the investment and owner-occupier markets.

Following their success in 2005 in the Australian market, specialising in the innovative  concept of providing a total design and build solution alongside the sale of bare land, Russell identified a similar product in the Auckland market.  Because KEY2 could be more competitive than the existing market players, the company rapidly expanded.

KEY2's unique approach to home building has meant that its services have been welcomed by New Zealanders looking for personal, professional service, competitive prices and an all-inclusive home solution - from the ground up.

KEY2 now offers one of Auckland's largest range of house and land packages.

Our dedicated team sold over 1,000 properties unconditionally from Kerikeri in the north to Christchurch in the south in the past 3 years.

Individual sales range from $220,000 to $15 million.

With 20 licensed salespeople operating from our five KEY2 offices located in Pukekohe, Albany, Silverdale, Kerikeri and Christchurch, we have the regions covered - making us local and accessible to both vendors and buyers.

We pride ourselves on our specialist NEW PROPERTY market knowledge and key relationships with developers, builders, and designers so if you're looking to develop and sell new property, our team can make it happen.
