Burbank Group’s home construction seeks greater reach
With over years of history, the Burbank umbrella encompasses land development, finance and utility services to supplement its home construction business
People across Asia are seeing the appeal of moving to a new country or owning a second home as an investment, and Australia’s Burbank Group of Companies is steadily making rounds in the Asian market for its one-stop home building solutions.
The Burbank Group is a second-generation family company from Melbourne that understands the key roles of diversification and innovation in the market. With over years 30 of history, the Burbank umbrella encompasses land development, finance and utility services to supplement its home construction business, securing it as a leader among its competitors.
“Burbank is one of the few home builders across eastern Australia that can build detached homes, townhouses and apartments,” says Jarrod Sanfilippo, managing director. “We get a visibility on different market conditions, different market requirements and are able to take those learnings to share across the country.”
Burbank marks 15 to 20 per cent of its clientele from other nationalities. International clients are predominantly from China but Burbank is also increasingly attracting more clients from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and India.
The company has made a mark in Asian second home owners because it knows how to take in cultural values and lifestyle to the design requirements set by the client.
“We protect their investments,” says Kelvin Chang, sales manager for Burbank Projects. “We look after their property and map out the whole journey to ensure that they invest correctly and rightfully for them.”
Burbank is set to launch a wider set of projects this year, including an urban renewal development in Melbourne’s west that includes apartments across two towers, plus retail, car parking and council accommodation – a high density project that will surely attract prospective home buyers and investors.
The company is also open to collaborating with partners that share its client-centric approach and are willing to grow and cultivate a long-term relationship with Burbank.
