The 'How To' of Buying Residential Land and Building in Western Australia

Darren Meakins, Land HQ wa Founder 

Darren Meakins has been involved in the WA real estate industry for over 30 years. His passion for educating clients and helping them make the best decisions has been the inspiration for establishing Land HQ wa.


Introducing Land HQ wa

Land is the basis of all construction projects, so it makes sense to get it right. We bring you quality residential land, by some of the best developers in Perth. Given our background in construction, land sales and land subdivision, we are well-placed to service the building sector, and guide you as a potential buyer, with the correct information when purchasing. 

The Four Pillars of Purchasing

Having taken so many buyers through the journey, Land HQ wa has refined a system to help buyers understand their choices; we call this the Four Pillars of Purchasing:

  1. The ‘How to’ of Purchasing
  2. The ‘How to’ of Land
  3. The ‘How to’ of Home Design
  4. The ‘How to’ of Siteworks

Each of these pillars has been carefully refined over decades of experience, and by applying the framework to everyday sales efforts, we guide the buyer through the process of purchasing land in an efficient and reliable way.

Darren is a great guide and lifts the lid on the mysteries of buying property. Integrity, honesty and commitment are words bandied around too much. However, these words apply to Darren.

Rob Cole

Director - Circa Developments

I’ve worked with Darren whilst I was Director of Developments with one of Perth’s large land developers where he was employed as the sales representative. In addition to this I subsequently worked as a new homes consultant and have sold house and land packages in conjunction with Darren. From both perspectives I’ve found Darren to be professional and diligent in all his dealings and would highly recommend him.

Expertise, Advice & Knowledge

Having gone through the building process on multiple occasions, I have been fortunate to encounter Darren Meakins along the way. Darren has been able to assist me in sourcing suitable land, once for an investment property and on the other occasion for a specific lot to build our family home. His familiarity with the building industry as a whole, as well as his expertise, advice and property market knowledge have played a key role in my decision to build. I would thoroughly recommend Darren to anyone, whether you are a first home buyer, an experienced second home buyer or an investor, and utilise his many years of experience and advice.
