Family owned and operated

With a vision of quality, luxury homes and a dream to create a lasting legacy for his family, Fraser Sanderson founded the Sanderson Group in 1987. A family-led business whose core principle is ‘family helping families’ Sanderson Group is the benchmark of the retirement sector.

A maverick in the field, Fraser Sanderson was one of the first facilitators of the niche market for luxurious, quality, retirement homes and apartments which did not compromise on lifestyle or excellence but which manifested his own exceptionally, high standards. The Sanderson Group pioneered the way for the construction of landmark retirement apartments, which came under heavy criticism at the time as a concept that would never appeal to the New Zealand market. Now facilities such as these are commonplace as other firms seek to emulate his success.

Sanderson Group has continually proven their worth over the years, creating not only, retirement villages but like-minded communities with residents able to relish the lifestyle their own hard work has afforded them. With no expense spared, every surface, feature and detail of Sanderson Group villages are finished to the highest degree, in order to meet Fraser’s expectations.

In recognising and respecting the intelligence, independence and sociability of their residents, the Sanderson Group succeeded in changing the misconceptions of the retirement sector to create large-scale, desirable, destination villages which continue to change lives to this day. The company operates several key establishments including; Omokoroa Country Estate, Bethlehem Shores and Bethlehem Country Club, with the crowning glory of all, the Queenstown Country Club, currently under construction.

True to his vision, the Sanderson Group is comprised of several members of the Sanderson family, Fraser’s children and in-laws, who all share his passion for a life’s work, dedicated to family.
