Our Team

Young enough to stay fresh, yet experienced enough to know and benefit from our strengths, the Solution Street team have been working together for over 6 years and, led by Managing Director Gary Gordon, we are providing much needed affordable housing to the Auckland market.

Gary founded Legacy Property, which is the parent company of Solution Street, back in 2003. After years of developing apartments, terraced homes and stand alone properties throughout Auckland and Christchurch, he saw a need for affordable homes in the Auckland market and knew he could help.

Solution Street are passionate in what we do and have partnered with businesses that have the same ‘can do’ attitude and the same level of motivation to help more Kiwi’s own their own warm, healthy homes.
