Explore your future through an Open Day

Real Living hosts regular Open Days to offer potential residents the opportunity to explore the facilities and amenities of our four villages.

Currently, Remuera Gardens is hosting two Open Days on May 16th and May 17th, from 11am to 2pm. The village’s Sales Manager, Lyn Ellis, is in charge of organising these events, which include guided tours of the townhouses, independent apartments and serviced apartments.

Lyn knows that it can feel daunting to start looking at retirement villages, with many unknowns lying ahead. But visiting the village is the best way to alleviate any concerns and gain firsthand insight into the vibrant community, exceptional services, and comfortable living options available at Remuera Gardens.

Lyn’s perspective encapsulates this sentiment: “Think of retirement living as a new chapter in your life – new people, new places. You're not at the end of something; you're at the beginning of something else."

Remuera Gardens' living options include townhouses, one and two apartments and serviced apartments.

Visiting Remuera Gardens during an Open Day also involves walking around the communal areas such as the Lounge, dining facilities, the swimming pool, the professional cinema and the library. Naturally, many visitors are captivated by the village's enchanting gardens, with lush greenery, colourful flowers and well-manicured lawns. 

Participating in an Open Day also allows you to direct any inquiries you may have to Lyn, our Sales Manager. Additionally, it may offer an opportunity to interact with our residents and confirm whether the village resonates with your sense of belonging.

The Sales Managers work closely with the Village Managers. Here, Lyn is pictured with Epsom Village’s Manager, Lillian Fletcher, after an Open Day.

Pakuranga Park also hosts regular Open Days to showcase its living options to potential residents, including open plan villas, one and two bedroom apartments and the latest addition to the village: a magnificent four-story building of luxury apartments that take retirement living to a new level.

The Head of the Sales Team at Pakuranga Park is Sylvie Borrett, with more than eleven years of experience in Real Estate sales. For Sylvie, the most important message to convey to our visitors is that there’s absolutely no pressure to make a purchase during their Open Day visit.

Sylvie wishes to extend this message to all those interested: "I'm here to guide you through the available options and offer you a glimpse of the everyday joys that make life here so wonderful."

Sylvie Borrett and Fiona Roberts are part of the friendly Sales Team who guide visitors through the properties available at Pakuranga Park.

During a typical Open Day at Real Living, guests can enjoy food and beverage options for morning or afternoon tea, providing them with the chance to sample the offerings from our kitchen. On March, Pakuranga Park hosted a very unique event inviting visitors to try two of the most popular sports at the village, bowls and croquet. Visitors had the opportunity to participate in these activities and at the same time mingle with the residents, providing a relaxed opportunity to immerse themselves in the village atmosphere.

March's event was a success, with residents and visitors engaging with one another, sharing experiences, and having lots of fun.

If, after reading all this, you're still uncertain about attending an Open Day, keep in mind that you can also contact the Sales Managers at any time to schedule a personal visit outside of the designated Open Days.

Julia has been a teacher, playwright, performer, poet, and is the mastermind behind the word game SQUABBLES. Has retirement slowed them down?
