Our Story

Wisdom Homes is a multi-award winning homebuilder, committed to the pursuit of a higher standard of living for Australian families.

Wisdom Properties Group was founded in 1999 with a passion for home design and sophisticated living, proudly building thousands of new homes for families across New South Wales. Each home is built with the company’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. This passion remains integral to Wisdom’s purpose today - to enrich the lives of our customers by making luxury and value accessible through beautiful homes, pools & landscaping.

Ownership by Sumitomo Forestry Group brings assurance of Wisdom Homes' longevity, plus high standards of governance, professionalism and sustainability.
