Developer Duo’s Success

What do you get when you pair an architect with a creative who was brought up by a property wheeler and dealer? In the case of architect Thomas Ward and real estate expert Jessica Driver, you have a recipe for property development success.
The couple met at university – he was studying engineering, which he later dropped in favour of architecture, and she was studying fine arts.
At just 24 years old, both still completing study in Auckland, they decided to purchase their first investment property. It was 2010 and Driver’s dad, who had retired young through property investment, was an excellent advertisement for getting into the market.
