Helm Properties Website

Local, reliable, proven

HELM was established locally in 2010 with the prime focus of servicing Sydney’s luxury owner occupier market. The Lower North Shore is HELM’s ‘sweet spot’ and its five developments in this region have elevated architectural standards and surrounding property values.

HELM has been able to maintain high standards because it embraces a holistic approach and uses in-house teams of development, design and construction managers along with a dedicated construction team. This allows HELM to control every aspect of its projects.

HELM has won over 30 National & State Awards which is 3 times the number of awards of any other Medium Density Developer in Australia over the past 10 years.

A collaborative approach

So special is the Myahgah project that HELM has enlisted three extraordinary architectural firms to bolster its in-house design team and act as a gateway for new ideas and perspectives.

Our exterior and interior design partners are:

PCA Architects, Brick Architects and Corben Architects. PCA and Brick have been designing beautiful buildings along the Eastern seaboard of Australia for more than 30 years, while Corben has a portfolio of some 250 high-end projects on the Lower North Shore.


Helm Pty Ltd iCIRT Star Rating

"HELM is one of this State’s quality developers."

David Chandler OAM,
NSW Building Commissioner

HELM’s commitment to innovative architecture, quality materials, proven construction methodology, focus on recurrent costs and meticulous attention to detail has been generously recognised by Government bodies, such as iCIRT (Independent Construction Industry Rating Tool).

HELM is part of a select group which has received one of the highest iCIRT evaluations to date – 4.5 stars * out of five stars -- with the NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler OAM declaring: “HELM is one of this State’s quality developers.”

*As HELM does not develop in other States and specialises in Medium Density Development, the rating criteria precludes HELM from achieving 5 stars.

What our purchasers say about HELM

“Buying off-the-plan took a leap of faith for us, but it was a decision we do not regret for one moment. In fact, the design of the building and the quality of the finishes, fixtures and fittings exceeds our expectations. Not only did HELM build a first class apartment building but they have created a huge sense of community amongst the residents. They remained on site for several months after settlement to help residents move in and iron out any of the inevitable teething problems with a new building.”

“Ann and I lived happily in a three-storey house for 25 years, but my torn meniscus meant I couldn’t handle all the steps without discomfort. We knew it was time to move on, so we sought out a single-level apartment with good north-east views in a convenient location with surrounding easy walking. Dolls Point was ideal.

Being a structural engineer, I knew of HELM, and friends who were living in a couple of its earlier developments provided us with rave reviews so we had no concerns about buying off-the-plan. From the start of construction I kept a close eye on progress and was extremely impressed. The HELM builders allowed me to bring my young structural engineers to the site and learn how HELM goes about its work.

Our confidence in HELM has been vindicated. Our apartment is light, airy and well designed, allowing us to maintain an outdoors-indoors lifestyle. We take advantage of the spacious deck as much as possible, but even when the weather is bad we have the space to host dinner parties for large groups in complete comfort as well as having friends stay over. ”

“The first thing we are pleased about is quality and excellent finish. It can happen that friends will give ‘warning advice’ during the wait from sighting plans to completion. We were very lucky when personal friends and relatives at different times assured us they knew of HELM and we were in good hands. This was absolutely correct. We are thrilled with the design of our chosen new home, the use of space and flow for everyday living. During our wait for completion HELM answered all our queries, gave us information and even changed one wall for the benefit of space and usage. We are quite delighted with our choice.”

“Knowing how prized each HELM development is, we regard ourselves as being the ‘lucky last’ to be able to buy into Phi. We had looked around for a large, light-filled apartment for at least three months and before committing to Phi we spoke to several residents from previous HELM buildings. Their ringing endorsements of HELM’s quality and after-sales service galvanised our decision.

We also found it telling that all the off-plan projects we viewed boasted that theirs would be up to the standard of HELM. So, we reasoned, if HELM had become the benchmark for quality why then wouldn’t we purchase a genuine HELM product? ”

“The word that best describes HELM to me is integrity. Everything they do pre-and-post sale is customer-focussed and professional. Unlike many developers who ‘go missing’ once settlement occurs HELM maintains a liaison person on site who is hands-on to ensure things go smoothly. HELM staggered the moving-in times among the new residents and kept a parking space free for a removalist van so there was no confusion or delays. The Muse hand-over package contained all warranties and relevant contact details, and we received instruction on how to operate our new appliances.”

“When you deal with HELM you get this sense of family which is very reassuring. Quality is of paramount importance to them, and they are always willing to oblige. Because downsizing into an apartment is such an important decision we were naturally apprehensive, but HELM kept us fully informed every step of the way.”
