Media release from Mike Pero Real Estate

Mike Pero Reaching New Heights

The Mike Pero Group has financed one of its greatest home purchases in its over twenty year history – The Mike Pero Flying House (MPFH) balloon.

To celebrate, this morning at 8:20am, the MPFH completed its maiden flight to the thrills of schoolchildren, students and commuters travelling to work. Taking off from Bayswater Marina, the ‘house’ floated across the Auckland skyline, taking in views of the harbour before it softly landed almost 2 hours later at Te Atatu.

The MPFH is almost 7 storeys high, has two cats on its roof and carries the famous Pero logo and red colouring. Constructed at Cameron Balloons in Bristol, England, its unique shape offers a surreal sight when seen from the air or ground.

Mike Pero, founder of the Mike Pero Group, said: “Our flying house was a dream that became a reality and reflects the aspirations of the tens of thousands of people we have helped over the years with their hopes of buying and financing their homes.”

There have been some concerns by prospective homebuyers around the increase in real estate costs especially the main cities and the availability to funds on lower deposits. Between Mike Pero Mortgages and Mike Pero Real Estate the two companies can take home ownership from ‘pie in the sky’ to reality for more people than any other brand in New Zealand, Mike Pero said.

Background Information:

The Mike Pero Group began with Mike Pero Mortgages in 1991 which is one of New Zealand's most successful finance broking companies. With over 60 Mortgage and Insurance Advisers and support staff, the company is well recognised as the “most trusted and known Mortgage Broking firm in New Zealand” (Colmar Brunton Research 2012).
