About Us

Leading the way in luxury and innovation

As leading specialists in high-rise apartment construction, Layman Property Group was established 17 years ago in Hebei Province, China. Before deciding to expand our operations to Australia, our business had already completed more than $950 million in building projects, including substantial suburb reconstructions and large-scale holiday accommodation developments..


In 2009 we established our office in Melbourne, teaming up with the finest award-winning architects to create luxurious apartment accommodation throughout Melbourne’s metropolitan area. Currently, we are constructing $50 million in new, premium residential projects.


In this arm of the business, our prime focus is to create architecturally elegant living spaces in prime locations convenient to first-class amenities, universities and excellent public transport. The key to our success is our ability to work closely with our clients both in Australia and Asia to deliver a superior product that satisfies their desire for high-quality delivered in a timely fashion.


Our experience is not only restricted to luxury apartments. Boutique projects including substantial single residences and luxurious holiday townhouses have provided our team with a depth of knowledge unmatched by others in our industry.


Determined to provide our valued clients with the very best products and an easy ‘one-stop’ service throughout the property buying process, we established Layman Real Estate and mortgage brokerage.


This seamless extension to our range of client services highlights our specialist off-the-plan marketing and sales skills, as recently demonstrated in the successful sale of the Daws and Augusta projects. Our clients also benefit from exclusive access to the most competitive banking and finance options in the marketplace, tailored to suit their needs.


While our staff utilise their many significant local and international relationships forged over 17 years of outstanding results in real estate, our business is also proud of its rich history.


We are the owners of Lian Zhou Gong Jiu, a very famous Baijiu (Chinese wine) made in Hebei. Boasting a long history dating all the way back to the Han Dynasty, this strong and fragrant spirit is highly sought-after in Chinese food and wine culture. The quality of distillation and its unique taste and aroma is what makes our brand synonymous with the very finest Baijiu in the world.
