Amara Living is a boutique property developer built on decades of experience and a desire to create beautifully designed, functional, high-quality homes.
Established in Sydney in 1979, and founded by Robert Yazbek, our experience ranges from private residential homes and stunning large-scale multi-unit developments, to commercial and industrial buildings.
We truly believe beautifully designed homes make the people who live in them happier, and we promise a seamless experience and an ongoing commitment to each project, serviced by our property and building management service team.
Our team project manages and build innovative spaces and astute investments for a range of buyers.
Robert’s 42 years in the construction industry can be characterised by clear methodology and strong work ethic, with a focus on technically demanding and performance focused projects.
He commenced his building career in 1974, working with his father who was also a property developer and builder. Robert formed his own construction company in 1979, and has constructed numerous commercial, industrial and residential developments of the highest calibre.
Robert was the recipient of the ‘Top Homes Award Housing Industry Association’ for excellence every year from 1993 to 1997. In 1998 he received the H.I.A and Master Builders’ Association ‘House of the Year’ award.
From 1999 to 2016 Yazbek constructed high-rise residential developments. Rebranding to Amara Living has given him the opportunity to work independently, while continuing to apply his many years of knowledge and expertise proven in the significant architectural, property development and construction projects he has successfully completed to date.
