The corner walls of the bedroom of my flat got damaged in a month by leakage of water from the bathroom. At that time I called Mr Amit Sofat who was responsible for providing me a good infrastructure, but he severely misbehaved with me and told me that he will not meet me. Amit sofat ruined my house, he promised alot but all were fake. Day by day the condition of my wall is worsening. I demand immediate compensation from him along with repairing of the walls.

I'm disabled and a mental health sufferer and This company engie/keepmoat was hired by Tower Hamlets Homes who is my social housing landlord to replace all the glass in the windows of the flat not the frames just to change the glass after almost 1 year of me complaining to them that not only have they left without finishing the work leaving my flat defenceless against the cold and wind and the bathroom window was not put back properly it's supposed to be closed but you can clearly see the sky from the gap at the top because a Cowboy Comany has done the work so you have to now put the heating on 24h just to be at a healthy and safe temperature because they removed some of the rubber internal draft blockers so they could paint the frames and did not return to put them back once the frames dried they only put them back on some of the frames leaving others defenceless against the cold weather and they also removed the draft brushes that go around the frame so they could paint but only put some back leaving the rest of them defenceless! They said they would return to replace the rest of the Draft Rubbers and the Draft brushes but they NEVER returned! And ever since then I've been blatantly lied to by staff and management that this would be resolved but almost a year has gone and nothing! Even though they've sent someone to inspect who then says that it will be put right but nearly a year and NOTHING! And on top of all that a person who works for Engie / Keepmoat called Nadeem, told me to ' Go fu¥k myself ' All I said to him was ' Why are you lying and wasting my time '! I called his senior to complain a Mr Steve Freame, who told me that his staff member Nadeem admitted to him that he told me to ' Go fu¥k myself ' yet they wouldn't apologise until I literally had to beg and demand for the abusive treatment I've received from Engie / keepmoat Mr Steve Freame literally made me ask him over and over again because he wouldn't reply "isn't anyone going to apologise for the abusive treatment I've received from Engie / keepmoat?" He then said "it will be in the post!" I'm here on the fone and you can't say sorry on behalf of your company! I've never seen or heard or felt treatment by a company like this its disgusting! This company is made up of nothing but PURE COWBOY BUILDER'S! ! ! Tip-1 = Beware of this outfit! ! ! Or you will regret it no matter how cheap the contract is you will pay for it in the end but probably double! BEWARE = Engie formerly known as keepmoat.

From the first day we walked into the SJD display home and met our consultant Kevin, to receiving our keys from site supervisor Kim, SJD were incredibly flexible, supporting, thoughtful and professional throughout our whole design to build process. As we already had land and an idea for our build, the process for us was more about getting the house plans perfect for our 4 acre block. We were able to bounce ideas off Kevin who clearly had a lot of experience in design and layouts for houses and completely understood our brief. The design stage took close to 12 months but that was mainly for the sake of double checking every fine detail and adding things within our budget. SJD had a great choice of standard inclusions, making us feel like it wasn't necessary to spend up big on upgrades. We however did upgrade a few things and were pleasantly surprised with how cost efficient these all were. Onto to build stage, with some hiccups caused by weather and adding a nice challenge on a sloping block. After a 9 week weather delay the site cut was rectified and just like that we were out of the ground. Kim kept us in the loop with all the happenings in the early stages of the build which was great. It was incredibly impressive to see how fast and the level of finish the trades had. Along the way Kim was more than happy for my wife and I to not only meet with him on site to discuss issues or concerns but also with trades to make sure we were all on the same page. This was incredibly beneficial to us with the tiling layout for our ensuite and bathroom and also the feature cultured stone pillar on our facade. The outcome of both of these were top class and we are so happy we had the opportunity to meet the trades to discuss all the options and our vision. Over all the experience has been great, we always felt that SJD truly understood how much this house meant to us especially being our first home. Both Kevin and Kim went above and beyond across the entire process. Now we're settling in we are incredibly happy with the finished product.

We first met Rachel in January 2019 armed with a sketch and a dream of what our new house would look like. Rachel spend many hours turning that sketch into a fantastic house plan. When construction started, our building supervisor Brad Little was all over it. He always kept in contact updating us of the progress and ensuring that the built met our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for Brad, he was very patient and understanding and we loved the fact that he was very particular about maintaining a high standard finish. Both Rachel and Brad are a credit to SJD Homes and the building industry. Everyone we dealt with at SJD Homes from Rachel, Brad, Leah and the ladies in the office were polite, engaging and highly professional. If you want a high quality home then look no further than SJD Homes.

Our construction started in April 2017. Due to a design flaw which was blamed on us construction was stopped at our request and new plans drawn up at our expense and approved. Approval given in July 2017, we didn’t get the keys until August 2018 (26 week build expected). Our windows at the front and rear are off centre - we didn’t change them, just how they were drawn up. Again our fault for not noticing. Floor tiles were badly scratched, some replaced. Very poor quality tile but surely they should have been protected until handover. Alfresco doors should have been cavity sliders as per design....this issue caused a stop work until agreement was reached. The build took that long our neighbours thought we’d changed builders. Trades were rarely there. When they were there supervision was rare. We got very few weekly updates...mostly it was us chasing them on progress. Understandable given there was often very little to tell us. I would not recommend Stroud if you are doing a knock down rebuild in an established area. Different if you’re in a new estate area where trades are always around. I would also not recommend changing their designs. While our changes were accepted without hesitation it became clear that those changes were to become the core of our problems. We were told the plan was structurally sound yet had to omit a sliding door due to structural concerns. We later discovered that the problem was that the slider had gone in the wrong way. I now have a door I didn’t want and an alarm pad and switches on a wall we didn’t want. Not a huge issue but a constant reminder of our dilemmas. We also have a steel beam crossing our ceiling which had to be boxed in, so is now noticeable rather than being enclosed in the gap between the two floors. This is not how the house design is shown and we never really got an answer as to why that’s how it ended up. Yes, the steel beam is essential for the design but why isn’t it noticeable in the display home? Again, just another reminder of our dramas. We did receive very good assistance from head office when trying to resolve issues and move along our build. We met Ben at handover....what a shame he wasn’t our site supervisor....I think we would have had a very different experience. We also love the design of our Kirra home. What started out with such wonderful promise became a period of great stress for both parties. Everyone I’m sure was very glad to see those keys finally handed over. We eventually had the last of our maintenance issues resolved in August 2019. The anger and disappointments have abated with both sides having come out tired but wiser.

From the very moment we walked into the display home at Springfield and spoke to Jason - we knew without an iota of doubt that we were in good hands and our choice to build with Stroud Home Brisbane West has been one without regret. Being our first home build, we were nervous and naive about the whole build process especially when you hear stories of friends who have gone through this process with other builders. But when we outlined our expectation and time line to Jason he was able to come to the table with a package that suited our budget and needs. Our house was completed in record time from early August to December 2019 to ensure we celebrated Christmas in our own home- That was one of our check lists. The choice of materials used was of high quality and premium selections that were classified as extras by other builders were treated as standard by the Stroud Team at no extra cost. The weekly calls and emails to provide project updates was welcomed and made us feel part of the whole build process. It also ensured where design outcomes were not in line with our expectation was quickly rectified without delay and at no cost. After we moved in and over the Christmas holidays, we had issues with the landscape work which technically was not part of the build but once again the staff at Stroud where all over this. They owned it and coordinated with the relevant people to address the very few post construction issues that came up. When it comes to the cost for the build, they were true to their word. Their quote is "Black and White". There was no additional cost to what was contracted even though we made some variations to the build plan along the way. The team at Stroud- Brisbane West were very understanding and treated our build as individual and unique and not just a number which is very rare in this day and age. I thank the team at Stroud- Brisbane West to mention in particular; Jason the franchise owner, Josh who help with the estimates, Michael & Luke the project managers, and Karren the accounts officer- you are such a lovely bunch. Thank you for giving me a beautiful house to call HOME. Keep up with the good work

101 Residential are Perth039s Leading Two Storey Home Builders offering a wide selection of home designs at an affordable price

Recent Reviews

This build - in a Heritage Area, in a northerly Council, Perth WA was long, complicated and I'd never recommend to anyone - unless they get help from an accomplished builder like 101 Residential. They came up with the best plan for our block (out of 6 others) that was on budget with the additions we expected. Other builders were simply on a 'selling mission' and didn't listen to our basic remit, others simply didn't have a clue where to start with getting Shire Approval, etc. 101 helped get the plans approved in spite of the heavy resistance and ineptitude from the Council. Our build process was smooth and the finished product is professional and met our expectation. We're now about to move in - and we are really happy with our lovely house that already feels like home and we can't wait to really move in and live there. We don't believe we'd have got a better deal for a brick and concrete house, for the quality, hassle, location (on lane way), size, etc. from another Perth builder. Throughout the build 101 staff were helpful and positive which helped keep the whole thing on track and moving forward. We'd definitely recommend 101 Residential and we'd definitely go to them first if there was ever a 'next time' - although we'd never do something like this again if we ever knew the incompetence of the Council we had to deal with.

After a 5 year battle it seems that just a 1 positive phone call could resolve some clarity and hopefully change my mind in 101 Hopefully 101 and this build has made a turn for the good and my house will be my home. I will endeavour to update this and see how it goes.

I have been dealing with [name removed] from New Choice for a few months. At first I was told never to trust a sales person and I thought [name removed] was different. [name removed] was made very clear of my situation and on a number of occasions I reconfirmed with [name removed] that I would not be liable for any other fee’s except loosing the deposit if I had finance difficulties as I had heard a number of stories before. Now New Choice are trying to make me pay them another $2000 on top of the $1500 deposit I paid them. Not only that the original plan was very basic with a kitchen with only 2 cupboards and draws and then wanted me to pay extra to add in more cabinets etc. New choice are just trying to scam their customers for as much money as they can get. I would not recommend them to anyone. They have made my first home experience a nightmare.

I would recommend NCH to build your new home, i would certainly use NCH again from the initial decision to use them (did my homework and had quotes from min 6 other builders) they were fantastic, the cost was competitive and so was the design of the plans that were spot on. They worked in conjunction with the lender, council and the strata companies to ensure everything went smoothly. The specs were high and the build quality as i would expect from a competent builder. All the staff right from the planners, pre start, liaison managers and site supervisor were very helpful and accommodating with no issues that couldn't be sorted out. Overall i am extremely happy with the outcome of the build. Thank you.

This journey was started more than a year ago when the sales rep from Go Homes was highly motivated to get the customers. First couple of months drawing the sketches was all part of fun. Being an engineer, I have drawn the sketch to scale so that Go Homes draftee can draw it with an ease. There were errors and omissions most of the time on the drawings which I highlight again for them to consider in revised plan. When the plan was not even drawn there was a push to sign the prelim-contract always. There were some inclusions that were mentioned early during the design process but were not included in the prelim contract so I was hesitant to sign the prelim contract. The Site works were estimated to be $25k at prelim stage. Discussing it further, I have found out all the obligations were put back on to owners/us such that they will complete the easy part and other not that easy part such as removal of existing fence was not included in price. Anyhow, cut long story to short, I had to do some of the site works done myself so that they can commence the works. I have asked them to price me fixed price on site works cost, after feasibility they have increased the site works cost to almost double. During this stage, there were several times (more than 50% of times as an average), the emails and clarifications sent to them were ignored. Sales rep until now was helpful to keep the file moving forward. Prelim contract/inclusions was signed with anticipating dates of completion within 24 to 26 weeks (March 2020). I had to write several emails every week to ask them to correct the drawings and the contract inclusions that I have been priced for but ignored in the contract. It was a challenging task to get them into the contract. The file was getting tossed between different people and departments so I had to show them evidence when the inclusions were agreed with the sales rep and where the records were kept. There was always push to sign the contract. However, drawings were never drawn correctly. The risk in this was that team building the house will work from the drawings and if the drawings are not correct it is like hood of missing the details/works done correctly at site. It was a frustrating experience so far on getting this paperwork ready. When they have drawn the drawings (to 80% correctness) and contracts this time I have signed it to keep the ball rolling. Here it comes then, once I have signed the contract I have been sent an addendum to exclude the timelines from the contract i.e. now the completion time of 24 to 26 weeks has been excluded and they have to finish the Works within 300days of commencement of works. It was Covid time now. It was almost 10 months to get the drawings and contract get to this point. I did not want to delay it further as I have wasted 10 months already, I could not afford to spend another few months with a new builder so I have signed this addendum. I have signed the contract prior to Christmas last year, around 22nd December. Apparently, Go Homes have signed 1700 houses in a month when govt was giving building grants to people. They were falling behind on schedule. Perhaps, committed to more works than they could deliver. These numbers were given by their staff members. The pre-start has now pushed out by 6 weeks from contract signed. I have prestart in first week of February where we have discussed the electrical plans and some inclusions which they have mentioned during this process that they can include in pre-start. I was certain that I need minimum changes now as any small changes can delay the works for weeks. Regardless of our plan, I believe their intention is to delay the commencement of works as much as they can, Afterall they have signed so many houses to deliver and due to limited labour supply (brick layers) they wont be able to deliver all in one year. Again, I have marked-up the drawings for them to correct in their final drawings. It was so minimal changes, these errors were picked as they were not aligned with contract inclusions. They have taken 3 iterations this time to just add couple of things in the drawing and took more than 6 weeks to fix them. Again, the intention is to push out/delay the work so that they can distribute the work over a long duration. During this stage, their contract rep was not replying to emails and giving any anticipated date on the commencement of works. The Council has provided the building permit in February. The Letter from the bank has also been updated and provided third time to them. Now, the question is when the Works will be commenced? No answer from Go Homes, It is June now three months later we have received the permits and more than 12 months of this journey. They still not giving any time when the work will be commenced. They are not sure when they can deliver the Works and the frustrating thing is they don’t even know when they can deliver. Looking at the markets, there are several other contractors who are also facing labour shortage issues but organizing their work as per norms. We have houses getting built next door from Ideal Homes, RedInk and other private contractors who have finished the works by almost 70% even they have signed the contract after the date I have signed with Go Homes. I would advise anyone reading this feedback to please google the company’s which are owned by BGC group like Go Homes and make their call wisely. There are may companies under BGC group that may share same resources and material supplier, If Go Homes are having these issues there is likelihood the other contractor under BGC umbrella having the similar issues. I have tried to cut down this story to 1/10th of the experience I had and still having with them. I would give them the following scores based on the experience I have with them so far, hopefully it improves during the construction. Design/Planning: 1 out 5. Could not draw the drawings from the marked-up sketch in more than 10 attempts. Transparency: 0 out to 5. They have only responded to may be 20% of the emails and concerns. It was a painful journey with them. Professionalism: 1 out of 5. I have received many emails with inappropriate comments from their staff, evidence can be provided. I had to escalate the issues twice with the other teams manager. I have drawn the complete sketch and they have put their Patent to it. Planning: 0 out of 5. My whole comments shows how poor they were in planning. 6 months after signing the contract still not giving any commencement dates. I doubt they can actually deliver the job. I have met some of the labours worked with them in past and now left and working with other contractors. Average score: 1 out of 5. Never using them in future.

Being a first home buyer, you tend to be naive to a few things as it's the first time you are presented with them. Throughout the building process, be it a small change or normal BAU, Nostra Homes communicated this with professionalism and perfection. I cannot fault the experience and their customer service. They always kept me well informed on what was happening and regular updates were sent. As I am interstate, this was paramount. One of the best out there and happy to recommend them without hesitation.

We hear so many bad stories from others with other builders, but not in our case. We are very happy we chose Ross North. We did a great deal of research and put a lot of effort into our house design, with that in mind we had no hidden surprises and cost was spot on, no complaints. We have a little bit to finish off around the house however we have attached a photo to show how well the house came up. Thanks to all the Ross North people....would we use you again...Absolutely.

We found building for the first time a little stressful but Ross North, and everyone we worked with there, were absolutely fantastic. The most difficult thing we found was making all the decisions required to design and finish our home, but Ross North were incredibly supportive through the process. They all new when to allow us time and space to think things through, and when to guide us in what was almost always the right direction to go. Having such a range of professionals available to us was just what we needed to smooth our path. We have had a number of challenges in getting this project done, but Ross North did not add to them, they solved them for us. Clearly they are not the cheapest builder in the market, but the old addage applies, you get what you pay for, and we are very happy with what we have got. Thank you Ross north

After living in our house for slightly over four (4) years a number of structural issues arose surrounding the driveway sinking and leaks around the house. Asked for assistance, but was always told it was not covered by the six (6) year warranty. However, they very much like to give me a quote for fixing it at my own expense. Avoid like the plague. PS. I know Blueprint will come back and make a token response to my complaint and do nothing. This appears to be how businesses work nowadays.

I first heard about Blueprint from one of my clients who I know to be very particular and for them to be impressed by a building company I had to see it for myself. From start to finish the customer service was amazing, we always had someone to ask any questions and any issues were addressed immediately. Blueprint was also very flexible in what we could leave to do ourselves to save costs. The end result is an amazing rural home with extremely good value for money and we had no cost surprises along the way, we actually got some money back in the end. I am extremely happy with my new home and would gladly use Blueprint again.

Our building supervisor was David Wawrowski and couldn't ask for a better building supervisor! He ensured all the things were well taken care of. He even put a down light in WIP in good faith for us as we forgot (it's our first house so don't judge :P). Catering to our custom requirements NHS Home build gave us the peace of mind a first home buyer needs. Valissa ensured we were informed during all the stages of construction and when other trades were booked in. After our handover NHS team ensured we had a smooth transition and any issues occurring were handled quickly!

I had a very pleasurable time building with Eden brae as living 2.5 hours away from site the site supervisor was always keeping me updated and informed on where my house was up to and would meet me on site at the drop of a hat to clear up any questions or concerns. Very smooth build and very thoroughly supervised. Very happy with the way it has turned out.

We have settlement of our new Eden Brae Home in the morning, and we are just under a month ahead of scheduled completion which is just brilliant! Both our Customer Service Consultant (Jess) and Site Supervisor (Chris) have been fantastic during each step, both assisting us with our many requests and queries in good time and with personal professionalism. We have seen Eden Brae homes on display in the past and loved the finer details, and our home has been completed in the same manor with any minor finishes requiring attention rectified swiftly. We would like to suggest to Eden Brae Homes in their process, that getting the house keys at head office in Baulkham Hills is a long distance for us especially when there's an office in the same new estate we're moving into. This would have been a 5 hour turnaround for us if we didn't request our keys to be ready on site which we have been able to arrange. To have the keys offered to us on site would have been a nice final touch. Apart from this, we would highly recommend Eden Brae Homes to anyone. We certainly aren't experienced in building a house, yet Eden Brae Homes made the journey at each step so easy - we wouldn't hesitate in building with them again in the future given the opportunity.

Adenbrook Homes Coffs Harbour was highly recommended to me, after meeting Nikki in the display home and having a chat with her I decided to go ahead. The entire process was smooth and straight forward. The team was more than happy to accomadate any changes I needed to make to the plan, and also undoing some things I changed my mind about. The cost was spot on from day one and the build was finished on time. After moving in, there was a couple of minor things that needed touching up, once this was addressed with adenbrook homes, the contractors were in contact with me the very next day to resolve. Overall I'm very impressed with everything, the communication, efficiency, cost, and the end result of my home.

I have now been dealing with Adenbrook for the past one year and right from the time I purchased the land and finished construction up until my maintenance Inspection , their service has been outstanding. The experience is simple, you have a problem, they listen and action. No build goes through without hiccups! difference is, when a builder walks alongside you with your problems. Adenbrook definitely does that! :)

I cannot fault our agent Adam Strauch. He was there for us in every step of the way - he was patient, understanding, he was extremely helpful and he was very quick to answer any and all questions we had. Whenever we had a problem, his answer is always “leave it to me, I’ll take care of it” and it would be fixed. We just felt we were in great hands. We could contact him at any time and he would reply, what he always say is he’s like a 7/11, you can reach him 24/7. With the actual build of our house, we went to visit our house at least 3 times a week and there was a point where 3 weeks would pass and nothing was happening. There’s another house in another street also under Affordable Living and they were really behind from us, we were already on our shower screens and mirrors and they had just reached lock up and yet we finished at the same time. That’s the only thing we had problems with, we feel that they could have finished our house maybe a month or so sooner if there wasn’t periods of time where nothing was happening.

My husband and i paid a deposit for a house and land package in May 2018 and we were given our keys last week, we were ecstatic because this is exactly what Warren promised us at the Edmondson park office. We were told by so many people that building will be the worst experience of our lives but in fact it was fun and smooth sailing thanks to Firstyle homes. Everyone has been so helpful from the start to the end, we couldnt be more impressed with the customer service received. We were also told by so many people that when building a home, the site supervisor would change throughout the build. Well again people were wrong, Dane Elliot was appointed our site supervisor, and he was also the man who did our handover. Dane was fanatstic at his job, he stayed in contact with us all the time about the progress of the home, he would even send us images when required, he made us feel as if this house was just as important to him as it was us. He answered all of our questions and he would rectify any concerns we had. Very impressed with his work. Adriana Daniel was also very impressive, she was so helpful with all of our insane questions, like 'why have i received a water bill and im not living in my house', she would get on to it promptly and in no time id receive an email back stating why. She was also fantastic in providing me any documents my bank requested, and answered any other question we had regarding the build. Both my husband and i are very grateful to Firstyle Homes for giving us our beautiful home and for making the building process an amazing, simple one.

Les was a wonderful sales consultant, during the beginning stages of deciding whether or not to go ahead with the quote, Les made it his life's mission to let us know what to expect going forward if we were to sign, it really lifted the burden of not knowing, he was very upfront with everything and worked with us to envision our dream home, and would offer compromises if things were perceived as out of budget, we even got down to the detail of where things would be positioned, all before even signing anything. Scott the tender consultant, really went the extra mile with us, or at least it felt that way, with him we really got down to the nitty gritty details, tile height, lighting allowances, provisions and so on. Thanks to his extensive knowledge we were able to lock down a lot of the requirements, and where there were things he didn't know, he would find out and let us know as soon as he could. Promises made were kept, discussions made earlier in the process were remembered and he would honour those outcomes, really goes to show the personalised experience. Post signing of the quote and after signing of Tender, Jaymie is a star at stakeholder management, she would keep us up to date with the progress of our tender, our appointments and would always be very prompt with her email replies. Being kept up to date and informed is probably the most important part of this whole experience, I love it when CSRs are pro-active and reach out to the client. Overall, I really do think that Wisdom homes was the right builder to go with, without Les i wouldn't have even started this process, without Scott my dream home wouldn't be on paper right now, and without Jaymie i would be in the dark. Thanks everyone for contributing to my future home!

We went yesterday to the main office to attend the tender presentation; and were met by Tender Presenter Scott Muncaster, who was very professional, understood our financial situation, requirements and provided us with many honest advises during the tender that saved us money and made us happier by the end of the day. By the end of the tender, he modified the tender doccos and designs to reflect all the changes we requested on the fly, so we didn't hesitate or think much after his extensive efforts to go through everything from scratch until the last nail in the house, and we happily accepted the tender. also, worth mentioning that Phil, Scott's manager also assisted us with reducing the total cost and Scott offered to meet us after hours to assist us with signing the contract to get things going faster.

Overall very pleased with workmanship only fault would be the electrician he made two mistakes all down to not reading the plans properly that you supplied. The build was managed fairly well only fault once again not picking up the mistakes made by electrician. The customer service and support could have been a lot better but I suppose it was down to having one person leaving and another person being thrown in at the deep end half way through our build so it was poor. But no fault of either person leaving and starting. Just thought we could have been handled a lot better.

Jim our site supervisor was thorough and made sure any concern we had was looked after and addressed. Having the Portal was great, it is all in one place and we were able to check in with it at any time, and excitedly await new uploads of photos, of which there were many. Throughout the contract and build process there were changes to the technology that Commodore were offering. Commodore ensured that we had the best possible tech and appliances for what we had selected. They met their build guarantee of 24 weeks. We actually came under that.

I built the Rochester 26 with Newhaven Facade in Tarneit. The construction got completed in March 2019 and I am thankful that I went ahead with Kingsbridge Homes for my first home after sorting more than 15 builders out. Overall it was a pleasant experience and much smoother in comparison to other builders, the kind of issues they caused and ease of getting those resolved. Staff: It was the most important thing in construction and I couldn't ask for more as Vanessa was in-charge and I had no trouble at all in dealing with her. She answered all my questions and action all my requests at prompt manner. She also helped me in understanding the process and also provided some good suggestions throughout. I had a couple of site supervisors changed in the beginning of the job but I had no problem in the transition. I was especially happy with my site supervisor Tim who handled everything well and never declined any request I had or concerns I showed during the build and he rectified each and every item as per my wish. Tim did not delayed anything purposely, infact he kept me informed with the estimated finish date. I had to request him to move in early as my lease was getting finished within few days, he made all the arrangement for the move even when there were few minor things to be done. He did not forget or leave the tasks in middle after our move and got everything done at the earliest for us to enjoy the new home. I am highly impressed with his honesty, flexibility and accountability on this job. It was a "No Fuss At All" experience with this team. Workmanship: Like any other builder, there were some issues but those were not big enough to not have resolved. Workmanship was great and duly. Most importantly, if I was not happy with any work, Tim was ready to get all those redo without any fuss. He waited for all the inspection reports my independent inspector provided and actioned each item before moving to next stage. Cost: I must say that I got a good deal and I was happy with it. The estimated and the actual cost did not vary much. I did made some changes and upgrades during construction but unlike other builders, they only charged me for the cost, not for making variation to the contract. Its been 2 and a half month since I moved in the home and did not face any major issue. I am more than confident that Kingsbridge will resolve the maintenance issues (if any) without any delay. Thank you team for making it a wonderful experience for me. Keep up the good work!! Regards Neha

Plantation Homes

Queenslands Leading New Home Builder Single storey and double storey family homes House and Land packages in South East Queensland

Recent Reviews

We selected Plantation Homes after an incredible experience with the Sales Team at Harmony on the Sunshine Coast (Emma, Lily and James) who worked with us including some last-minute major changes that delivered our preferred house at a better price than the original estimate they gave us. We also loved the practicality of almost all the high set designs we looked at, great for a family, and if the in-laws stay. We found the level of inclusions amazing, resulting in fewer upgrades (things like high ceilings, high doors, decent tapware, and much more were in the base price...such a pleasant surprise as everywhere else we had been this was not in the base price attractive so had to add >$50K, with plantation this was not the case. We also found that the sales team did not try and play down the costs involved to achieve what we wanted, meaning after colours we didn't get price shock. It aligned almost exactly with the Sales Team's guidance and estimates. Our colour selection was fantastic, Kay looked after us and guided us through the day balancing budget, style and our dreams incredibly well (it would've been so easy to double the price with all the amazing options). She also made sure the colours and style reflected us and our dream even though the finished product was something we hadn't been able to visualise or describe well until that time. And the finished product from this was out of this world!!!! The office staff have also been fantastic and efficient, with communication being responded to promptly and questions answered well (or clarified if there was any uncertainty). This has meant things have been smooth and painless for us. The build has been efficient and fast with activity on site almost every day despite some horrible weather and shipping delays caused by a supplier. Our site supervisor Adrian has been fantastic, and very practical, with no negatives on the build process or the quality of the workmanship. The office If we were to build again we would definitely use plantation, and given this is our first house this is incredibly likely. Thank you for the amazing journey, and thank you to all those in the team that have made it happen!!!! Regards, David Gooding Job #: 48249

The process was made easy for a first time builder such as myself. Plantation Homes was extremely professional and polite from initial contact to the day I received my keys. The house was finished 2 months earlier than required and to an extremely high standard. Plantation Homes provide a good variety of house plans, a much larger choice of standard inclusions which are generally a step above other builders and very good on price.

We have had nothing but smooth sailing with Perry Homes since the first day of questioning their sales staff. We found them to be refreshingly honest and always helpful. The salesman we dealt with, Tony Weston, was realistic in his advice regarding how long the build would take, and his advice turned out to be spot on. Perry started our build in late January 2014, and we moved in last Wednesday 21st May. Our building supervisors, Jason and Greg, have been helpful, obliging and friendly with everything we have asked of them. No question was out of bounds, and no detail overlooked. As for the tradies who were employed on our build, we cannot speak highly enough of them. They were all very particular about their work, and took pride in it. We found it very refreshing to have people around us who could `think for themselves` and take the initiative when it came to making decisions. At every stage we were consulted about the detail, to the point where one day, we had a call from Greg to ask if we would like him to arrange access so that we could measure up for blinds etc. In all, we are more than happy with our experience with Perry Homes and their Port Macquarie office. After speaking to a few of our new neighbours, we have been told that they wished that they had had a similar experience to ours, not the ones that they endured with other builders. In short, dealing with Perry was a pleasure, and we really would recommend them. Professional and honest attitude.

I think the thing you most hope for when building is that you receive value for money, and that the end result is one you are happy with. We have achieved both through building with Novus homes. We had some preliminary plans of our dream home which were shopped around to a few builders. As the design was a slightly more unusual build, we felt confident that Novus Homes was the builder who had the best knowledge and skill to bring our dream to life. Novus took our plans and developed them further until we had an unbelievably functional and beautiful home. Cost-wise, I believe we have a home that was incredible value for money. Options were investigated, and then presented to us of different price ranges, so we could choose where we spent our money. Throughout the planning process, we were kept updated at all times. Any concerns or questions we had were investigated and answered, with options provided to give us choice. The portal is a great overview of where you are in the build and what upcoming tasks lie ahead. Once the build was started, it progressed at a speedy rate. Our Supervisor had incredible knowledge and attention to detail which has resulted in a home which is a high standard. Make no mistake, issues will arise when you are building. The quality of the builder is shown in the speed they respond, and the way they overcome any issue. In this respect, Novus Homes exceeded our expectations, providing solutions which has enhanced our home. All trades on the site (and we lived behind the build) were craftsmen who took great pride in their work. They were also very respectful and kept the site tidy. We really feel that a good outcome for us was Novus Homes top priority, and this was the motivation behind every aspect of the build. We would wholeheartedly recommend them as a builder.

PJ Burns

For stunning design superior craftsmanship quality products and the best value in QLD talk to PJ Burns Home Builders Were here to help

Recent Reviews

-- Update: November 2016 -- After not quite 4 years in our home, I've decided that unfortunately I need to come and update this review for a couple of reasons. The first is that we've encountered some issues with the property, such as: 1. A burst water pipe. 2. A sink drain that became stuck in the 'closed' position. 3. Shower taps that fail to stop the flow of water. And the second is that actually getting PJ Burns to tend to any of these problems has been a nightmare. I could forgive and forget if they'd actually fix these problems promptly when we report them. But what actually happens is that my partner sends them a polite e-mail reporting the problem and requesting that they fix it, and then they respond saying that they have no intention of doing so and/or accuse us of causing the problems ourselves (sorry, but why on Earth would I be digging up the water pipes, PJ Burns???). Then I have to get involved and firmly explain things they should already know, such as the terms of the QBCC warranty and their obligations under Australian consumer law. Then some weeks later they admit that I'm right and fix the problem. In the case of the burst pipe, at least (we ended up with a sizeable sinkhole on our property thanks to PJ Burns's procrastination, and did they bother to do anything about that? Of course not). Or they just go silent, as in the case of the other two issues. Now I've got an unusable sink and a leaking shower in a house that's not even 4 years old, and PJ Burns couldn't care less. This is unacceptable, and I'm probably going to have to drag in the QBCC, the Office of Fair Trading, the ACCC, and possibly even QCAT before the problem is solved. Because it's not like I have anything better to do with my time. So I'm deducting 1 star for the fact that these issues occurred in the first place, and 1 star for the builder's appalling lack of post-build support and service and complete unwillingness to stand by the quality of their work and do right by their customers. -- Original Review (4/5) -- My experience with PJ Burns can only be reviewed in two parts. The first part is their sales process which is, in a word, terrible. It's simplest to just enumerate all the things our sales rep(s) (my wife and I dealt with two of them) did wrong: 1. Gave misleading advice about what was part of their "standard" inclusions and what was not (i.e. showed a demo house, said "everything you see here is standard", and then *after* we had signed our contract said "oh, by the way, this that and the other aren't standard, so you'll have to pay extra for them"). 2. Ignored questions and inquiries sent via email, SMS, and phone. Often the only way to get an issue resolved was to go down to their office in person. Some questions they just plain did not answer at all. 3. Constantly attempted to rush us into signing a contract despite repeated statements that we did not want to rush and that we'd rather take the time to make sure the contract was perfect *before* signing (this is standard advice to anyone building a home, regardless of builder). 4. Told us, in writing (e-mail communication) that they would do something, then tried to tell us that they weren't going to because it wasn't mentioned in our contract (if you're a law buff you'll note that the Telecommunications Act of 1997 forbids this). After *several* arguments on the subject they finally agreed to honor their word. 5. Made simple mistakes like double-billing the same item and required us to point out the same errors several times (see #2) before they fixed it. Repeatedly pressured us to sign the contract while it still had errors in it (see #3). 6. Engaged us with an attitude of "you can make changes before construction commences without having to worry about fees" and then threatened to hit us with admin fees if we didn't hurry up and sign the final contract (see #3). Though to be fair I must note that in the end we were not hit with any fees. 7. Were completely unable to perform simple research tasks such as contacting a vendor and determining if they can or cannot do something. Long story short we were only able to get some inclusions by investing our own time talking to the builder's vendors and confirming the various options available. 8. Scheduled appointments/phone conversations that never actually took place. With all these issues it's easy to overlook what they did right. The sales team did an excellent job helping us with our floorplan. Initially they were flexible and receptive to changes. Our color consultant did a superb job guiding us through the color selection process, including responding to any questions that we had. Her price estimates were often far off the mark (typically around half the actual quoted price), but that's minor considering how well she handled everything else. In the end, however, the bad far outweighs the good. We almost abandoned the project, in fact. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed and we moved forward with the build, but on an objective scale I have to rate my sales experience a 1 / 5. But if you pull up reviews for any other builder you will find people with the same complaints. So in that sense PJ Burns is no worse than other builders, and the problems noted above are endemic to the building industry itself; not specific to PJ Burns. So for being not worse than any other builder, I'll bump that score up to 2 / 5. The industry as a whole still rates 1 / 5. Seriously guys, it's time to improve. On the other side of the coin is the actual construction process itself. After the nightmarish sales process we were really expecting the worst. Fortunately our fears proved unfounded, as our site supervisor was superb. Unlike our sales rep, he always dealt with us in an honest and forthright manner. Although sometimes difficult to get ahold of, he always made sure to address all of our questions/concerns. When we found things that needed fixing, he fixed them. When he said he'd do something, he did it. Overall the build quality on our home seems very good, and the project was completed in about 14 weeks. Given our awesome supervisor and build quality/speed I'd give the construction process a 4.5 / 5. I'm deducting 0.5 due to the retaining wall that PJ Burns put in. We paid several grand for that thing, and it already looks kind of sad (bowed beams, some poorly made cuts, etc.). Given that it's the end result that matters, I'm giving PJ Burns a "weighted average" score of 4 / 5. That's a bit generous, but at the end of the day if you can suffer through their sales process you'll at least get a very nice house for your trouble. With respect to cost, PJ Burns offers competitive base rates, though many of their upgrade prices seem very inflated. Suffice to say that you can save a good amount of cash by providing your own internal hardware (think toilets, tapware, floor wastes, ceiling fans, appliances, etc.) and/or working out an off-contract deal. Build quality, speed, hands-on/lots of options Sales process, high markup on some items if you put them in the contract

As first home buyers who really had no clue about the process, we couldnt have found a better builder. PJ Burns are fantastic from every angle. Communication is of utmost importance to me - And for this PJ Burns gets gold stars all the way. Phone calls and emails are ALWAYS returned, same day. Staff at the head office are always friendly and helpful. We are thrilled with our home and feel thankful that we went through the building process with a minimum of stress (stress caused only by the bank!) I posted my first review in early September prior to the build start. It has now been 10 weeks and we have a completed house. We couldnt be happier. The entire building process has gone smoothly for us. Our Site Supervisor was great - always encouraging us to ask questions and being very flexible in his approach, like nothing was ever a hassle. The tradies on site were always helpful and friendly. They seem to take great pride in their work and have the attitude "do it once and do it properly". There were no great stuff ups like you hear about from other people. It was just a simple process of getting everything done as it should be. Our salesman from the WoodGrove Sales Office - [name censored] - you are a man of your word! Said he would have the contract to us in a week, and he did. Said they would build within the time frame - and they did! Not only that, but they were 2 weeks ahead of our contracted schedule. Dont have any complaints

Our journey to build our first home with Henley Homes has been smooth one except that at the end it was a bit slow. The colours appointment was again amazing and smooth, and my administrator and Building supervisor kept me up to date with regular status confirmations. In the last stages, there were some missing items. We are very much pleased with our build and would be happy to recommend Henley to family and friends. I feel the handover gift wasn't that impressive compared to what other builders offer or even the plantation homes. It was just two types of small T2 tea sachets and a tiny jug and 2 glasses packed in a huge box.

This is the second time we have built with our Consultant Tristan. 1st time with Ideal homes. Tristan was upfront and so easy to deal with, and made our process from the beginning to end fantastic. He was always on hand to return calls and communicate with us throughout the building process. Top bloke. Prestart was awesome also, Alanna is very good at what she does, and guided us through this tough process with ease, and was great in following up for us. We got our keys to our new home in the allocated time. Nothing was any trouble for both Tristan and Alanna and made the whole experience of building a great one. The only complaint would be the standard of the plastering on most of the internal walls and the building supervisors attitude towards this was very blasé.

Building a new home with Hallmark was an easy decision for us to make as it was clear to us from the very beginning when we met Cassie Linwood (Sales, Northlakes office) that she would be the one who would help us to achieve this. Cassie not only made us feel that we were her ONLY clients, but she was a very pleasant, good-humoured, helpful and professional salesperson with extensive knowledge about planning and design to achieve the desired outcome for us as a family. We were carefully guided and given the best advice when needed in all aspects of the design process. Cassie was mindful of our budget and worked with us drawing on her valuable experience of building her own home with Hallmark to achieve the best design to suit our needs and lifestyle. She also impressed us with her understanding of what works and doesn’t and made many practical suggestions that will benefit us which we never would have thought of on our own. We cannot express enough our gratitude to Cassie for a great experience planning our new home! When it came to choosing colours, tiles, electrical etc, Hallmark had an amazing team, especially Emma-Rose, Jade and Amy, who were very patient with us as this to us was a difficult task as we knew we would have to live with our choices but by providing us with many options, valuable suggestions and advice thankfully they made this part of the decision making process an easy one - nothing was too much trouble for them. Although our home at the moment is only at stage 3 of 5, we are very pleased so far with the way Hallmark staff in general have dealt with us thusfar. Our experience to date has been great thanks to a chain of highly committed and dedicated staff in the Head Office - Hayley Chaplin (Receptionist) who is always pleasant over the phone, and Sabina Foster (Preconstruction Manager) who demonstrated a deep passion and sincerity to help us through the preconstruction process. She always attended to our questions promptly and with a great spirit, investigating issues of concern to us and providing clear explanations to put our minds at ease. We found her to be a very competent person to deal with -- and in the Construction department, Andrew, manager and Matthew, site supervisor, never made us feel as if we were bothering them by asking too many questions (or dumb questions) and they always deal with us in a polite manner. They are always available to talk us through the details of each stage and expected completion despite their many commitments to other builds. They were excellent when it came to following through rectifying issues in a manner that received glowing praise from our private inspector, quote “it is a pleasure to note that this dwelling presented extremely well for reinspection a credit to the builder and all involved”.We have not experienced a moment where we have not been supported and given the right advice moving forward. We highly recommend Hallmark to anyone looking for a great experience building their home. We have already recommended Hallmark to one of our friends, as well as interested neighbours. If we are to build again, we would definitely choose Hallmark.

I built my first home with Fairmont Homes NSW and I must say, the build quality is absolutely exceptional. I've been living in my new home for approx. two (2) months now and still to this date receive SO MANY compliments on how amazing the house is! There's been no issues; nothing's leaked, fallen over or toppled - so I am very pleased! The customer service in the initial sales stage, administration, colours/selections, approvals, on-site and after handover have been well maintained at a high level. The staff were friendly, accommodating and wonderful to deal with. I also wanted to share with you all that it was the small details that really made an impact on my whole experience, such as: 1) A staff member called me to inform that the towel rail position "as per the plan" would not be ideal as the towels when hung would actually touch the floor. He was on-site at the time and rung me to offer his suggestion of putting it a different location that would be much more practical, rather than just installing it "as per the plan". 2) Upon handover of my home the site was left clean and tidy (compared to my neighbours who had built with other builders and so much rubbish was left behind) These are only just a few examples I can think of right now, but it really showed me that they actually care about their customers and are very professional in what they do. I highly recommend Fairmont Homes NSW to everyone, and I would definitely build with them again!

our experience with oracle platinum during the sales stage has been really good one.

Aashli helped us design our house to what we wanted and within a very reasonable price point. she went above and beyond with staying in the office very late so we could get all our documents signed and sorted and to move forward with the process. If you happen to get Aashli as your sales consultant your in very good hands. looking forward to seeing how the rest of the build goes and hopefully oracle will keep up the good work they have done so far.

I spent several years looking at homes to build and I kept comparing everything to the Sarah Homes Whitely 180. So I decided to build it. My dream has always been to have a beach house to live in. I knew nothing about building. Sarah Homes helped me every step along the way. They adjusted the plans and materials to suit what I wanted. The Building Supervisor was so helpful and kept me informed of everything that was going on. He even provided advice and help for the other things outside of building the house, like rainwater systems, suppliers in the area and all the other little things a new home builder/buyer doesn't know. Even when and external contractor let them down, they wouldn't compromise on quality and insisted on replacement of the materials until it was 100% right. In the long run, the time delay was worth it for the quality of the finish. Overall, I love my new home and would recommend Sarah Homes to friends. Quality results, dependable communication, helpful all the way and the building supervisor had great local knowledge of the area, conditions, standards required by law... Timeline blew out due to delays by roofing contractor who had to replace roof 3 times due to quality issues.

We built the Lawson two storey. From the start our experience with Sarah homes was great, our sales consultant was very helpful and we felt very comfortable with him. The selection process was also quite easy, although we had a bit of trouble when wanting to make a change to a tile colour but that all got sorted out in the end. Our site superviser was fantastic and kept us informed all the way along which we really appreciated. We are happy with the structual standard of our home but were a bit disappointed in some of the painting, there were a few drips in the outside and inside there were areas that were very thin. Overall, we are happy with the end product and would be happy to recommend Sarah Homes to anyone looking to build. good communication from staff, value for money, good products used.

We have now been living in our new Englehart Home for 10 months and thought it would now be appropriate to comment on our experience from the initial consultation to after care service since handover. Our first interaction with Englehart homes was at their 'Saville' display home in Belmore road, North Balwyn. After inspecting several other display homes in the area, we were immediately impressed with the quality of workmanship and attention to detail. We engaged Englehart homes as we wanted a quality built home. The design process commenced and we were impressed with our interactions with the Englehart team. They considered all of our needs and encouraged us to provide them with as many design details as we could about what we considered to be important to us. Admittedly, the whole design process took quite a long time but in the end it was worth it because there were minimal design alterations and variations hence saving us some money. In the end, Englehart produced a design within our budget and that met our design brief. The building process was generally very smooth. Apart from some initial unforeseen site costs due to a very challenging block, the build was completed on time and on budget. The tradesmen employed were professionals and experienced. It was clearly evident that Englehart homes has access to quality trades and don't cut corners by employing persons that cannot met their quality assurance processes. The site supervisor was pleasant to deal with and kept us informed of the progress of the build, inviting our feedback as required. The supervisor always answered any questions or concerns that we had and encouraged several on site meeting with various trades including tilers, electricians and cabinet makers to discuss various options available. Two weeks prior to handover, I met with the construction manager and supervisor to inspect the home. As we walked through the home, I was impressed at the tiny details that the construction manager was picking up on including minor paint imperfections and surface scratches. Every detail and item identified was documented and rectified prior to handover. Credits were provided for works that came in under budget and only a couple of items incurred a variation cost even though we ended up with about 150 (which I am rod is quite low). Upon moving into our home, we have had a couple of minor issues. All of these were addressed immediately, with no fuss and no charge. The construction manager was outstanding in his service and attitude. I would have absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Englehart Homes to my family and friends. Quality finishes, excellent trades, open and transparent interactions, attention to detail. Excellent after care service.

We built 2 homes with Kaplan in 2014/5. First one because it was a house and land package, and the second one because it was the best quote for a double storey 4 bed, 2 bath, 1 garage we could find. And we were not disappointed! Both homes were built seamlessly and with quality, even with some above average fittings and upgrades thrown in by the builder. But most of, the service from Kaplan was second to none! We are usually quite critical of the service provided by most businesses, but we cannot fault them! Ben was enthusiastic and knowledgeable to deal with initially in the sales process, and James during the design and build process is exceptional, always attending to our every need! We will definitely build with them again and cannot recommend them more, in an industry which is rife with shoddy businesses, we are happy we found them!

This was our second time around building with Gallery Living (have already reviewed the first build). When we decided to build again we went straight to Gallery Living based on the strength of our first build. We had [name removed] at the Aldinga display village as our sales consultant and she was outstanding. If I was reviewing her service it would be 5 stars. She had a good design eye, was efficient, communicated clearly and the initial stages went very smoothly. Unfortunately, once [name removed] left the process we found things a lot more frustrating. The council process went really quickly (thankfully) but it then took Gallery Living quite some time to start. The communication with both the office and site staff was very inconsistent and, at times, quite unacceptable. Once the build did finally get going, the actual build time wasn't too bad. However, having now been in the place for a year, we're finding the quality not nearly as good as our first build. Some examples of this include several walls noticeably not square, poorly hung doors and external cladding that is roughly finished in several spots. The site supervisor was obviously very good, but he just wasn't involved to the same extent (too busy) as the supervisor first time around was, which has no doubt had an impact on the final product. I sent detailed feedback at the end of our build, which the general manager did reply to (for which I am grateful). Sadly though, while we love the design and functionality of the Gallery Living brand, I don't think we would use them again, unless several aspects of the current experience were improved.

From the first time visiting Bronwyn in the display home, Gallery Living really showed attention to detail bringing our vision to a reality. We chose Gallery as the Picasso matched the basic layout we were after for our North facing block. Working with Bronwyn through many iterations to get the plan just right to our requirements was nothing short of a pleasure. Bronwyn's enthusiasm for house design really showed and her advice was invaluable in providing us with an energy efficient, comfortable and practical house. We are absolutely ecstatic with the result and love our new house that feels more like a lavish hotel than a house. Reality is that no build is without its issues and ours was no different. However, you can't tell how good a company is until they deal with a problem. Whilst Andrew was sometimes hard to contact (usually a couple of days), we always had practical discussions around any issues and came to good resolutions that left us satisfied. I strongly suggest with any build that you are visiting site on a regular basis to ensure you pick up issues as they are occurring rather than a longer defect list at the end. We are very happy with the result, the quality of workmanship is very good and the few minor defects that we reported have been resolved in a timely manner. I would certainly engage Gallery Living, and in particular Bronwyn, to conduct another design and build for us. It certainly won't be for a replacement residence for us as we love this one too much, but we will certainly be working on a sub-division with them.

Recent Reviews

At the beginning of our house building process we thought that we had to go with a custom builder to achieve the quality we wanted and to build the house we have designed together with a Designer. We therefore signed up first with Beaumonde Homes. However, the relationship with Beaumonde turned sour after our Sales contact left the company. After this experience we approached Atrium Homes before we realised that this also would not work for us in any way. Once again, we were looking for another builder which we found in Gemmill Homes. We never thought that a project builder could build us the quality home we were really after. We had quite a lot of special requests which Gemmill was able to accommodate, which was fantastic for us (e.g. Using our own earth worker, upgrade in slab footings, concrete quality and reinforcement, double glazed windows and sliding doors from our preferred supplier, installation of our supplied kitchen appliances and upgrade in wall insulation and ceiling insulation). Later, during the building process, we again realised how helpful our builder was in allowing us to complete certain items that we paid for directly before handover. Some of those items are the pool, the tiled floor, installation of roller shutters, security screens, security alarm and especially the lights throughout the entire house. The light installation was really needed to get the best quality on our ceiling insulation. This obviously saved us time and money and has also given us the overall good quality finish we were after. We are really happy with the design of our new custom-built home. It has taken us a very long time to have our dream home completed because of all the special requests we had, however, we believe that Gemmill Homes have made the dream come true. Over the entire process, we always dealt with the same competent people at Gemmill. Special thanks and credit must be given to Lindy Webb (Sales) and to James Cole (Group Construction Manager). Both of them have gone above and beyond and provided outstanding work and support on our house building project. We simply could not have done it without them. If we were to build again in the future, we would definitely engage Gemmill Homes once more, knowing that we can get a good house that is not just a copy of an existing design. It’s great to see that one does not need to go to an overpriced custom builder to get a great home with the expected high quality."

We finished our home with Lily about 3 months ago. It was a bumpy ride but we got there in the end and have no major complaints. All the problems we came across were dealt with in the building stage as we stayed in contact with the site manager regularly. The only issue would be the office staff must be under a lot of pressure and won't go out of their way to help you, they generally give you attitude when communicating with them. AS far as finishes go they were all acceptable and the build was completed in 8months for a 2 storey home, could have been faster but with weather etc that is beyond control. The upside is that they are very flexible and allow you to do things on your own and supply your fittings instead of theirs. I imagine you won't find anyone better when it comes to volume builders as these problems would arise with any builder, I would rather use them in the future as going to another builder as we already have gotten to know how they work. I hope this review helps others who are thinking about Lily homes great price, flexible communication in office

Starting from our initial discussion with Raghu who took personal care in ensuring our expectations are met (which I presume he does for every other customer of theirs), the help extended by Tess in our colour selections, finalizing the plan and sketches with David, regular updates on the status of constructions from Clive and Gay, and the entire team at East West Homes gave no room to complain as they always put customers before their business and most importantly the Keys were handed over. Not to forget the timely follow up calls from Mardi right through the construction, enquiring about the overall progress and grievances if there are any. Even the post construction support was very good, promptly attended to even though minor in nature. Given the final outcome I would definitely recommend EWH to my friends and have already started doing it

I took the nervous step of building my first investment home. After much research with a range of builders I settled on East West Homes. I felt more comfortable with a smaller builder and my decision was vindicated when I met with the sales person [name removed]. He was most professional and provided me with all the information I requested and answered all my questions. Construction commenced and ran very smoothly. There were a few small things I was unsure about, however the supervisor always availed himself to answer my questions and was happy to meet me at the property. I am very happy with the finished product and I found the whole team at East West Homes very approachable. Good design, value for money, good customer service

Mincove are currently building my Fiance and I's first home! Being first home buyers we were a bit worried about the price blowing out (heard too many horror stories), however we did a free tender with Mincove which mean't we knew the price the whole time! We chose Mincove due to their great quality and being a local builder - this made our selection day super easy because everything was close. The sales team were fantastic to deal with, our selections consultant was great and communication with our site supervisor has been outstanding. I'd recommend Mincove in a heartbeat!

Not many building companies do custom builds, but Mincove came to task and built our Hampton inspired 4 bedroom house and 1 bedroom unit. Excellent quality and fast customer service. No issue was too hard to resolve and detailed answers always were forth coming when Mincove was approached with concerns. The staff at Mincove like Craig - Project Manager, Bede - Production Manager and Kristy - Administration Coordinator come highly recommended to look after you if you chose to build with Mincove. As for costings, you pay for quality. We paid and Mincove delivered. I would highly recommend Mincove for your next build.

Recent Reviews

Being a first home buyer I made sure I did plenty of research to find the right builder to suit my needs. This review site I found was very helpful in me making my decision. Unfortunately I had to pull out from another builder who I don't care to mention their name here as they gave me the run around and were very deceptive the whole way through but I didn't realise how deceptive until after I signed with them (if a sales rep doesn't want to give you proper plans drawn up by their draftsman for one reason or another- run for the hills!!) It was a costly exercise but it was the best thing I ever did as I found the right builder for me through Broadway and haven't looked back. In all they have been wonderful to work with from start to finish. I was attracted to their functional floor plans and value for money. Then my sales rep (Nick) was always upfront and professional to deal with, nothing was too big or too small to change, prestart girls were lovely and very helpful throughout the whole build, and then there was a bit of a delay on getting me the final paperwork and slab down, but then the rest of the build was quite transparent and went relatively as smoothly as can be expected. Even changeovers between site supervisors appeared seamless and they were all very hands on, easily contactable, professional and passionate on building a quality house that met industry standards. They seemed to use good trades at each stage as I was very happy with the quality of the workmanship throughout the build. The final product was 2 months behind schedule but in all I would highly recommend Broadway for their value for money, quality of build and professional honest service. I was exceptionally impressed with how professional and passionate all their staff were at every stage of the build to make sure my expectations were met on this build. Now I am in and over the moon with how my dream home has come out!! My final word of advice to first home buyers is to question everything that you feel doesn't sound right as your gut instinct is usually correct. As it can be up to the builder you choose that makes it or breaks it. Good luck!

Wow what an experience the last 18 months has been, looking at multiple builders to build our dream home but as soon as we met with the team at Stannard we knew we had found our builder. the entire journey was full of communication and advise to help ensure we had all the information to complete our home. Once the design was over and the build started wow it went so smooth and quick, the level of professionalism was above what i thought i could get out of a builder, the quality is amazing and the finish incredible. The team managed the build so well and everything just went like clock work, as they say it just making sure everything is scheduled and planned and boy was it, everything happened when it was planned to. The level of customer service and support in providing options and being open to what we wanted was great, we spoke so often and emailed the team felt like part of my family. i have so much respect and envy for what the team at Stannards do and how they do it. A massive thankyou to everyone involved and Yes i'm more than happy to recommend Stannard Family Homes

I began discussions with Stannard Family Homes well over a year ago and my build is now in the process of construction. The service I have received from Phil during every step of the process, from part demolition of my current home, subdivision, pre-construction and now mid-construction has been and continues to be nothing short of exceptional. He has gone over and above what I could have expected. Having had some preliminary discussions with other builders before selecting Stannard Family Homes, I am SO happy that I chose to go with Stannards. Nothing is too much trouble for Phil and he is always quick to respond to any questions I might have and offer suggestions. I am now looking forward to the build process going forward in the New Year.

New Home Builders Sydney

Jandson Homes are new home builders Sydney who specialise in medium density housing

Recent Reviews

We have built with Jandson Homes twice now, 6 years apart. The quality of the finishes was first rate and the 'trades' we encountered were consistently good in both homes. In particular, superb brick-laying, carpentry and paint work on both homes. The staff were honest and responsive. We would build with Jandson again (but love our current home so much that we plan on staying put for a long time!). Clever, well thought out, modern designs. Practical inclusions and finally....walls in the right places! (how many homes did we look at with beautiful, large, open rooms but no walls to put a TV or wall unit up against!). Extremely helpful staff, both at Homeworld and in the office. We found their pricing to be on the high side and the air-conditioning company they deal with incredibly rude.

As a first home buyer, we chose a house and land package from Jandson Homes and I must say that we are glad that we did. They had quality inclusions and a great package for most of our upgrade requirements, without actually draining our pockets. Right from the beginning of the process, they have been completely transparent about the inclusions and exclusions. Their sales person was upfront in letting us know the pros and cons of various choices that we were making. The design team was very knowledgeable and helped us visualize the various color, tile selections etc. The council approval process was handled seamlessly. The client coordinator ensured to send weekly updates about the progress, which we found quite useful in organizing things at our end. The construction supervisor was very efficient in addressing our queries and concerns. We are impressed by the great team that was behind the execution of our home. The whole construction process was completed ahead of schedule by almost a month. This purchase is a complete value for our money. Quick construction, High quality, Great team, Value for money experience.

Metro took over construction of our 2 houses from the previous builder that went into bankruptcy. They were fair and reasonable in their quotes and ensured that the transition was quick and seamless. Journey through the Construction was overall comfortable. There were definitely some misses along the way but the build manager responded actively every time and fix them up as per the plan. Management of Metro (especially their Director) played a key role and demonstrated cooperation and understanding, which personally to me was helpful especially considering that we had gone through a lot already with the previous builder and then the insurance process. We are impressed with what's delivered to us as the end product.

I built my first home with Metro and had a great experience. From the start the sales staff showed high knowledge in the product (and the building process as a whole) & conducted dealings in an honest and caring manner. At the beginning the selections process appeared overwhelming, however my mind was put at ease once I spoke with the builder and their suppliers. By the end I was comfortable with the choices that I made. Throughout the build I was kept well informed and the build time was within the time frame that was originally quoted. I am happy with the end product and enjoying my first newly built home.

What can I say, once we settled with Indigo as our builder it became a seamless exercise dealing with Shelby and Dane and the rest of the team. Communication was always great. The initial talks all costs were up front with no hidden surprises throughout the build. Indigo really do plan and execute to a high standard. I would build with them again in the future. Thanks again for all your work and support.

The salesman was very helpful but once we signed we had no communication on when the house was going to start. They had 3 supervisors over the project and the only time we spoke to one of them was when we called them. Overall the house is OK but the quality of the plastering is very poor. They had an independant report completed which highlighted in writing that the workmanship was poor but they still refuse to fix anything. Very disappointing when you can still see nail heads and manual trowel lines all over the ceiling. All I can say is inspect your house very closely and don't do the handover until you look at the ceiling. Modified the design to what we wanted Poor Finish and Poor Communication
