  Dear Newstart, We are absolutely delighted with our new home -  it is all we hoped it would be. There were times during the earthworks stage when we reach 'rock bottom' (had to get that in), but the Newstart team went the extra mile for us and sorted out the prolems with our difficult block of land. Many thanks to everyone involved, including all the tradespeople for their excellent workmanship. We would choose to build with Newstart again and highly recommend the company without hesitation. Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year!

Best Wishes

We can't thankyou all enough for all your help, kindness, patience at times, being there for us at every step of the build and for the care you have put into building our beautifull home. We are all looking forward to moving in on the weekend a place where we can now call our home.

Kindest regards

  To Newstart Homes.

Yes we heard all the horror stories, but hwen you build with Newstart there isnt any, we would build with them again and again.

From the time we walked into the display home to our front door, there wasn't a hiccup, all went to plan. The staff are very professional, and they take so much pride in their work.

The Site Manager (Shaun) is so switched on and if the guy at the top is good it does down the line, to the trades people, as our home proved that, so if you don'd build with Newstart you are missing out on a quality home.

  To the wonderful people at Newstart Homes, Thank you for your help, support & guidance through the planning & development of our new home. We absolutely love it & thank you from the bottom of our hearts. A special thank you to Kirsty for everything you have done for us, to Gail for being amazing and to Shaun for your patience :)

To those behind the scenes that we didn't directly deal with, a huge thank you!

  When we told family & friends we had bought a block of land & had decided to build, many people told us horror stories they had experienced. As you can imagine, with it being the first time we had built, we were then extremely nervous about our decision. We started with a plan we liked & then completely modified it with the assistance of Blaine from the Coomera office. This was one of the reasons we chose to build with Newstart. Most other builders we went to wanted a deposit up front (minimum of $1000) to even sit with us & look at what we could change with the plan.

The site works were the only thing which was delayed in our build but this was no fault of Newstart, we can pin that solely on Mother Nature. With each stage progressing, we continued to wonder when the "terrible stuff' was going to happen. We can honestly say nothing in particular went wrong. Certain aspects were delayed but this was due to items being stolen from site & after speaking to friends within the building industry, we were told this was quite common. On the week before handover, we arrived to go through the minor things that we wanted fixed. We had our list but to our surprise, all the things that were on our list already had defect stickers on them. Our site supervisor had already gone through & picked on the 'faulty' work.

When we look back, towards the end we were getting impatient as we just wanted to move in! We have now been in the house just over 6 months & had the warranty check. Of the few things that we wanted fixed, only one was of major concern to us but Newstart arranged for the carpet contractor to come out & it was fixed. Although we love our house... we really enjoyed the experience & are eager to build again. And after hearing other friends stories that have built recently, we simply wouldn't risk going with another builder when there was nothing major to fault with Newstart.

  We've now taken receipt of our newly constructed Newstart home. On behalf of Rebecca & myself, I would like to say thank you for what has been an enjoyable process. We are absolutely thrilled with the final product, which apart from a few final touches, is complete. From the time we contacted Newstart to meet on site & discuss our intentions through to handover, we have been dealing wth professional, engaging & responsive Newstart staff. Thanks especially to Barry for the initial planning, Nicolette for the administration & colour selection, Gail for the admin (accounts) & Ben & Shaun for the assistance during construction. We would be more than happy to recommend Newstart to others.

  I am extremely happy with Newstart Homes. The whole building experience was very good & Shaun, the site manager, was very helpful & on the ball as to what needed to be done. I found the tradespeople including tilers, bricklayers, carpenters, electrician & painters were very professional in their work & the overall finishing of the home is superb. I would like to thank Newstart for completing the house within the time frame & without any problems that could not be fixed. My husband Brian & myself would like to thank Newstart for a wonderful experience & would recommend Newstart to anyone who is thinking of building in the future.

  I feel its important to give credit where its due. After many months of feeling out different builders the only one that had my attention was Newstart and the straight up "no strings" attitude of the whole team from Newstart. From go to whoa we had nothing but confidence and praise in the quality of work from all the tradies who were very friendly and fulll  of advice when asked many questions. If we build again, Newstart Homes would definately be the first and only port of call to make it happen. After reading some horror stories from different builders, I just have to shake my head and say "People do your homework"!! From one of the fussiest people you would ever meet, all I can say is I highly recommend talking to Barry at the new Flagstone Estate for info and advice on what your plans are. I have already recommended Newstart to many of our customers and let them know they are more than welcome to take a look at our new home and try and pick it to bits. Thankyou to the team and look forward to doing business with you again.

Pros: Quality of build & fixtures, communication, excellent tradies, price and no secrets. Very approachable site managers.

Cons: The only cons are from myself not being the most patient bloke in the world. Any issues we had (which I class as very minor) were addressed without any hassle.

  Dear Chris

As you are aware we have now taken possession of our magnificent new home here in the beautiful Grange Country Estate, Willow Vale. In fact it was just the other day whilst we were admiring the beautiful views from atop our little hill, I said to myself, could we have done any better with the house orientation, design and inclusions whilst remaining in budget. For a second or two my mind started to wonder and say, maybe this or that, before common sense returned and reminded me that we have done extremely well. Whilst we continued to reflect on the journery of the planning and construction, it also reminded us that a lot of this good work was also done in a partnership with a building company who was willing to take on the challenge of a custom build.

Research had led us to two possible companies who we believed would be flexible enough to do custom design work, but who also came with the appropriate recommendations required to achieve the desired standard we were looking for in a building company. It was one of these recommendations that actually referred us to try Newstart first. This was an accurate recommendation, as the professionalism, enthusiasm, just to name a few of the ethics displayed by your Home Building Consultant, gave us the sense of trust in that Newstart appears to stand behind its slogan 'Building Lasting Relationships'.This was to continue throughout all phases of the building process. Most pleasing was Newstart's synergistic approach, enabling us to remain proactive throughout the entire building process.

In a nutshell, Chris, we are extremely happy with the quality to which our home has been built. This quality I am also pleased to say, has been mentioned from other owners within the estate. Should the situation arise (and it has) that I am afforded the chance to make a company recommendation in the future, I will have no hesitation in doing so and pass Newstart's details on.

Yours sincerely

  Dear Newstart

I am most impressed with Newstart's service. They always return calls, supervisors are always available. They have been most flexible throughout the building process. I am also impressed with the quality of the trades people that they use. Trom the tiler, to the painter, to the electricians, plumbers, plasterers, they all took pride in their work and the job was done most professionally. To be honest, I didn't do much research about Newstart before choosing them as our builder, my first impression was their display home at Coomera Retreat. From there, the sales person assisted us in choosing our house and before long we were planning our first home. We have been most happy with Newstart and their people.

  We have built three homes through Newstart and each time I went through their salesperson, Blaine. We have found him to be most proactive and direct to the point. Newstart too were very flexible and with the help of our site manager, Ben, we found the build experience to be very safe and enjoyable. We are so pleased with the job Newstart have done for us again.

  Thanks for your prompt response with this maintenance issue and I would like to express my sentiments as I have done with other staff during the building process how great it was to deal with such a professional group of people.

  Barry (sales) was particularly good, electrical & joinery were excellent & the two supervisors were also helpful throughout. We were also more than happy with the quality of the fittings. Would we recommend Newstart - absolutely.
