We know the nuances of the custom build sector

Long-term projects with multiple stages, complex schedules and coordinated trades means there are many cogs to manage. And many ways money can leak out. Managing cash flow and profit is essential.

We know what motivates best in breed builders

Specialist custom builders are motivated not only by a sense of pride in achieving excellent outcomes but the knowledge that a happy client is the best advertisement. Word of mouth referrals from delighted homeowners can account for 60%+ of new sales.

We know the investment involved

There’s more to building a new home than construction. Your clients as the homeowners have a vision of their “forever home” and they can be very particular. Not unreasonably demanding but still demanding.

Every new home project is an investment of your patience, planning and skill.
