Responding to an ad for a 4 bedroom 2B 2G home in Redbank Plains on Real Estate.com almost 2 years ago I met Peter from Callaway Homes.
Despite having a few other investment properties this was my 1st venture into a new build so I was quite inexperienced and a little apprehensive. Being located in Victoria, establishing a relationship over such a long distance is quite difficult, but was really no issue with Peter who is very proactive and responsive when required.
I am pleased to say Peter and Callaway homes passed every test I could apply to them. Peter was only too happy to host me one Saturday morning when visiting the estate and others in the area as part of my education. I also brought with me a very experienced and somewhat cynical local industry expert. Even he was impressed with Peter and the quality, inclusions and price. I proceed to sign the contracts with only a few cosmetic personal changes required to the plans.
The building time was in line with estimates and any minor issues post building were corrected quickly by Mark from the Callaway head office at no expense to me. Importantly there was no suprises extra’s I had to pay for.
The house looks great and I had a great quality tenant in place the week of completion paying me $380 a week. Importantly this was the amount Peter told me I would get. I also belive the house already has increased in price by $20k – $30k as Peter also predicted.
As such I had little hesitation in buying a 2nd property through Peter and we are about to start on a similar house in Yarrabilba. The price again seems quite fair and I have shared plans with a local agent who described it as a quality product.
I have no hesitation recommending these guys to anyone looking to build a quality turn key home with a smaller but more personal builder.
