Why Stylish Homes:

I was always aware of the quality of Stylish Homes, having been through their show home with various different friends in the past. As I had a limited budget I had initially thought this would not be an affordable way to go for me. I was encouraged by a family member to go and have a chat, make an appointment – which I did.


After having a well-informed discussion with Rex, I was surprised to see not only was this attainable for me, but I also realised very quickly it would be a personalised journey I was embarking on. This resulted in my beautiful home I have now occupied for a few months.



From the outset I felt comfortable and treated like a valued client. Planning was personalised. Different scenarios were discussed and within no time I had what I had always envisaged as my perfect home on paper. During all of the planning stage I was well informed and notified if there were any issues. When anything came up, e.g. in dealing with extra council requests that caused problems re starting the build, I was well supported and so pleased I was not dealing with this on my own.



Costings were always very transparent during the build. I was always given alternatives/choices that were explained clearly if an issue came up. Due to the transparency and the fact I was well informed I was able to complete my build well within my budget.


The Build:

An amazing group of very professional subcontractors began the build under the watchful eye of Stylish Homes. I was well informed with photographs, even though I live in Mangawhai and could see the progress. I was always informed, by personal visits or emails of the next stages.



As soon as the build started I was amazed at how quickly things came together. The organisation of Stylish Homes around having contractors in place is amazing at a very busy time of building in this area. I could not have asked for better.


The Experience:

The experience was amazing. Building your own home is stressful, they say, however I felt that the stress was taken off me, and a very professional group of people took me through a journey I had waited my whole life to do. They became like a part of a family that are totally there for you. Through this experience, I know I have met some amazing people that will always be very special to me.


I have shared my experience with others, recommending Stylish Homes and their personalised service. If I had to go through a new build again I would use the same company, and would always recommend Rex, Judy, Teresa, Troy and Ralph at Stylish Homes.


Thank you for your specialised service. I have a very stylish, modern, beautiful home especially designed for me.
