Build and quality happy with had some issues they have been rectified
Happy with the build had a couple of issues that 101 have promised to rectify. It was a tuff market to build in with the lack of contractors and everyone building at the same time. The options that 101 offer are of good quality and there is plenty of options. We did have a few clients liaison officers but during these times it would be a tuff job.
Started Great and Finished Great
We are very happy to be in our home and looking forward in forgetting the bumps in our build.
Our fantastic Sales and Design Consultant Andre was just amazing. We just love his Design for our home and his knowledge of the industry was very helpful.
Prestart didn't go so well, things got lost between draft and VO forms and a few communication problems. We found all the trades that worked on our home professional and friendly people. Our second site supervisor Brent was very helpful and friendly and on top of things but with the mistakes on draf...
Extremely Slow Since Getting Slab Down 13 Weeks Ago
Site construction started in Feb 21 and hoping for a good hassle free building experience with 101 that reflects the many good reviews they already have here. For a start we can say that 101 have been extremely patient with me during the pre-construction phase as I worked through the process of obtaining the necessary funds for the development prior to signing contracts. Contracts were signed in September, however obtaining finance approval took me a little longer than expected and the market is now very busy with trades so it's taken a little ...longer than I hoped to get going. We have worked through the resultant cost increases of the delayed start, the slab has been installed and now just waiting on the brick layers to get moving on the next stage. Progress has been incredibly slow since getting slab down and they are stalling on confirming a date to commence brick laying, would be good to see a little more urgency to push the job on.
We built in 2018 with 101 residential which had its ups and downs the only major issue and still ongoing issue is the roof cover colour bond roofing. The first initial job was atrocious I could have done better myself with a tin opener, 101 did the right thing and done repairs but still we are having issues with the roof sheeting with rusting sheets and screws the coastal provisions they put on there products are rubbish, the roof on my house is the biggest disappointment of the whole build and I am wondering what the roof will look like in another 2 years time if nothing is done by 101 to improve it.
I started my building project reading reviews and could not really find a great one that I am happy with based on reviews.
We went with 101 after looking at 2 other options.
Overall I am satisfied with the end result. Two people really worth mentioning. They are Kumudu and Mike Morley. There were several instances where we almost packed up and left 101 but Kumudu kept patching up and made us feel looked after. Kumudu also took extra time and care going though the design/drawings to make sure that our needs are met.
Initial planning started o...
Our first time building experience started off well with our unique home being drawn up perfectly and the 3D design giving us a good look of what we expected. Next step was our pre-start and it was well below par with many things missed and not received as expected.However this step was rescued with Ruth coming through and fixing alot of the errors. The most satisfying part of our build was the professionalism and expertise that our site supervisor Mike Morley showed. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied and he kept the job flowing the entire build, thanks Mike !

Very happy with the final product
I had a custom build developed with 101 which was well managed and built before the deadline.
Overall the quality of the work was great, issues were communicated and resolved effectively.
I am very pleased with my new home and I will recommend 101 to friends and family when looking to build.
Outstanding Site Supervisor- Mick
We had a very rough and disjointed prestart process, but thank goodness Mick was our site supervisor. He was on to everything and ensured that the build went smoothly. We genuinely felt confident with Mick overseeing our build. Our home is finished to a high standard and we are extremely happy with the quality workmanship. We had a couple of issues at the start with site works, but the General Manager worked with us to resolve the issue. The final cost matched the estimated cost and the build was completed ahead of schedule, which was great. Our home has turned out stunning, and a lot of that can be attributed to Mick and his team's dedication.
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.
Keen to have a satisfied customer
101 Residential is keen to ensure that customer issues are resolved and it was great to see that senior management is willing to put time and effort in to support this objective. We are mid construction and will certainly update the review when completed.

Our dream home come true!
Thank you to Andre Maliarov who started by translating our dream home (never before conceived) design into reality. Andre's attention to the details and adding everything we needed went above our expectations - he delivered on our budget too. Ruth and Bent managed our build fantastically. We just wished that there was more attention by the back end designers to our needs for a small (very small) block build. Price, build and quality though was exceptional. Would recommend 101 Residential. Craig and Jodie
Good but not perfect
We were able to perfect the design we wanted to suit our block and our needs. Prestart was great and the build was relatively smooth and quick. Our client liaison was very efficient and readily in touch with our supervisor to action things.
Handover, however, was conducted with a few items that should have been completed. Items were still being finished off by trades on the day including insistence on our feature front door handle being installed and painting touch ups. There was also an actual roof leak evidenced by water staining and mould present on the alfresco ceiling that required attention post handover.
Questions & Answers
We are having a very average experience so far and regretting our choice to build our home.
Can anyone indicate build times at the moment? Our slab is apparently not going down till mid year- how long after that?
I have heard you guys are raising your prices due to the grants. Can you confirm this? I had a meeting with one of your salesmen on Friday who confirmed you were, stay clear of this company!
Hey Colin, I have been looking into doing a new build with this new grant on offer and was sceptical with most builders increasing there prices since the grant announcement. I have learnt that the building industry has been in a slump the last 6 years with tradesman have their wages reduced. With an increase in demand the cost of building increases. As of 11 June 101 Residential have not increased their prices yet but will in the near future as are all the builders. I will looking into designs asap to try and lock in a price that can be decided upon once i have financial confirmation from my broker. Goodluck
The house we are building as gone up over 30 thousand in less than a year.
Have anyone recently built with 101? How is their build quality ? Like some of their house design but feel a bit horrified to proceed after looking at google reviews, do not wanna stuck with a leaking house since this is a huge investment.
We completely understand your concerns when making such an important decision. We can say 101 have built over 1400 homes since 2011. Initially along that journey and through the building boom, all builders had some quality issues if we are honest with ourselves, 101 were not immune to that and we have since addressed this.
We spent a lot of time developing an upper floor detailing and weatherproof system that in our view leads the market in ensuring a quality, safe, watertight home for your family that is unique to 101.
Please feel free to contact us and we explain what 101 currently do different to other builders so we can give you piece of mind.
Regards the 101 team.
