I am still at a loss as I am writing this. I have built several times before, thought I had learned my lessons, and proceeded with a very cautious approach. Nevertheless 101 Residential have shown they have no regard for doing the right thing, and it’s all about profits, regardless of the impact to their customers . Once they have your deposit, they believe they have a license to do whatever they want. Let’s prove them wrong. I am happy to provide support/ join forces with anyone who has had the same experience or needs support. Please be wary of this builder, for your sake, the sake of your family, and your hard earned dollars!
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.
Very good builders, flexible, timely, and high quality work
Slight period of communication breakdown and delays during pre-start but after staffing changes our job was taken over by pre-site coordinator Steph who worked diligently to rectified everything. Steph was absolutely excellent! Highly motivated, excellent communication, professional, resourceful & knowledgeable. Our site Manager Brent has also been great, prompt communication & organised.

Beautiful home, excellent builder
101 Residential have just got our house to lock up stage and it's looking fantastic! We designed our home ourselves, though with the help of 101's John Heslop to guide us. He made lots of wonderful suggestions of which we are now very greatful! Having never built before we were worried that our finishes wouldn't look like the display homes, but yesterday our kitchen went in and looks amazing!! We've been very particular about the finishes, wanting a unique design and the 101 team have 'nailed' it. Nick (our site supervisor) has been really un...derstanding, helpful and has ensured that our house has progressed quicker than we had imagined. Ruth at 101 always gets back to our emails so quickly and is always happy to answer our 'silly' questions! I would definitely recommend building with the 101 team. Alita

Excellent service & quality build
Scott park group has been great to our family, we build first home 7 years back from Red Ink and now our second home with 101. They let you make amendments and turn around the work quickly. We are quite happy with the quality of the build, client liaison staff and the site supervisor. We had some confusion on the cost variations but they were more then happy to assist us and sort things out. Highly recommend 101 for your next built.

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.

Ian Rodwell 101 Residential
From our first contact with Ian until our last conversation before the plans moved to the next stage we were impressed more each time with Ian's professionalism and knowledge.
This is the 3rd build for us and we were continually impressed with Ian's approach. He listened to what we asked for but, more importantly, took the time to understand what we were trying to achieve and used his experience and knowledge to either agree with our request or suggested practical changes that incorporated what we wanted and may not of otherwise considered.

Ian Rodwell Design and building consultant
We haven't started our builld as yet but the experience we have had with our Building and design consultant Ian Rodwell has been 1st class.
We purchased a very narrow block of land and was looking at what some of the display homes builders around Perth had built.we spoke to a few salesmen and they showed us what was possible. We dropped in to the 101 Hamilton display home in Baldavis and loved the quality and design of the display home. The home could not be built on our block.We had great talk to Ian and discussed what we wanted. A week late...
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.
