My First Home!
My choice to use Bellriver Homes to build my first house in the Huntlee Estate was a great one!
From my first initial deposit to handover, the process was smooth (apart from a few minor set backs), and had no major issues. The team at Bellriver Homes made sure this was a positive experience for me, they were friendly, helpful, prompt, and always kept me updated on my build!
I would also like to specifically express my gratitude and appreciation to my site manager Rick Agostino, what a guy! From the beginning to the end of my build Rick was am... Read moreazing to work with. As it wasnt easy for me to travel to site, Rick ensured I was always up to date with every stage of the build and answered any questions I had. SUPER friendly and hard working, I had all trust that he would get the job done.. and done quickly! Thank you everyone at Bellriver Homes!
not a standup brand
I was involved in purchasing lot 7654 in green park estate in Melomba. They sold me a package, and I paid a holding deposit. By the time Bellriver presented the tender, I had sorted my finance got a conditional approval from the bank for the amount I agreed, arranged the deposit, I sold the shares I had to pay for deposit. When it came to the tender presentation, the tender was $28710 more than what I booked for.
They did not say anything about them jacking the price until the end of the tender presentation. How dodgy.
I think they just wante... Read mored to resell the property at a higher rate. I wasted my time and money in doing all the background work. If I knew they are dodgy, I would not have gone there in the first place. Far off from Australian values.
New Bellriver Home
We have just completed our build with Bellriver and our supervisor Rick has been great to work with to deliver our home. Rick took over the project half way through the build and helped push the project through so he could ensure that we would be in before Christmas.
The build is of good quality and we are very happy with the finishes, with all minor defects completed before we moved in.
Thank you for the positive Pre-Construction Experience
We decided to purchase a land in Lochinvar and build a single story house. We initially connected with Sylvi from Hereford Hill Display Homes sales team. She has been very helpful with going through few house designs and sorting out a suitable design for the land we had selected.
She was available for all the (numerous) questions we had before and after we decided on the design. Pre-construction team at the head office also was equally helpful during contract stage.
We are very happy we have selected Bellriver Homes to build our house.
We hope that the construction phase also would be as good as pre-construction phase and we would have a seamless experience and to make this dream come true.
Positive Experience in the Pre-Construction Stage
I wanted to take a moment to express my utmost satisfaction with the pre-construction phase of our project. Working with the Bellriver team has been an exceptional experience, and I am genuinely impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to detail. The thoroughness of the pre-construction review provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the project timeline, potential challenges, and the overall scope of work. It instilled a sense of confidence and trust in team's capabilities. The clear communication, transparent process... Read morees, and proactive problem-solving approach were truly commendable. I would like to specifically acknowledge Laura Jolly for her outstanding support and responsiveness throughout this phase. Thank you for your commitment to delivering quality service.
Excellent Warranty Team - post construction
I have built my house with Bellriver Homes and handover was last November. Bellriver did an amazing job and any little issues along the way was dealt with such efficiency and in a professional manner. And in the last few months I have been dealing with Jason Basuttil who is the Warranty Team Manager. Who got all the post handover defects fixed. The defects were just minor ones but Jason organised all the tradies to come out and at the times suitable to us. Jason answered all our questions and went above and beyond to help us and was very patien... Read moret with us. He was always very professional and responded to all my emails in a very efficient manner. I am planning to build another house in future and Bellriver Homes will be my first choice of builder again. A great team to work with!
Review on Bellriver homes
From the start, Bellriver have been very helpful in helping us choose the house we always wanted. We had a rough start in building our first house as our previous builder went into liquidation, and we were very hesitant on choosing a new builder. The friendly staff at the Bellriver display home at Huntlee soon turned those fears into a positive experience. Keeping us updated on a fortnightly basis with photos to show the progression of the build and if we had any concerns they were quick to respond.
We are so happy we chose Bellriver to build our dream house, we could not be any happier with the end result!
Thank you for making our DREAM HOUSE come true!
We have a beautiful home built by BELLERIVER HOMES. We’ve had a good experience working with supervisor Jason Busuttil. Plans and paperwork were clear and concise, phone calls and emails were always answered promptly and issues and concerns dealt with immediately. In addition, you could trust him to attend to your queries, concerns and requests. Overall, we are very happy with the quality and if we are to build again. Without question, we would highly recommend Belleriver homes to our family and friends!!Show details
First Home Build
Bellriver was the company of choice to build my first ever home. The Bellriver team were very communicative throughout the whole process, starting from structural changes to colour selections all the way to the end of the finish build of the house. They provided ongoing support through a variety of channels and gave ease of mind for my partner and I as we didn't know what to expect on our first build.
The overall build quality of the house is great, with very minor issues at final inspection, just some scuff marks on skirting from vacuums from the cleaning team which were fixed within hours.
Bellriver just finished constructing our investment property (house and granny flat). While there were delays beyond the builder's control, we are happy with the end product! The team at Head Office and the Building supervisor managed the construction to ensure that the house was handed over in time! They have promised to address the issues that we have raised post-construction and no doubt will sort them out efficiently. Thanks Bellriver Homes! Will definitely recommend to family and friends! My star rating would actually be 4.8!Show details
Positive experience building with Bellriver Homes
We are first home builders and are happy to say that our experience with Bellriver Homes has been largely positive and we would recommend building with them. We’ve been living in our new home for about a month now and are satisfied with the quality of the finished product.
Before the build: We modified the standard plans to suit our preferences and this process was quite smooth and straightforward.
Just before our build was about to commence was when the impact of material costs had steeply risen across all construction secto... Read morers. Due to the bad timing of our build, we had to agree on a price increase. While this was an unexpected and unwanted surprise, we could understand why it needed to happen. We appreciated the founder contacting us directly. Build: Our site manager Brett gave regular updates and was responsive to any enquiries or issues we had. The build progressed steadily throughout the weeks and months despite the material shortages and overdemand for tradespeople which we’d been warned could have an impact. One friend who built prior to us (with another builder) was amazed by the progression. During the build we noticed the electrical pole being placed on the wrong side which was eventually rectified.

Bellriver Homes is A1
In all honesty, I took a leap of faith and purchased a home and land package with Bellriver Homes as my builder through an estate in North West Sydney Overall, it has been a great experience to date. There were some hiccups out of the builder's control, re: council, gas, NBN but they made sure to follow up and keep everything going and despite these minor setbacks, my home was complete with keys and handover happening prior to the contracted finish date. I commend the work of JA.R, she has been absolutely awesome in keeping me up to date with t... Read morehe process and negotiating any changes I needed to make, the Design Team - A.T for being amazing with colour selections and helping me with our design guidelines, S.H for being honest and forthcoming with everything related to building and the whole Bellriver team for answering any questions I had; clarifying those that were confusing to this first home builder/buyer. Also big thanks to the Director of BRH for checking in and making sure my experience has been nothing less than 10/10. We are onto our second home within the family currently being built by Bellriver Homes, no doubt would highly recommend this builder to anyone who is unsure, especially after all the uncertainty and increase in cost of living that has occurred within Australia of late. Bellriver Homes' standard inclusions have been on the upper scale, especially with colour choice, tiles, bathroom, bricks etc. such a smooth selection process, they made sure all my bookings were made, worked around my work schedule which has been A1. Quality of the build is great, brands used have been up to standard, no cheap nasties. I am in the 90 day defect period and have made a small list of minor defects (expected) which is being taken care of. I did not pay a cent extra than what I agreed to (including contract variations). There were no hidden costs or surprises. This is something you don't see from many builders. They absolutely did not try to upsell me anything they knew was not worth doing pre-handover other than suggesting, key word, suggesting that structural changes should be contracted in. I had complete control over my choices and decisions and did not feel any pressure in that sense. I did ask for suggestions and opinions and was offered great help! The hardest bit is choosing colours, by far! It felt more like a friendship than doing business to be honest. Bellriver Homes is a super underrated name and a growing builder and I vouch for them being reputable, honest and offering a great experience to their customers.

Progress so far
We are currently at the frame stage of our build in Rylstone and thus far we cannot fault Bell River homes and their contractors.
From the initial consultation with the sales office to the contract process, to the design process and then construction phase, each person we have dealt with has been professional, and timely with each stage.
Each time we have had a question or query, it has been answered quickly and thoroughly.Show details
A pleasure to work with - outstanding quality
We engaged Bellriver on a job out in Oberon as they are based both in Sydney and Orange. They were incredibly easy to work with, and offered great advice for our build. We were able to take one of their standard house plans and modify it to our preferences. From start to finish everyone in head office were very easy to work with and very helpful. Our build is complete and the finishes are of outstanding quality. Our site supervisor is second to none and ensured that everything went smoothly for us. He offered us assistance and advice over and a... Read morebove his call of duty. He was on top of all the trades and ensure that the work performed was nothing short of perfection. Of course, with any build there are things that don't go exactly to plan but the site supervisor was always there to ensure we had nothing to worry about and that things would work out for us. The build came in on budget; slightly delayed but this comes down to issues in the broader construction industry post COVID. We've always had great communication from the site supervisor, head office and even phone calls from the owner to ensure that we were happy with how things were progressing. We have heard nightmare stories from friends who are building and feel very fortunate to have had such a smooth running build. The house is a masterpiece and has exceeded our expectations. Thank you Bellriver, we will definitely recommend you to our friends (my sister has since engaged you for her build too) and if we find ourselves building again you are top of our list!
Fast Build, Quality On Point
Well managed build from start to finish. Our site manager kept on top of build and rectified issues that arose. Total build time was 10 months which is great compared to other builders at the moment. Everything was of great quality, and the kitchen was exceptional. Money well spent, and will bring a great ROI when it comes to sell.Show details
Questions & Answers
We are currently in process of purchasing a land and house package with bell river. Our lawyer has requested the option deed and the vendors are not providing it until we’ve signed and have done an exchange. Has anyone been hit with an additional fee at the end of their build? Thank you
not a good builder. they keep asking for more money in the middle of building. so ennoying
We are having a terrible time with Bellriver, our 14 month project just entered its 25th month. They are pestering us for the final payment when the project is still very far from finished. We’ve had horrendous issues with communication & would not recommend them to anyone - it has been such a hugely stressful process & Bellriver continued incompetence has robbed us of any joy.
Hi,so sorry to hear this.We are also having huge problems with Bellriver.Where is your build?
Has anyone built the Rosedale 24
I am after some photos inside and out side...please and thank you
