Off to a solid start
Having entered into building with very little prior experience, Scott from Celebration Homes has been very accomodating and helpful when providing answers and guidance. I’ve received honest and upfront advice and never felt pressured into anything. Communication has been very swift and I was able to progress quickly and without issue. Looking forward to the rest of the process!
A Great Start!
We have had such a great start in the journey to building our first home with Celebration Homes. Our Sales Consultant, Kepler, was a stand out from the beginning compared to the consultants we had seen from other companies. We so appreciated the time he took and the dedication to really understanding what was important to us, and designing something that fit us, not trying to make us fit something. Communication has been transparent and timely throughout and he has made the whole process as easy as he could. It's hard not to have a great experi...ence and feel at ease when your consultant is so engaged and passionate. We really couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us through this phase and would recommend Kepler to any first home owners. Thanks so much Kepler, you are an integral part of our dream home!
Jason is beyond excellent,
It’s our first building experience and we’re able to meet different people, different personalities and different scenarios along the way but Jason stand out , he helped and pursued us with our dream house. I can’t thank Jason enough for being so consistent, considerate, informative and hardworking with all the changes and stuff with our house plan, like he would give and offer you the best of the best within budget. I can guarantee he’s the best person to consult with and will be recommending Jason to anyone and everyone. We think there aren’t enough star to give this great man a review to match his work cause it’s indeed he works beyond excellent.
A reliable and customer friendly team
I'm glad that I chose Celebration Homes as my builder to construct my dream home. I'm impressed with their excellent customer service and good quality of the construction. By receiving their frequent updates of each stage of construction, I feel it's not far away for me to move into my new house.
Cameron is more than 5 stars...
Cam was approachable from the start when we first met him at the display home. We are first time builders and he made us feel very relaxed, he was prompt and attentive every time we met. Cam has made the experience nothing short of incredible and perfect. Cam never wanted to cut corners and only wanted the best for us. Cam continued to work hard to fulfill everything we wanted. Cam has continued to help us navigate through what would normally be a stressful time for first home buyers, and has made this a very very enjoyable experience, will be recommending Cam to anyone and everyone, and we both think there aren’t enough stars to give this great man a review to match his work.
The best start to our building journey
Where do we start... after being set on the fact that home ownership was impossible in the current market Pryncess quickly made our home ownership goals a reality! We have had nothing but exceptional customer service from Pryncess from the very first time we met. Pryncess is friendly, informative and nothing is ever too much trouble! She taught us more than we ever thought we would walk away with and we have now commenced pre-construction! We are so excited to have Pryncess guide us through this journey! Can not recommend using Pryncess as your home consultant more!
Amazing start to my first building experience!
This is my first building experience and I did heaps of online research, visited countless number of display homes from north to south of the river and ended up deciding on Celebration Homes. A huge thank you to Scott Cunningham, my new home consultant for everything he has done for me so far, from choosing a right block of land, tweaking the designs to suit my requests, involving in both planning and building of my first dream home. I hope this will be a smooth building adventure! Can't wait to get my pre-construction work done and see my dream home come to life step by step.
Extremely satisfied with Celebration Homes
I decided to build with Celebration Homes after the announcement of the Federal and State housing stimulus grants in June 2020.
. I signed my preliminary agreement in September 2020.
. My contract and detailed drawings were completed in November 2020.
. Building approvals in December 2020.
. Prestart selections in January 2021.
. Siteworks commenced in February 2021.
. Slab down in March 2021.
. Key handover in October 2021.
To go through the whole building process in just over 1 year, during what was an extremely busy period, is a testame...nt to Celebration Homes. I was also fortunate enough not to incur any price rises during the build, I believe this was helped by the fact that my block was titled and I had my finance approvals in place.
Disappointed and disheartened
From beginning our journey in July 2021 everything seemed to be going so well. The sales man was great, very helpful and informative; until his part was done. Towards the end of our meetings with him, he became more rude and obnoxious and basically wanted nothing to do with us.
Moving on to our pre construction, it was great. Everything was going smoothly, pre start was incredible with the lovely [Name Removed] who was a dream to work with, as everyone else at the Home Collective team.
Fast forward into the construction phase, which is where my...
Exceptional customer service
We have had the most exceptional customer service from Pryncess at Celebrations from the very first time we met. Pryncess was friendly, informative and nothing was too much trouble. The tape measure was out more times than we can remember and the plans where changed many times so we could have our amazing theatre. Being able to meet late at night because of our work schedule's really helped the whole process.
We would highly recommend Pryncess, the meetings are enjoyable as if catching up with a friend for coffee.
A+ Customer experience + quality build = our dream home!
Customer service has been A+! From Rachel (prestart) onto Ciara (Client Liason), Chris (Client Liason) and then to Clint (Site Manager) , not to forget the Accounts team, we have had a great experience with all questions answered in a timely manner, including action taken. The build time was managed to the tee and the quality of the build is faultless. Thank you to all the teams who had a part to play in our build journey. We are so happy with our house and cannot wait to continue making it a home!
Reliable & prompt service!
After going through all the major building companies based on reviews from Shonky builders, friends & families, I chose Celebrations. It is slightly more expensive than some others who probably offer more inclusions at a lower cost(you wonder why?). However, their experienced sales reps save a lot of time. Time = money so, the extra $ you pay is for quality & assurance which ultimately saves your time. I was lucky to have Jason Kelsall who was able to grasp what I wanted and draw the plan for me without any delays. Once I paid the deposit, I wa...s constantly in touch with the rep. My titles got delayed so, I did not sign the contract until the titles were in. I was given the freedom to to make that choice. I was thankful because, the delay was beyond the estimated period. After the contract was signed, I felt like some VIP contacted by various departments for different aspects of the house. Although, it was overwhelming, I knew I had to do this to keep things going smoothly. Having more people taking care of you means you won’t overload your rep. You can ask specific questions and they will be able to answer you instantly. At the end of the day, responding to emails & requests wasn’t as hard as putting the paper work together on my own. So, I really have to thank all the staff members for their prompt actions. I took the in-house broker & settlement agent from Resolve. This again made it easy for a single lady who is trying to do everything on her own. Chris Adamson(Broker) & Calvin Placanica(settlement agent) assisted me so well that I didn’t feel a pinch. The entire process was so smooth. I was lucky to have my finance approval before I went for my Prestart. It have me a good knowledge on what I could afford and what I couldn’t. The staff members at the prestart were like Angels, Marijke Nicolau was my kind Prestart consultant. Even though, they assigned a stylist earlier on to have a run through, Prestart was still a long day! 9-5 was completely used up to shape the look of my house and yet I had to go in the next day too. Since, the staff members are extremely patient, they could put up with a choosy person like me. Building your first home is no joke especially when you haven’t lived in a house before. So, it was important to get honest opinions from the experienced staffs who would have listened to some regrets in the past.Now, I am all ready for the next chapter: BUILDING! I have not regretted a single bit thus far and I believe that Celebrations will take good care of me throughout this entire journey. This trust has been build with my personal experience with them so far and what I have heard from people whose neighbours have built with Celebrations. It is very unusual for people to recommend their neighbours’ builder. With Celebrations, it is possible. For those who are confused and need that one extra vote to go with Celebrations, take my vote!
So exciting!! Our journey towards our own home begins ❤
Beyond excited to have started our journey towards building our new home. Pryncess and the team at Celebration Homes have been fantastic in helping to deliver our dream home at an affordable price without us having to compromise on quality, and without the past sales person approach.
Although we are only at pre-construction, we are looking forward to the next stage of this journey that we are taking with the help of Celebration Homes
Scott Lewis of Celebrations homes has been very supportive and provides Excellent Customer Service. I enjoying every moment of our meetings with lots of laughter. He is very easy approachable and supported us with lots of guidance. He answered our questions promptly and provided us with detailed information. He is very professional and he absolutely gain our trusts. We will highly recommend him to our family and friends.
Scott and his assistant Charlotte Duxbury always keep us posted on the progress of our new home.
Well done guys. Please continue to keep it up
Experience so far.
We are currently getting to the end of our project with Celebration Homes and to be honest their company has left me very annoyed. I must state that in terms of the people I have dealt with at Celebration Homes they have all been very friendly and upfront and a pleasure to deal with - that goes out to [Name Removed] & [Name Removed] our client liaisons and [Name Removed] our construction manager. I am sat here wondering how my build is taking over a year to be completed - We had slab down in early March 2021 and then the brickies started in Jul...y 2021 - yes we have had terrible weather and yes there have been trade shortages I understand that and have been more than patient with the delays. I am currently paying 2 lots of household bills (rates,electric,water) on top of rent payments and a mortgage payment and Celebration homes keep delaying my build I was originally told 6 months build time, this then was blown out to a build date of mid February 2022 and now I'm being told mid March 2022. The more annoying fact is that Celebration Homes have built a display home not more than a 5 minute drive from our build in Golden Bay. This display home was build in Lakelands and has been finished off within half the time it has taken for me to get to my stage in the build. Now correct me if I'm wrong but I think morally this is an absolute disgrace - surely before selling more houses that you cant keep to time frames for customers you would finish the current houses that you have already promised to customers? I will not be recommending celebration homes and will keep all posted once me build is finally finished.
top notch builder
While I started my journey of building my first home nearly 2 years ago it was because of builders who lie to people stating things like 2k and we will get you a home. My sales consultant Jen Keenan was 100% honest about what I needed deposit wise and the steps required.
any questions I asked I had someone get back to me without the typical sales crap some will do the it has been a mostly easy ride ( finance docs and amendments were a little trying at times). The quality is good and the issues that were found were rectified or are being rectifi...
First Home Build
Originally I wasn't looking into building my own home however, after looking into some display homes with a friend the team at celebrations pointed me in the right direction to get my process started. They were the only building company that showed any interest in talking to me and discussing options that day, which already made them stand out from all the others. I had my initial consult with Michael Marshall who was very knowledgeable and supportive in taking me through each step I was required to follow to start my build, even assisting me w...ith understanding my finances. I then started my building process mid-year in 2020, everyone I have dealt with at Celebration Homes has been 100% committed to assisting me in understanding absolutely everything in each stage of my build. Kim my client liaison has assisted me with every question I have had and was always very fast with her responses. I have just come to the end of my build and have handover to get my keys next week! My site manager Mike has been awesome - I can't fault him! He has been attentive to any appointment I have needed to make on-site and during my final inspection walked me through absolutely everything! I am super happy with my decision to build with Celebrations and would recommend them to anyone looking to build. The whole process was smooth, communicated, and stress-free.
Everyone throughout the entire process has been amazing!
My initial consultant was Michael Marshall,
- awesome guy, incredibly knowledgeable, he always got straight back to me with any queries, he even helped me alter an existing design to perfectly suit my needs, there was also no issues updating the design to suit my new block once the old one fell through, and he was even able to help me find land within my budget.
Jessica Lunnon was my Pre-start Consultant.
- Jessica was incredible helping me to design my home, helping me with the incred...
A seamless process
Jen Our sales consultant has been a delight to work with so thorough and attentive to ensure we included everything for our dream home within our price range. We are very happy with our decision in such an uncertain time in the building market and know we are in safe hands with celebrations.
Very happy with Courtney
Very happy with my journey so far - slab now down. Courtney Haslam has kept me up to date via email, always helpful and reassuring to know she is there to help with any questions.
And thanks to Kevin for taking the photo of the slab going down and ensuring the job is done perfectly !
These little gestures mean so much - thank you
Phenomenal building team!
Settlement was Jan 22nd of 2021. Right in the middle of the housing boom, our house was handed over to us 8th Dec 2021. 11 months in total from settlement to hand over. With Na wide trade and product shortages.. none if which affected us! Nor did we get any of those nasty price hikes. These guys are top notch! Sean in Sales, Jenna in prestart and John as site super are legends in thier own right! Assets to the company!
Jason’s helpfulness and patience was unreal!
Jason from celebration homes has made the whole pre-start process easy to navigate and understand as well as always being available when we have had questions or queries. He was also willing to help in other aspects where he didn’t necessarily have to offer his help. Awesome customers service from him.
While shopping around for a builder I met Gavin Gonsalves from Celebration Homes at a display.
Very friendly and informed. I then met with Gavin a few more times, making adjustments to a plan to make it perfect for me. He went above and beyond to help me get my dream plan.
Even now, that I'm progressing to the style stage and with Christmas coming up Gavin checked in with me and let me know that if I need to contact about anything over the break (his holiday) he would be available to answer questions.
So far my experience with Celebration Homes has been 10/10.

The perfect start to our building journey
As a family we have just recently started our building journey. From the moment we saw the amazing quality of the show home we knew it would be perfect for us.
Then we met Gavin, the most wonderful, helpful sales representative, we could have wished for! Someone you knew you could trust and who moves mountains to do the best for us!
We are so excited to see our completed Celebration home!
