Great site supervisor made up for everything
Everyone tells you your build experience will be determined by the quality of, and your relationship with your site supervisor. In our case this proved to be true, and we are very grateful to the two fine gentlemen who served as our site supervisors. The sales team was also great.
Amazing service (Brinnand)
The first part of this process of building with coral homes was wonderful thanks to Haley Corrigan. I’ve valued her knowledge and expertise Coral are lucky to have her. The second faze has been extremely stressful. I have to thank the girls at Beaumont tiles Ballina for their support and assistance as the girl from coral homes did not attend the appointment did not phone or email to advise me that she wouldn’t be attending. I then had my colour appointment and wow a massive shout out to Narissa ODoherty interior designer how lucky was I to have...such a wonderful experienced designer to complete my dream home. Besides Narissas experience her approach care and understanding ( when I followed up with a number of emails) was so appreciated. I finally became excited again in building my home. Narissa made this experience so easy she took all the stress away when prior to the appointment I was feeling overwhelmed with everything I had to do. I feel blessed to of had such an incredible interior designer Thankyou Narissa I love my choices you helped put together
No nonsense build, highly recommended
From start to finish, the build process has been well managed and communicated. My concerns were always listened to and addressed. I was particularly impressed with my building supervisor who went out of her way to make sure I was happy. I would recommend to include allowances for tiling, electrical and colour selection included in the original quote. I could have used an extra $2000 above what was recommended for each. Ill be doing that for my next build, and use Coral again!
From the time we walked in to the display homes we knew we were going to build with Coral Homes. The service we received was exceptional. This is the first home we have built and we were nervous as I work away a lot and my wife had to do most of the work. The guys from the display home through to all the appointments was fantastic. The build process was awesome, [Name Removed] the supervisor did an awesome job. Always updating us on the progress. We have now moved in and enjoying our new Coral Home.

Smooth process & great outcome.
We have recently moved into our newly built, and first home and couldn’t be more happy. We would be lying to say there wasn’t some minor bumps along the way but these were just that… minor.. and this is to be expected in any build. We found the process daunting at the beginning, knowing nothing about the process but we received excellent service the whole way through. We were so lucky to have our Supervisor [Name Removed] who kept us updated along the whole way. We experienced some minor delays due to roof tiler and material delays but [Name Re...moved] kept a very open communication line on timelines. We felt that despite the delays, [Name Removed] worked hard to keep things on track as much as he could control and for that we are very grateful. From beginning to end we were so lucky / and grateful for the service we received for two young-ins who had no idea what we were doing! Our sales consultant [Name Removed] at Yarrabillba was incredible and very genuine which was what got us over the line with Coral in addition to the the pre-construction [Name Removed] who was an absolute gem. Strongly recommend :)
Build with Coral for a stress free building experience.
Would highly recommend building with Coral. My partner and I have just finished building our first ever home with Coral, and our experience has been absolutely second to none. Our build was excellently planned and managed. [Name Removed] our site supervisor always kept us in the loop with constant emails and prompt replies. His attention to detail made the final product absolutely astonishing. He was always open to every single query we had, and fixed any minor issues or concerns efficiently. We would definitely look at building with Coral for any future homes we build and would recommend to anyone looking at building their dream home.
Excellent experience building with Coral Homes
I am happy to write that Coral Homes did a wonderful job for me. The entire building process was very smooth and nice. All the contractors they engaged did a great job. They were flexible and were able to accomodate my last minute changes. Big thanks to the supervisor and all other workers involved. Surely I would recommend Coral homes to everyone. Thanks guys.
Attended my colour selections appointment and found it an extremely positive experience. My colour consultant, [Name Removed], was professional, helpful and easy to work with. I found the process seamless and the communication from coral homes was outstanding.
I would definitely recommend building with them to anyone.
Thank you coral homes, I look forward to the final product!
NEVER NEVER NEVER build with Coral Homes
First of all the salesman lied saying that they have a time line guarantee that if they don't meet the deadline they pay you $300 per week for any inconvenience.
The Site manager was gutless and very soft on the trades which results in a poor build in every aspect.
The end result was multiple issues during the build where instalment dates were rushed with incorrect framing and incomplete roof. The site manager was conducting a rebuild the night before handover due to bowed walls and ceilings.
The issues were many and varied from water tank bein...
Love the result, can be a frustrating process but it's worth it!
Our build was not without it's hiccups but thankfully nothing major. We started with the sales consultant [Name Removed] from North Harbour who was absolutely amazing to work with, he's a no gimmick honest and upfront person who actually gets back to you as well! Our SS (after Lee left) was [Name Removed] and my goodness I cannot put in to words how great he was to work with. [Name Removed] went above and beyond with everything, he is so personable and just a legend in general but he also takes pride in his work which can be hard to come across.... [Name Removed] handled everything so well and we are very grateful to him for getting our house done to the quality it is now. [Name Removed] did a few things that I would well and truly not expect to be within his job description and I don't think he complained once of anything, he just gets it done and gives you the best experience possible! Overall, [Names Removed] are really the only people worth mentioning who were outstanding, we had our share of delays with admin which dragged out over months, pricing seems fair, Coral are pretty flexible too and we choose to do a few things such as driveway, alfresco slab, internal flooring (aside from wet areas), and a few other little things ourselves post handover and that saved us quite a few thousand.

We had a wonderful experience with Coral
Our home build journey is not without issues but Coral has been very prompt in dealing with us. All people that we have came across with has become instrumental in achieving our dream house. The build is not perfect but we are so happy with it. The house is what we imagined it to be. [Name Removed] our site supervisor is the best ever. He is trustworthy and he made us feel that we are very well looked after. Since we have no idea how it is to build, he made us feel secured, all his actions are reassuring. We are so grateful to have him. We prayed hard for this build and it has been a blessing to have this house and met all these people in the process. Thank you Coral for making our dream come true.
Our site supervisor was a superstar
Great experience from start to end. There were small delays every now and then, although that's understandable given the state of the industry. The best part of the journey was dealing with the site supervisor [Name Removed] who is not only a great guy but also a really accommodating and knowledgeable professional.
Great home, good layout and value for money.
Coral Homes were great to work with for my first build. The plans they offered were well designed, they accommodated the changes to the floor plans for very reasonable variations to the price. With the designer and appliance upgrades the finish of the house looks above standard quality.
At each stage all the Coral Homes reps were great to work with and they worked with me to achieve my vision. The build process was effortless, the site supervisor [Name Removed] was always quick to return my emails, answer my calls and I felt he went above and ...
Our site supervisor was a superstar!!!
Our pre-site experience was stressful and unpleasant, with emails not being responded to in a timely manner, calls not being returned, etc. We never had this experience when we first built back in Darwin. But when we reached the build stage, we were allocated a site supervisor who was very responsive and helpful, never missed a single weekly update, and delivered a beautiful house within the contract period despite shortages in supplies and tradesmen. We are now living in our new home (Northern Gold Coast) and we haven't noticed any significant issues yet.
Callan Fing and Matt Jones was both very very good Site supervisor
the admin stage was a nightmare find out later lot of facts I believe should be told at the very beginning and chasing paper work from Beaumont and Clipsal which I was hoping coral admin will do better but probably to busy, once we move to building stage few delay but nothing major mainly due to weather and supply SS was on top of it Callan and Matt did a awesome job and rectify stuff we or our inspector didn’t saw, the quality of the as is outstanding.
Dealing with issue admin stage 1/10, building stage 10/10
Cost, spend little bit more than expected at our colour and Clipsal it will have been good that at our first contact with coral have told us on some of the cost to allow some budget for it at the start of the finance process
