Wouldn't build with anyone else
Well let's just start by saying we couldn"t be happier with our home built by Coral Homes. We built in North Brisbane. We had the most amazing sales consultant Hannah from the Coomera display who was so helpful, prompt and trustworthy. We found upgrades to be extremely affordable to achieve the display home look. Our build has shocked us by not having one single problem or issue. We were expecting the process to be painful like it was for us with a different builder previously. Luke our Site Supervisor exceeded our expectations every time and...the quality of our build is outstanding. We haven't had any issues or mistakes every stage has been executed perfectly. Couldn't be happier with Coral and our home and we would build with Coral again.
Best Site Supervisor ever!
Throughout the process of our build from start to finish, my husband and I have been blown away with the consistent support, advice and overall excellence of Coral Homes and our Site Supervisor, Matthew Jones-Power.
As first home buyers, we needed all the guidance we could get and Matt was no shorter than amazing! He kept us up to date every single week, answered our phone calls and emailed us back almost instantly in regards to our questions.
I am quite the stress head, especially when it came to building our dream home. Although, Matt made t...
Love Love Our Home
From the day we walked into the Display Home in Hervey Bay until the day of handover we were happy we had chosen to build with Coral Homes.
The Sales team were excellent, got our final contract completed in a speedy fashion and they were there for support from start to finish.
Administration was a bit slower but the communication was fantastic and thorough.
Then we got down to the building process… what an exciting time it was. Started off with flying colours and it was full steam ahead. Had a bit of a slow pace at one point due to suppliers bu...
Our very first home
Let me just start this by stating this was the first home we have ever built and our very first home.
We went into this knowing very little about the whole process. We did our due diligence and all of the research we could. We were looking at other builders that had plans we liked, but after visiting their showrooms and being given a cold shoulder.
We then walked into the coral homes display in Ripley, QLD. We spoke to the sales consultant [Name Removed] who went above and beyond answering all of our questions. We scheduled a time to do a wa...lkthrough of the display home and get a quote for our floor plan (San Marino 27). That afternoon we had two quotes (standard and elegance package). That experience alone cemented Coral Homes as the builder for us. From there we had ups and downs with land, eventually settling on the perfect block for us (3025sqm). We were progressing through our admin stage, did our electrical consultation online (covid) which was really easy!
Colour selection process
Our interior designer was so professional and made our pre selection process so much fun! She was so suggestive and helpful with all aspects of the home and guided us through the whole process seamlessly. My partner and I were so happy with the final colours and finishes after our appointment. We would highly recommend Rita and Coral Homes to any of our friends and family so far.
Excellent customer service
We have just received our site start date. Right up until now it has been smooth sailing with extremely helpful Coral staff and associated companies. But we would especially like to thank [Name Removed] our customer relationship coordinator who went above and beyond to keep us informed of our progress with our needs in mind. So thank you again [Name Removed] and even with some laughs along the way.
A huge thanks to [Name Removed], she was very professional and made our colour selections a breeze! We honestly couldn’t recommend her enough. Her knowledge and experience is beyond amazing. Thank you for helping us create our first home we couldn’t have done such a beautiful design without you. We are forever grateful for having you on this journey.
It was a pleasure working with Coral homes
First of all I would like to thank Coral homes for making our dreams of owning a house come true. There some few problems with communication. Pre build and during the build, however, our project manager was able explain whenever he gets opportunity. Although there were some delays here and there, we are happy with the build.
For the post build, we have found some bits and pieces that needs to fixed , some has been fixed and some are yet to.
Extremely Happy and Thankful we Chose Coral Homes.
The process of Building with Coral was easy, professional and timely. Communication was exemplary, bad news didnt exist and promises, even in this extraordinarily difficult time, were adhered too. This was one very pleasant experience on a "now" gorgeous Home that could very easily have been a nightmare, instead a DREAM. Thank you Luke and the rest of the people from Coral Homes. Integrity in personal Character and Integrity in the Build.
Finally inspection time!!
After a long year of bad weather and supplies shortages I can finally see a beautiful home. With the excitement of attending the 1st inspection I must say I was over the moon. Brad went above my expectations with explaining and informing me with the last touch ups required. Thank you Coral Homes
Very BAD Experience with Warranty
I Made a Complaint about leakage from Roof almost 6 Months ago, depiste sending anyone from Inspection, we were advised to contact Insurance company. This all happened during flooding and storms. I repeatedly requested for inspecting the property, but in vain. We approached the Insurance company, Insurance company organized the Inspection and they found many faults while building our home and sent us 4-5 pages report with Photos of faults as stated, INHERENT DEFECTS, STRUCTURAL FAULTS, FAULTY WORKMANSHIP OR FAULTY DESIGN.
No one was apppointed...to check on that even after a month of my email with report. No one has responded to my Phone calls call back even after 3 days after 2 calls made to them. Please Consider before signing contract with them.
Couldn't be happier with the result!
A huge thanks to Coral Homes, especially Hannah Edwards and Michael Cordery for their help and dedication through such a significant event in our lives. We could rest easy knowing that they treated our build as if it was their own. We were always kept informed, and they went above and beyond to help us get the best value for our money. Any issues we had were promptly rectified, with no stress put on us. The build was so affordable as were the extras and we had control over our decisions all the way through. Coral Homes were great to deal with, would build with them again!
11th build 1st with Coral homes
I would like to thank Coral homes for building such a beautiful house in a timely manner, considering the building industry problems their having at the moment.
Our SS has made this experience really easy for us, due to his commitment, friendliness and promptness.
We’re building a large single story and the quality of the build is fantastic.
They make you feel hopeless and no one deserve this.
Please Do Not use this builder 400+ day in making. They are rude they thinking you can't do anything to them and they are right. You can't do anything to them. They bind them with lots of contract you are one person and they know that. They truly evil. your putting all saving hard earn money, they promise you they will be great until you sing the contract and then they don't give dam about it. They look at you and smirk smile in their face don't even listen to what you say. Please do not put thru yourself what my family go thru.They don't care ...how much you lose you sacrifice your dream about your house. They stole your dreams now I'm not even happy to be have a house after that much suffering I don't even feel like a I have home. Please please do not do this to yourself, with your own money. Nothing is right with brand new house and they don't care. They make you feel hopeless and stress for 2 years.
Thought after care was a good thing. But no
We thought we had 12 months to see what else needs to be fixed under the warranty process. So we waited until then to address a flooring issue. To be told that it should’ve been picked up in the final inspection.
When other things were fixed on the house after the final inspection that weren’t on the list.
The vinyl planking in my wet bar area have clearly been cleaned because of a glue problem and has left round buffered marks.
To be told that we had moved furniture to create the problem.
The carpet call guys came out...
Questions & Answers
How long is your building period as my contract is 458 days, seems so long . My starting date is Feb 2023 but my land will be registered as early as April 2022. It seems ridiculous
Can someone provide me with customer service manager or even someone responsible staff????? Where we can share our problems??
Write to the CEO. Google who it is. Head office is in Varsity Lakes Qld

How long you need to wait for building ? If I sign contract now, I need to wait till Feb of 2023 and the building period can be up to 458 days. They never told me but asked me to pay deposi...
I signed the contract in March-my land was registered and loan was approved-still they couldn’t start our house on time -our start date was 29th sep, then we hit by 15k-yeah they should change the wor...ds on contract which they call Fixed price contract. We can understand Covid situation-but they should not sign so many contracts if they were not able to complete their projects.coral is big company they must know that what’s their capacity to complete the project. Asked the questions whatever In your mind-read the contract properly.don’t believe any verbal conversation.we trust them blindly as their feedback was so good till last year.I have not heard any complaints but these days….
Thanks Sehar, I paid the 3000 deposit in November 2021 then signed contract and paid 5 percent deposit in January 2022 to lock the price. It seems a bit fast. My friend who asked Brighton to build ca...n only pay 3000 and lock the price. Now my land registration will be delayed and probably the contract will expire. Don't know if the 5 percent will taken completely.
