I would highly recommend Frank and his team at Hotondo Homes Corowa. From the very first contact until the end was a very easy process. The workmanship and quality of the build is of the highest quality.
Dave the building supervisor was also very good to work with. Thank you to everyone at Hotondo Corowa. We would definitely build with them again.

Amazing experience

published

From the moment we walked into the display home we had an amazing experience. Vicki helped us pick out our dream home to fit our odd shaped block. It was no hassle at all to make changes to the plans. Picking out our colours, bricks, flooring and more was made very easy with Ashlee in their showroom. We were kept up to date at every stage, with weekly updates on the app and inspections with Sam when we liked. Our build was completed 1 month ahead of schedule and the final price was exactly what we were quoted before building even started. We would like to thank everyone from Hotondo Homes Launceston for our excellent building experience and our new dream home.

Excellent service, we love our new house!

published

From the start the whole team at Hotondo Launceston were excellent to deal with. They had good advice and knowledge when making changes to the floor plan during design stage. Selecting our fixtures, fittings and colours was made easy in their showroom. Once the build was underway it all went quickly and smoothly with just one supply issue being resolved easily. We are so happy with the quality of workmanship and there were very few defects to note at our pre-handover inspection. We love our new house and are so glad we chose Hotondo Launceston. Would highly recommend the team for both their service and quality of workmanship, they made the process of building a house easy.

published

Every day when i walk through the door of my new home i feel like I'm living in a palace. Hotondo Inverloch did such a beautiful job on my home. The whole process was so easy. I received updates every step of the way. I had no issues with anything during the build. There were no blown out costs or delays and quality and workmanship is beyond superb. I love love my new home.

5 stars for Hotondo Homes Mackay

published

Fantastic team in Mackay. This was our first time building, and the Mackay team were so friendly, approachable and patient in guiding us through the process. They were very organised in a time when there was much strain in the building industry, with supply and labour shortages, and they delivered! We are so delighted with our home, and we know they went the extra mile - from the beautiful stone pillars out the front to the intricate tiling in the bathrooms and everything in between - it is quality all over. To anyone considering building in Mackay, we would recommend Hotondo Homes for their quality and professionalism.

Hotondo - Best Team

published

The entire Hotondo team were fantastic from the first stages of choosing our design and making changes to suit our block but Alex in particular couldn’t have been more helpful.
Kayla, Grace, Rachel & Stefanie were always on hand and replied promptly to my emails and numerous questions.
James, our site Manager, was a marvel as building during the pandemic was quite a challenge, not to mention the amount of rain we had.
Adam, the Director, is a really genuine guy and very approachable. Hotondo have delivered a quality home at an excellent price which we are very happy with. Highly recommend building with them.

Terrific outcome

published

I am very pleased with the quality of my home handed over in March 2022 and the service/support i received throughout the build and after occupancy.
Luke is a brilliant Project Manager; he is hands on and very accessible and I always felt he was looking after my interests.
Alex and David were so flexible in the design phase and Rachel's advice and guidance during 'colours' was exceptional.
Grace drove the project through the DA period and has handled the utility issues adeptly.
Principal Adam was always available and in partnership with Luke have managed the post occupancy issues and I have certainly been looked after.
Thanks to Hotondo South Coast for a great home.

ACT Narrabundah

published

We invested a lot of time reviewing and researching a builder for our project. We came across Katina and Bruce from Hotondo ACT. The team tailored the build to our specifications and provided us with guidance and suggestions along the way. Our engagement with Bruce, Katina and the team was outstanding, informative, helpful and insightful. We could not believe the end result, a beautiful quality home that we are very proud of. Nothing too big or too small for Katina and Bruce and they went out of their way to make this experience a smooth and easy process. We highly recommend working with Hotondo ACT for your dream home!

Well-built

published

House was built well and our desired modifications were explained and incorporated. Eg the walk in pantry. Process from inquiry to contract to build was well done. Choices for colours, flooring, fittings, lighting were explained fully. They worked hard to work around delays caused by covid and rain. Minor maintenance issues only post-construction.

Our perfect dream house!

From start to finish the Hotondo Mackay Team have been great!
The quality craftsmanship and communication throughout the whole build is awesome!!
We were easily able to modify our plans, choose upgrades and go in with our own ideas that they made a reality. No request was too hard for them.
We love our dream home and would highly recommend Anthony & Lynelle to anyone looking to build a new home!
