Exceptional service!

published

These guys have gone the extra mile to help us start our duplex build.
We had multiple false starts due to some large life events and yet they have been patient and supportive with all of our needs. Looking forward to completing this project with these guys at our side! Thanks Adam, Alex and Jodie!

Great local builder

published

We originally didn’t expect to build, but explored builders in the local area and found Hotondo homes, thankfully!
The build was great and surprisingly not as stressful as we thought.
Staff kept us informed every step of the way, especially for each change and also the progress.
Any issues we had were handled with great communication, and were fixed in a timely fashion. It was a big advantage that the team and contractors were local, as any adjustments along the way could be processed straight away!
Our final cost was a little over budget, due to our own added adjustments, but the team ensured we could modify the plans to suit us and our budget in every way.
With the help of everyone involved it looks amazing! Thank you!

Thank you from Mick & Tara

published

One thing that never gets old is the overwhelming compliments of the finish product of our stunning new Hotondo Home. Being a complex build but asking for a high attention to detail at the same time and the end result was better then expected. Being a contractor for Hotondo Homes and given the opportunity to build this amazing home and have such and input from the start to the finish was absolutely satisfying. From the girl in the office to the blokes on the site, we would like to thank you all for making our forever home better then we could ever imagine.

Thank you from Mick & Tara

We adore out beautiful Hotondo Home

published

The entire experience of building with Jeff and Fiona was wonderful! They catered to our needs and wants in the design and construction of our forever home. Any follow ups have been dealt with promptly and professionally with no fuss or stress. Both Simon and myself would recommend them enthusiastically to anyone thinking of building now or in the future.

Love our house is perfect, builders were amazing to deal with and quality is really good.

published

Build was managed perfect, we were informed off everything that was going on weekly! Quality of the our home is perfect. We had a few little problems with getting permits and what not but they were all handled great. Pretty much perfect there were a few extra costs due to us upgrading a few things. All in all we are wrapped.

Finding the right builder to build your home is about trust and once we met the team at Hotondo Homes we knew we were in safe hands. We are so happy with our new home and the care/attention to detail they showed. Would definitely use them again in the future!

They built our dream home, on time and with no fuss!!

published

Our build was well managed and done in the time frame we were told. We have been very happy with the workmanship and quality of our build. Any issues that we have raised post build have been fixed with a minimum of fuss. We had minimal additional costs during the build. The only down side I would say would be their communication towards the end of the build and the hand over process.

Duplexes built with ease

published

We have just finished building our Duplexes with Hotondo. From the start to the finish it was an easy process. We had no problems at all. Every staff member we encountered was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with nothing being too much trouble. Thanks for a great build and a fantastic job.

Can't fault the builder!

published

Exceptionally well managed build. Every contact was responded to immediately, to our satisfaction. Building completed on time, in spite of unexpected delays. Adam and Jess allowed for our personal choices and were a pleasure to deal with plus coming in on budget. In fact, if you're looking for a top quality builder, who you can trust, for the right price, I wouldn't look further than Adam Cheney!

Perfection ***** 11/10 Smiling every day when I wake up and when I get back home. THE BEST!

published

From pre-build to hand over I was not only looked after and consulted but also kept up to date on all aspects of the build.
The whole team from Hotondo Homes Nowra in-house staff to Hotondo's sub-contractors were friendly and professional
My build was not a standard design and made me feel like I had a private contractor with the support I received.
I have built 5 houses before my Hotondo and it is by far the pick of them all!

The perfect investment

published

A big thanks to Hotondo for delivering my duplex on the South Coast.
There was plenty of challenging factors at play but Daniel and Adam worked together to finish an outstanding investment for me.
I managed to sell one before the OC was even issued and the other side has a very happy tenant. The property is neutrally geared and now sits there and grows a nest egg. Thank you to the whole team

Amazing! From start to finished home.

We have been more than happy with the whole build. From our first meeting with Jodie, looking at the many options with Adam and of course our building Manager Daniel. It was a smooth process, professional. They were always open with costs, there were no hidden costs at the end.

VIC

Once deposit is paid how long till contracts are ready for the banks?

Colin P

In my experience Hotondo contracts were ready straight away and we had to wait for bank! Our build was complete from deposit to move in ahead of the twelve month time frame they gave us

Philip Roberts
Philip Roberts

Once all the colours and finishes etc are finalised the Contracts are ready for signing quite quickly.
Once signed they can go to the bank.

Hotondo Homes
Hugo B.Hotondo Homes

Hi Andrew,
This can vary depending on each situation as a lot of factors can contribute to contracts being finalised including land being titled, colour selections etc. It's best to speak directly to your builder about time frames as they'll have the background knowledge on where everything is at.
Hope that helps.
Thanks - Rose

Hugo B.Hotondo Homes

Hi Umesh,
You can find our standard inclusions by visiting www.hotondo.com.au. We have three ranges of home designs which each have their own set of standard inclusions - Forever Retreat, Forever Sanctuary and Forever Oasis. Our builders also offer flexible floor plans meaning they can work with your to tailor our designs in order to suit your needs. Hope that helps.
Thanks,
Rose

VIC, South Morang

Hi
I have a sloping land in Doreen, just wondering if you have any suitable home designs or do you undertake split level construction.

1 answer
Hotondo Homes
Hugo B.Hotondo Homes

Hi kk a,
We definitely do undertake split level construction and have a range of home designs to suit sloping blocks depending on the fall of the land. We can also tailor our standard home designs to suit sloping blocks but again this will depend on the fall of the block. You can take a look at our split level home designs here https://hotondo.com.au/new-home-designs/?split=1 but it is best to discuss your options directly with the South Morang team who is the local builder for the area. The team would be happy to come out and visit the site to give you a better understanding of how it may work. You can find all the information about the South Morang team by visiting https://hotondo.com.au/home-builders/south-morang/.
Hope that helps!
Thanks - Rose
