Quality First Home

published

We would like to thank Jeff, Fiona and the team for building our dream home, we could not be happier. Being our first time building we had no idea how much was involved in building a house. Luckily they made the process as simple as possible and from Start to Finish could not fault their workmanship. We would not hesitate in recommending Hotondo homes to anyone wanting to build a quality home.

I'm delighted with my new home.

published

I have recently moved into my new Hotondo Home in Ararat. The project was very well managed from the initial discussions through to completion. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, dealt with any issues quickly and efficiently and I found their colour consultant most helpful. The quality of the workmanship is excellent and importantly to me, local tradesmen were employed. Thanks to Russell & Jenny Pearse and their team at Hotondo Homes in Ararat for a job well done and I would certainly recommend them as the builders for your new home.

Love my new home

published

Thanks Hotondo Warragul!
I absolutely love my Hotondo home so much. The workmanship and quality finish’s are amazing and exceeded my expectations by far right from start to finish and the service they offer after moving in as well. They assured us that if we had any issues they were there to help and resolve it! This is what makes Hotondo Warragul worth it in the end.. Thanks for being patient with us especially with any adjustments and the one million questions we threw at you sorry Jeff!! :) but thank you for getting our home completed before Christmas it meant the world to us. I would most definitely build with Hotondo again.

Hotondo wallan great to deal with. The fellas went the extra mile. Always happy to fix/ amend any issues.

published

The build was managed very well. Great conversation and communication levels.
Trades have left a little to be desired but all issues have been dealt with by great staff at Hotondo.
The final cost of the build was well within our budget and there was no hidden surprises at the end of the day.

Practically perfect in every way!

published

After a terrible customer service experience with a different builder and losing my deposit, I can honestly say that I wouldn't be in my new home if it wasn't for Brett and the team at Hotondo Homes, Ballarat.
Brett worked wonders to meet my concerns, budget, and specifications, yet he maintained all inclusions, and upon moving in I couldn't be happier! Other than two small hiccups - site supervisor changed half-way through, and build time went one week over - the end result is a high-quality (and overly customised) build for a sensational price. We moved in just before Christmas, which ensured the perfect end to 2019!
Hotondo might not ever want to deal with me again, as I'm super OCD, but I'd definitely build with them every time.

Down to earth, very helpful and easy to deal with!

published

The team at Hotondo have been extremely helpful in the pre-construction process. Not at all pushy which is a massive plus. Have chipped in with ideas and helped work through any obstacles due to our irregular shaped block. Happy to tell us how it is rather than give excuses or do the usual sales pitch. A very personable experience so far.

Hotondo Warragul 10/10

published

Hotondo Warragul completed our custom build in March 2018. Jeff is a second generation builder, his father Gus was well respected in West Gippsland, and jeff has continued that legacy. The build was managed on time and at a competitive price. Jeff and Fiona a great team. Tradies working on the job gave great attention to detail and workmanship was first class.

Great experience once again.

published

Its the second time we have built with Build2grow, and once again they delivered more than what was expected. They went above and beyond and all questions and concerns were quickly rectified. We had an amazing time building with Michael and we would highly recommend his quality workmanship and attention to detail.
We will not hesitate in using Michael and his team in future builds.

Building made easy

published

From the start to the finish they have delivered a great product. They stood by there word and nothing was to hard for them. From when I walked in the door with a floor plan to the completed product they have keep us well informed. Even when other builders would not quote the job. Great to deal with and would build again with this team of great people.Thanks to the whole team.

The whole process from start to finish ran smoothly. I was informed regularly at all stages of the build. The team at Hotondo were terrific. I couldn't be more satisfied with there work and guidance throughout the build. If your looking for your dream home Wayne and Keegan Marc can make it a reality.

Andrew M.asked

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

3 answers
Colin P
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

kk a.asked

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
