You won’t be getting what you’ve seen at a display home from them.
Build a new home with them.
Never again what a chaos and we are not happy.
Display homes are beautiful, don’t expect to get what you see and think you’ll be buying that.
Contract states: owner shall not instruct or guide contractors from builder.
Several trades people been contacting us directly because they were given my number by the site manager because they couldn’t figure out what was happening.
Damages during build were not replaced but fixed, so why is the builder insured during a build?
Master bedroom window got damaged during install and is now fixed but dents and scratches still visible, spacers used to keep the awning window in position....
Matt was great SJD have been awesome throughout the build and after on follow ups. Highly recommend
Everything was great. From customer service to quality of build to follow ups.
Always easy to get hold of. Final cost was accurate. We are very happy with the new house. Really bloody looking forward to our next build Go the Bombers

So happy with our new home!
We are so happy with the finished product! The attention to detail and finish is excellent! Very helpful team who were there right throughout the process. Our Supervisor was awesome and kept us up to date throughout the whole process. We are so happy with our new home. This was our second home with SJD and we would happily build with them again! Great experience.
Very Happy Customer
Very very happy with the build process. I built a modified Paterson very happy with the layout. Matt was my build supervisor he was very professional, kept me up to date with the build and explaining what the next process will be, helped with changes throughout the build and easy to contact. The girls in the office where excellent also. The quality of workmanship is very good, I would build with SJD homes again in a heart beat
Support throughout the entire process...
Received my keys a few days ago, and am so excited to move in! I have been well supported by SJD throughout the entire process, from picking the floor plan and adding features to make the house my own, through to construction. Very happy with the work of my site manager, Matt, keeping in regular communication with updates as well as delays or changes that effected my build during lockdown. Matt was very helpful, always taking the time to answer my queries along the way.
Now I have my keys, I still feel supported by SJD, that any questions will ...
Our beautiful new SJD home
Our recent build with SJD is one that I feel positive and happy about! If someone asked us what we thought of our build, I would smile and I’d only have positive words, as from start to finish the team were helpful, kind, supportive, honest and the build felt smooth (even with the lockdowns and supply shortages).
Our site supervisor Kim was hands down one of our favorite people to deal with - Nothing was ever a silly question, I was always reassured and things were always explained to me (even if I didn’t know all the building terms and lingo)....
SJD Second to none
SJD - the best on the market.
We went through so many builders and display homes that were so tiring and very confusing and then we came across SJD.
We met Kevin Pearson at one of the SJD displays and it was instantly clear to us that SJD was the one.
Kevin’s patience is second to none. His industry knowledge is invaluable. His help in developing our custom design house was outstanding. Kevin is a great listener and we always received genuine feedback. We appreciated that he spoke his mind and wasn't just telling us what he thought we wanted to...
The best experience building our first home!
From the moment we stepped into the Caversham display, we knew that this was the home we wanted to build, and the whole team at SJD Homes made the process so much easier.
From the administration side of things, Rosie was absolutely amazing! She kept in contact and updated us as much as possible.
Building a home in the midst of a pandemic was never going to be easy, but our supervisor Matt made it as easy as possible! And again, was absolutely amazing to deal with, communication was excellent and we couldn’t be any happier with the quality of our new home.
10/10 would recommend SJD Homes any day of the week!
Above and beyond!
The whole build process was a breeze, our build consultant Nathan designed exactly what we wanted.
Our site supervisor Matt, was amazing!
Matt definitely has an eye for detail.
As we built during lockdowns and unable to travel, Matt kept us in the loop of everything. Sending updates once a week, including photos.
We are extremely pleased with our new home and would highly recommend SJD HOMES. There attention to detail is amazing!
Fantastic from start to finish!
We have just received our keys for our new home and we couldn't be happier!
We were initially hesitant to build to build, worrying about the stress of the whole process but SJD has proved there was nothing to worry about.
From our initial meetings with sales consultants Rosie and Kev, they were more than happy to meet all our of our needs and change our plans accordingly.
Leah in our color selections was great with so much advise and super helpful afterwards with helping update selections.
Matt our site supervisor was 10/10, we can't thank him ...
So pleased we chose SJD to build our new forever home
This is the first home that we have had built in Australia, but have built previously in the UK. So pleased that we chose SJD homes to build our new house. Very impressed with all aspects of the build. the attention to detail by the trades has been great. Very pleased with the quality of finish throughout.
Our site was cut at the beginning of June 2021 and were handed the keys yesterday 16th December 2021. Less than 7 months for the build and in the midst of a pandemic, with all of its associated restrictions. SJD has done an a great job, rig...
Absolute cracking build
Build was dealt with and managed well and professional happy with service by my supervisor and Sjd all together.
Build was dealt with smoothly and having the background in construction was happy with my experience. I would recommend SJD homes to all people willing to take the step and build their first home
Excellent service and quality build from start to finish!
SJD have been fantastic at helping me achieve my dream of building my own home. From Kathryn, in the beginning guiding and advising me on building design that best suited my block, plus practical suggestions for inside design, to Kim, my site manager. Kim was always approachable and accommodating of any requests and questions I had. He took so much pride in ensuring the build was to the highest quality. I honestly haven't had to worry about a thing and have ended up with a beautiful home that I love! I can't thank them all enough!
Loving our new home.
The building process was extremely well managed by James. We were kept up to date with the whole process via email and photos as well as regular site inspections. James was very fastidious in making sure that everything was completed to a high standard. If we had any questions they were answered promptly and any changes were dealt with in an efficient manner. We are very happy with the quality of the build and any areas that were of concern have either been rectified or should be in the near future. The cost of the build was as quoted and any extras expenses were of our choosing. We would be happy to recommend SJD and have already told anyone who asks how happy we are with the house.
