Thank you SJD Team

published

Sjd homes did a great job managing our build during the Covid period
Though it took longer than initially anticipated to start the job , the actual building process was smooth and very well managed by the friendly approachable Site Manager James who sent us photos and kept us posted and went above and beyond to allow access for inspections at convenient times when requested .
The initial plan was also modified by the Sales Consultant Doreen to suit our requirements for having a 4 bedroom home on a smaller block
The finer finishing details before the handover was done with minute attention to detail by Site Supervisor
Overall a seamless experience

Built our perfect house

Everything was an absolute dream from start to finish. From day one we had great help with choosing our house right the way through to pouring the slab and then all the way through to lock up and getting our keys. I will recommend Sjd to any body that asks. So very happy with our home

Our retirement home

published

Spent a lot of time looking at different Display homes, but we just kept coming back to the SJD Caversham Mk4, so after talking to Sue at the display village we were hooked. The home is everything my husband and I wanted for our retirement.
It was done without a worry in the world, even though our poor project manager had an accident . I’d like to thank Sue for her friendly and professionalism in setting the plans etc up. Scott for looking after the build, and SJD Homes for building such a lovely display home for me to copy. I highly recommend SJD Homes there basic inclusions, means not much up grading which saves in coat
Again thanks

Best house ever !

published

We recently purchased this SJD home and it is without doubt the best house we’ve lived in and we’ll be here forever. It’s such an easy house to live in, The Sandpiper is an excellent design and has numerous eco-friendly features such as rain-water tanks, solar panels, thermal mass internally to keep the house at a nice temperature. Lou from SJD Homes was an excellent consultant, nothing was a problem for him. The company owner, Simon, dropped by to make sure we were happy with everything. We have no hesitation in recommending SJD, very easy to deal with before and after our purchase. Very happy.

Home built to suit my family

published

SJD were great I can not speak highly enough about our site manager A1 service and fantastic to work with . We had a few miner hiccups through out our build due to miscommunication from sales but he was onto it straight away and made us feel very reassured and at ease & everything turned out perfectly very highly recommended site manager⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Workmanship was good just a few miner issues to be reviewed. Our final cost was spot on , no hidden extras. I would definitely recommend SJD but I would advise to talk to your site manager with all things discussed at sales . Thank you SJD we love our new home .

Service- Above and beyond

published

From the moment we walked into Philippa’s office back in 2018 to Scott’s handover of our home, the journey was a smooth sailing one.

Words can’t express how grateful we are for guiding to achieve our first home here in Australia. You guys are amazing at what you do.

SJD your reputation of excellence and amazing customer service for every step of the journey is above and beyond. Our family highly recommends you!

My First Home

published

At every step SJD made my experience of building my first home a smooth one (particularly considering the circumstances of the world during 2020).
Colette was happy to answer the many questions I had and was always so polite and understanding.
When the build commenced Brad my building supervisor shared the same excitement I had from the site cut to handing over the keys.
I would be happy to recommend anyone planning on building to go through SJD.

Amazing team at SJD

published

From when we walked in the door to the contract stage, the colour appointment and all through to our final build inspection we’ve had the best experience from SJD. Extremely friendly, attention to detail and just down to earth approach to real customer service. Amazing value for what you get in your inclusions and packages. They are very flexible with changes. We’ve built 3 times now and SJD are by far the best we’ve dealt with. Thank you for the amazing team at SJD. We can’t wait to move into our beautiful new home.

All around excellence - great builder and great company

published

Built a house in 2020 with SJD. Really impressive from start to finish. Megan in the design & contract stage was friendly, relaxed and knows her stuff. Scott kept us well informed, provided insight & options where required and was great to work with. And James was a delight in the wrap up stage.

All around SJD are a really impressive smaller builder in outer east Melbourne. Do yourself a favour and give them a go. You will find a personalised journey, with flexibility and friendliness you won't get elsewhere.

Excellent customer service

published

SJD homes are well designed and the inclusions are great. We were considering a few other builders but the distinctive difference is their customer service. Nathan at SJD makes the process a lot easier than it could have been. He helps you out where he can and responds to inquiries very soon. Thanks Nathan, we are looking forward to building our first home mid next year

Hi, just wondering whether the SJD will change the size of the building to our choice. I like one display house it's 33 squares fits lot size 16x32. But I have 16x28 lot. So want to know whether they can change the size. Thanks

You will be surprised at what they can do, and they’re pretty good with adjusting and customising to your needs. Our house was made a little bigger than off the plan. Good luck!

Kinz L.asked

Hi,
Im in WA. Do you guys only build house or also help with the purchase of land? I am a first home buyer, Wondering if I have to purchase the land separately and hire a builder to build my house or both can be done together by the builder? Also with the land, can I choose my own or does it have to be the ones offered by the builder? Also the whole interiors and material that goes into the house can be freely chosen by the client or need to stick to options offered by builder? I really don't like the modern Australian homes I come across everyday, I want my house to have more stones and woods included and less glasses and steels that makes the house cheap and unnatural and tacky. I am dreaming of a small two storey house. Thank you.

Hi Kinz, if you are looking to build in WA, I'm sorry, we cannot help you. We only build in the SE suburbs of Melbourne.

I don't know mate, but we had to, because we are close to their outer boundaries. Try Leigh Shoebridge from sales, he has a simple sheet that tells you exactly what the premiums are, if there's any at all...good luck

Yes SJD have metropolitan, region 1 and region 2 pricing, Corinella is Region1 (that’s where we built) I think Wonthaggi fell into Region 2.. I did play around on their website and the pricing with regions was on there in 2018 we then met with Leigh Shoebridge went over the plans, elevations, pricing etc. He is very thorough and patient. Our build went quite smoothly, not overly impressed with the plumber though (has attitude and won’t admit fault - little like Dan Andrews). Build completed inside of time frames & no price shock. Customer Service and site supervisor “great”.. all the best
