Reviewing Sunstate Homes
Sunstate Homes were very strongly recommended by friends, who had built with them.
We were quite impressed with our friends homes and some of the reviews we read on the internet. When Amir Taefi showed us the design that suited our requirements and walked us through the entire process, we were convinced. The fact that we were directly dealing with the owners of the company and not with salespersons gave us a lot of confidence and comfort.
The process from design conceptualisation to completion was smooth and stress free. Their high professiona...l standard and superior customer service were evident throughout. They were very flexible with their time i.e. meeting us at short notice and accommodating our requests for changes along the way. We found them very approachable. We spoke to most of their tradesmen and they all claimed that there have been with the company for many years. Some since the company inception 20 or so years ago. Their experience and skill showed in every aspect of the home. Tradespeople we met on site were always polite and friendly. The Sunstate values were obviously instilled by the persons responsible for the actual building work. Amir and Leila on several occasions gave us practical and economical suggestions and were always available to address even the smallest of our concerns. We received valuable advice and guidance on the selection of various materials and colours from Jill whose level of understanding for colours and designs was incredible. Were there issues? Of course there was. However they were just a few and very minor. We would have been naive to expect no issues on such a major project. But whenever they arose, they were addressed efficiently and expeditiously.
Just wanted to acknowledge our thanks to Amir and the team at Sunstate Homes for such a smooth and painless project. We are truly grateful to the entire project team from the office staff to the tradesmen.
Our house is a shining example of what these guys can do. Having seen what they did for a family member we decided to put our faith in Amir and his team and they certainly didn't disappoint. Thank you Leila and Jill for your hard work and and your priceless advise and thanks to all the tradesmen who tiredlessly worked on our home to ensure we moved in as promised.
We strongly recommend Sunstate Homes to anyone who is contemplating to build a new home.
Very Happy. Excellent company
Sunstate Homes were recommended by a friend who had their house build by this company. We put our trust in our friend and built with Sunstate Homes. We recently moved into our home. We did have a slightly cheaper quote from a project builder but we had experience with similra building companies before and we were aware of the additional costs after you sign the contract.
We cannot fault Sunstate Homes for anything. They are professional and very caring organisation. We enjoyed the whole process of building without any incident of problem. Fro...m the management down to tradesmen they were friendly and obliging. We had the house checked out by a building inspector prior to handover and he said that it was the best quality finish that he had seen all year. One or two very minor issues were picked up that the builder rectified same afternoon that we got the keys. We highly recommend anyone who is after building a quality home without headache to speak to Sunstate Homes in Milton. They rock.
We recently built a new home with Sunstate Homes in Red Hill. Our new home is beautiful and the construction process was enjoyable for us. Amir is so knowledgeable and approachable, and his team are very good at what they do. We had a budget that we needed to keep within, and the Sunstate Homes team were able to come up with a design which ticked all our boxes and worked within our budget. Amazing. Would recommend Sunstate Homes to anyone looking to build in Brisbane
Excellent Building Company. Highly Recommended
It was a pleasure to build with Sunstate homes. We had a fantastic experience throughout the time we dealt with them. We had built previously with another larger builder and were quite happy with what they did for us. So when Sunstate Homes was introduced by one of our family members it was a difficult decision which builder to use. I called and spoke to the owner on the phone and as a result of my speaking to him we thought we give them a try and see how they compare with our previous builder. We thought we can always go back to our previous b...uilder if things don't work out straight away. Right from outset we felt very comfortable. The help we received to get our plan designed to our liking and budget was incredible. All without any pressure to pay deposits or make any commitments. So we were happy to continue with Sunstate. Our house was built without any problems and to a very high degree of quality. We had full communication from the owner of the company throughout. He was always available for a chat or to meet on site. The staff and tradesmen are also a delight to work with. Everyone was very helpful. We moved in a few weeks ago and are very please with the result. Proud to have a beautiful home. Just the landscaping to finish off now. We are extremely happy and glad that we decided to build with this builder. Highly recommended and more than happy to give further information if requested by anyone.
Wonderful builder with very high standards
A good friend of mine had built a house in 2014, and I was always fascinated by the quality, style and the finishes of the house. The home felt enchanted. Although my friend spoke very highly of the builder, he remained a mystery to me until I bought a block of land and decided to build a house.
I had always dreamt of building a house designed, drawn and (hopefully) perfected by me. Despite my career not being architecture, it had stayed by hobby for my entire life. In fact, despite my amateurism, I had helped friends in the past with the desi...gn of their homes. By the time the design phase of my new home was arriving, I had already visited many display homes in Brisbane, most of which were done by very popular builders. These houses looked gorgeous, but I had doubts about the practicality. I felt I was paying extra for features I either did not need or did not care for in a house. The name of my friend’s builder was on still on the table, especially after my friend’s high regard for this builder not diminishing in the slightest in the years since the project’s completion. In the process of buying the land in 2017, my friend introduced me to the builder. I wanted to get an opinion from the owner of this building company, Sunstate Homes, Amir. He spent a considerable amount of time at the land with me, explaining the pros and cons of the position of the land with regards to construction of the house. My mind was overloaded at the time with hundreds of questions and Amir, one by one answered all of them in detail during a number of meetings, patiently. I had very important basic request; the house had to be of my own plan, to which Amir happily agreed to. At no point during my interactions with Amir, did he pressure me into signing a contract. I had about 7 or 8 meetings with Amir, perfecting and fine tuning the plan at his office, each one of which took at least about 90 minutes out of his time. Once the plan had been finalised, we sealed the deal and signed the contract with Sunstate Homes in 2017 with plans for construction to begin in January 2018.
Excellent Building Company
I first met with the owner of Sunstate Homes in 2017 when we decided that we would like to build a home for my parents who were moving to Australia. After looking at several other builders in Brisbane we felt that we were going to have a better experience with Sunstate Homes. That proved to be correct.
My parents arrived in Australia just as the building was about to commence and we moved them into their new home in September 2018. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable. We spend very little extras to the standard inclusions and because ...we had a fixed price contract the cost was as we had budgeted and expected. We are so pleased with the home that they designed and built for us, that we are now looking to build our own home with them later this year. We would be very pleased to recommend Sunstate Homes to our friends, indeed anyone contemplating building a new home in Brisbane.
Sunstate Homes build a beautiful home for us in Kenmore. Our house was ready 2.5 weeks ahead of schedule and to a very high standard. My husband and I spend a tremendous amount of time trying to find the right builder and our efforts paid off eventually. We had no problems at all during the construction. We relied on the recommendations in this web site and did a lot of research about the background of the companies we looked at. Overall we felt that Sunstate Homes came up tops in most of our investigations.
All the staff we worked with at Sun...state Homes were extremely helpful and easy to deal with. We kept out of their way but they kept us updated with the progress regularly. They were very accommodating whenever we asked to view the house. Our line of communication was mainly with the owner itself. We would highly recommend Sunstate Homes to anyone trying to build a new house.
Excellent company to deal with
We haven't built with Sunstate Homes yet but we dealt with them for a very long time. They were fantastic. Very easy to deal with and extremely professional. Unfortunately the purchase of our block fell through so we couldn't go ahead with the build but we have already decided that we will definitely build with them as soon as we settle on the new block we have found. They spent hours and hours of time with us working on our plan and doing their pricing to suite our budget. Never once they asked for any money unlike some other sales people who ...ask for a deposit the first day you meet them. Very knowledgeable and honest company. But most importantly they make you feel very comfortable right from the first time you meet them. They were very clear about the costs and Amir gave us numerous hints on how to achieve what we wanted with minimum or no additional costs. We visited their product selection room and met their design lady Jill who spent a lot of times with us giving us helpful hints even before we had signed any contract with them. Her knowledge of colours and products were very impressive. We just signed a contract for a new block and will be going to see Amir next week to restart the process were we left. Hopefully our previous design that we worked on for almost 2 months will fit the new block. We highly recommend Sunstate Homes and look forward to starting the build process with them asap.
After months of being messed around by a large project builder, one of my husband's work colleagues suggested we try Sunstate Homes. We had a steep block and Metricon was suggesting some ridiculous plans that just did not fit our block. We wanted a split level that took advantage of the slope and the rear views. They wanted us to cut the block with 2.5 meter retaining walls so that they could fit their house on it. It was obvious they couldn't care less about what we really wanted.
We felt very comfortable right from the beginning with Sunst...ate. They advised us against leveling our block and instead showed us a couple of examples of homes they had built on sloping block. They looked like exactly what we wanted in the first place. They designed a new home for us based on their Como floor plan which eliminated all the retaining walls that was suggested by the other builder. The site cost was less than a third what the other builder was going to charge us. The build process was without any problems and we had regular communication with the owner. Our house was built to budget and 2 weeks ahead of schedule. The quality is first class and cannot be faulted. We will definitely use them again. Very highly recommended
Service beyond expectations
I saw a negative review on this web site and was surprised. Both myself and my friend built with Sunstate Homes and we have nothing but praise for this company. It is very hard to find any fault with either the product they built or the service during and after the construction.
My friend who was already building with Sunstate recommend them to us. They seem to be very happy so we decided to give them a try. The first meeting with the owner was amazing. His level of knowledge is incredible. We felt extremely comfortable right from the first...meeting. All his recommendations and suggestion were all common sense which you do not hear from sales staff in display home villages. That evening when myself and wife went home it felt like a great weight had been lifted form our shoulders. We decided there and then that we will build with Sunstate Homes. The construction of the home could not be smoother. The owner, Amir, was in contact with us regularly and responded to our queries immediately. Variation costs were very reasonable and there was no pressure on us to make any variations to the standard. The standard selection is of a very high quality and we had many choices to choose tiles, taps, bathroomware, fixtures, carpets, etc The house was handed over to us 19 days ahead of schedule. Walking into our beautiful home for the handover with a massive bunch of flowers on the benchtop is unforgettable. And now after almost 2 years it still looks as the first day we put in our furniture. We highly recommend Sunstate Homes for anyone who is contemplating to build a new home. They are unbeatable.
Friendly and professional
Sunstate is a very friendly company. They helped us with making a design for our home and built our house very quickly. Owner came to see us regularly and was very careful that our house was built with very high quality material. He always gave us useful advise. The lady who help us with the colour selection was very professional and did an excellent job. We have the best looking house in the street. My sister is now also building with Sunstate Homes and she is also very happy. I recommend Sunstate Homes very strongly. Especially the owner Amir is very helpful and knowledgeable and always available if we want to see him.
This is a very fantastic company to deal with. Great people and very professional. We had no problems before, during or after the construction. They finished our home on time and above our expectations. House was build to a very high standard of finish and with no fuss whatsoever. All staff were courteous and extremely helpful. Highly highly recommended. Thank you to Amir and all your staff
First class service from this company
We had no problems at all with Sunstate Homes. Our house was completed ahead of schedule and to a very high standard of finish. The staff from the owner to the tradesmen are extremely friendly and helpful. Amir Taefi (the owner of Sunstate Homes) was always available for a meeting and to provide advise. We always felt that his advise was honest and factual. It was very reassuring to be able to talk to the actual boss whenever we had any queries. His knowledge of the building techniques and details is very impressive. He even coordinated with ou...r Curtain People to manufacture and assisted in hanging our curtains. Unlike some other companies we dealt with we were never pressured to pay any deposit or sign a contract until we were ready. We made quite a few changes during construction and we were only charged a variation fee on a handful of occasions and those were quite fair as far as we were concerned. Overall a very pleasant experience. We like to thank Amir and his team for an excellent job and we highly recommend Sunstate Homes to anyone seeking to build a new home.
We did a lot of research on the internet to find our potential builder. A few years ago we built our first home with a local builder and it turned out a disaster so we were very cautious making a decision. We also went to some display homes and read some testimonials like the ones on this page. We had a short list of 3 builders including Metricon, GJ Gardner and Sunstate Homes. They all came highly recommended but our neighbour had their home build by Sunstate and had very good experience. We loved their home but it was a low set home and we w...anted two stories. Right from the outset we felt very comfortable with the company. We met the owner and he seemed to be hands on and very knowledgeable. Both my wife and I felt that we could trust him. There was no sales pressure at any time. We eventually signed the contract with them. The construction went smoothly and without any hiccups. The staff were very courteous and helpful and the owner was always available for a meeting. They went out of their way tom help us with things that was not in our contract. The owner was very helpful advising on landscaping and fencing and communicated with our landscaper. He also coordinated with our pool builder to ensure that the construction of the pool went smoothly. Our previous builder wouldn’t even allow us on site to measure the fence let alone helping us with the work. Their work is first class and the service is faultless. We are very happy with our choice and would highly recommend them to anyone. We have already offered to allow the builder to use our home as a show house. We are grateful to Amir and his staff for a fantastic job.
Reliable and very professional builder -high level of service
We decided to build our home with Sunstate Homes as the company was recommended to us by some friends of ours who had built with them before. We were impressed by the quality of their workmanship.
As we were first home builders and we were not familiar with the building process we really had lots and lots of queries. From the very beginning all the questions sent via email,sms or phone were answered promptly. They helped us with the house plan customising one of their set floorplans to accomodate our requests. They really showed a great deal ...
We built our home with Sunstate Homes and we are also very happy with their service and quality. Very helpful people from the owner to the tradesmen. The all took time to spend as much time as we needed to make us feel comfortable. The quality of our home is first class which it is clearly visible when you walk into our home. House was finished almost 7 weeks ahead of schedule. They were slightly more expensive than some of the project builders but we probably saved the extra cost during construction and finishing ahead of schedule. But most importantly we enjoyed seeing our home being built without any drama or hassle. We would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a quality build and hassle free building process.
Best builders ever
This is a really good company to deal with. We read many reviews of builders on this site about a year ago before we decided to go with Sunstate Homes and we are so glad that we did so. We had just recently moved to Brisbane from UK and didn't know any builders so we went by recommendation from this web site. We couldn't have picked a better people to deal with. Right from the start when you start dealing with them you get a really comfortable feeling. And this goes through the entire construction phase. They are approachable, helpful and reall...y honest with their advise and dealings. Our friends who also built at the same time as us but with a different builder was amazed that we didn't have to pay the huge fees that they had to pay when they added things during the construction. And the quality of our home is far superior to theirs. All their staff including the owner [name removed] were always available and willing to go out of their way to meet us at any time to discuss issues ad answer questions. They even coordinated work that had nothing to do with them (pool, etc) and all at no cost to us. They are really nice and I really recommend anyone who is looking for an easy and trouble free build to consider Sunstate Homes. We are very happy with our lovely home.
Words are not enough to thank Sunstate Homes
I was trying to write a testimonial for Sunstate Homes for all the good work done by the Builder and unfortunately I couldn't find enough words to say THANK YOU.
We started looking for a builder to build our dream home and met with over dozens of Builders including “Large” Builders.
Since this was our 1st home, we did not possess any knowledge of house construction process and our key selection criteria’s was
Being able to trust the Builder
Builder who understand our life style and expectations
Builder who can build our home withi...
Good honest builder
We built with Sunstate last year and didn't have any problems at all. We actually really enjoyed the experience. The quality of our home is excellent and they were really nice to us during the build period. We chose the fixed price contract and they managed to keep us within our budget. We did ask for a few extra things and made a couple of changes but they did not charge us any extra fee for making the changes. Just the cost of the extras which were pretty reasonable. I understood that they could have also charged $300 for every change but the...y forgave them all. I suppose you get what you pay for. Bigger builders might have been cheaper at the beginning but we would have paid for it during the construction. We found Sunstate Homes a very honest company. Over all we were very happy and would recommend them to anyone who wants a hassle free build. Their service, honesty and quality Can't think of anything major
