It was the best experience. Had ample choices and delivered. Everyone was excellent and always kept me updated. Kane was my supervisor and he is the best. He answered all my questions and always responded to my queries. Thank you Kane and the team for this wonderful experience. Thank you
A big thank you to the team at Thrive Homes, specifically Alana, John and Tom. They all helped us through the entire construction process from start to finish and made everything very simple and clear. We appreciate everything Thrive have done for us to make our first home a smooth and easy experience.
Stress free build
Thanks to our supervisor Colin for making our first home build experience essentially seamless..We thought it would be so tenious but Thrive had a very comprehensive and systematic process in place that made us feel well taken cared of.. I would highly recommend Thrive Homes.. Thank you for the stress free build
Quality Experience with Thrive
My job was managed by site supervisor Josh Signoretti. Throughout the build Josh was always professional and kept me in the loop with where we were up to. As a first home builder I often had a lot of questions and he was more than happy to explain and go the extra mile to help me sort out any issues that arose. Post construction he has helped me sort through any minor issues that have arisen with the home and has been readily available to support me with the transition. I cannot recommend him enough for his professionalism, knowledge, and readi...ness to help. I am so impressed with his site management and my experience with Thrive in general. If you are a first home builder I would highly recommend this company for their outstanding staff, quality and professionalism.

Unfair practices and unclear terms,
I signed up with Thrive homes to buy my first home in Marsden park. I explained to them that I am a foreign buyer and will need approval from FIRB and bank while signing the documents and the selling agent confirmed that the contract would be conditional to FIRB and bank loan approval . I was not successful to obtain the FIRB approval and bank loan approval. I was charged 3000$ as initial deposit and now they are not refunding it. Be aware about their terms and conditions and traps.

Amazing work, Thank you Thrive homes
We signed the building contract with thrive homes, when we purchased the land that was in 2018. Construction of our double story house started in August 2020, almost after 2 years from the date of contract exchanged and signed. This was due to delay in settlement of land. Glad that thrive homes didn’t increase the construction cost even though it was over the time limit as per contract. Miss Alana from admin team was very helpful throughout the process. She was very informative in explaining the whole construction process plus always quick in r...eplying to query. Our site supervisor Mr. Josh was excellent. He was very professional in his work and his commitment towards the project. He was regularly updating us biweekly on construction progress. He was very helpful and easy to approach at anytime. Very satisfied with the standards and quality work by thrive homes. We got handover in March 2021. So it was finished in time. It was a great journey. Glad we choose thrive homes for our first home. You guys did a fantastic job. Thank you and best wishes to thrive homes team for their future projects.
Thank you, Thrive Homes!
We are extremely satisfied with the quality of the house Thrive built for us.
Kane, our site supervisor, exceeded our expectations. He was able to finish the build 2 months earlier than the contract finalisation date and was excellent with giving us updates.
Kudos too, to Elya, the sales consultant we spoke with. He provided us with detailed and prompt service. We would always remember when he went beyond by replying to our queries even on his day off work.
We would also like to commend Melita and Phuong who were also helpful with our pre-construction and settlement queries.
Thank you, Team Thrive!
An amazing journey
It was in January 2020 when my husband and I first got in touch with Thrive Homes. At that time, we were just about to get married and we were looking around for our future home. We spoke to several builders; however, it was only with thrive homes that we felt at ease and at home with and the rest was history. The home consultant that we spoke to knew very well what she was talking about and was very accommodating. She seemed to have understood our qualms as a couple just about to build our first home. She was very reassuring and she patie...ntly listened and answered our queries and made sure that we got a good deal. The rest of the personnel from Thrive that we have gotten in touch with including our pre-construction administrative assistant and site supervisor were likewise very knowledgeable and thorough. We were constantly updated about the development and the outcome of the said project. We have just finished our handover 2 weeks ago and my husband and I are very much delighted as to the outcome of our house. The workmanship was perfect. Our site supervisor, was very professional about everything and was very patient with all our queries all throughout our build. He made sure that everything was in order and on time. He was very honest with everything including meeting our expectations with regards to the time frame and build. He would be completely on top of things and would regularly update us about what is happening and what is expected. Also, it only took us less than 5 months in total for the project to be completed and that includes the Christmas break for a few weeks. My husband and I will definitely recommend building with Thrive Homes
This home is perfect! I love it so much!
I’m very happy with the building of my home!workmanship is great an excellent build. I added some upgrades and I was pleased with the final cost! Nothing left to do but move in!

Great experience to watch our home built by great and professional people.
Commencing our build in the middle of the pandemic, we were expecting delays etc however our experience with Thrive and their team was fantastic. Head Office and John (the Site Supervisor) were efficient and kept us up to date with everything that was happening. John supervised his team of tradesman like Swiss clockwork. We were fortunate to live close to the build and watched it daily. We were very impressed with the site organisation and timing of trades. Expecting a considerable slow down during the Christmas 20/21 break, we were surprised a...bout the number of trades that continued during this time. The timing of each trade was great, I don’t believe there were any extended moments of down time. We commenced in September 20 and moved in Mid March 21. Thrive and John’s build schedule for a 2-storey house was tremendous. Highly recommend Thrive, John and his team.
BETTER THEN 5 STARS-SPEECHLESS
well where do i start,my friends and i all bought homes at the same time. they started building 3 months prior to me. i was driving with my friends in a car when John called me and introduce himself, i said we really want to be in the home by april 2021, knowing quite well this might not be possible,as it's my sons birthday and we want to celebrate in our new home,not to mention that my friends have a 3 months head start and they are building near by and reminded me how stressful it was going to be.... Suprise suprise as we finished our beauti...ful double story home before them. it fells so good. Throughout the build John kept us updated on a regular basis and his updates where spot on. From start to finished we have been included in every aspect of our home.As john says"we built it better together." John mellino is a true professional builder,very transparent and values his clients. He was very easy to approach and made us feel very at ease during the building process.. we were amazed how the home progressed along,even my friends couldn't belive it. John made it look so easy to do. When we walked thru the home for the first time, the quality of work left me speechless. We were overwhelmed how beautiful our home is and are utterly amazed. it fells surreal. our dream home has come true. 5 stars are not enough, add another 5, it has been an amazing journey. our family are forever greatful. thank you John Mellino you are the best.
Fantastic service and awesome home built in record time!
As a first home buyer I was skeptical with going down the home & land package route. After a few meetings with other builders I quickly discovered it was going to a convoluted path to follow through on. That's until I came across Thrive homes, within a few meetings and walk-through display homes I quickly realised Thrive were one of the only builders that stood out with decent quality builds, transparent communication and an easy to work with vibe. Overall I've had a fantastic and seamless experience building with Thrive, and I'd be a strong pr...omoter to anyone else looking to build with them. Review broken up by phases below: Pre-construction phase: Was good, Thrive Homes' open book approach was super easy for budget conscious buyers looking to make sure they stick within budget. At no point was there a feeling there would be a cost blowout, and the team managed communications exceptionally well. Melina (sales consultant) and Melita (pre-construction administrator) were both incredibly helpful. Mid-construction: This is where my expectations were exceeded well beyond belief. Melita continued to do an incredible job in pushing forward with council approvals, plan layouts to get the build underway as quickly as possible. She was also very easy to work with, communicated very clearly and went up and beyond to keep buyers informed on emerging government grants. Once the build commenced in early September, I mentioned to my site supervisor - Joe Camilleri - that it'd be awesome to push for a handover pre-Christmas. I had very low expectations having heard builds can take up to 40 weeks, but Joe did an unbelievable job in pushing along the work, and we were able to have the home completed in record time - just over 12 weeks and pre-Christmas! Joe was absolutely fantastic to deal with and I'd highly recommend Joe as a site manager to anyone else looking at a new build. Post-construction: Post construction has been great, Joe has been in touch regularly to check in on things, and I was impressed with the after-care that was provided. As an example, on very short notice organising additional spare roof tiles for a post-construction solar panel installation. The Thrive team goes up and beyond to deliver excellent customer service. I'm now in the Warranty period, there are a few minor defects that came up with the home, so will have the full post-construction update in due course. Given how awesome Thrive have been to work with till date, I anticipate these will also be easily resolved soon too. In summary - highly recommend Thrive Homes, especially for any fellow first home buyers. They've been a delight to work with!

Went ok but seemed to slow down significantly
Our process with Thrive homes started in June 2020 for a single storey , 21 SQ home on a level block advertised as a house and land package. The block of land was already registered at the time.
The salesperson assured us that we’d be in our home by end January 2021; however the process to get the block of land in our name and sorting out the colour schemes and upgrades took longer than expected.
While a list of potential upgrades was provided when we made our choices, we discovered other options were also possible when we got a copy of the...contract in pre construction. Then had to wait while Thrive was trying to figure out whether a Development Application was needed or not. A bit unexpected for a house and land package. Luckily this wasn’t needed at the end following minor tweaks to the facade and construction started at the end of September. I asked for an additional external tap and paperwork for this took two months and multiple calls, texts and emails. However, the site manager made up for this by being very responsive and accommodating on the addition of a power point. Building went rapidly until December at which point 90% of the build was invoiced with only practical completion to go.
Amazing work. Really quick, excellent work, nice finishing, process was smooth, always ahead of time. Interior is amazing.
Kane and the team has done excellent job. Much appreciated.
It was amazing journey, with upgrades as well it was really peace of mind. Color scheme and selection and designs amazingly. Very happy and
Job was done very well.pre construction manager ALANAH she is superb very responsive and friendly. Never had any problem. Joe site super supervisor always provide upto date information. Finished Well ahead of time.
Joe site supervisor he is legend. Very professional helpful easy going and friendly. Very satisfied with thrive homes
Exceptional and professional builder
On behalf of my husband and I we want to thank the amazing work and professionalism provided to us by Colin from Thrive. We were very satisfied, our building supervisor was understanding and helpful when needed and no question was ever too difficult for him to answer or help with anything we needed. Thank you Colin for assisting us throughout our build process.
Nadia in sales was an absolute dream to deal with when we were looking at house and land packages. She went above and beyond the find the perfect block for us. We asked a million questions and she answered all of them! We appreciated Nadia’s excellent customer service as well as the bang for buck that comes with choosing Thrive Homes. Thank you Nadia
Alana was exceptional during the pre construction phase. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were informed about the Home Builders grant and that we had all of the evidence required. That’...s an additional $25k of funding that we otherwise may have missed! My family is so grateful for Alana’s willingness to answer questions and her efficiency with the process. We cannot speak more highly of Thrive in pre construction phase. Josh Signoretti was our site manager and he was just as great as the rest of the team. My family has just picked up the keys and the house is immaculate. During construction we had fortnightly updates with photos of the house. Any minor issues we saw along the way were acted upon immediately. Josh’s attention to detail is fantastic. We would very happily recommend Thrive to anyone looking to build.
Perfect end to end handover
Just completed my 13 week warranty claims with Tom Dokoza, everything I had on the list was rectified to a quality standard, Tom was great to deal with and explained all my concerns. My home is now ready for investment, I'm extremely satisfied with the build. Thanks Tom, process is now complete.
Love our new home
We are very happy with the process and the end result. Colin managed our job extremely well and was in regular contact. The few small issues we have had since handover have been resolved immediately.
The price did not change from sign off to completion and it was all very transparent.
Thrive Homes Verve 16
Our new home is just amazing. A massive thanks to all the hard work they have done to get our house complete very quickly. Special thanks to Nick for all his efforts in assuring a quality build. Also to Melita behind the scenes sorting pre-construction paperwork etc. Highly recommended builder.
If you get Joe, you're good to go!
When we first started with Thrive there were issues. It was very stressful due to Rawson's handling the admin side of things. Such bad communication, was told things that were not true and the admin staff was incredibly rude.
BUT! Once all the documents were signed and we got to the stage where we were introduced to our site manager, things turned for the better. We could not thank our site manager Joe enough. He not only kept us informed with the whole process, touching base with us fortnightly, but we felt like he genuinely cared about the ...work he and his team put into our home. He knew we wanted to move in before Christmas and he got it done! It is the best Christmas present anyone could ever ask for. Joe went above and beyond which made the process with Thrive that much more enjoyable. The team absolutely smashed the time they said would take to build, getting us in much quicker than we dreamed. So we very much appreciate them! Our home is the essence 22 for reference. :)
Thrive Homes Consultant Steve Gives Excellent Service
One thing we liked about thrive homes is their professionalism. New home consultant Steve replies back promptly to all our enquires and he calls back when he says he will. He was also pleasant through out the pre-construction process and easy to deal with. Well done and keep up the good work!!!
New home build by Thrive Homes
Since signing the contract to build with Thrive the process has been so smooth, this being not only our first home but a newly built one; we went into the process feeling somewhat apprehensive.
We had heard about some horror stories about building a new house, but the team at Thrive couldn't have made the process any easier. The communication and friendliness of the staff always there to help in any way they can, even by answering the same question time and time again.
The process from time the they started the slab to being finished was spot o...
Sales consultant Steve was awesome, helped with every query I had. Help me find my dream home.
Still in pre construction stage, so far everyone I have dealt with has been awesome. Every query Ive had has been answered . The house upgrades have come under budget. The evolve package that came with the house was great.
Hoping the rest of build goes as smooth as the start.
