A Year In Review – Mariah Foley of Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga

A Year In Review – Mariah Foley of Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga

Looking Back & Looking Forward

Sales Manager at Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga, Mariah Foley, is using the words “exhilarating, rewarding and busy” to describe last year for the company.

It was a year of winnings, with the team being recognised as finalists in five categories at the Housing Industry Association (HIA) Awards in September, and snagging first price for best Project Home. We asked Mariah to tell us more about 2018 and her prediction for the new year…


What was the highlight for your franchise in 2018?

There’s been many great highlights this year, such as winning best Project Home of the Year at the HIA Awards on our Vermilion 312 – Mountain Façade, and creating quality homes for our clients.

Throughout the year we handed over twelve Stroud Homes to their families, and we have another four under construction with more scheduled for the year.


What was the biggest hurdle you or your business overcame in 2018?

It has been a great year thanks to our clients, trades, team and suppliers. If there was any hurdles, it would be the lack of land availability that is ready to build on now.


Did you notice any building trends in your region over the year?

Traditional façades are becoming a popular trend, as well as large acreage homes. What we are seeing more of is custom plans as people are looking for something that other building companies don’t provide.

Our plans are completely customisable to suit your needs, or if you would like to start from scratch. This is tied in with the quality that Stroud Homes offer in our standard inclusions, and the level of quality within the inclusions and our builds.

Happy handover: Custom built home with federation façade – congratulations Kevin & Maree!


What are you most looking forward to in 2019?

Participating more in the community, building our new display home and growing the business.

Last year in July, Stroud Homes Wagga donated 300 native seedlings to Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare (PDF 565KB)

The Urban Landcare group plays a leading role in the preservation and enhancement of the region’s natural and cultural assets and has been able to enhance participation and generate enthusiasm through a series of beneficial partnerships established with a variety of local organisations.


Lastly, any important dates or milestones we should know about for 2019?

Construction of our new display home will be happening later in 2019. It is truly a master piece and we believe it will tick all the boxes with the essential needs of a growing family.
