A Year in Review – Tom Sachs of Stroud Homes Ipswich

A Year in Review – Tom Sachs of Stroud Homes Ipswich

Looking Back & Looking Forward

Stroud Homes Ipswich’s General Manager Tom Sachs’ goal and ambition at Stroud Homes is to create quality homes for his customers, delivered with impeccable service.

We caught up with Tom to hear how the past year had gone and what he is expecting out of the twelve fresh months ahead of him and the team at Ipswich.

Looking back

Jumping on board the business last year, Tom says the “home building industry in Ipswich is on fire at the moment”, with the area being an extremely fast-growing one with lots of potential for quality new homes, and with hot-spots like Ripley and surrounding suburbs, Karalee, Marburg, Fernvale and Hattonvale.

“My highlight for 2018 would be all the two-storey homes we have completed. We are still quite young and it was the first year we sold and completed some two-storey designs,” Tom tells us.

Tom goes on to describe the year to us as “fun, but hard” and said the greatest challenge for the company was finding the right Supervisor for the team. “We had a couple attempts but now we are onto a good thing with Dean,” he said.

There’s huge potential in Ipswich at the moment with new homes going up everywhere and Tom is looking forward to making his mark on the territory. He said he’s also looking forward to “some registered land” in the new year, as the land in 2018 was few and far apart.

With green field blocks available in the area, new land registering early in 2019 and a huge potential for knock-down rebuilds, Tom and the team are sure to get busy this year. “My goal for 2019 is to lay 40 Slabs,” Tom said.
