Linda: Hi, I’m Linda. This is Ellia.

Doug: And I’m Doug. So, we just built the Avoca 227. And we’ve been in about three months now.

Linda: Yeah. The customer service was amazing. They built our house in three months, which was unheard of. I actually felt confident the whole time during the build, because the communication was amazing with the whole team. And a lot of people say it’s really stressful building a house. That wasn’t our experience with Stroud.

View Transcript

Male: Yeah, I’m a tradie and have my own business. And after seeing Stroud’s workmanship and how fast they are, at the same time, the finishes have been really good. I just can’t fault anything they’ve done so far. And that’s hard. Everyone says, “Oh, you’re building. Oh, that’s gonna be a nightmare.” But…

Female: Yeah, they’re like, “Oh, it’s gonna be so stressful.” But we haven’t felt stressed at all. We just wanna say a big thank you to Phil and Nathan, and all the people that work with Stroud, for building our dream house.

View Transcript

Male: We’re so happy with the quality of the build, and Phil, our foreman who’s been in charge from the start, he’s just done such an amazing job.

Female: Communication has been really good with Stroud, and that’s just key when building. The Wildflower, when we walked in we love the open layout. We liked how at one end the kid’s retreat was there, and then down the other end was the master bedroom. And like the kitchen was open, and so you could…if like in future with kids, you can see straight outside and you can see them running around and not have to be worried.

View Transcript

Male: So we’re probably two weeks away from completion, which has gone so quick. And we’re just so happy with the quality of the build and Phil, our foreman, who’s been in charge from the start has just done an amazing job.

Female: We started in June, and we’re just so happy with how fast it’s gone. And we can’t wait to be in there.

View Transcript

Doug: We started the process of this build while we were still living in Sydney. All that groundwork was laid before we even moved to Brisbane. So, that…and that was quite seamless. It was all by phone calls and emails. There was really no drama at all.

Linda: I’d love to build with them again if we get the opportunity, and I’ve recommended them to my staff. Some of them that have been building have difficult experiences. I’ve just recommended them saying that it’s been a stress-free experience for us.

View Transcript

Male: I would strongly recommend them. I feel that their attention to detail, the integrity shown by Jace and his team of people working for him was always of a high standard.

Female: They are friendly, approachable, willing to help you in any way you want and any way you want to build your home.

View Transcript

Male: One of the main reasons or one of the reasons that we went with Stroud was the fact there was no hidden extras. What you saw in the show home is exactly what you got in the house.

Female: We got the keys end of November last year. So, we’ve been in it…

Male: Virtually 12 months.

Female: Yeah. Nearly 12 months. What I like best about it? I think everything. I can honestly say that I love the house.

View Transcript

Male: We built the Wildflower 216 a bit over 12 months ago, and the whole time we’ve been here, we’ve been very impressed with the house.

Female: We love it.

Male: We love it. We’ve always told people who we’ve run into that building with Stroud, we didn’t have any problems. It was fantastic.

Both: We are so happy that we built with Stroud.

View Transcript

There was integrity. I saw an honesty about them. I saw a willingness for them to really please the customer. I think Jace, from the very beginning, made it very plain that the house that we were gonna get would be something that they would be happy to build for themselves. And they have come up with that product. We are very happy.

View Transcript

I’ve built probably five or six times before, and one thing I found with Stroud that I haven’t found with other builders is that they kept us fully informed. It was a surprise to see emails come in, saying, “This is what the next step is. This is what to expect. This is how long it’s gonna take,” and the full-step process. It was like, “Oh, wow, somebody actually cares about me.”

View Transcript

Male: When we were looking to build, one of the things we were looking for was a builder who was flexible, who would meet or accommodate any minor adjustments that we wanted to make. One thing we found that Stroud meet us all along the way.

Female: They told us that we will be 16 weeks, and we were, even with rain. So, they allowed that as well, but they still came in time. Also, their finishings on the house were very good as well.

Male: We will build with Stroud again. No second thoughts.

An amazing Builder!

Our house is finnished!!

we just built a house with stroud homes. ive worked with other home companys in the past but stroud homes is so easier to deal with. from the first day we started dealing with the salesman (name removed) he was helpful with finding the perfect design for the property and even the director Mr stroud came to the property now that is something that proves amazing service.dealing with other home companys that was never even thought of, meeting the director. with the salesman another thing that was obvious is he knew what he was talking about.

that was the very first sign to me that stroud homes was the one. once the building commenced we were always up to date with every stage and of course there was some little problems with the soil as expected but we were up to date from phone calls at all times. i really liked the fact that we had a guided tour of the site with the supervisor (name removed) he knew exactly what was going on there was never a ahh or a umm as a tradesman and contractor myself, i was pleased to see that all the work was done perfectly and neat and above minimum standards. durring the middle of the construction i was bit late one afternoon to ask stroud homes a question it was just after 5 pm every other company would just shut there phones off at 5 pm or even before (many experiances) however i talked straight with mr stroud and my question was answered instantly. now thats true service. the house is completed infact it was done before they promised. ill only ever build with stroud homes.

Couldn’t be happier!

The Team at Stroud Homes Wollongong not only built our new home but assisted my husband in his proposal. They went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable and stress free. We had been to numerous other builders whom all told us that we would have to build a two story home on our block as they did not have a plan that exactly suited our block however, as soon as we went to Stroud Homes they were happy to work with us (for hours, Trav) to design the perfect house for our block. Each week we received picture updates on our house and the team was always available to answer any questions or provide us assistance throughout the entire build. The build was quick and of high quality.

Dream home a perfect reality

Choosing to build our family home with Stroud Homes Northern Rivers, was the best decision. We designed a custom built home, that worked with the slope of our block, and the team at Stroud worked hard to get us exactly what we envisaged. Although we contacted other builders for a quote, Stroud’s standard inclusions were unbeatable! The quote provided to us at contract, is the price we had paid by handover. There were no hidden costs with Stroud. Between Contract Administrator Larnah, to Sales manager Luke, and Site Supervisor Rohan, we had fast communication and lots of support. Rohan offered regular walk-throughs, and kept us fully informed throughout the build. We’re now living in a perfectly designed home for our family, and are very happy with the high quality finishes. Thank you Matt Lowson and your awesome team, on a very positive building experience.

Exceeded our expectations

Reasons why we chose Stroud.

– They listen

– No judgment as you entre the display home

– Very welcoming no matter the time

– Eye for detail

– Value for money

My wife and I wanted a different type of home then todays modern styling and we couldn’t be happier with the results. At first there was a bit of back and forth to get everything we wanted and with in budget but well worth it and the proses took no where near the time I thought.

Our home was build last year on a very slopped block and Jason was very persistent to make everything work and the expectation was exceeded. Even if you have a odd shaped block or some things you would want to have out of the standard the task is never to big for Stroud West.

I would highly recommend Jason and his team at Stroud West. You want be disappointed. Cheers Team

Extremely Happy!

Our experience with Stroud Homes Gold Coast has been amazing! We’ve never built before and we can honestly say that the whole process from start to finish has been so exciting and stress free. We love our beautiful, new home & its exactly what we imagined! Nothing was ever a problem and even when we wanted to make changes in the planning process, we were never made to feel like it was an issue. We looked around at other builders but there were always “add ons” in the cost. Our end price included everything!

Stroud Homes “listened” to what we wanted and delivered it with great customer service & workmanship.

Thank you Nathan, Terri & Team for genuinely caring & looking after us.

Great experience building first home

We chose to build with Stroud over others based on the great inclusions and excellent communication. One of the biggest factors was that we always felt like valued customers and the staff made us feel like our build was as important to them as it was to us.
The build progressed at a pace beyond our expectations and was completed well ahead of the 16 week guaranteed timeframe.

We were always kept updated with Voxer including voice and photo messages and any issues or concerns were addressed promptly.

The only negative would be that some of our verbal discussions didn’t seem to translate onto the plans and into the contract. A huge priority for us was side access but at the end of the day the space left for the side access on the plan wasn’t actually big enough and by the time we realised the slab was already down. This was our fault for not picking it up on the plan but we felt that this could have been communicated better to us rather than letting us think we were getting something different to what the end result would actually be.

Overall we are very happy with Stroud and it has been a great learning experience. The staff at the Sunshine Coast are all excellent and we feel like we built up a great rapport with Dan, Sarah and Shane.
