This is the second house that we have built with Darren Sears and his team.  From Tira, the exceptional builder and his team, all the way through to the kitchen installers, painters, tile layers, carpet layers and many more hands on people, nothing was too big or too small for the team to handle and it shows in their workmanship on our beautiful home. We have said that this is our last build, but if it did happen again there is no one else we would use than Abode Homes.

Ally & Darren

We were considering a new house build; however we didn’t want the hassle of working with builders, subcontractors, the Council etc. So we looked at several building firms and after viewing the company show home decided they would be the ideal firm to go with; we absolutely loved their show home.

Right from the word go everyone was excellent to deal with, friendly professional and responsive. Their New Home’s Consultant was a joy to work with. She was very organised, proactive and provided great ideas when discussing plans and design considerations. 

Their Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor, were friendly, communicative and easy to contact. The builders and trades people engaged by the company were all great to work with and produced high quality workmanship.  Any concerns or issues during the whole build process were minimal and those that popped up were quickly dealt with.  Overall we are extremely satisfied with our new home and are very glad we chose to build with this company and the talented individuals they employ.

The after care service has also been excellent. We would definitely use this company again, if in the future we ever decided to build again.

Brent and Danella

We just want to say a ‘big thanks’ for building our new house. It's been almost a year with dealing with your team and you feel like family members to us; we can't believe it’s now time to say goodbye. It was really nice dealing with you. We appreciate your hard work and effort to build our new house, giving us a roof over our heads.

About the house, we really like it very much. All of you guys have done a really great job and thanks for the gifts that you gave us on hand over. It was very nice. We would like you guys to build a house for our kids in future as well. With the build now complete, it's sad as well to say goodbye. We wish all of you good luck with the future, and once again thank you very much.

We are rapt with our new home from Abode Homes in Waikanae North. From the time we signed up for the fixed price house and land design package, it was 10 months to the day that we unlocked the front door and moved in. The build process was very smooth, we were kept informed on progress, and any issues were sorted out promptly along the way. At all times, we found Darren and his team easy to get hold of and good to deal with, and we were always made to feel welcome when we dropped past the building site to view the progress. We have no hesitation in recommending Abode Homes to build your home.

Bruce & Karen Stewart

Our relationship started with Darren and his team in mid-2014. We had purchased a section in Heretaunga and visited Darren’s show home in Upper Hutt where we met with their New Home Consultant.

We found a floor plan we liked, but there were changes we wanted to make and Darren’s team were flexible and able to accommodate these. The build was under way in late February 2015 and the house was completed on time and handed over to us in August.

Our builder Tira had an eye for detail which produced a quality detail finish. We are absolutely delighted with our new home built by Darren and the Abode Homes team in Johnsonville.

Sharon & Steve Costley

We are absolutely thrilled we chose Abode Homes to build our family home! After meeting John at the show-home and seeing some of the houses Abode Homes had built, we knew they would build us a quality home.

We are incredibly thankful to Darren and his team for making the whole building process so easy; you respected our ideas, accommodated our requests and worked closely with us to fulfill our wishes and bring our vision to life. And all within the proposed timeframe and to budget.

The night Darren and Wendy handed us the keys to the house, we couldn’t stop grinning from ear to ear - this gorgeous house was now our family home. And a month later ... we’re still smiling!! Thank you Abode Homes for a job well done!
