Testimonials

John & Belinda Loved The Way Sanctuary Listened To Them

When John and Belinda Waters were planning to build a new home at Murrays Beach they talked with a few builders about what type of home they wanted. But according to John the builders didn't seem to want to listen. "I could tell that they just weren't listening and one builder even said that's not the type of home you should build. They even seemed to be arrogant at our meetings with them".

"Then we found Sanctuary New Homes and the difference was amazing. They listened carefully and worked with our mud map to come up with what we wanted," said John. According to John, Gary and Amanda Palmer seemed to want their project right from the start.

"Amanda was excited about working on our dream home and that gave us a good feeling. It was like being amongst friends and I think that's because it is a family company." They were so helpful and when we wanted to make some changes to the mud map it was no problem. They were so tuned in to what we wanted in our home. It was a breath of fresh air after our bad experiences with other home builders.

"Everything was plain sailing and they pay great attention to detail right down to the little things like sliding doors moving smoothly. There was no cost surprises because they were so upfront about any extra costs which were all included in the quotation price," John continued. John and Belinda know that some of their neighbours who built with other builders are disappointed with the quality of their homes.

"We have had neighbours across to our place and they expressed surprise with the inclusions in our home which shows we got a good deal". John paid tribute to the Sanctuary team who he says were amazing.

"We had a good relationship with our site supervisor Robert who was always available to answer out questions and returned our calls promptly." 

"Would we build with Sanctuary New Homes again? Absolutely, they were great to build with".

John and Belinda Murrays Beach

"I wanted high ceilings as well as French Doors to the courtyard, to take in the natural bush views from the alfresco, rather than just having windows. Both Amanda and Gary worked with me combining our ideas to create a beautiful home,"

"My site supervisor, Robert, who met with me regularly on site to check the building progress, was very good to work with throughout the construction and to the handover of the keys.

"Both Amy and Sam in the Sanctuary office at Tuggerah were a great help throughout the process. Amy, with colour and inclusions choices before the build and Sam kept me up to date with construction progress on a regular basis. I felt that communication was important.”

"All in all I have a lovely home. Any glitches were attended to quickly and professionally and Sanctuary New Homes kept informed all the way through. So, I am very happy with my new home,"

Dear Sanctuary Team,

We can not express our gratitude enough to Sanctuary New Homes™. Having built our first home Beau and I were not sure what to expect. After making enquiries with numerous project builders and being turned down due to “traffic control issues” our dreams of building were quickly crushed, that was until of course we found Sanctuary New Homes™. Not only did the Team Sanctuary New Homes™ welcome us with open arms but they were the first builder to take us seriously.

The communication between the Sanctuary New Homes™ Team and us was unbelievable!!! We were kept in the loop throughout the entire building process.

Looking back I am so grateful that the other builders we enquired with turned us down. We could not be happier with our new home! We were able to completely modify the House to meet our needs. The Team is extremely accommodating and approachable and no request was “too much trouble”. I would highly recommend Sanctuary New Homes™ to anyone looking to build. A special thanks to  Amanda, Gary, Shane, Sam & Amy for making us feel like we were dealing with a family rather than a building company. Warm regards from the happiest clients in the world!!!

Words cannot even begin to describe how happy we are to have our new home. It is not just a house to our family, it is our haven, our Sanctuary, a place where we belong, our livelihood. We went through the motions with many other builders before we came across Sanctuary New Homes™ and none of them could  deliver what we wanted, but right from the beginning we felt your team understood our vision. So much so in fact, that the finished product has exceeded our dreams. So from the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank your whole team for making our dreams a reality and building us our forever home. Thank you.

SANCTUARY™ ARE DIFFERENT to the average project builder because they custom build. You find you are putting your ideas forward and you design with them to achieve the right result. It worked well for us. We would certainly recommend Sanctuary to other families looking to build a home and in fact we have already done that.

Mr & Mrs Isbister Wadalba

Couldn’t be happier with our new home. Thank you to all the staff at Sanctuary New Homes™ who made building our home a great experience. We love it!!!

Erin Jones McGrigor

Building with you was overall a really positive experience for us. You helped smooth over all the legal and technical hurdles with professionalism. The staff were all so friendly and helpful in making this an experience worth repeating. Best of all you finished a month ahead of schedule.

Mr and Mrs T, Morriset

Thank you both so much for all the effort and time you have put into the building of our new home at Murrays Beach. Always keeping us in touch with what needed to be done and the fact we were at Kiama and building in Newcastle, you both made it all go so smoothly. Thanks again.

John & Dianne (Murrays Beach)

We were overall amazed at the finished product of our home, you helped us all the way through and to our great surprise we finished more than a month early than expected. The whole experience was positive and wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again, you were always willing to accommodate our ideas and changes, I always feel happy driving up the driveway and seeing my unique design and love the fact no one in my street have this design.

Carleen and Gemma

Just a few lines to say “thank you all” for helping us achieve our new home. Being first time builders we were probably a fair pain at times but nobody told us what a daunting proposition it could be (at times anyway). But you pulled us through it and  we are happy the process is over at last (nothing to do with living in a caravan at all!). Thank you for all your assistance to us. We wish you continued success and that you can make many more happy home builders like us!

Alicia & John (Tumbi Umbi)

What an exciting day! A big thank you to the entire Sanctuary New Homes™ team for an amazing job. You have all been such a pleasure to deal with and we are so grateful for all your hard work. Thank you!

Because Sanctuary New Homes™ custom build there are no hidden extras whereas other builders will charge more for every change you make to their standard design.

It gave us the peace of mind that we would get we wanted without busting the budget. We found the Sanctuary™ people such as Gary & Amanda Palmer as well as Sam Burgess in the office, wonderful to work with. We are delighted with our new home which we moved into in September. It’s hard to pick my favourite part of our home. I love my kitchen because I love the separate butler’s pantry to hide the things that no one wants to see. And then, I also love the media room, which can be closed off from the rest of the living. I also love watching the sun set in the evening from our alfresco. We will be enjoying Christmas 2015 in our new home with our four children so, we are pretty excited with the way it has all worked out.

"Very Happy We Found Sanctuary New Homes"

We partnered with a project builder and found we couldn’t use the plan they had designed.

Gary set about designing the single story, four bedroom home we had our hearts set on, to suit our triangular block.

Sanctuary New Homes are site specific as each home they build is custom designed for that specific block. 

We proved you don’t necessarily have to pay project builder prices. Interestingly, I have spoken to other families in our estate who have built with project home builders and they (are) nowhere as happy as we are with our home.  

We have no hesitation in recommending Gary and the team at Sanctuary new Homes who (for those) who are looking to build a high quality home at the right price. They include everything in the price up front so you know exactly how much to budget for.
