When it comes to building a new home, it’s important to ensure every detail is taken care of. At Signature Homes our New Home Consultants (NHCs) ask a lot of questions because their job is to help you create your dream home, at the right price for your budget.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live in sunny Tauranga with my beautiful family - wife Lana, daughter Madeline, baby G (number 2 due very soon) and 2 fur babies, Charlie & Lola. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family & friends, getting out on the golf course, and reading a good book.
 

What do you love about being a New Home Consultant?

My clients! I love working with them to design and build their dream homes.

To me, the relationship I build with my clients through the process is special. I always strive to provide them with the best experience possible.
 

How would you describe your work philosophy? 

I believe building a new home should be one of the best experiences of your life! 

I take the stress out of the process, so my clients can simply sit back and enjoy the journey. I’m not going to lie, building a home is a complicated process but we have excellent systems and processes throughout Signature Homes to ensure we deliver homes on time, on budget and to the highest of standards.
 

Explain your style of working? What do you find works best for your clients?

Having conversations and connecting with people sitting in front of me. You can’t build a relationship over email or talking on a phone. Communication is very important to me, and I strive for my clients to always understand where we are at during the process.
 

What are the top trends you’re seeing with your clients at the moment?

  • Dark colours on exteriors are very popular
  • Timber flooring inside to bring some warmth and elegance to the interior 
  • Ducted air con is very popular. The systems seem to keep getting better and better!
     

What are your top tips for clients wanting to build a new home?

  1. Have a great understanding of what you want in your home and what your budget is.
  2. Do research about the building company you are engaging with. Understand how long they have been in business for, what types of guarantees they offer and speak to existing clients on how they have found the building process
  3. Regarding pricing, it’s important to understand what the inclusion specification is, what PC sums or allowances are in the contract (It’s important you understand how they have come to those numbers), and it’s important for you to understand what isn’t in the pricing they give you.

 

What are some of your favourite Signature Homes plans and why?

Design & Build 

My favourite plan in the Design & Build Collection would have to be the Greville plan. I have been through it and our franchise built it. It’s a landmark in Waihi Beach now and for good reason.
