“I’ve heard good things about Oakworth Homes.”  That was the answer we received when we asked a retired builder for his advice on who to build with.

Why Oakworth?  “They are a small builder, and will keep you involved with all the details.  You don’t get that with a big builder.  And they also do custom homes, so you can design your own home, or use/adjust one of their plans.”

This was just the advice we needed, but we did our due diligence; checked their workmanship, spoke to their tradies, and asked other builders for quotes as well.

Oakworth were extremely accommodating with our plans, something we really appreciated.  We also wanted a split level house as we had a slight slope from back-to-front on our block, so they suggested we look at a split level they were building in Thirlmere.  Excellent workmanship!  Oakworth were even able to reinforce the garage slab to support a car hoist, something one of us wanted. 

The whole building process was the most stress-free we have ever experienced (we’ve built four homes).  Bob in the display homes in Tahmoor is the easiest-going person on the planet - never pushed us for a sale, and let us look through countless times, just what we wanted.  Steve is the internet of building knowledge, giving sensible advice along the way, just what we wanted.  Judy runs the office and keeps you in the loop at all times, with colour selections, costs, etc, just what we wanted.  And the building supervisor?  That’s Peter, nothing was too much trouble, regular phone calls, meetings on site to discuss things, just what we wanted.  Oh, and the price?  Just what we wanted. 

Are you still looking for a builder?  Have you heard good things about Oakworth Homes?  We can’t recommend them highly enough.

Our journey with Oakworth Homes commenced in late 2017 after visiting the display home in Spring Farm. We were immediately drawn to the available layouts, finishes and inclusions that Oakworth Homes offered.

Our tender process was seamless and transparent. We didn’t feel pressured or overwhelmed with decisions and no extra unexpected costs arising after tender. As first home buyers and builders with a budget in mind, this was important to us.

We were offered a wide comprehensive choice of quality standard and optional upgraded inclusions and supported to make the right decision for our family.

The building of our home was executed at such a high standard and we believe this is because Oakworth use trusted trades and in addition, have very experienced site supervisors. We have had experienced friends and family visit since we received the keys who are working in the construction industry and provided nothing but compliments at the level of detail and workmanship.

We would not hesitate to recommend Oakworth Homes to anyone considering building a home. You will be provided with superior service and a quality built home.

Kind regards

After our last building experience we were acutely aware of the hidden costs and tricks of the trade with so many other builders, so it was refreshing to find a company like Oakworth Homes that were upfront and honest with their pricing structure, true to their word and incredibly approachable from start to finish. Any changes we made (and there were many) were never too much trouble, all done with the minimum of fuss and carried out perfectly.

Our home is absolutely beautiful and whilst we are still unpacking, it already feels like the home we always dreamt of, with so much space for the entire family.

We would not hesitate to recommend Oakworth Homes to any of our friends and family, and would like to thank them for making a usually difficult process so smooth and easy!

We had a great and stress free building experience with Oakworth Homes.  The whole team were great from start to finish.  Steve Moloney went above and beyond our expectations with the build.  Always answering any questions we had and always returning phone calls.  The best part is that we dealt iwth the builder directly.

The workmanship from all their trades was excellent.  We couldn't be happier with the quality throughout our home. Thank you to everyone at Oakworth Homes for building our dream home. 

We strongly recommond anyone thinking about building to talk to Oakworth Homes before making a decision.

My partner Adam and I recently built our first home with Oakworth and we could not have been happier with the service they provided right from day 1 and the outstanding home they built for our family.

At first we were nervous about building brand new as we had heard the horror stories and been warned by several family members and friends not to build brand new but Steve and the team at Oakworth went above and beyond to make our building experience as smooth and care free as possible! From choosing and purchasing a block of land to finding the right house design and perfecting every little detail to suit our individual needs Oakworth went far above and beyond our expectations. They were up front and realistic and there were absolutely no hidden surprises or expenses. The short amount of time our house was built in and ready to move in was amazing. We have no hesitation in recommending Oakworth to anyone looking at building their own dream home and will definitely be returning to Oakworth when it comes time to upsize!

Dear Steve

Gary and I would like to thank you and your team for the beautiful home that you have built for us at Gregory Hills.

We have built before with another builder and I can tell you we were very apprehensive about building again due to all the dramas that we went through at that time. In saying that, you and your team have made this experience a very enjoyable and exciting time for us from beginning to end.

Your architect was wonderful, we spoke to him about what we wanted and he produced those plans, but he also showed us a design that he thought would work well with our block and that was the design we went for as you know.  We are constantly receiving compliments on the design and appearance of our home. I will even go as far as letting you know that an employee of the Gregory Hills development team has commented that we not only have the best looking house in the street, that we have the best looking house in Gregory Hills. We agree.

The price we paid, my goodness. You guys beat every other builder hands down, and as you know, we did not cut corners on size, inclusions or quality.

We appreciate the time and honesty Judy and yourself spent with us, and explaining each process during the building of our home at no time did you make us feel that we were an inconvenience to you or that our questions were stupid.

It was also reassuring to see you on site alot as you know we were also there alot, and that didn't even seem to bother you or your tradesmen they were always very friendly and obliging.

Please, at anytime you would like to show our home to any of your potential or existing customers, we would be more than happy to show them, you are also more than welcome to give them our number for us to share our experience with Oakworth Homes.

We come home every day and feel so happy in our home that you built for us.

Thank you again for building us our dream home that I know we will enjoy for many years to come.

Yours Sincerely,
Gary and Sandy Balderson

To Whom It May Concern

Building our new home with Oakworth has been an easy experience and a lot less stressful than anticipated. Being a small team all our dealings with Oakworth were very personals with results straight away. Being able to deal with the person who is building your home has definitely been an advantage.

We have owned and renovated several homes over the years this time we were looking to design a home to suit our young family of the future. We were very impressed with Oakworth we had pretty firm ideas on what we wanted and needed someone with experience and ability to make it a reality. Oakworth sat down and helped us create our dream home. They handled all the details and kept us in the loop every step of the way explaining everything as it was about to happen, we felt in capable hand the whole time.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Oakworth to anyone.

Yours Sincerely,
Vanessa & Chris Maltby
