I just can’t thank you enough for the wonderful home you have built for us. My daughter and I could not be happier! We are so pleased that we chose to live in Abbey Lane and you deserve a great big pat on the back for a job well done! Thanks again!
Have a great day!
Warm regards, Susan EJ – 2015 – 2016
I wanted to write and say the most sincere thank you for all that you did at 10 Jarvis Ave, Croydon.
As you are well aware, this was my first multi-unit development and what came with that was a vast lack of knowledge and experience regarding the building process. You and your staff were always patient with me, always happy to explain things, often more than once, which I really appreciated. At no time was I made to feel stupid, which I felt anyway at times without someone else helping me in this area.
You were always approachable and reasonable with any discussions that arose the quality of your work was fantastic and I was very happy and proud to hand the new units/townhouses over to the new purchasers. I would be happy to refer you and your business to anyone who needs a good quality builder at a reasonable price.
Thanks again Chris. You have made this whole experience extremely enjoyable and I will definitely continue in my venture of property development.
You will be top of my list of builders for the next build!
We Adam and Michelle Pace, recently had our extension built by your company. As you know the extension involved major enlargements and alteration of our living areas, formation of storage cupboards, addition of an ensuite and walk in robe to a new master bedroom and a configuration of a formal entrance.
This letter is to tell you how very pleased we are with the finished result. Brownhill Homes were extremely professional in the planning of the extension, and were entirely approachable when we had questions or problems. Brownhill Homes kept us informed at every stage, as they took control of everything from start to finish.
We would absolutely recommend Brownhill Homes to anyone considering extending or building a house. Brownhill Homes made the entire process so easy for us, and for that we are truly appreciative.
Sincerely Michelle and Adam Pace.
With a challenging sloping block in Heathmont, we were looking for a builder that was local to the area. As we had our own design and plans, we wanted a builder that would be able to work with us and allow us to have some input on the construction. We found Chris to be very helpful and approachable with this.
With a construction start in a very wet July 2011, the biggest challenges were the site access, rainwater runoff and drainage. Fortunately the Brownhill team were very conscious of this and were able to get the footings and brickwork out of the ground despite the weather.
We found the following months of construction went smoothly and any site issues were dealt with efficiently. We found the site meetings with the foreman, project manager and Chris were great and gave us a great insight to the progress of construction. We were also able to complete the construction of the decking areas ourselves prior to moving in, which gave us great satisfaction that we were able to add our own personal touch to our new home.
Post construction, Chris and his team went to great lengths to ensure that everything was in working order and to our satisfaction.
Several months later, we have to say that we are very proud of and happy with our new home and would happily recommend Chris and his team at Brownhill Homes to any future home builders.

To whom it may concern,
Brownhill Homes has been our preferred builder for more than 20 building developments and has built in excess of 60 units for our company Eastern Building Developments over more than fifteen years.
Most of the projects have been multiple unit developments, some with challenging site problems to overcome.
We have continued to choose Brownhill Homes for the outstanding service we have received.
Chris runs his business with a great deal of integrity and we have complete trust in Brownhill Homes.
Chris has a relaxed manner and this combined with a thoroughly professional approach makes him very easy to deal with.
Our varied projects have been all been successfully completed and we have no hesitation (and have) in selecting him as our builder of choice for our current projects.
Yours sincerely Ross Holt Director Eastern Building Developments PTY LTD
We are so happy with our quality built Brownhill town house.
From beginning to end we were impressed with Chris Brownhill and his workers.
Always open to suggestions and honest with all stages of the building.
We would like to thank Chris, also Tanya and the office staff for their continual updates, support, ideas and even friendship throughout the project.
John and Dianne Ringwood East
I am so happy that I chose to build the house with you! The quality of a builder is known not by what they do when they are building for you but it is known by what they do after the project is finished!. This is one important reason I will come back to you for another building project and, most importantly, I would refer my friends to come to you for their building projects!!!

In early 2010, we engaged Brownhill Homes to build our three bedroom unit. Chris and his team competed for the contract against a number of other builders who all came highly recommended.
From the outset Chris’ quote were the most realistic and demonstrated the greatest value for money. During the quotation process and immediately afterwards, Chris took us through step by step the stages of the build and the expected timelines. This was extremely important to us as we were living on site as the unit was a result of a subdivision.
Chris took the time to explain the technical terms in easy to understand language. Questions that we did have were answered promptly.
Throughout the build, all processes ran to schedule. If a workman was to start on a due date, he started on that date. There were no cost blow outs and all costs were upfront and clearly outlined in the building contract.
I can highly recommend Chris and his team for your future housing project.
Thanks again Chris and team – a sensational job.

Based on the above, we approached Chris about an extension/renovation to our 17 year old home which we had outgrown.
This project was quite significant and included the removal of internal walls and an existing deck, expanding our family room area (where the deck used to be), creating a new deck, adding on a second storey and finally a new kitchen.
The project took approximately 10 months and with the exception of one week whilst timber floors were sanded and polished we continued to live in our home throughout!
As most will know renovations and extensions can be challenging and unpredictable at the best of times however we felt involved throughout and being on site meant questions could be dealt with almost immediately and delays were minimized as a result.
A number of changes had to be made during the process with materials becoming unavailable and yet with open discussion and communication the best resolutions were reached and changes were made without issue.
Post renovation we are very happy with the result and are enjoying our “new” home. We are more than happy to provide this testimonial and to recommend Chris and his team at Brownhill Homes.

It is with pleasure we provide a testimonial for Chris Brownhill and his company, Brownhill Homes Pty Ltd.
We were first introduced to Chris via one of our clients. He was and continues as project builder for this particular client. We have had a number of opportunities to view the projects completed by Brownhill Homes and have been suitably impressed with the finished product.
Since this initial introduction, Chris has successfully tendered on a number of construction projects for our clients in addition to being personally selected by a number of other clients who did not wish to use the Tender process. In the latter scenario, we generally provide our clients with the name of two or three builders (who are in a position to assist) and they will generally approach them direct.
Chris, and Brownhill Homes, has been known to us for approximately 10 years. We have found Chris and his team friendly, easy going and they strive to achieve a quality result for our clients.
Our clients have been more than happy with the results and are also willing to provide their own recommendation of and referral to Brownhill Homes.
