We’re in this together

Opting for a local builder should equal an accessible team who make the effort to keep in touch. At Brownhill Homes we maintain regular contact with clients, offering comprehensive weekly updates on your build’s progress.

An established local builder has contingency plans for every eventuality. Clients can rest assured the team have the experience needed to ensure each step progresses smoothly.

When you build local, no one is redirecting your calls to the correct state or regional office. The builder is in the area. This is their project. Professional pride and their local reputation are on the line. The new build must be outstanding.

Local over national 

Unlike a national operation, a local business is deeply impacted by feedback. We have to provide the highest quality service to secure repeat business and encourage glowing word of mouth referrals.

A local builder also understands the ins and outs of council approval and permit processes. In turn, they are more likely to recognise our reliability and thoroughness when it comes to necessary paperwork.

Because we focus on fewer homes overall than national competitors, our family-run and operated business is focused on putting our heart and soul into every build in the Brownhill Homes portfolio.

Local market knowledge

A local builder can offer unique insight into the local market. As return customers, we have the contacts to secure affordability and quality when purchasing materials from trusted local suppliers. This is also important in times of supply shortages, as our long-standing relationships with key suppliers minimise the impact of delays.

We also believe in the importance of investing money back into the local community. That’s why Brownhill Homes engage local tradespeople where possible and employ local people on staff.

Our strong relationship with the local community means our friendly team can assist if the need for change arises during the build. Trust us to know the perfect local professional who can help meet the needs of your project.

Local builders and developers

As unit development specialists, we’ve built many standout local residential properties. If interested in the development potential of a site, talk to the informed team at Brownhill Homes for helpful local insight. We’ve been working in the local area for over 25 years so can provide an informed opinion on the potential of your block.

We also have the local contacts to source competitively priced supplies that benefit your profit margin. No matter the project size, our team makes sure construction stays on budget and on schedule.

We look forward to your build
