We were absolutely delighted to have built with Kennedy Homes and found Darren Kennedy to be easy to work with, flexible and a master builder who delivers excellence in every aspect of the build. Even though we had built a number of times in QLD and interstate we were concerned about our build being away from the site however Darren was able to put our minds at ease right from the start of the project. He made sure we understood changes and requirements and made sure our block was levelled properly with no useable land lost! This is a major issue with many project builders who just cut around the house site causing costly drainage and landscaping dramas.
As we had beautiful views and aspect he worked with us on the planning and was flexible so we could source and arrange supply of the Miele kitchen appliances we wanted as well. He even allowed us to upgrade our cornices at that stage of the build. We were away interstate and unable to visit our build apart from major intervals but Darren kept us informed daily and supervised all the trades who worked on our home who were absolutely outstanding. Darren went above and beyond what we would have expected of any builder allowing us to coordinate our pool being built in line with the build and ensuring any contractors we had arranged did the work to Kennedy Home standards and only then would we sign off on that work.
From our amazing bathrooms to high end cabinetry for laundry and professional home office we continue to be delighted with every aspect of our home. We have built projects homes before and there is NOTHING like dealing direct with the builder. The buck stops with him. Darren and his team take ownership of every issue and ensure seamless coordination for the client. The Kennedy Homes Team simply does not allow substandard work on their sites or homes. From our floor joists to windows and doors and bricks to Tiles, fantastic Air Con and our bespoke design, manufacture and installation of our cabinetry, the companies Kennedy Homes uses for their work are of the highest standard.
Everyone who comes to visit our home is in awe of the standards of workmanship, design quality and the attention to detail. We wanted a high end quality build with high ceilings on upper and lower floors as well as tiling to ceiling in bathrooms- Kennedy homes arranged these for us at cost without massive builder’s mark-ups! Darren was easy to deal with and nothing at all was a problem or concern we felt COMPLETELY at ease all the time and secure knowing our very expensive project was being constructed to a very high standard by trades who really took pride in their work and ON TIME!
Kennedy Homes finished our house in just 4 months and for a project more than 400sqm that was incredible. Darren is on top of every detail, supply and supplier and is respected by them as well which makes dealing with them a pleasure. Darren was able to do things for us to ensure our home was move in ready which we never expected from a builder. We consider him not only to be a fabulous builder but a good friend one with whom we would have no hesitation in building with again.
If you’re thinking about Building DEFINATELY give this Company a call. We were pretty worried about the idea of Building with all the negative things we’ve heard about the process and quality with some Project Builders. But this build has been pretty bloody easy. Kennedy Homes is easy to deal with, easy to contact, easy to get along with, there were no hidden extra costs and if we needed something changed (which was nothing major) they were happy to do so. Definitely a good quality builder.
Kennedy Homes is who we build through and we would definitely build with this company again. The whole journey was very easy and enjoyable. We were able to select everything we wanted in the house and design the house to how we wanted it to be. Everyone who played a part in building our home was brilliant. Nothing was ever too much to ask and they were terrific to deal with. Kennedy Homes went above and beyond to deliver a beautiful home. I highly recommend Kennedy Homes for their competitive price and tremendous quality homes they produce with no extras at the end.
Recently my partner and I built our first home and can honestly say it was a fantastic experience thanks to Kennedy Homes. Having never built a house before we didn’t have much of an idea what we needed to be looking for. Kennedy Homes helped us every step of the way from selecting the right block of land to handing over the keys. We designed our house from scratched to have it exactly the way we wanted. The whole process was simple and easy from start to finish, if you had any questions or weren’t sure on something Kennedy Homes were only too happy to help. There were no hidden costs or extras that come later on you knew from the start the exact end price. The quality of work and finished product is exceptional; I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants an outstanding home.
We have had Kennedy Homes build our last two homes for us, and we are glad that we did. Making the decision to build our first new home from scratch was a concerning situation for us with so many questions and uncertainty, but your company guided us through beautifully. We were impressed obviously because we had your company build our second new home a few years later. The whole process on both of our builds were very professional and were completed with our designs and expectations in mind. We want to thank all your staff and trades for such a wonderful building experience on both houses. We now highly recommend Kennedy Homes to our close friends and family. Thanks again for the amazing homes that have been built for us and we will look forward to another new design soon.
Sandy & I had the pleasure of building with the Kennedy Homes team. We had built before and had a very good idea about what we thought we wanted both in a house and a builder. From past experience, we researched builders in the area before narrowing the field and meeting with the ones that made the short list.
From the start, we felt we had made the right choice when we met with Kennedy Homes and they took the time to walk us through his ‘no surprises’ style of doing business. You know from the start what the build is going to cost so there is no overspend. The challenge of designing your home was made easy with his team listening to what you wanted and working with you to achieve this. They considered so much more than Block and home size in the design phase which we found to be refreshing.
The team in general were great to work, providing open and honest feedback along with suggested solutions to ensure the build is everything you want. They work with you and encourage you to be involved. For us that aspect was where Kennedy Homes excelled. After listening to building horror stories from people who did not build with Kennedy Homes, we know we made the right choice with Kennedy Homes and there team. Should we build again, it will be an easy decision to contact them.
Kennedy Homes will also go the extra mile and fight for the result you want. We were extremely grateful for the time he put negotiating with the council and town planners. It was there drive that finally achieved the sign off we wanted.
The workmanship and finish of the house was exceptional giving us a finished product that was everything we dreamed and hoped for but it did not finish there. The follow up and support after the build is finished, separates Kennedy Homes from the norm. Being able to contact them for advice and support is as important as the build itself. Sandy and I are so thankful we opted to build with Kennedy Homes.
Thank you, to the Kennedy Homes team!!
Kennedy Homes got recommended to us by a friend and from the first time we contacted Darren, he has gone above and beyond to help us. He built us a beautiful home within our budget. He kept in touch throughout the whole build. If we were to build again we would definitely go through Kennedy Homes again. I would highly recommend Kennedy Homes to anyone who is looking for a builder.
After living & working on the road for 15 years we were more than ready to settle down. Our biggest problem was finding a builder who we could trust as we would not be around for the build. Fortunately, we saw a home built by Kennedy Homes & contacted Darren & it was definitely the right decision. We put our trust in Darren & his wonderful team.
We knew exactly what the house would cost & all inclusions including levelling of the block. Darren was very easy to deal with, flexible, helpful (as we had never built before), friendly & professional. Kennedy homes kept in constant communication with us by phone & email, sending us pictures of all the stages. In person we only saw the slab then the finished product, but we couldn’t have been happier.
We would definitely recommend Kennedy homes to any one building a new house.
The real estate agent said ‘Kennedy Homes. Talk to Darren Kennedy, I’ve seen his work”
We had been driving throughout the Sunshine Coast hinterland looking at land.
Winding in and out of country paths and back roads we’d been over a year looking for somewhere we felt could be home. We were almost despairing when we found the place we wanted to be planted.
While the broker and banks did their thing and the solicitors did their bit, we looked at house plans – lots of house plans – and builders, quite a few. But really they were just sales people payed to get signatures, best friends all of a sudden but really just wanting another deal.
Our estate agent at Ray White, Wamuran – Jose – suggested we talk to Darren – the actual builder, not just someone talking about it – living and working in the same community where most of his extended family live.
Darren sat at OUR kitchen table as we talked with hm of what we wanted in a home and let us know of his own high conduct (on the job) expectations for his workers. We had several visits with Darren’s draftsman along with a stream of emails and messages back and forth – we had a few upgrades and changes to our plans. Our house literally extended over the course of a month or so. Darren just waited till we were settled, and then he made it happen. I mean, like, we were able to choose the appliances AND the bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
So now, we’ve been in our new home for a year. We were so impressed with the house and the professionalism of the finish from the start, I knew I couldn’t do a review at the time and be objective. We’ve had friends walk through our new home, as you do, and fall in love with it all. One enthusiast reckoned he’d “never seen anything this good on ‘The Block’.”
One year on we’re really enamoured with our home and thankful to Darren and his Kennedy Homes team for their attention to detail. An investment for a life time and not just a project home full of someone else’s ideas. Such an advantage working with the builder and not just a go between.
