My experience building homes was non-existent. I had owned homes previously, however they were newly built and walk-in with no stresses. I have heard about the building experience from family and friends and many said it was time consuming, stressful and the post build (after sales service) was poor. I investigated many local Townsville builders and had many options available to me. Some were pushy and others quite restrictive in options. I chose Greg from Doble Homes and I have had nothing but a positive experience. He and his team were welcoming, approachable, easy to maintain contact with, honest in their advice and flexible in the options. Whilst I had been investigating the buy or build option for about a year (during 2011), it ended-up that at the end of 2011 the deadline was quite tight due to changed circumstance. As a result, the build time was approximately 5 months. When I made the decision to move, Greg assured me it would get done on time. He delivered.From the outset, Greg was always approachable. The advantage with Doble Homes was that I was dealing directly with the person in charge and who was actually doing the construction. Other well-known builders did not offer that luxury. I did hear from people who had built previously that the decisions such as design, colours, tiles, carpets, cupboards, vanities etc was time consuming and difficult. At Doble Homes, Rachael had it all set-up. The system was organised, procedural and transparent. Together we visited the suppliers and talked directly to them and selected everything. I was never alone. It was surprisingly smooth and quick. The end result was fantastic and I have had positive comments from friends who have visited. Some of them are in the building industry themselves (plasterers, electricians and concreters) and even they were complimentary of the quality and finish. In fact, I know that they have recommended Doble Homes to people looking to build, just by seeing the quality of my home.I was quite apprehensive and cautious at the start. Buying a home is a big decision, but building a home has so much more to it. Greg and his Team made the process comforting and at the times when I was concerned or confused about decisions, they guided me and were with me at every phase, and still are.Greg is not just my builder, I class him now as a friend.I recommend Greg and Doble Homes to any person thinking of building.
Having both worked in the building industry for some years we were apprehensive about building a new home. But our experience with Doble Homes was nothing positive. We loved every moment of the experience from seeing the plan for the first time to getting the keys. Greg , Annette and the team were wonderful.
Being first home builders/buyers we were excited to begin our new home journey and, from the outset, and throughout the building process, the amazing team at Doble Homes were supportive and (very!) patient. Although on a strict budget, we still expected a quality build, and they have delivered nothing less. The team maintained open and clear communication, and were always helpful in answering our million questions, and quick in having any potential issues resolved. We would not hesitate in recommending Doble Homes to friends and family, and are grateful for all their hard work in building our beautiful, new home!
The building process with Doble Homes was stress free and enjoyable. Greg was extremely professional throughout the whole process, and made the experience of building a home for the first time memorable. Greg was always willing to help and went the extra mile – nothing was ever too difficult.Greg takes pride in the houses that he builds, and it reflects in his work. I am so impressed with the quality and standard of my house, and I have had numerous people comment on its exceptional finish.I would not hesitate in recommending Doble Homes as a builder, and Greg will definitely be my first call when I am looking at building again.
Nothing but praise is in order for Doble Homes. You often hear ‘horror’ stories of couples building their first home, but this was not the case for us! Building with the Doble family was excellent – It was such a breeze. Greg and Kas provided around the clock services for us, we worked a normal 7 till 5 job so it did get difficult to find the time to get to sign papers and discuss plans but Greg and Kas made it so easy for us. Being a family owned and operated business you could see that caring for their client was evident!Greg was great to talk to during the construction of our house. We could only describe Greg’s organisational skills as impeccable, when we were promised we would be in before our Engagement Party he made it happen. As the house was being built, our decision to go with Doble Homes became more and more justified with the ease, efficiency and quality at each stage of the project.We would like to thank Greg and Kas for their professionalism, kindness and understanding. Not only have they built us a quality house but they have built us our home.When we go to build again Doble Homes will be the ones to do it. We would not hesitate in giving anyone their number or even our number for that matter. We wish Doble Homes all the best with their future projects.
Thank you so much Doble Team! We are so in love with our first home and the kids think it’s pretty great too! Very Grateful for all the hard work and effort from the whole team.
Professional and Flexible, Client focused, and willing to listen to ideas from clients.
Thank-you Greg for building exactly what we wanted. A huge thank-you to Annette for being so patient and caring during the process. The quality and service was outstanding. We cannot fault anything. Definitely recommend Doble Homes to build your home.
