Custom Designed Home, Leeston, Canterbury

Customer Testimonial December 2015

What were your main concerns or challenges that you faced before you chose to work with us?

We couldn't find a building company that would build us what we wanted and in our budget, they wanted us to compromise our wants to fit to their costs.

What changes and results were you aiming to achieve by building a new home?

To have a house suited to us, a house that was really warm, a house that would withstand an earthquake and one that was built in a quicker time frame.

What are the key successes and outcomes you have achieved since working with us?

Lots of people love our house and ask us who built your home, and we are proud to say "Genius Homes" and they are very intrigued with the process :)

What did you find the most outstanding about Genius Homes?

Our project manager was amazing and got us through a difficult site consent and made sure we got our home no matter what.

That the house came almost ready to move in. You designed my house just the way I had described and quickly made changes or additions as requested. I did not have the worry of getting consents from councils & Ecan. Receiving weekly progress reports was also really good.
