We have been so impressed with Emerald Developments and their service. Every single touch point has exceeded our expectations. We had been through the house plan customisation process with two builders before Emerald (and paid them a non-refundable deposit), but the first builder couldn't get the plans anywhere close to right and the second builder promised us everything in our budget and then quoted six figures higher than our budget. We were just about ready to sell our land and give up on building when we went to Emerald Development's display home at the North Harbour display and Cheryl took meticulous notes of what we wanted. We wanted a multi-generational home and we took one of Emerald Development's standard house layouts and made a few simple changes and we were able to achieve the perfect layout for us. There were no silly costs added just to move a wall here or there, everything was done based on what would actually cost the builder to change and anything that wouldn't cost to change just got done. Cheryl made suggestions throughout this process that really helped us work out what we should spend our budget on, and what could be done after market. Once construction started these guys didn't muck around. The house went up so fast and I was relieved to see the roof on before major wet weather arrived. There were no surprise variations, in fact the only variations we had at all were at our request, other than a driveway widening which was suggested to us as an option and we accepted. No hidden costs whatsoever. My husband and I are both in the construction industry so we have seen our fair share of cowboy builders. We were really nervous about getting a builder we could trust. We have found Matthew and his team to be honest and helpful, and happy to discuss any concerns we had along the way. Every Friday we have had a construction progress update, usually with photos and each week we are reassured at the progress. No build goes perfectly but where there were any issues Matthew had already noticed them and had the solution on the way when we raised it. He was even happy for us to have our own QA inspector do checks throughout the build process and anything raised was dealt with straight away without any push back. We would often drive past the build on weekends and see trades working on our home, and our place is on track to be delivered approx 5 months ahead of the contract completion date. We couldn't be happier. Everyone told us building would be really stressful but we have had zero stress throughout the whole process.

Building our first home through Emerald currently. Process thus far has been fantastic, all the ladies in the office I've dealt with have been nothing but helpful. We have Matt as our supervisor and he's been fantastic, has a good eye for quality. The build itself is progressing quickly and as a Tradie I'm impressed with the fit and finish. The frame is straight and square, and studs are planed/ packed so all the Gyprock looks fantastic including the ceiling. Certainly leagues above the volume builders in quality.

Emerald Developments have been such a joy to work with. From the moment we stepped into their display home, we've been very impressed with their exceptional customer focus and high quality of work. Our build has progressed so quickly and smoothly. The team have kept us up to date with their weekly construction updates and photos, which makes it feel so exciting as first home owners to see it really coming together! Emerald really practices what they preach and we would recommend them to anyone over a bigger builder.

Building my home with Emerald has been a stress free, effortless process from start to finish. From Cheryl the lovely sales lady, to the wonderful office staff and owners Matt and Lia, I’ve felt at ease throughout the whole process. Would highly recommend Emerald Developments to anyone wishing to build a lovely, modern home, fantastic local company!
This is the first time I’ve built a new home and I could not be happier. From the very start of the process talking to the sales team to start the building journey it has been such a pleasure. The team are friendly, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable and made the whole building process wonderful. From great communication with any unforeseen changes, to weekly general updates with pictures to keep us in the loop of how the build was progressing. Their attention to detail has been great with them fixing any minor imperfections spotted in the final walkthrough quickly, handing over an amazing new family home. I can not recommend emerald developments enough and if the day comes that I am in ever building another home I will be choosing them again.
