Why build with us?

Often the greatest success stories start from the most humble beginnings.

That’s certainly true of Far North Queensland’s Austart Homes, built on determination, hard work and a life-long passion for construction.
Phillip Matthews was just five years old and living in a commission housing area in Victoria when he fell in love with watching houses being built.

He believes if you think positive, and don’t allow yourself to be afraid, you can do what you set out to do!
He moved to Queensland and launched Newstart Homes, which was the fastest growing home building company in Australia in 1994.
It was during this era he met his now wife, Charmaine, who had also been dreaming up dream homes since she was 10yrs of age.

Charmaine is a qualified and Licenced Building Designer and is now a Licenced Builder.

Together they have more than 70 years combined experience in the joinery, building and architectural industries, and Philip has built more than 3200 homes across Queensland and New South Wales.

They are a building company that’s here to stay, and have a proven track record.

Whether it’s a first home, dream home or investment property, Charmaine, Phillip and their professional team can design and build to suit any budget and lifestyle. And with over 40 designs available for clients to choose from and customise, there is a home to suit everyone.

There personalised, hands-on policy ensures everyone involved in your project knows just what your needs and desires are, so your expectations are met.

They can also modify there designs to truly capture the uniqueness of your visions. Maybe you already have plans of your own they can help develop into a reality for you. Anything is possible with Austart Homes.
