Thank you to the whole Austart team for getting my partner and I through our build!

Rhonda, Ruth and Charmaine were spectacular in assuring us they could deliver what we were after for our price without sacrificing quality and the points of the design which were import to us.

Thank you ladies for your professionalism and personality in going above and beyond to communicate and explain all the processes.

Thank you very much for building our new house within our limited time!!
We really appreciate you've done everything so quickly for us and built a lovely house with great ideas. We love the study nook, windows above the kitchen bench and the ceiling at the living areas, still a lot of work to do (fencing, pool landscaping etc) but it will be a lovely home.
Thank you very much

To Everyone at Austart
We could not thank you enough for our amazing first home.
We could not be happier with the process of the build, the communication and the end result of our home.

Thank you from all of us.

Dear Charmaine and Ruth,

I wish to express a BIG BIG thank you for the beautiful home you have built for me.

The quality of the finish is superb, built exactly to plan and on time and most importantly, on budget. I cannot be more contented nor cannot ask for more!

When pondering whether to buy Lot 576, I contacted several builders listed on Bluewater’s website to see what can be done with its irregular shape and my limited budget. Most replied with many concerns and I could feel some hesitation on their part on taking on my project unless the budget is drastically increased.

But Charmaine’s “can do” attitude and positive reply was the answer I was waiting for and although late at the starting line, Austart Homes surged ahead of the pack and never looked back. Trust is also important specially when you’re building 2,400 kms away and I immediately felt comfortable with Charmaine on the first email, and also with Ruth when the construction began. I will not think twice should I build another house in FNQ.

So thanks again guys and well done! I would definitely recommend AustartHomes to anyone wanting to build in Cairns.

All the best!

Thank you Austart Homes for building another high quality home for us. When we decided to build an investment property we knew we wanted to build again with Charmaine & Phill. The level of service we have received from Austart Homes in both our building experiences has been exceptional. Charmaine & Ruth are an amazing duo and have always gone above and beyond to ensure everything was done on time and done well! I loved choosing the design of the house – there are so many layouts to choose from & the selection of finishes is great too. The quality of the workmanship in both homes we built with Austart Homes has been excellent & we highly recommend Austart Homes to anyone wanting a fantastic home, whether to live in or as an investment property.

Dear Charmaine, Ruth, Phil and the rest of the awesome team,

Where do we start! This is our 3rd Austart home and once again you’ve come through with shining colours. We have been extremely happy with your customer service especially Ruth’s updates – thanks again Ruth. We cannot fault the efficiency with responding to our email requests with having matters attended to – thank you to Charmaine and Ruth. Now to talk about value for money. The home you have presented to us is of top quality and you cannot get this from any other builder in Cairns! We would truly recommend Austart Homes to anyone thinking of building a new home. You won’t need luck as it comes with the home!
