I still Marvel at the Attention to Detail
Steve and Sandy Kerr and their dedicated team built my dream home for me in 2017/2018. My late father who was involved in the building industry always said to me “if you ever build a home engage Steve Kerr” so the decision was an easy one.
This was my first ever building experience and from the initial consultation to the final handover I was made to feel very much part of the team and to this day I miss my regular trips to the site to visit ‘the boys’.
I’ve been living in my home for 2 months and I still marvel at the attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout the house. A very big thank you to all those wonderful and dedicated people who made this past 18 months a memorable experience for me.
Steve and his fabulous team were rewarded by winning the 2018 HIA Home Of The Year.
Our Best Decision was our First Decision to Select a Quality Builder
Our aging fibro house sited on a small corner block on the hill at Kingscliff had served us well over our many expatriate years but it was time to demolish and rebuild so we could fully enjoy retirement with our family and friends. Top of our wish list was a quality finish and Steve Kerr Homes delivered beyond our expectations.
We now thoroughly enjoy our new three level house which fulfills our five main desires:
- to have ‘apartment’ style living on the mid level (includes laundry and line),
- to maximize 270 degree views of Dreamtime Beach and the Hinterland (top level bar)
- to recognise we are aging (lift incorporated)
- to provide ground level interdependency for visiting family and friends (kitchenette/sliding privacy doors)
- to incorporate some wow-factor styling (sweeping internal circular staircase/both both polished concrete and natural wood floors/shadow lines/blinds to shield from fierce setting sun/large copper feature panels).
Looking back on our home building experience we have no doubt that our best decision was our first decision to select a quality builder. Many thanks Steve and your crew.
Thanks again for a great experience.
The Build “Should be a Fun Experience”
In our first meeting, Steve told us the build “should be a fun experience”. We seriously doubted that could be the case (given some of the horror stories we had heard from friends who had gone through the process) but he was right! We firmly believe that Steve is the best builder in the region for a high-quality home. There were many times throughout the process that we said to each other that we were so happy with our choice to go with Steve.
We had complete trust in his judgement, he was many steps ahead of any decisions that needed to be made and we had full confidence that Steve and his team were doing their utmost to give is the best quality home possible. Since moving in, countless people have commented on the high quality of workmanship in our house and we feel so privileged to live here. We cannot thank Steve, Aaron and the team enough for building us our dream home and think anyone building would be lucky to have them as their team.
I’ve Been Proud to Work in Association with Steve Kerr Homes for Over a Decade
I’ve been proud to work in association with Steve Kerr Homes for over a decade, and together we have created some of the Tweed Coast’s signature homes. Steve’s impeccable attention to detail ensures that he consistently delivers homes of uncompromising quality.
Over those years, Steve has sourced the coasts best tradesmen and suppliers. The results speak for themselves. An Architect’s work is only as good as the end product and much of my own recognition through industry awards and published works is a direct reflection of Steve’s commitment to excellence.
I look forward to delivering many more outstanding homes throughout the Tweed in the coming years with Steve and his dedicated crew.
Most Rewarding Construction Process That I Have Been Involved With
The project valued at over $3.5 million required effective management and site process, and a high standard of execution to be satisfactorily completed to the client’s high level of expectation. Steve Kerr Homes has readily achieved those requirements within the stated limits of time and cost, greatly adding to the success of the project.
In the periods before and following construction, Steve has always been available to respond as required, and willing to offer a high level of service to the client.
As the client has expressed to you, and I am able to confirm, they are literally thrilled with the process, timeliness and quality achieved in the construction of their new home. For my part, I can offer that this project has been the most rewarding construction process that I have been involved with – and I attribute most of that to Steve’s efforts.
All of Our Expectations Have Been Met
Steve Kerr has completed our dream home and all of our expectations have been met including quality, reliability, meeting budget and time, providing valuable input throughout the project from his experiences from building within the area.
Not only have we found Steve Kerr’s direct team a pleasure to deal with but all of his contractors follow the same quality and expertise that Steve has delivered throughout the project.
With over 20 years working in the building industry, I have never come across a more dedicated team of tradesmen who take pride in delivering a quality project for the client.
“The Best Builder on the Tweed Coast”
Steve Kerr was recommended to us many times as “the best builder on the Tweed Coast”.
Comments we received from previous clients were invariably impressive as were the houses he had built. On reflection, choosing Steve Kerr Homes to build our house was the best decision we made.
Steve is a person of the highest integrity and a builder of the highest quality. He and his team were committed, professional, honest and transparent and at all times unfailingly courteous to us.
Steve was always available to discuss any concerns.
His meticulous attention to detail from day one to completion filled us with great confidence and we now own a beautiful home on the Tweed Coast built to our total satisfaction.
If we were ever to build again, Steve Kerr would be the first person we would call.
The Quality of his Work is a Reflection of the Pride That He Takes In What He Does
Our current home just completed for us by Steve Kerr Homes is the third project that we have completed using Steve as the builder.
Susan and I have both been involved in the building industry over the past 40 years and are therefore very aware of how difficult some members of the industry can be.
This is definitely not the case with Steve and Sandy. They have both always respected our requirements and worked with us to achieve a positive outcome.
Steve is always thinking ahead of where the project is up to, so each section is organised in advance. His subcontractors and suppliers know when they are required on site and respect Steve’s program because he is organised.
The quality of his work is a reflection of the pride that he takes in what he does and Steve’s enthusiasm for each project has made each of them enjoyable to be a part of.
Your Professional Workmanship was Fantastic
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your team for the incredible job you’ve done.
It was an enormous relief to Simone and myself to find that we could talk so easily and comfortably to you about the progress of the house and also about the changes in the plans which occurred intermittently. One of the things we liked was the fact that you were personally nearly always at the building site.
I was very happy and surprised to note that some of the changes didn’t automatically come with an extra cost.
I’ve had a number of visitors to the house who have commented on the building technique and the ‘finish’. I didn’t always know what they were talking about, but I want to say that your professional workmanship was fantastic.
It Could not Have Gone any Smoother
Our building experience with Steve Kerr was like a dream come true. It could not have gone any smoother or given us a better result. Steve was always on top of any queries and co-operated entirely with both the architect and ourselves.
We were interstate for the build with site visits only every month or two and we were never disappointed with the progress in our absence. All aspects were discussed either on our visits or by email when necessary.
The finished home still brings us joy whenever we spend time there and people still comment on the beautiful and neat finish. Superb finish actually, the attention to detail was very impressive.
I would not hesitate to recommend Steve as a builder for any project and would use him again if the need arose.
Attention to Detail
There is no question about Steve Kerr’s ability to build a very well built house, but it was Steve’s attention to detail, his work ethic of not cutting corners and his communication with us as clients that really impressed us.
Without doubt, we would use him again and would recommend him wholeheartedly.
The Finished Project Exceeded our Expectations
Steve Kerr, with his years of experience in building prestige homes on the Tweed Coast, was able to visualise how we wanted our house to look and feel on completion.
He made significant suggestions during the build which enhanced the final outcome.
The building process was well planned and well executed. We were consulted throughout.
The craftsmanship was top quality.
The finished project exceeded our expectations, thanks to Steve Kerr of Steve Kerr Homes.
The Quality of the Job is Outstanding
A short note to thank you and your team for the wonderful job you did on my house. The quality of the job is outstanding.
I particularly enjoyed your staff and the subbies – all good blokes and first class tradesmen.
I have been in the development business a long time and have never met a better team – it is a credit to you.
I will strongly recommend you to anyone wishing to build a good home.
