Having been in the real estate and development industry for the past 15 years I have built a number of investment properties via a number of different builders with mixed results. When it came to building our latest property, the challenge of a very steep site and a very customised property, meant we wanted to make sure the builder was right for the job. After interviewing a number of builders, we started to realise that because we didn’t have an easy job the majority of them did not seem confident or capable of delivering...enter Sovereign.
Our initial meeting with the Managing Director David Savietto was very reassuring, as he came to the site and never once did he say that the job would be too hard, which gave us a lot of confidence. From there, we had numerous meetings with the planning and sales departments lead by Greg Barndon and they came up with solutions to all of the tricky aspects of the site with a design that looked first class.
Throughout the building process we had many interactions with Sovereign and we were never discouraged or told that we couldn’t make some minor modifications along the way, which was a pleasant change to many of the other builders we had used in the past. The trades that Sovereign used were also very professional and often gave us some minor suggestions, which meant that the finished product was something that we were very proud of and was also very functional.
We will definitely use Sovereign for our next project and look forward to working with their team again in the near future.
