I was very happy with the general process and found our consultant very helpful, keeping me informed and updated with the progress of the planning and design.
Our contracts manager was professional and supportive right through the build, he was always available, answering my phone calls andkept me up to date with everything. He went out of his way to make the whole process as smooth and stress free as possible. He is a real asset to your business.
I had only one meeting with the architectural designer at the beginning of the process and found him helpful and informative and I really appreciated the weekly administration teams updates.
The quality of the build has exceeded my expectations and I am really enjoying my new home. The delays were unfortunate and completely out of everyones control.
Overall I was impressed with the professionalism of the tradespeople in general.

To the team at Today Homes
We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the team at Today Homes. You stuck with us through a very difficult time over the last three or four years after the earthquakes. We cannot speak highly enough of the support in the early planning days from Dean, Angela and Shaun. You were always there with solutions with the difficulties that we encountered along the way.
The team that assisted us from the time the contract was handed to Today Homes couldn’t be faulted.
Thank you to our builder and all the sub-contractors for the excellent workmanship on our new home. They are a very skilled group of people who were always willing to stop and chat and made our visits very enjoyable. We did appreciate talking with them.
What a team! What a Company!

Our experience with Today Homes, from the initial meetings with our New Home Consultant and the designer, through negotiations with insurance people, to the building and handover of our new house was very positive.
Our small, L-shaped property presented some design challenges, but the architectural designer came up with a clever design that maximised the site's potential and also accommodated the changes that we wanted to make to the original 2-storey house. We were able to meet with the New Homes Consultant and the Designer on a number of occasions during the design phase to tweak the plans until they met our requirements.
Our Project Manager did a fantastic job of managing the build process. He chose a builder who had experience of tricky 2-storey builds and who did a great job. He communicated well with us, keeping us up to speed with what was happening, working through issues that arose unexpectedly (and that were sometimes beyond his control), responding quickly to any questions we had, and keeping the project on schedule.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Today Homes to others, or to use them again ourselves - if we were ever in the unlikely position of needing a new house!
Jo and Brendon
This is just a little something to say a HUGE thank you for building us such a wonderful house. We are so grateful for all you have done.
Even right back when I phoned you at the start and you said you’d come to me because I had little children!
You are all fantastic and we feel so lucky to have such a lovely home!
Happy Christmas and stay safe.
I thought I would drop you note to say how impressed I have been with the building of my house with Today Homes.
What can one say but Fantastic and what a team. From start to finish I was kept Informed of the whole process from concept to design to build to finish, your project manager had a detailed progress plan to completion and what was said to happen on a particular date happened, give or take a day and nothing was ever a problem and if it was, it was quickly sorted.
Other people I have spoken to have said that they don’t receive such a detailed progress report from there building firm, even your receptionist sent regular weekly updates as to what was happening to the house that week, but you guys were so efficient it had already started before I got the updates.
The builder was such a friendly guy and the new homes consultant was always good to talk to. Even the subcontractors all spoke highly of Today Homes, and to be honest whatever system Today homes uses, all the other building firms should adopt too!
I have even spoken to other people who have built with Today Homes and they all say the same thing “They would build again with Today Homes”
P.S I work part time for a high end security firm and our motto is that The strength of the team is each individual member, and the strength of each member is the team. I certainly believe Today Homes has that same strength.

I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for being involved with the building of my new home.
I am so lucky that Today Homes built my new home as I could not have got a better building company.
From the first time I spent time with you, till finish, Today Homes have been so good to deal with, and I don’t feel it has been stressful dealing with Today Homes.
Communication has always been frequent and any questions I had along the way were always answered promptly. All the sub contractors I had dealings were also really good to deal with.
During the rebuild I had an email every week, letting me know where things were at and what was coming up - this was really good. I have heard so many stories from people who have built with other companies where there was a great lack of communication and many delays.
I would strongly recommend Today Homes to anyone wanting to build. So thank you (and for your cheerful weekly updates) to all those behind the scenes people who have all done a great job
Ange and Rob
We have recently had our new home built by Today Homes and we just wanted to acknowledge the wonderful work by your staff.
Firstly I would like to acknowledge the great work done on the QS side by Brendon. Nothing was a problem and he helped make things easy by making all accounts clear and easy to understand – which is quite a task on a build with credits and debits along the way and a few variations. John also did a great job on the plans and was very accommodating and helped us build what we really do think is our perfect house – he made some suggestions in the design which helped make it better than it would have been without his great advice.
Lastly but certainly not least is Lyndon, your contracts manager. He deserves a medal. What a great employee you have there. He honestly went way above and beyond to help us with our build and we can’t speak highly enough about him. Our house was a rebuild which in itself did make the whole process quite stressful. Today Homes really helped us as we had never been through the build process before and the team was a fantastic help.
Could you please pass on our sincere thanks to your team. I do apologise that I haven’t written this sooner but life does sometimes get in the way but I would really like to convey our sincerely thanks to everyone involved in our build especially Lyndon.
My sister has also built with Today Homes over the same period (Jo-anne & Grant) and I know that they also praise the great work. We have been recommending Today Homes to all that ask how our build went and would absolutely use Today Homes again if rebuilding.
We do sincerely appreciate all that Lyndon and your team have done.
Ann and Robin
Robin and I would like you to pass on a big thank you to all the team at Today Homes involved in our rebuild. We are so happy to be in our new home for Christmas with our family from the UK. People that visit us are very impressed and very complimentary of our new home.
Please pass on our thanks to all involved with the building of our new home from beginning to end. If ever we have a chance to build again we would choose Today Homes without a doubt.
Ann and Robin
Chloe & Nick
Second build with Today Homes and we couldn't fault you! Thank you for another awesome easy build. You have an incredible team! I will be recommending you to anyone who will listen. We absolutely love our new home. thank you Ang, Lyndon, Hamish and Brendon.
Caroline and Nigel
We continually sing the praises of Today Homes and recommend at any and every opportunity. Our experience with the build is that it went like clock work and weekly update mirrored what had been planned to happen. It was stress free and when it came to a small number of things at the end that we needed addressed its was easily remedied and again stress free.
We have been so pleased they had suggested a drop down ladder to utilise the space in the upstairs gable of the garage - one of the best things. The kitchen joiners and installers were wonderful to work with - especially with additional ideas and did an excellent job.
The builder - so easy to work with and again excellent work. The building site was always kept tidy. Everyone on the job are super nice people all the trades and they sing the praises of working with Today Homes as well. Right to the end with the cleaners coming in they spoke only of good things being employed to do this work as well.
Lyn and Wally
Would you please convey to the management, staff, the builder and all subcontractors that were involved in the build of our Rolleston home - thanks. After living in the same house for 48 years the boss finally prised me out.
From the time we walked into your display home we were impressed, not only with the show homes, but by the staff.
With all the bad things one hears about builders we were pleased that we chose Today Homes as our builder. To have a new house built and the only maintenance that was required to fix after we moved in was adjust the hinges on the front door was bloody amazing! Especially compared to other builds I had heard about going on and on. This just proves the standard of your contractors.
We have lived in the house for just over a year and are very happy, none more so than Lyn. We wish you well for the future in the building industry and will have no hesitation to recommend your company to all.
Thank you for making our build such an easy and pleasant experience.
After my home was deemed a rebuild I am delighted I chose Today Homes as my builder. Right from the beginning it has been straightforward. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Angela Porter and Brent Smith for making the process so easy, and for their professionalism and ease of communication. Thanks too to all the excellent tradesmen and contractors you use.
I have no hesitation in recommending Today Homes to other prospective home builders.
Roz & Russ
We are very happy with our first brand new home and love living here.
Building with Today Homes has been the right choice for us and we would feel comfortable recommending Today Homes. If we were to build again we would use them again.
Mark & Alison
To Today Homes and all your talented sub contractors. Just two small words to express so much gratitude - thank you. Just a note to thank you all so much for our beautiful new home. It's perfect. We absolutely love it. The comfort and ease of living has changed our lives! Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved.
Mike and Angie
Deciding to have a home built by Today Homes has proved to be one of the best decisions we have ever made. Right from the very beginning when we visited their show home and met their sales consultant, who was informative and helpful. He listened to our requirements and noted details and within 48 hours we had a draft plan which matched our specification. It made the decision to buy pretty straight forward.
We subsequently were helped through the whole process of confirming our requirements and choosing the details. It was a seamless series of meetings with suppliers and fitters until every wish was in place.
We met with our project manager who was to be our point of contact and he ran through the time table for the build. The build itself was a series of well-planned stages which we were able to observe as things progressed and Today Homes emailed us a progress report at the end of every week during the five-month build. We also had regularly scheduled meetings on site with the project manager to discuss progress.
The house was beautifully finished, exactly to our requirements and on time, the whole process from the beginning to end was without drama or stress. There were no delays or unforeseen problems, for us, a great experience.
Arran and Jayne
The process was smooth and easy!
Our new home consultant was always very approachable and their to answer our questions and made us feel valued as first home buyers.
The project manager kept us up to date with the build and willingly came on site to talk us through the next stage off the build - friendly and approachable. The builder also working weekends to speed up the rebuild for us.
Weekly emails from the Today Homes admin team and working with our mortgage broker made us feel like we weren’t just another number!
Overall the build process was smooth and easy and we were tested like valued clients from the first time we waled into the show home, right to completion of our home.
We would recommend Today Hones to all first home buyers! Thank you for our amazing first home.
