Valued Kapiti Client

When we left Wellington we were open minded about what we might find but never imagined it would be a beautiful new home.  We love it - we love the colours, flow, the lines, fittings, courtyards and having a place for everything.....and everything in its place!  Thank you all agin very much - not forgetting your builder and everyone that worked here.

The only negative is that you will probably won't get any repeat business.... we are hopefully here forever

Brilliant Service Again

Just wanted to say thanks again for your service.  We are the second owners of a home you built, yet you/your company continue to provide exceptional service in minor repairs and alterations, even though it is now six years since you finished building this house for its oringinal owners.  I appreciate your willingness to always take my phone calls on the few occasions I have needed to ask for your advice or assistance (not that our well-built home has needed much work!).

Another thanks, and hats off to Shane for his great manner and prompt, reliable service on your behalf in doing the "odd jobs" we have requested.  The fact that you stand behind your product and service in this way makes me very glad the house we bought was built by Progressive Homes!  I will always tell anyone who asks about our home that your service does'nt end with the home completion.

Kind Regards

"I'm so excited and trying to keep busy! We have so much enjoyed working with the Progressive Team.  You are always so welcoming and positive and find answers to any problems.  We would highly recommend Progressive Homes to any one contemplating building.  It has been such FUN."

"When you get to my age, there is very little that excits you, but what I can say is that I/we are very proud of what you have all achieved.  You have a wonderful professional network of competent operators.  It has taken a while and it has been a L O N G build, but the outcome is something that is quite spectacular and something we can all take pleasure in.  Chris and Adam are two very caring and capable builder's with personalities to match and what pleasure they have been to discuss outcomes with and be guided by."

Optimist Way, The Banks, Whitby

At the outset we purchased a section in "The Banks" subdivision in Whitby.  Initially we thought we wold have plans and specifications drawn up and then put out to tender with chosen building contractors.

We then went to a building seminar and after listening to the presentations we decided that "design and build" was the better option.  The presenter stressed the importance of using a contractor who we could trust and feel comfortable with, we should choose the "Design and Build" option.

Progressive Homes were very prominent in Whitby, so we decided to enquire about them with trades people "in the know".  We also approached people who had engaged Progressive Homes to build houses for them.

All our "checklist" enquires resulted in extremely favourable comments about Progressive Homes and their support team.

We approached Andrew Leslie and right from that first meeting we had a very open and comfortable relationship with Andrew.  We presented a broad outline of our "wish list" which was followed by Andrew engaging an excellent and experianced architect who provided us with a plan we liked.

The building process was an enjoyable and rewarding experiance.  All Andrew's support team were excellent to deal with as they always came back to us with sensible and "wow factor" ideas.

Every phone call, text or email to Andrew and his team was followed up by a prompt response.  We were well aware that "the team" were extremely busy with other clients, but not withstanding that our every contact and request was handled in a promt and professional manner.

The end result is that we have a new home that we love.  Andrew and his support team have produced a home that has exceeded our expectations - we are very very happy with the end result.

Dervan and Lyndsay Kelly - September 2015 

Andrew, Partners, Staff and Subcontractors - August 2015

Thank you all very much for all the work, ideas and patience you have put into the design, planning and construction of our new, spacious and warm house.  We are delighted with the result.

All the people we have been involved with during the process have been a delight to work with - articulate, helpful and patient.  It became obvious that the whole team were experianced and worked well together.  Both of us are civil engineers who previously had a house built for us 17 years ago, we have learned a lot watching what goes on throughout the process this time round and have thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

The designers have worked with us (and our budget) to come up with some great ideas - architect, kitchen designer, colour consultant and landscape designer.  They all talked to us, went away and subsequently came back with suggestions they were very close to ideal and when we said "you decide" or we didnt specify something the result always turned out to be fine with us.  This has applied to both the Progressive team and the subcontractors who you employ.  We have looked at each and said "Andrews people are good" on a number of occasions.

On the budgeting side you gave us a price and we said that would be fine but we were likely to want to spend more in two areas (kitchen and landscaping) and that was exactly what happened!  Thank you.

In summary you and your people knew what to do, got it done and moved on to the next tasks!  and when we reached the end of the path, we looked back at the overall timings and smiled about that too.

Andrew Leslie and the team at Progressive Homes built our home in 2014.  Andrew was hands on from the very start, he came on a site visit with us, he was involved with the plans and supplied complete pricing for the entire build prior to us fully committing to Progressive Homes.

We did not build a tradional house so it was imperative that we have an experiance project manager on board that we could trust fully.

Every telephone call or email we made to Andrew or his team was responded to and we were fully kept up to date on the process of the build.  We were equally impressed with his team of sub-contractors.

We have only been our home a short time but it feels like we are on holiday.  We love the final result.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew Leslie and Progressive Homes.

Sue and Jeff

Customers have a choice and we are delighted that we chose Progressive Homes as our preferred builder. Our decision was based on a strong personal recommendation from a trusted adviser along with completing our own due diligence, including checking out the work of several other respected master builders. Progressive Homes have a solid reputation for designing and building stunning, quality homes. From our very first meeting with Andrew, we knew that we could trust him to deliver our dream home. That trust was justified and rewarded. We know from previous experience that building a house can be stressful. Andrew and his team significantly reduced our stress by professionally managing the build process whilst coordinating our input at key stages during the build. Progressive Homes made it easy because everything could be done 'in-house' by their dedicated team including home design, appliances selection, window & flooring treatments, interior/exterior colour consultancy, landscaping, fencing and the mailbox. We even sourced our fantastic section from Andrew. Andrew was terrific to work with and delivered on all commitments made. We really appreciated his deliberate and ongoing focus on identifying relevant improvement opportunities to further enhance our home. Minor housekeeping issues were promptly remedied without question. Kerry's expert advice and guidance was absolutely critical because she ensured that our colour, flooring, drapes and tile choices were complimentary to Hamish's awesome design. We love our home and are very proud to be part of the Progressive Homes extended family.   Brian & Bernadine Cooze

Building with Progressive Homes was a fantastic experience. I had never built a house before and was a little worried about the effort it might entail to manage the process. Andrew and his team made the experience so easy from start to finish. I was based in Sydney when the deisgn work started. I gave Hamish a few likes/dislikes and he created a design just from one chat. I didn't have to change a thing. Then Andrew was able to create the dream for me. He was there the whole time making sure I was happy, that I didn't want any changes made, and that I had the best products for what I could afford. He always kept me updated with where things were at and he never slipped on his timeframes. He said I would be in by Christmas and I was. The quality and craftmanship is just outstanding. After this experience I will definitely be building again and it will be with Progressive Homes. I can't express enough how impressed I was with Andrew and his team's professionalism and can-do attitude. I highly recommend anyone building a house to go with Progressive Homes.  N Ainsworth

Everyone has been really impressed with the standard of finish and we are really proud of what you have produced for us.

John & Angela Baldwin

We chose Progressive Homes because after meeting Andrew we felt he understood our ideas. Our trust was well-placed and throughout the building process Andrew came up with great ideas which were stylish and didn't cost the earth. Progressive's hidden gem is Kerry who guided us through the colour selections (exterior and interior colours, joinery, floorings, wall tiles, kitchen, bathrooms) and made sure there were no regretted choices! Progressive looked after us from day one and made our building experience stress-free. We are really thrilled with the result.  Daryl Lock & Rochelle Roddick

We are so grateful for all you have done to help us into our new home. You have taken all the stress and organization and given us this beautiful new home.

Donna & Lyn Gemaries

We chose Andrew as our builder because:

  • His price was the lowest of all the builders who costed for us.
  • Our enquiries satisfied us that his workmanship was of the required standard.
  • Costings were itemised from a z of everything associated with building the house so we knew exactly that it was within budget.
  • Andrew came up regularly to Paraparaumu to ensure progress/quality of workmanship.
  • Minor problems associated with the project were dealt with quickly and without fuss.
  • All this resulted in trust between us and the company.

I have no hesitation recommending Progressive Homes for price, quality, and co-operation.

Brian Fahey & Joy Winnington

Andrew and Danielle were really patient while we worked with them to figure out what we wanted to build and then continued to give us the flexibility right through the build process to make sure that the home we ended up with is exactly what we wanted. We love our new home and would definitely build with Progressive Homes again.  Cameron Good

When you make a decision to buy a brand new home it is very exciting, unfortunately the reality is that a large proportion of the new homes available fail to even come close to meeting your expectations, that was until we walked into our new home that Andrew had just completed. We were immediately impressed with the quality of the Progressive Homes product and we considered the overall finish to be outstanding.

The keys to our house were handed over some days before our requested date and we're very happy.  This and other aspects of the whole house build from start to finish I believe are down to the project management style of manager Andrew Leslie.  His building knowledge, experiance, people skills-customers, contract workers and staff were fundamental to the great house we are in.  They were positive, helpful, proactive and professional.

The end product was a very well made and finished house to our requested design, by workman with pride in their work.  We are very impressed.

We are impressed and happy with our house and dealing with you all and would recommend Progressive Homes to any buyer of a new home anytime...
