Dear Sir/Madam,

Central Coast Luxury Homes recently completed the build of our beautiful home in East Gosford. From the start of the process, when receiving quotes from builders, we found John and the team to be very professional and attentive. There were some delays from our side initially and John kept in contact throughout the time. The quote was detailed and well presented, with all of the information required.Once construction began, Mitch and the team kept everything under control. There were some delays and hurdles to get over, mainly due to the very difficult site. Our block is on a very steep slope and backs onto bush, so had to comply with strict bush-fire regulations.

John, Anthony and Mitch were very careful to source the correct products, so there were no issues with compliance and to meet our needs, as a family. John came to us with solutions, not problems, which made the process much less stressful than expected. The Central Coast Luxury Homes team were courteous and respectful at all times. Our neighbours had nothing but praise for all of the team.

We have been in our new home now for a couple of months and had no issues with the quality of work or the finishes. We love our home and have already recommended Central Coast Luxury Homes to our friends.

With kind regards,

Siobhan and Mark Campbell-Smyth

Dear John,

My Wife and I would like to express our thanks for a job well done. We both were very impressed by your professionalism from the very start of the project. It was so amazing as it continued right through to the very end. Everything was well explained and made very transparent. Your professional advise saved us money. At no stage did we feel anxious or unsure. Any changes we discussed, you made us sign off on these. We loved it. It meant there were no discrepancies afterward.

We also were very impressed with your staff and sub-contractors. All were very polite and professional in their own field. What a great Concreter!! Your man Mitch; what a great man to have on the job. Your other workers, whose names I can’t recall, all extremely polite and very good on the tools. Loved the “Can-do” attitude, approachability and professionalism. Your workers attributes and approach to the job ultimately reflect in a very positive image for your company.

John, I personally was impressed with your “go, go – don’t wait” attitude. You were always thinking a step ahead and delegating like a true managing director. Good on ya! My wife and I are very pleased with your work and would have no hesitation in recommending Central Coast Luxury Homes to our family and friends.

All the best.

Kind regards,

Peter and Sharon

We are pleased to be asked to give a reference on Central Coast Luxury Homes (John Avis, Managing Director) who built 2 units for us at 90 The Esplanade, Ettalong Beach.

We were firstly recommended to talk to John Avis by our surveyor Glen Cahill from Cahill & Cameron Consulting Surveyors, West Gosford, as they believed Central Coast Luxury Homes were very good builders and that they could recommend them.

As we have done several developments previously, we knew how important it was to try and choose the right builder before you start. The choice was plentiful and the job we had was difficult.

After going through the final decision period, we decided to use John, as he was prepared to sit in and advise when we were talking to our Architect or the Engineer and Certifier. This made it easier for us when making decisions that can be costly if the wrong decisions are made. This process took time and we found we gained a lot of knowledge and learnt to understand our job more fully.

As we had a small site, we could see in the very early stages this job was going to be hard. We also soon realised that John had a very good team on his side and a very approachable and competent lot of guys and they all seemed like they enjoyed working for Central Coast Luxury Homes.

The job and site were never a problem to them, as they proceeded cautiously when necessary always making sure everything was ok. We soon accepted their ability and this left us very confident and we were able to inspect less often as time and progress moved on.

We do take this opportunity to say that we are very pleased we chose the Central Coast Luxury Homes, as we believe we now have a very professional job that has been well built and finished to the highest standard and we are proud to say this is our building built by Central Coast Luxury Homes, Kincumber.

I have known John Avis (Central Coast Luxury Homes) for several years now.

I met John during the construction of a house that I designed in Terrigal. He built that house for Mr. & Mrs. Osborne. He introduced himself to me when he had won the contract for the job. We spoke regularly about certain aspects of the construction of this particular project.

During that time I found John to be an open minded, forward thinking person who cares greatly about what he does. He has shown me that he has a very thorough knowledge of construction, particularly on jobs that are situated on difficult sites, as this one is. The quality of workmanship is , in my opinion, is of the highest standard achievable.

In particulars he likes to keep everyone involved in the project, fully informed about what is happening at any time. This certainly makes for an easy flowing job with happy tradesmen and suppliers.

We have developed a good working relationship since the completion of that particular project and I have recommended John to several of my clients since then. I will also be recommending him to my clients in the future.

It affords me considerable pleasure of being given the opportunity of giving Central Coast Luxury Homes (John Avis) a reference

John Avis was contracted to commence building my house in February, 2007. He communicated closely with both my wife and I throughout the whole construction At various stages throughout the construction John detected errors in our architect’s drawings and in consultation with both my wife and I he was able to alter/modify the plans to ensure that time and money were not wasted.

John and his crew worked tirelessly throughout 2007 up to and including Christmas of that year. Their hard work and commitment resulted in my family and I moving into our house on 1 January, 2008. John’s fees and costs stayed within budget throughout the whole job.

We are very proud of our house and we realise that we would not have a house of this standard if it wasn’t for John Avis.

Since the house was completed (3 years ago) we have had 2 problems (a blocked drain and cracked render on one wall) which came under John’s warranty. On both occasions John had the relevant tradesperson at my house (within a couple of days) to fix the problem.

I have no hesitation in recommending John Avis as a very good home builder.

To Whom It May Concern:

Re: Central Coast Luxury Homes. Builders License number 143122c.

This statement is to confirm that John Avis from Central Coast Luxury Homes was responsible for the construction of several of our building designs. I have been associated with John and Central Coast Luxury Homes since 2001 when he approached my company to provide designs and plans.

Central Coast Luxury Homes have brought several of our designs to completion, with the owners and myself being more than happy with the final product. Engineering and architectural plans and specifications are always followed precisely and John’s knowledge of materials and building techniques along with his creative input is extremely valuable in ensuring the completed construction is both functionally and aesthetically pleasing. John is committed to ensuring the project is completed on schedule and to budget and he operates his company with enthusiasm, professionalism and integrity.

John has had a high degree of input during the design process of the projects we have been involved with and he demonstrates a comprehensive knowledge of council regulations and the fundamental Australian Standards and Building Code of Australia. Three of these projects were for the aged and disabled, which required a high degree of building knowledge, care and attention to detail.

I confirm that the finish and quality of the work undertaken by Central Coast Luxury Homes to be of the highest degree. I feel very confident that Central Coast Luxury Homes is more than capable of managing any project they consider and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to any home owner or property developer.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

My wife and I commissioned Mr John Avis from Central Coast Luxury Homes to build a new home on land we owned at Terrigal NSW.

The land and subsequent plans drawn for the property showed the challenges John faced were several, namely the site was steep, access difficult and the plans were of a radical design. John was the successful applicant of three builders.

During the time taken to build the home John and his team were
1.Very professional in the manner in which they applied their skills
2. Appropriate in time spent in meeting the high standards attached to the plans
3.Excellent in the level of communication given when discussing alterations and reasons for such.

During the work we could not have asked for a more meaningful relationship with John and his team, than we had. We are delighted with the house and all its features

We would have no hesitation in recommending John to any prospective clients, to use him as their builder.

East Gosford Early Learning

When choosing a builder for our 4th childcare centre our foremost thought was finding one we could trust to complete our project to a high standard using quality trades, as our past experiences often lacked all of these important aspects.

Central Coast Luxury Homes’ website appeared more professional than most and indicated to us that presentation, quality and attention to detail were valued. At this time a local surveyor recommended John Avis as an experienced, reliable builder. After months of considering quotes from several large and smaller constructions companies our decision to choose Central Coast Luxury Homes was sealed by John’s regular contact and ability to answer all of our questions over that time. We felt like we were in good hands.

Throughout the whole build John kept us informed almost daily through emails, telephone and on site meetings: special thanks here also to Anthony in the office for your expert synchronisation of each progress stage and behind-the-scenes co-ordination of emails, orders, quotes and questions.

As with any build there were many, many changes along the way at both our instigation and as a necessity due to external factors. John was able to accommodate and offer solutions at every turn. No problem was outside his scope of experience and John was able to recommend other trades to us for additional works which were required for our project, but outside the build contract. John’s networking contacts throughout the local building industry seemed endless and were invaluable to us.

We had previously used several building companies for our home builds and 3 previous childcare centres and there is not one that we could recommend. John Avis is the only builder we have been completely satisfied with, having exceeded our expectations by completing not just on time but ahead of time, building our project to a high standard that we were really thrilled with and, who held-our-hand and worked with us every step of the way. We still look at our childcare centre both inside and out and think “wow”!

I can honestly recommend John Avis and his team to anyone wanting a worry-free, top quality build.

To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to recommend John Avis from Central Coast Luxury Homes, I had the pleasure of working with John on our four luxury apartment development in Wamberal NSW 2260. I can recommend him highly and without reservation.

Throughout the course of the project, John and his team were consummate professionals. John was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was absolutely clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well.
The project was done with care and precision. His passion for the project made me feel he really did care about the final product. Winning best apartment and best apartment complex 2015 is proof to that.

In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. He and his team never left the work-site in disarray.

John possesses remarkable business acumen and a good feeling for what is necessary to achieve the best results within budget. He did an excellent job recommending solutions and products that best addressed any hurdles that arose throughout the entire development.

Do contact me if you have any further questions.

The Kettle Family

Killcare

We would like to sincerely thank John and his team at Central Coast Luxury Homes for doing a fabulous renovation on our family holiday home. Our father, David Kettle, had spoken highly of John for a number of years and was very excited about working with him on this renovation. Sadly our father passed away a few months into the renovation. We wanted to complete the project with John, which took another five months of renovation work. A challenge at the best of times, and made more so by geography - we both live in Brisbane and the house is at Killcare, on the NSW Central Coast.

John communicated closely with us throughout this process, regularly sending us photo updates of the house, as well as email updates and phone calls. His professionalism made it easy to work together despite the distance.

We couldn’t be happier with the completed renovation. The high quality workmanship throughout the renovation has completely changed the whole house. Everyone who has visited and stayed there has raved about what a beautiful job he did, particularly focusing on the stunning timber features.
Please accept our sincere thanks.

Mel Kettle and Julian Kettle, Brisbane.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for all your efforts in fulfilling our expectations with construction of our new home. From the outset you showed a willingness to help develop cost effective solutions and offer ideas that would bring the project within our budget. It is commendable that this was done without any obligation on us, and demonstrates your commitment to fulfilling client goals.

This was never an easy project, with both challenging site conditions and our absence overseas during the period of construction. Despite these hurdles we found your skill and knowledge as a quality builder very reassuring. This was particularly evident during construction as we grappled with numerous design changes which you handled in a very professional manner. We particularly appreciated the exploration of new ideas and proactive nature of responses given during the build process. Your attention to detail is evident everywhere we look, and reflects an understanding of what defines quality workmanship.

It would never be an easy task building an architect’s own home, however, the mutual demand for exacting quality can be seen in the finished product. You and your team can be proud of what you have completed and we thank you very much for your commitment and follow up service since moving in.

John Avis of Central Coast Luxury Homes was contracted to build our units on the Central Coast of NSW.

I found John to be honest and skilled in his approach to this project. He took the time to consult with me with regards to the quality and the finishes of the project. And also took great care in ensuring the usability of the units for their intended occupants.

Living in the ACT and building on the Central Coast, did initially, cause me some concern, due to not being able to carry out regular inspections of the property, but this concern was negated by John’s professionalism.

John also assisted in leasing 2 of the units with a Community based housing agency.

I was extremely pleased with the finish and quality of the units, and have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone considering building.
