Jim, John-Paul & Paul,

It has been exactly a year since we moved into our Samuel James Home. Thuy and I just wanted to take a minute to send a thank you note to all of you for everything you have done for us. We love our home and it is truly a dream home. The entire team a Samuel James Homes is fantastic to work with (Mark, Arron, Danielle, Zoe and Mira). I have told many friends it was like building our home with our family. We chose to build with Samuel James after our first meeting with Mark, at the Centauri display. Samuel James Homes truly listened to all our needs and wishes throughout the whole process. Before deciding to build we heard many horror stories from friends regarding the building process. We are very fortunate to say that we cannot relate to any of those stories. And as a matter of fact, we are very sad that the process has ended as we truly enjoyed every moment.

If anyone were to ask would you build again with Samuel James Homes…. the answer is 100% yes. Wishing Samuel James Homes all the success for the future
Thuy & Michael
We decided on building our dream home with Samuel James after visiting almost every display home available in Adelaide. We had seen some beautiful homes, but once we saw their display home, we were sure they were the right choice.

Having never been through a build before, our fears of building disappeared upon meeting the design team. The staff were able to answer every question and cater to all of our needs, without hesitation. They spent the time to get to know us, they asked many questions, all to ensure they would be able to deliver our requests. And they did so in spades!

From the broader structural design, to the minute details of colour matching, door stops, etc they were able to showcase every option available to us. There were times where they had to hold our hands and walk us through this process.

For example, we were sure we knew what we wanted as far as the floor plans go! However, being the professionals that they are, they had thought of every possible scenario and helped us to amend our ideas when needed, all in an effort to help us achieve our dream.

The people we worked with, from the office personnel, to the construction team, the landscape team and each and every trade that helped to build our home, were terrific. They were clear on their tasks, took every opportunity to discuss each stage with us, and made us feel like part of their well oiled machine.

The final result is a home that we are all so proud of. Even now, more than a year after we moved in we are still amazed at the beautiful home we live in. For this we are eternally grateful to the team at Samuel James.

We are often asked.. ‘Would we recommend the Samuel James team?’ Our answer is always the same. Absolutely, every day of the week!!!

We just wanted to thank you for the home you built us. It has met all our expectations and is a delight to live in.

It's been a pleasure to deal with the SJH team and your tradesmen. Your after sales service is also excellent, something which rarely happens these days.

Many thanks to you John, Paul, Jim, Aaron and the admin team for a pleasant building experience. We wish you every success for the future.

After exhaustive research we couldn’t go past the quality and value for money of the Samuel James building option. Sure it was a little dearer than the others but you can tell in the fit and finish. Every staff member was genuine and caring .... nothing was too much trouble.

Final inspection and handover by the owner of the company proved to me that everyone in the company was prepared to put their name to the final product.

How can you tell it’s a Samuel James home ....... I don’t know ....you just can

We would like to thank Samuel James Homes for constructing an outstanding home for us. Lots of planning goes into a home from start to finish, and it can be a stressful process, but this is made easier when you have a team of professionals that are able to guide you through every stage to reach your dream.

The office staff always attend to any queries and are a delight to deal with. Our friends and family have said it is a beautiful home, open plan, top quality and attention to detail.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Samuel James to any of our family and friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the building process from our very first meeting right through to handover and beyond. We had our initial ideas of our dream home and the team at Samuel James were fantastic in turning these ideas into reality. Being our first time building a home, the advice we received along the way was invaluable. It was a pleasure to deal with each individual team member. We found everyone to be approachable, friendly, professional and great communicators, all key characteristics you need from a team of people who are handling such a big personal investment for you. We couldn’t be happier in our new home and would go through the process all over again, only we love our new home too much to want to move

Samuel James made the process of building our new home easy and stress free. Samuel James customised our home to the size of our block and to our specific requirements. The finishes and build of the home was to the highest standard and we constantly receive complements at the quality of the work and the beautiful design. Even after the build was complete Samuel James were prompt in responding to any queries or repairs we required, however, these were very few and far between. What we appreciated most with Samuel James was their high attention to detail, the stress free nature of the building process and the wonderful staff. Thank you Samuel James.

The best testimony I can give for Samuel James Homes is that we started out as just another client and became good friends by the time the project was completed.

We have been living in our new home for over six months and we now think it is an appropriate time to express our feelings of how we feel about the complete experience of planning, building and living in this fantastic house built by Samuel James Homes. The entire building process went very smoothly with all the trade's people carrying out their work in a very professional and caring manner. The second fix carpenter, the electrician and the plumbing contractor deserve special mention as their workmanship was exceptional The house was handed over to us in sparkling condition after being carefully detailed by a very professional team of people. The best testimony I can give for Samuel James Homes is that we started out as just another client and became good friends by the time the project was completed. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Samuel James Homes to any person who wants a quality home built with a minimum of fuss, absence of problems and completion by the promised date. Warmest best wishes

We wish to congratulate and commend Samuel James Homes for an outstanding construction for our home last year.

We wanted a beautiful, premium home with comfort, great design and state of the art appliances. Well, they delivered on all counts and much, much more. The construction was stress-free.

The Samuel James team are a very close-knit “family” who were always friendly and eager to help. Initially we met with senior sales consultant Mark Raphael, an excellent manner and very attentive to our needs. His advice was invaluable, as was the in- house architect/designer. It was at this time that we began to relax and envisage that we had made the correct choice in choosing Samuel James Homes for the construction. The process from this stage to handover was very precise in all stages, with input and advice from Paul, John and Jim( the partners) as well as the very friendly office staff(Danielle, Zoe and Mira) who were always very attentive to any queries and always with a caring attitude. The partners were to be commended for their valuable input, organisation, high standards and premium quality throughout.. It is rare to see such standards in a building company and as a result the whole process was made stress free and with minimal hassles.

A special mention must be made for the Project Manager, Aaron. He was outstanding, extremely reliable friendly, attentive to all our questions and “on the ball”. He made the whole process extremely pleasant.

All in all, we have a beautiful home now that we are extremely proud of and as a result, very proud of Samuel James Homes. We have no hesitation in recommending them to friends, family and contacts. Thank you Samuel James Homes. We wish you every success in the future.

To Samuel James,

From the minute we walked into the Samuel James office we knew we were in good hands. The building process was made easier by the patience, understanding and support of all Staff. Their uncompromising adherence to high standards in the build is reflected in the flattering comments by Tradesmen & copious positive comments received since completion, even from another builder.

Staff went the extra mile to resolve the limited issues that arose and Samuel James’ ‘after build’ service has been above expectation. We are delightfully happy with our new home and so glad we chose Samuel James.

Warm Regards
David & Trish Mahar
We wish to formally express our appreciation and commendation to Samuel James.

Being our dream home, we went through an exhaustive and thorough review of Samuel James and your main competitors. Despite the high quality of your competitors, Samuel James stood out as the outstanding premium builder.

Our relationship with Samuel James began from the first day we met your Senior Sales Consultant (Mr. Mark Raphael), who listened attentively to our specific needs and provided detailed advice on our building options without at any stage adopting a 'hard-sell approach'. Your designer consistently amazed us with design options which were eye-catching yet practical for daily living use. Your project manager smoothly guided the construction process without any delays or unpleasant surprises. Carrying a 'nothing is impossible' attitude, the people at Samuel James were always patient and responsive to all our questions and suggestions. In addition, the range of selections provided by Samuel James is of the highest quality and reputation.

Each of the directors established direct and personal relationships with us. All directors were accessible at all times. All directors provided detailed advice which equipped us with the knowledge to make all decisions on the design, selection and build process.

Many people would emphasise that building a home is often a stressful experience. Therefore, it is amazing that we are in a position to honestly express that we experienced no stress whatsoever in building with Samuel James. It is the professionalism, technical experience and relationship-building skills of people at Samuel James that provided us with the assurance that our dream home was in the best hands.

There is no doubt that we would express our commendation of Samuel James to our family, friends and contacts. We would not trust anyone else other than Samuel James to build our dream home.

When we built our current home we looked for a bespoke builder we could trust to deliver what we wanted, when and how we wanted it. And with Samuel James that’s exactly what we got. SJ more than matched our expectations in giving us a quality build and certainty about both pricing and timelines.

SJ were endlessly patient and understanding in coming up with a design which covered all our requirements and met the restrictions we unexpectedly faced because of our site’s location next to a heritage listed building and significant trees. Despite the myriad changes that were made to our design to meet Council requirements and our own rethinks, SJ kept track of all those changes and still welcomed us as friends with each new change.

Thank you to all concerned for being so helpful and capable; we consider ourselves fortunate to have built with a builder of such quality and integrity. Our grateful thanks to all. Peter & Christine

We contracted Samuel James Homes to construct two stone/brick veneer houses. We found Samuel James Homes to be very approachable and helpful with selection of stone, modifications to layouts, selection of kitchen appliances, fittings and finishes and detailed design of kitchen, bathroom and en-suite cupboards.

We found that the supervision was very good, the site was kept tidy from the initial period of demolition of an existing building throughout the entire period of construction. The tradesmen used were experienced, friendly and approachable and were required to maintain high standards in all their work. Attention to detail in finishing of work by all trades was of a high standard. We are both extremely pleased with the results, would certainly use them again if the situation arose and have no hesitation in recommending Samuel James Homes as builders to anyone.

All the best.
MJ & SL Porter
