Our Custom Built Difference

Martin’s Personal Promise

From start to finish, which includes 12 months after the keys are handed over, you will never feel like a number when building your dream home with the Martin Locke Homes Team. Whatever the size or budget, our team is second to none when it comes to delivering on every promise Martin personally makes before, during and after the build process.

There are so many ‘small things’ that must happen during each stage of construction to ensure your home is built and finished to the highest standard possible. When a client builds with Martin Locke Homes, you can rest assured that every small detail is considered, and followed through. Our whole focus is on making your building experience stress free and enjoyable.

Design Stage:

Whether you have concepts of your own, or no idea at all on what your new home will look like, when you are a client of MLH, you have the expertise and experience of Martin and our team on your side, who together, will work with you to bring your dream alive.

Talk to out team about viewing our existing design concepts that will help give ideas while we work with you until we are completely happy with a design prior to moving to the next stage of pricing.

Pricing & Presentation:

This is also an area that many clients have also told us we are second to none. The level of detail and information that is presented to you upon fully committing to us, ensures that there are no ‘grey areas’, or surprises down the track.
