I first visited the Ausmar display at Harmony and spoke to Rod a bit over 2 years ago, Rod was friendly and helpful but not pushy, but I signed a contract with another local builder but after 4 months they were unable to build the home they proposed, so again I went back to visit the many display homes and again spoke to Rod who provided a quote for my new home, but also went to another local builder, I again chose the 2nd builder as it was a slightly larger home with a nice alcove for a pool. 6 months after paying my deposit I was again told they could not build my chosen home despite being told they had done their research and built homes like this many times before (block required raising to meet new flood levels).
I again returned to the display homes and this time I signed up with Rod and the Ausmar team and today I am happily living in my new home, Ausmar have done what the others could not. Sandy was helpful and patient throughout the colour selection process and in the days after when I wanted to make some changes. Clinton the build supervisor and Mel the CLO kept me updated weekly with photos and what’s happening this week once the build was underway. Contractors working on site were amazing, the tilers and painters proposed some changes to colours for grouts and trims and explained the benefits of these changes and painter recommended staining the front door to match the deck opposed to painting the colour of the garage door. I appreciated their thoughts and time to offer these suggestions when they could of just gone with what was on the plan.
My only regret was that I didn’t choose Ausmar the first time, could of saved $6k in deposits and been in my home 12 months earlier saving thousands in rent.
Thankyou team Ausmar for designing a home that suits my block perfectly and customising a standard plan to give me a unique home with all the features I wanted.

Researching builder’s floor plans I came across the Ausmar Ashbury design and found that this would be perfect for what we wanted on our small block. Ausmar has excellent customer reviews, family history and community project involvement so I touched base with Tyrone, the consultant at Newport Redcliffe Display Village, as a first step. We had a great first impression so we set an appointment time to meet. Tyrone was upfront, honest, extremely helpful and professional – I trust my gut.
Family and friends that have visited us in our new home have been impressed with what we have achieved in design for space and comfort. We are proud to recommend Ausmar Homes as we are so thrilled with the design, quality and value.

Alanna & Henry
Earlier this year, Henry and I set ourselves the goal of buying our first home. We’d always wanted to build new, but it was a bit of a daunting task after hearing so many horror stories of lengthy delays and budget blowouts. We started looking at established homes before quickly realising that we weren’t going to get the age or style of home we wanted within our budget. Once the government announced the HomeBuilder grant on top of the first home buyer grant we started to take a new build more seriously and began researching local builders and visiting display homes.
Henry was away for work when we started this process, so we were sharing a lot of land and floor plan options over email. I Facetimed Henry when I went through displays so he could also get a feel for the homes. The Ausmar display at Newport was the first one I walked through and we both just fell in love with it. The design was done by Darren Lockyer, so to have him officially handing over our keys was just amazing.
The entire process from start to finish was honestly so easy and enjoyable – I really can’t fault anything. Our sales consultant Trevor was so knowledgeable and helpful with finding land and the right house design. Our colour consultant was equally as wonderful and gave us a few tips that we decided to trust and are so glad we did! And our supervisor Liam was just amazing – he allowed us to organise our fencing and different lights while they were on site which was so unexpected but hugely appreciated. I can’t believe how quickly and seamlessly he completed the build – it was well within the promised eight week timeframe!
I couldn’t recommend Ausmar highly enough. They have been an absolute dream to build with and I would happily recommend them to any of our family and friends.
