Annette added, “They had really creative thinking. We had our own ideas, and complemented that with their expert, creative thinking ideas. Thinking outside the box, that sort of thing. ” It wasn’t just the design process that had the two travellers loving the company, but what came with the overall build. “The way the house is designed, there is little to no maintenance at all” Stephen said, “It’s just such an easy, liveable space.” “When building a house, communication is so important” Annette mentioned, “[We] found with other builders we have used previously, there was no real communication. “Whereas [with Wilson], Ebony and Stacey [project managers] always followed up, and said, ‘This is where we’re at, do you have any questions?’ “The whole team get a rapport with you. [It’s] not a little rapport, it’s Tasmania [wide], and it really travels with you. ” Deciding to enlist Wilson Homes for a second time was more than just because of their terrific first experience, as they both explained. “It’s really easy to just walk away and think ‘I really liked that house, but it’s just not what we want’ and continue to look. But it was the fact that they said we can do these things for you, we can change the design for you.” Annette added “This was our first home build, so naturally we were cautious.” Highlighting their feelings at the beginning of the building process and how Wilson completely removed any fears that were once there. Stephen agreed wholeheartedly “We went back because we just loved everything about Wilson Homes. We love what they do, we love the people there because they’re knowledgeable and they always have a smile. “We feel that Wilson’s is a safety blanket. We know that we won’t get stumped, which is why we praise them so much. “We praise them because it’s a genuine product at a reasonable price – a fixed price – once we get to the nitty gritty and we sign the contract, we know how much it’s going to cost.” Even ten years after they first started building their home with Wilson’s, Stephen is impressed at how the ethos of the company hasn’t changed.

Annette & Stephen built their first Wilson Home back in 2009 in Tranmere on the eastern shore of Hobart. After many happy years in their home, they made the decision to downsize so that they can fulfil their desire to travel. CLIENT TESIMONIAL Annette & Stephen “We had a big Wilson Home that we moved into in January 2011” he said, “And Wilson’s was really accommodating and open to our suggestions on changes when we looked at the Nevada design. We thought ‘Wow, we really like this, but it’s not quite what we want”. What they wanted was to have their new home make the most of the beautiful 180° view that their property had, and that was another point that Annette found impressive about Wilson Homes. “We had ideas, and we talked to Paul [one of the builders], and he came up with things that actually suited us. They were prepared to sit and listen, and take in what we wanted, and adjusted it.” There was no question about who they were going to assign the task of creating a new, smaller home to suit their changing needs. For Stephen, it really was a no brainer.

“What I like about Wilson’s is that they’re growing… It’s this family business attitude, because even though they’re a massive company, they haven’t lost the personal touch and the genuine staff. “Nothing was pushy. Other companies get you in, and they just want your money. But with [Wilson], they didn’t push you at all.” Both Annette and Stephen were amazed at the quality of the build, with Stephen going further to recall one instance that occurred during the final part of the build process where a flaw was discovered. “Scotty and Ben [builders] during the handover looked at a few things and said ‘No, that’s not up to our standard’. As owners, and first-time home builders, we thought it looked fine. “But that’s what makes Wilson’s what it is, it’s the product, the service and it is the attention to detail. “The product will be superior because they will make sure that it is up to standard, and even above standard.” Annette and Stephen both had advice for anyone looking to build their dream home. “Quality product, genuine service, a company that’s willing to deal with you, and most importantly – the rapport. It’s not ‘This is the house, see ya later’ rapport, it continues. “Even if you have any bumps, scratches, or whatever, they accommodate you. They accommodate my working hours for questions.
