It was a great pleasure to build with New Home Shop. Communication was top notch, I was always informed of the progress of the build. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of building a new house.



First home buyer

A big thank you, Anton for all your hard work in getting me to the signing of my contract. I hold you in the highest regard in the way you have helped me through the process from the beginning to today. Your professionalism and willingness to be as helpful as you could possibly be has made this a great experience for me. You have answered all my questions and made all the amendments I have asked for to get me my perfect house! Your openness and honesty will get your far in this business! A big thank you to New Home Shop for providing me with finally a chance to own my own home. I will be recommending them to anyone I know who is in the market for a new home.

Thank you, Sarina for your help in the signing of my contract. I appreciate you answering my questions which in turn made me feel very comfortable putting pen to paper. I can't speak highly enough of the service and help I have received from not only yourself but Anton too! I have felt very comfortable in all aspects of buying my new home with Anton and you have added to that.



Sachin has been exceptional, honest and very helpful with all of my questions- a warm personality to go with the service. Looking forward to working with him until the product is finished and on any future projects.



As a new migrant to Australia building my first home here in Melbourne without much knowledge about the construction process here in Victoria, many of my friends warned me about builder selection and suggested to go with premium builders. However, I chose New Home Shop and the way Murray Wallace helped me is exceptional. He explained the process and helped me with colour selection and even visited my house to get a signature for a contract update. So far its a pleasant experience with New home shop and I hope this continue during the construction process. Thanks a a lot Murray for being helpful and always supportive right from the beginning.

Murray Wallace was outstanding in respect to him dealing with all our enquiries in a timely manner. Nothing was too much trouble and if our enquiry involved other areas, he always got back to us with an update. With the building, we did run into a couple of small issues that were very easily worked out over a phone call and to our satisfaction. Once we moved into our new home, a friend of mine who is an independent builder walked through the home and was very impressed with the fit out and also the paint work. My sister was also so impressed with our home that she is selling hers and building a new home through NHS.

I found New Home Shop’s team very good, especially Murray Wallace. He is very helpful and co-operative and always listened to me carefully in order to solve my problems. Great job Murray!



Home owner

Thank you Murray Wallace from New Home Shop, I found you to be most helpful and understanding of my situation. I told you how much money I had to spend and where I wanted to live and with this information you were able to help me find land and a builder that I would be happy with to build my dream home. Murray met with me on several occasions to understand what I wanted and my budget. He worked with me and was able to help me achieve my Dream Home. Murray introduced me to the builder, Doug who was also very helpful and wonderful to deal with. I would not have any hesitation in recommending either of them for someones future home. Thank you Murray and Doug for everything



New home buyer

I am in the process of starting to build my house with New Home Shop and have found their service to date impeccable. They have been very courteous, professional and patient with all the changes I wanted that were not a part of their standard deluxe specifications. I look forward to continuing this relationship once my build commences shortly.

NHS were easy to deal with from start to finish. 
I was given lots of helpful advice when it came to changes I wanted to make to house plans during the initial phase. Murray was extremely dedicated to making sure I got my dream home.
(Thanks Murray)

The selection of builders choice materials (carpets, tiles, taps etc) were fantastic. Leah's knowledge of design made choosing colours a breeze.
(Thanks Leah)

During the building process I was always kept in the loop with fortnightly updates and any questions I had were answered promptly by friendly staff.
(Thanks Valissa, your efficiency in answering my queries was greatly appreciated)

All in all they have delivered what they've promised and I couldn't be happier. Great workmanship and honest people to deal with.



Really very happy with results of my new home. Great quality home. Thank you to Sachin, Sarina, Valissa, Nick you guys make our life easy and happy. If you are putting your money, love and effort into building your forever home or even your long term home then New Home Shop/Build is 100% builder for you.

We recently purchased a land and built a house with New Home Shop/Build and I must say their service is commendable. Right from Dorine who’s a very professional, cheerful person and skilled at scheduling appointments, to Flor Aguilar who I cannot thank enough for going those extra miles in understanding my frequently changing requirements and making very wise suggestions in plans. Huge Thanks to Valissa who is again a very very warm and friendly person and coordinator between the site supervisor Nick, Doug and us for sending us email updates very promptly and scheduling appointments/walkthroughs on special requests from us.
