I’ll make it easy
Building a new home can seem a little overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before. But helping clients navigate the path to their dream home is what I do best. And it’s definitely not as difficult as it seems – in fact, at McDonald Jones, it’s easy.
It’s such an exciting job to be helping someone buy a home. I love the challenge of putting the puzzle together with a client. I really get personally involved - from helping people to find the right block to tweaking the design to suit their needs. The end result is that we leave a permanent mark on the world, something that will provide a home for many families.
I also love the security of knowing (for myself and the client), that the company has been around a long time and is well established. McDonald Jones cares about the homes they build and have well-honed procedures that ensure a smooth journey for clients right up until hand-over. In the big picture, there is nothing more inspirational than being part of this company.
I’ve been in the industry for 25 years now. With every build I work on, my aim is to have happy and satisfied customers who have learned how to work with all the options in their budget. There are so many stories that lead people to me in one way or another, and I take pride in giving my clients the individual education each one needs for a true understanding the building process.
Excitement! Everyone apologises for the amount of questions they ask me, but asking questions is completely normal – and helpful! It’s how I gain perspective and understand what people are setting out to achieve. My approach is also systematic – I start with the basic information to ensure everyone gets what they need along the way, as well as plenty of support for the dreams and excitement a beautiful finished home offers!
I’m a new-home crazy. I’m in love with all aspects of building - from planning a site, to being a Pinterest and Instagram fan. But I’d have to say my area of expertise is in providing individual client education to ensure a happy and successful building journey.
Every client has their story – and I help people with what their particular story means they need. Some people need a lot of assistance, while others need less support and can just flow through the process effortlessly. Every build is my biggest accomplishment because everyone brings their own special story to their dream home.
I provide the information people need in a timely manner. I am patient while people work through their options, and no question is ever too silly! I’m a details-person, so my clients can rest easy and just enjoy their building journey!
Questions I'm frequently asked
Most people come to us not having built before, and are on the journey of working out how it all works. I always offer a quick sit-down to explain everything people need to know so they can create a realistic budget they have to work with. Some people start with a design, some people start with a certain block – wherever people begin their journey, I can help them with everything they need to know so they can choose the home that is right for them.
The building world has its own terminology, processes and requirements. I help people by unravelling the building jargon and explaining what means what and why a process is in place. I help with things like how we can assist with ‘unregistered’ land, how long it takes to build, or what ‘developer requirements’ and terms like ‘88b’ mean I do all of this this before people commit to a block.
MJH offers about 400 floor plans at present, so if people don’t happen to see something on display to fit their requirements, I talk to them about what they are looking for and can quickly sift through their options and come up with a plan to suit.
