After having owned an engineering Company for over twenty years now and having always had an interest in property investing I decided the time felt right to do some investigating and I purchased a section in Papamoa, Bay of Plenty. So now it was time to find a company that I trusted and would fit in with my plans, what I found was most companies don’t allow you to use your own tradesmen or change standard plans without hefty fees. After having been recommended to try TRENZ Homes by a friend I was extremely happy when we came up with a modified plan to suit the section better and using a combination of my own and TRENZ Homes tradesmen to get the job done. Aaron also had a lot of good ideas and knowledge on property investing as he is an investor himself. I will definitely be planning another project with Aaron and TRENZ Homes.

Living in Sydney – and contemplating building an extension house on our current holiday home site in Taupo did cause me concern. Do I move back to NZ to oversee this project – who can I trust? With some reservation I got the ball rolling and with responses from a couple of Companies Aaron Sheely from TRENZ stood out way above anyone else I had put feelers out to. From the very onset of dealing with him I found him very attentive and nothing would be in the too hard box. Aaron was so easy to work with – responding to every question or concern straight away and in a professional manner…( all via email or over the phone.) I was at ease that he could deliver and would oversee the full project from visiting the site, drawing up of the plans, the council permit etc, the complete build to the painting. He has been attentive on every matter and went the extra mile to ensure that the process of building the new house ran smoothly under his watchful eye with not a flaw being ignored. I have been back to NZ twice during the build and have seen the house completed – I am so happy with my new house - very impressed with the level of workmanship, the quality of all the products TRENZ use. Most of all the service and attention I received from Aaron – I would thoroughly recommend TRENZ Homes.
Over the last 18 months Mike has helped up design and build of our new Waihi Beach home. The site we started with was steep with a small building footprint requiring engineering, which meant other construction companies we approached were not prepared to face the challenges of our project.
Mike showed us a number of plans and arranged a visit to a home he had recently completed which he felt may be similar to what we had in mind. Seeing the finished product helped us design exactly what we needed, so choosing TRENZ through Mike was an easy decision. Plans were drawn up, and after some changes the site work began with a local builder and tradesmen sourced through Mike. This arrangement suited us very well as both my wife and I are busy professionals without the expertise to know who was needed on site when, and what materials needed to be sourced to keep the building programme efficient and on target.
Along the way we were able to make some changes, which is not an easy ask in the strict building compliance environment, and have ended up with much more home than we had originally intended, which has already been used by family for beach holidays.
Mike and his team have been approachable and ready to please throughout and he is very welcome to bring prospective clients through our home to show what can be achieved with him project managing his TRENZ home builds.

We were novice to the whole build process and what was involved, however Neil at TRENZ made the whole process much easier and went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we understand what was happening at each stage.
I would also like to acknowledge and thank the Joe Love Builders team, there workmanship is top quality and have the personality to match - we totally love our TRENZ Home and we are glad to show any potential TRENZ clients through our home so that you can see why they are number one in the house industry! Keep up the great work.

This e-mail is to thank you and the team at TRENZ Homes. We will pour the concrete drive and paths tomorrow and then a few minor tidy up jobs and the project is completed on time (very tight schedule ) and on budget.
You will be impressed with the quality of the finish and how the house takes advantage of the relatively difficult site.
Gareth was great and his QS was spot on with enough generosity to take the stress out off the job. My builder Kevin Pyle is old school, fastidious and proud of his workmanship. He initially freaked-out when I told him I was building a kitset. He imagined a huge Meccano set with lots off numbered pieces. In reality you do not provided Kit-Set homes, you provide package homes that are cost effective because of your design, systems control and because off your purchasing power.
We recently signed up with TRENZ to build and project manage the building of our new family town pad. My husband is a great builder himself but given that we were out of the country for the entire build we were happy to give TRENZ the job with the expectation that we would receive a great service and product. We were not disappointed! Our only hold up was Council, the builders and TRENZ team were on board the entire project to get the result we were after in a timely manner. We are more than happy to recommend the TRENZ team to anyone looking at building their new home.

Dear Selena and John (and the TRENZ Homes team),
This is just a quick note to thank you for the diligent and professional service you have provided to us.
Our project was a bit unusual (building on remote Stewart Island from concept images yet to be converted to working drawings) but you made the process easy and enjoyable.
Your team was committed to the project from start to finish and we are very grateful for all your work. There were always going to be logistical complications with the build but you remained flexible and proactive through the process. Our bach (or crib as they say in the far south) was completed on time and within budget.
We couldn’t be more happy with the finished product. We have no hesitation is providing a reference recommending your firm.
We wish you all the best in the future. We have no doubt you will be successful.
Sam and Rebecca Guest.
Working with Nicky from TRENZ Homes was a hassle free experience. TRENZ Homes were very accommodating on the plans, costs were clear from the start of the build and any variation was clearly communicated before the spend was committed. When something wasn’t in stock we often got the higher spec product for no extra cost. Nicky has great attention to deal, is well organised and has exceptional project management skills and was always friendly to deal with and I always felt well communicated with. The outcome was a beautiful beach bach to enjoy.
We looked at all kinds of options for house building as and as a result have dealt with a whole range of companies, I can honestly say though that none of them even came close to delivering the level of customer service you personally did. Please feel free to pass this on to your boss as I think you must be a great asset to your team. Getting info out of some companies has been incredibly difficult and there has been NO follow up with any of them except yours.
