I am not sure whether the amount of questions/follow up I have requested has been more or less than other clients. Either way I have been very impressed with your professionalism – speed and accuracy of feedback. Nothing has appeared to be too much to ask. You were very professional in how you offered your advice, knowing when to guide us towards a decision and also knowing when to be firm and say “ you know what, that won’t look right” e.g. last night with the garage door. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who was considering building.
Could you also pass on my thanks to Paul, his guidance was also much appreciated and I feel very comfortable with the electrical element of the selection process.
Hope you’re well. Getting very excited about our house, just wanted to pass on how amazing your people have been that I have dealt with so far. This is our 9th house we have renovated/built and the process with CG has been seamless, everyone has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Speak soon.
“We just wanted to say what a fantastic experience it has been with Danielle and Glen. Very easy to deal with, both understood what we were after, unbelievably helpful and some great ideas.
It is not common to come across folks who are able to be fun, professional and highly efficient all at the same time, both are. They do both themselves and Carter Grange great credit , evidenced by us moving onto the next phase.
We have had unfortunate experiences before and this is a very refreshing change. I am copying in both Gary and Amanda who were also stars.
Thanks to all and we look forward to the next step of the journey
Kindest regards and thanks”

Quan & I would like to thank you.
We are both very impressed by how easy the process has been thus far.
From first meeting, it was apparent that you are exceptionally organised, efficient at what you do & are passionate about your work.
You are most transparent, patient & professional.
We are appreciative of you going through the building contract with us in great detail & allowing us to make changes where need be.
We have an enormous amount of trust in you & the team at CG & are looking forward to completing the build.
We are overall very happy & will highly recommend CG.
Carter Grange has built us our beautiful forever home.
We needed a builder that was prepared to work with our ‘odd shaped block’, yet still be able to meet the needs of our young, big family.
Carter Grange was the only company that was able to work with our restrictions, think outside the box and create our dream home.
Ben and Dannielle were an amazing team from the start. Nothing was too much trouble, and every question and query was worked with, considered and dealt with. No restriction or obstacle was too great, and Ben is a master architect and managed to design every inch to perfection making it spacious, practical and beautiful.
Molly in the interior selection department was always fantastic, approachable, and patient, had amazing ideas and advice, yet listened carefully to what we wanted and envisioned.
Adam was also a major asset to CG advising us on the best way to organize the electrical side of things which can be very overwhelming.
It was exciting to watch it all unfold from sketches on paper to what it is today.
Amanda was great too, and was always willing to help where she could.
Our site manager Nick was incredible. Very organized and approachable, and made sure things ran like clock work.
Unfortunately due to head office circumstances. Nick was moved to another area, we did panic initially, as to loose a manager at this stage was definitely not ideal. BUT We were lucky enough to get Josh T as our new manager. Josh took over our site at a stage where it was about 80% done. He had a massive responsibility to see us though to the end of our build, to make sure it ran smoothly and on schedule. Not an easy task to take over a project like ours just before lock up stage.
Josh was absolutely incredible. He dealt with us, with his tradies, and colleagues, with the utmost professionalism, was on top of every situation and always accommodating and available. Grace too, was great to communicate with and always professional.
Anyone building with Carter Grange will be so lucky to receive Josh as their manager. He was amazing, and made an experience which can be extremely stressful- very enjoyable and exciting.
All trades used by CG have been of the highest quality, very professional, reliable and friendly. I must mention specifically the painters and tilers.
We have been in our house for nearly 3 months. And it already feels like home.
Thanks for holding our hand through the whole process CG and for the continued support even now that we have moved in. We look forward to our 3 month maintenance inspection.
I would recommend Carter Grange to anyone looking at going down the construction path.

“We couldn’t recommend Carter Grange highly enough. They helped us to achieve our dream home on our budget when we thought it was never going to happen. The whole process from 1st meetings to design to… build to handover was flawless. All staff were a pleasure to deal with only too happy to help and Simon Green our supervisor went beyond to make sure we were in our new home on time and was very professional and just a great guy thank you Carter Grange from all the family for making our dreams come true.”
Still in shock – thanks for all your efforts
Especially for guiding us through the design and contracts all of which were a big unknown. I actually think this is what we were hoping for from CG and we have been delighted with the team and their help and expertise.”
“Hi C & G Team,
We have signed the contract! Can you believe after 2 years of meetings, discussions and planning we finally signed the contract today! We feel honoured at your support and expertise – yes there have been some bumps around the road and some stressful confusing moments, many discussions of clarification but also lots of exciting times, all of which have bought us to the final stages of contract.
Jessie – Your ability to get on with it is second to none. From the very start, you have shown immense support, empathy and understanding and we felt like we were working with a friend who also worked for C & G. Keep ticking those boxes!
Michael – The ultimate professional, your ability to explain things in detail helped us make sense of some confusing matters and issues. We appreciate how you stepped in our shoes in order to help understand where we were coming from which helped enormously. Thank you!
Jen – What a lovely way to be introduced to C & G, thank you for addressing our needs in the finer detail of the plan development. Consistent, friendly and supportive the whole way through.
Ben – Your style and creativity precedes you, thank you for going the extra mile in bringing understanding to our vision.
Because we will be neighbours your most welcome to come over and marvel and appreciate your masterpiece!
Carey – Your cool, calm (Fonzie like) knowing throughout the council process was confirming in a time of doubt and confusion. Are you sure Michael and yourself are not brothers! New hair do suits you ?
Molly – Professional, Prompt, Persistent. Your honest and assuring style helped us throughout this process and made our decision making much more easier. Maybe another P which I could include is Patient ?
Laura – In Mollys absence you shone like a star, we felt your adapted to what we wanted effortlessly.
Adam – The Tech Guru, your enthusiasm with technology made us feel like we wanted the tech out the whole house in expense of the Kitchen and maybe the bathroom. Luckily, cool heads prevailed and we will have a kitchen and bathroom ?
Thank you all for your assistance and support and we look forward to the building of our dream home!”
Warm regards and appreciation,
Kosta and Fay
We have just moved into our new home and wanted to pass on our gratitude to our wonderful site supervisor Leigh Hendra.
Leigh went out of his way to ensure that our build went smoothly and he was always incredibly prompt and helpful with any queries we had. He kept us up to date throughout the process and his professionalism and positive attitude were much appreciated.
It was really enjoyable working with Leigh and he is a great asset to Carter Grange!”
Mara and Brent
Likewise, was really good to see you on Saturday, you are such a workaholic!
We met with Mina at Belmore Rd, and she was so wonderful and informative on the building process, as she had only completed her build with Carter Grange in February.
We’d like to say that our experience so far has been nothing short of outstanding and wonderful, from our first meeting with you and Ben, to when Jen took over for the design process. You have all been so wonderful and friendly, knowledgeable and so accommodating in helping us on our way to building our dream home!
I think you have done a great job of breaking down all the parts of the designing process so well, that it has never been daunting, but rather exciting as we have done our colour browse, and will be onto our Joinery appointment next. Eleanor at Byron Interiors was so thorough in the colour browse, showing us all the range of standard as well as upgrades.
We are looking forward to the next few stages of our design process.
Thanks again Kate for making our dream of building our very own Monet 57 come true!
We look forward to seeing more Carter Grange homes being built in Essendon =)”
