Dear Cameron and the team

Thank you so much for your assistance in helping us on this journey. We appreciate your professional, helpful approach.

We look forward to working with you when we start the building process in the future!

Kind regards

Caroline and Roy

Thank you for all your assistance. New Build has been absolutely amazing in this entire process. I have already referred three potential clients to New Build. Sure they will have the same experience as us.

Just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help in securing our loan for our dream build. Your knowledge, advice and guidance was invaluable and made such a huge difference to our understanding and stress levels of this process.

I'm sorry I can't gift more than my baking but as you can imagine money is pretty tight at the moment, but I wanted to do something small to show how much your help meant to us.

Thank you, kind regards

We built an investment property with Navigation Homes Tauranga (BOP), and we’re just waiting for the official Code of Compliance from the council after doing the final walkthrough on Friday last week.

We used Ian and John at NewBuild for the finance. Both businesses were really good to deal with. Simon at Navigation was very patient and understanding, and along with Dean the site supervisor they did a great job of keeping us updated on progress using an online system called co-construct which contained and documented everything to do with the build. Photos were uploaded roughly every week and kept our mind at ease.

We had lockdown early in the piece but they were back on site and progressing things almost straight away. The final product feels really good quality wise and they have kept their word on things we discussed, and seemed to always be thinking ahead to make sure things ran smoothly. They’re now doing some final touch ups and other bits and pieces to finish it all off, which I’m sure will be taken care of in a similar manner.

NewBuild helped to ‘project manage’ the finance including making sure we were covered in case something went wrong (Master Builders Guarantee) and structuring the finance conditions in the build contract to be bank friendly (using Sovereign / AIA). This ensured the relationship between the bank, builder and us was kept on track with regards to timelines and making payment. It made it really easy.

Everyone is after a builder they can trust and if our experience is anything to go by, I’d have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team at Navigation to other people, particularly if NewBuild were running the finance side as well.



Dear NewBuild Team,

Thank you again for all of your help, guidance and support through what has been a very new experience for me not knowing anything about applying for a mortgage let alone one for building a new house.

You have made the process so much easier and less stressful, your knowledge and expertise in the finance of building new homes and knowledge in general has been absolutely amazing and unforgettable.

I would just like to point out that you make the banks look way out of touch with what customers need when building a new home - you guys really know what you're on about and what your clients need.

Anyhow, this isn't the end yet so I look forward to dealing with Vanessa whilst our new home is being built!

Have a great day!

Many Thanks,

Jess & Jase

To Ian, Marilize and the NewBuild Team,

Thank you so much!

You've worked so hard for us, especially on our most recent application and we REALLY appreciate how hard you fought for us when mere mortals would have given up.

Thank you and have a wonderful Christmas

Becky and Adam

Hi Marilize and John,

We wanted to thank you personally for all your help financing our build. We suspect had we tried on our own we would have failed or given up, your team has been excellent in helping us get finance and understand how the bridging loans work etc.

Thank you for all your help.

Merry Christmas!

Troy & Fiona

Good morning Ian,

Cameron has been absolutely amazing and should he be able to work his magic with obtaining more than our current per approval, then we would be happy to look at making use of a bit more but we would like to keep our mortgage as small as possible. 

But also have a home that is going to work for our needs.

We are super excited and eagerly looking forward to hearing back from Cameron in due course.

Take care  Keep safe.

Kindest regards

Lynn [and Johann]

Hi John [and NewBuild team],

Ours has been a LONG process to get to where we are right now which, although less than ideal from a builder perspective, the NewBuild side of things has been flawless. 

Thank you all so much for all your practical, straight-up advice and professional attitude that has made it a pleasure to deal with NewBuild.

I’ve already started recommending you guys highly to people I know who are interested in building and will continue to do so as I cannot recommend you enough. 

I have 100% confidence that [Vanessa] will continue on with the very pleasant relationship we have with NewBuild through the efforts of everyone we’ve dealt with so far.  Onwards and upwards!


Susan and Neil
