John Hughes maintains that ‘you should choose your dealer before you choose your car!’. He considers that the quality of the service and total experience from dealing with John Hughes are just as important as the car. Indeed, I discovered that this sentiment applies to building your new house. VIVA Developments were recommended to me by a private design & construct company when I was searching for a quality home builder. I had previously looked at the larger, more commercial home builders in the marketplace but found them to be overly clinical in their approach and more interested in promoting their designs rather than listening to my special requirements. So when I was introduced to Daniel from VIVA I was immediately impressed by his attitude and professional conduct. He listened and responded with alternatives if he considered these to be in keeping with my outcomes. Apart from obtaining the right price for my project (much cheaper than those large, commercial building companies), I was delighted with the personal service I received from design to handover. During the project I was constantly kept informed of progress and issues of concern which were beyond VIVA control. That said, handover was still ahead of schedule and my new house is just marvellous. Everyone who visits my home comments on the unique design, quality of materials and workmanship. I highly recommend Daniel and his dedicated team of project managers to anyone considering entering into a building contract. The quality of the service and total experience from dealing with VIVA are just as important as the house.
