This morning I inspected a compass homes new build for a client as a pre -purchase inspection – 18 Peter Bourne Drive Pokeno. Having been in business for a number of years doing independent pre-purchase house inspections I get to see a wide variety of houses , and associated quality issues- especially on new builds .
It was a pleasure to see the high degree of workmanship displayed at this dwelling ; the attention to detail was superb and I rarely see a level of finish this high , from the general carpentry trim through to the painting and tiling and brickwork.
Please pass on to your site supervisor and subbies my observations – they have done a great job and I can honestly say the quality and level of finish they have attained is in the top 5% of new builds I have inspected over the last 7 years.

After meeting with various building companies, our decision was easily made after visiting Compass Homes. With a warm, welcoming approach from Jocosa we felt extremely comfortable from the get go. Everything clearly explained, no hidden costs or surprises and fully informed all the way. Treena & Jocosa we cannot thank you enough. You have such wonderful team in Pokeno. As for our finished product, we couldn't be happier. Such a beautiful build and everything we hoped for! Huge thanks to every member of the team that helped us on this exciting journey. We would recommend them in a heartbeat!

In 2015 we decided to move from the hustle and bustle in Auckland. We were very keen to be close, but far enough away from Auckland to have a more peaceful life style. Pokeno was our choice. We found a floor plan which we fell in love with, and that was the Ayla floor plan by Compass Homes. This was the start of our relationship with Compass Homes. During the construction of our home, we found the Compass team very helpful and easy to work with. Their advice and direction on any design changes we made along the way was outstanding and timely. We are very happy with the finished product and love our space.

Building a house from the other side of the world may sound like an impossibility daunting task, but not with Compass! Competent, professional and reliable... we are very happy with our lovely new home.
Brendan and Shae Ralph, 2018
We had a vision for our new home and wanted to use our own plan and design. Compass Homes were very versatile with that and didn’t try and push their own ideas. They kept us informed every step of the way and were nothing but accommodating of our wishes at each phase of the build. We are more than satisfied with the quality of work and we highly recommend Compass Homes to anyone as we cannot fault them. We love our new home!
Marianne & Gerard Pieterse, 2018
We had a vision for our new home and rather than push their own ideas, Compass were all too happy to bring our vision to life. They really looked after us every step of the way and were nothing but accommodating all our wishes, we love our new home!

I have a Compass Home. I can't recommend them highly enough and I wouldn't use anyone else if we had to build again.

Hawkins Construction was engaged by IAG as a project management office for the Christchurch earthquake rebuild for over 1100 homes. This was achieved through the procurement of selected Christchurch based home building companies which were required to go through a rigorous pre-qualification process.
.....Compass Homes was required to meet our high standards in regards to health and safety, quality, programme, cost and communication throughout the project.
We can confirm that Compass Homes has continually exceeded our requirements and has consistently rated highly with our customer satisfaction survey and performance reviews by the Hawkins project managers.
We have no hesitation in recommending them....

Hi Kim and Scott,
Just wanted to let you know we received your welcome pack and gifts last night. Thank you very much for that.
We are excited to be building with you. Your quality show home and the service we received from Scott were what finally made us decide to build versus buy and we’re looking forward to the entire process, as well as the final result.
Everyone we’ve dealt with both at Compass and at New Build (who Scott put us in touch with) have been fantastic.

Came home today to find your gift in my letterbox.
Many thanks for the candlesticks, they are very attractive and I like them in my living room, a pleasure to look at and admire.
Living here in my Compass built home has been just amazing. I am loving everything about it and I praise your Company when I am asked about the build and results. Your support was very much appreciated.
Thank you again
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Right from the get go they were prompt, transparent and extremely helpful. When we decided to build we contacted various building companies, Compass responded the next day, far far quicker than anyone else and this efficiency lasted through the entire build.
Being first home buyers we were clueless when it came to real estate let alone the building process and Compass just guided us through the whole thing. No costs were hidden, any variations to the plan that we decided to make were broken down and explained entirely so that there were no surprises cost, functionality or aesthetics-wise. This all helped the build process become only ever exciting rather than stressful like many told us it would be.
As for the finished product, we can't be happy enough. We have been so happy with the result and overall experience that we are building with them again.
We highly recommend Compass to anyone...and actually have that has resulted in friends now too owning Compass homes.
Deb Geddes | Franklin , July 2016
Often one hears of the stress and disappointment that people have gone through rebuilding their homes post earthquake. My experience has been the complete opposite .... it has been relaxed and stress free. Any queries and problems have been dealt with quickly and I have been kept up to date throughout the whole process.
.... The finished product is of the very highest standard and we are delighted with it.
I would quite happily get Compass homes to do my next home. So once again many thanks,
Hank | Christchurch, October 2016
"To the Compass Homes Team, many, many thanks for building us such a wonderful family home. We are very grateful and appreciative of your dedication and expertise."
Colin and Trish Elderton | Fendalton, Christchurch
Michelle and I would like to say that our new house is wonderful. Compass Homes made everything from start to finis so simple as we had not built before and did not have a clue of what to do or where to start, but your whole team sure did!!!"
"Hi there, Garry,
Well as you know, I moved into my new house over the weekend and had such an exciting time! I love my house and want to thank you and your team for making my dream come true. I took this project on by myself and had to put my trust in a total stranger and a newly formed business. You made me feel at ease all the way and I have trusted you.
"Thanks to the Team Compass Homes.
The house has been built before time and most people are surprised at the speed the project has been completed. Thanks to Olivia for suggesting and assuring us about the colour scheme we chose.
Due to Michelle's tight control over signing variations, I was always cautious of the cost involved so my budget did not blow at all."
"Compass Homes Christchurch Team,
Kerry and I would like to extend our thanks for your professional delivery of this project at our property at Lincoln.
As a project manager with 25 years experience, I am very happy with the construction process and quality outcome and would happily recommend Compass Homes (and will do so) to any prospective home."
"To the Compass Homes Team, thanks for building us a wonderful home. We love it and we are proud to own it. Great!"
