"We just thought it would be interesting to let you know that after the 16th of August 2013 magnitude 6.6 earthquake centred in Seddon/Ward, our family are astonished in the way this home reacted. Our dwelling is next to Lake Elterwater and we sustained absolutely NO DAMAGE whatsoever. There is another home built by a high profile housing company close by (built at the same time) and the amount of damage that house sustained is beyond belief. We would personally like to congratulate you on the workmanship and quality that has gone into the house. We would recommend this type of house to anyone in the future. I have personally seen most houses around Ward and there is damage to all EXCEPT OURS!!
Congratulations Endeavour Homes"

"Recently we moved into our new home in Blenheim, built by Endeavour Homes and we would like to express our satisfaction with the process.
We made the first contact by approaching staff in the office of the show home, enquiring about standard plans. Initially we thought Nadine was the office receptionist but as we progressed further we saw examples of her first class ability to deal with customers and her management skills. The few stressful moments we experienced Nadine kept her calm and reassuring demeanour, nothing was a drama.
Simon presented us with a house plan designed for our section, exactly to our brief and was able to make minor changes as we stood in front of his computer, that was impressive.
The process from first presentation to the start of the build was smooth and we found the builders very obliging and helpful, nothing was a problem, and we were allowed on site anytime to discuss issues.
All the trades people gave us quality workmanship and were very helpful.
We have used the latest technology of LED lighting, induction cooking hob and heat pump heating and hot water heating, the latest showers and tapware made in New Zealand, all adding up to us being very happy with our 'show home' quality home, clean and tidy, on budget and on time at takeover."

"From our initial meeting to the handover of the keys to our fantastic new home, the team at Endeavour Homes looked after us every step of the way. Nadine and Simon explained the process, made us feel comfortable and, most importantly, gave us the confidence from the outset that they were the right people for the job. Their flexibility and creative thinking allowed us to get the absolute maximum value for money in terms of what we were able to achieve for the budget we had to work with.
The build itself was amazingly stress-free. Once we met our builders Rob & Dan, it confirmed we had nothing to worry about. They had all the answers to every question and had some great ideas for how we could make practical improvements to various parts of the design.
From eco decking to state-of-art sound systems, windows to wardrobe designs – Endeavour Homes took care of everything for us. And that is what takes the stress out of the building process and why using Endeavour, was such an easy decision to make.
We got the home of our dreams, on time and on budget."

"We spent 3 years designing our family home before we approached any builders. Endeavour Homes made it all come together nicely. Everything we asked, be it hard or easy, they made it happen.
Their staff were very easy to work with and kept us informed all the way.
There were no surprises at the end. They completed our home well within our expected time frame. They made building an exceptionally rewarding experience.
There is nothing that we would change about our home. We would highly recommend them as a building company."
- Chris and Sara
"We chose to build with Endeavour Homes after approaching numerous companies with our architect's plans of our home.
We found them to be the most accommodating with our wants and nothing was a problem to ensure specific needs were met. From the initial planning all the way through to handover we found Nadine and the team to be professional, friendly and extremely helpful with all our questions and queries. They were knowledgeable and any aspects in our build that were new concepts to them they were happy to research and work with us to get the job done properly.
The whole process was new and exciting for us and we would happily recommend Endeavour to people and would definitely build with them again one day."
- Glenn and Julie
"After finding the section, and a couple of years of planning, our next dilemma was how to translate all our ideas into reality. We talked to some architects and builders but were either frustrated by their interpretation of what we wanted, or were discouraged by the potentially prohibitive cost involved. By chance we then went to Endeavour and soon realised that what we wanted was achievable, and they also quickly gave us confidence we needed to go ahead.
Our special thanks to Nadine, Simon and Rob, for their hours of listening, amazing patience, useful advice, and answering all of our many questions (including the really dumb ones).
Now, almost a year to the day of our initial meeting with Endeavour, we are about to move into our new home, and it's even better than we first imagined."
- Karen and Steve
"As a mature lady on my own I found the thought of building rather daunting and almost decided to shelve the idea and buy an existing home that only met some of my requirements. I can honestly say I approached Endeavour Homes with caution. My initial fears were unfounded as Endeavour Homes led me by the hand and made the whole process stress-free and enjoyable. I love my new home. Its ticks ALL of the boxes and is an amazing house to live in."
"We would like to say that Nadine and the team at Endeavour Homes made building this home a very pleasurable experience. They were easy to work with, co-operative, approachable and great to communicate with. Being new to the district they helped us along the way and worked with us to incorporate our ideas into a plan. If we wanted any changes done, nothing was too much trouble."
