Google Certified Reviews

We spent some considerable time over many months visiting project display homes in several widespread locations reviewing countless floor plans in our desire to shortlist a builder with a house design that we would like to have built for our retirement home.There was one builder that stood out to... us amongst all of the display villages that we visited and that was Sorensen and Caldon who had a couple of display homes at Sovereign Hills in Port Macquarie. It was a combination of the layout, inclusions, look and feeling of a quality build that attracted us at first. When we got down into the detail of our requirements including design, inclusions and fittings, material and colour choices, etc., we realised too that the people at Sorensen and Caldon would make this an easier process for us than we had previously thought.From our initial contact at reception to signing the building contract, we were more than happy, confident and appreciative of the advice and guidance that we were given reassuringly along the way from Kylie, Julie, Kate, Adam, Andy and everyone we came in contact with at Sorensen and Caldon.That reassurance continued right through the building process to completion with thanks as well to all the trades people and suppliers involved from ground preparation right through to moving in. Along the way, we were made welcome to view and discuss any aspect of the construction of our home. We appreciate the excellent care and attention to every detail and the willingness under which our several extra requirements that we came up with were accommodated. The trades people and suppliers that Sorensen and Caldon engaged were simply fantastic and we should mention especially the framing and carpentry, electrical, kitchen, laundry and bathroom fit-out, painting, tiling and flooring, and our supervisor Andy.We are very happy and most appreciative of the efforts Sorensen and Caldon put into making our retirement home something that we really enjoy and have every confidence that we have a very well- built home. The workmanship put into it throughout, including the paths and driveway is commented on in a complimentary way by those who have visited us or have stopped as they go past to enquire into who built our home. We are happy to tell them, and others in conversation, that Sorensen and Caldon built it and willingly recommend them.Thank you, Adam, Andy and everyone at Sorensen and Caldon.Rob and Sydread more

We always believed that with a good design combined with meticulous construction technique, rigorous project management and robust teamwork a great builder could turn our bare site into our special building. As customers embarking on the selection of a builder, we always hoped and trusted that... these key fundamentals would be at the very core of the company that we chose.Thank you Sorensen & Calden for being the company that delivered on this belief for us and more!From the office team to each and every contractor who worked on our home, the key values of trust, passion, commitment to quality, and above all open communication underpinned our relationship with you from beginning to end. The shining star however was the key principal, Adam Ferris, who treated the construction of our retirement dream as if it was his own, irrespective of size and cost, continuously striving to ensure that our vision was met at every stage.

Designing and building a new home with Sorensen and Caldon was an absolute pleasure. From our first meeting with Adam and the team we felt that we could express our ideas and thoughts with the reassurance that they listened and responded in a professional manner. The craftsmanship and quality of... inclusions were superb. The admin team were very welcoming and helpful making the process proceed with ease. All trades people were very high quality and took a lot of pride in their work resulting in a spectacular result. We also found that the display homes and incredibly helpful sales team in them made our house building journey a great one. We would wholeheartedly recommend Sorensen and Caldon if you want to build a beautiful house at a competitive more

We recently moved into a new house custom-built by Sorensen & Caldon on a sloping hillside site, with several design features that made the build challenging. I am delighted to say that Sorensen & Caldon did an exceptional job throughout, and we are extremely happy with the result. The quality of... the build and end result was excellent, both the structural elements and the finish details. This attention to detail is especially comforting given the house is bushfire-rated - we felt very confident about ember entry protection when, just after completion, a large bushfire came close to the house (without issue). Crucially the house also finished squarely on budget, with the only variations being those we had requested. Sorensen & Caldon are a very professional, high quality, and high integrity outfit and I would strongly endorse them for any new building more
