Here is what previous clients have had to say when building with Vanguard Homes:

" We have loved every aspect of building with Vanguard and are so pleased with the end result. It's been the easiest process, from starting out picking our design with Sandra, to colour choices with Jess, to the end walk through with Peter and hand over with Kylee.

It's been a stress-free process and we are amazed at how well we were looked after even once keys have been handed over. Every question was answered promptly and nothing was too hard to achieve.

We love the finished product and can see the professionalism and workmanship that goes into the build. Thank you for a gorgeous house and a wonderful experience, we would recommend you every day!

Kate and Matt, Zuccoli

" Sandra has played a vital role for us to choose Vanguard among all the builders in Darwin. She is trustworthy, efficient, reliable and very honest with all her dealings. We have limited design due to our narrow frontage and long block of land. She helped us design what would best work for us within our budget. The construction of our first home started when we were overseas. We didn't have any doubt at all as they keep us updated every now and then. In less than 4 months, our humble abode has been completed with top of the line workmanship. 

There may be hiccups along the way, but Peter and Kylee were very prompt in fixing it. They had been very accommodating with all our requests and variations. We will definitely recommend them among our friends and colleagues. Looking forward to building another home with them ”

Maria and Roland

" We have been nothing but impressed with the way Vanguard have gone above and beyond to assist us with building our very first home. From the initial process of going through our customised design with Sandra to going through all the internal features with Jess we couldn’t recommend Vanguard enough. We appreciate Jess’s patience and understanding when it came to going back and forth on colours and tiles. It was always exciting to drive past the house every day to see workers wereon site Monday – Saturday completing some part of the house. We are so pleased with the professionalism and timeliness from the Vanguard team. Any concerns we had about the house were answered and fixed within 24hrs. Going through the final walk thru with Peter we couldn’t be any more happier with the end result, our house turned out better than we expected. We would like to thank Peter, Kylee, Jess, Sandra and the rest of the Vanguard team for building our very first home. "

JJ and Jess, Muirhead

" 16 weeks ago we settled on our little chunk of land. Yesterday we did our final walk through.

At the start of this process we had very minimal (minimal) savings and nowhere near a 20 or even 10% deposit. As a first homebuyer the NT government makes it relatively easy for young people (first home buyer's) to get into the market as long as they have a solid job and their finances in sorta check. Aside from that we got our pre approval and it was time to choose a builder, after an initial speed bump we landed on Vanguard Homes. They had come highly recommended from about 5 other couples we knew who had all built with them and I can now see why!

Those who know me would know that outdoor entertaining is key for me, I don't care what's going on inside those sliding doors but outside where the beer and bbq live is me, Vanguard listened to my wants and needs and created a unique design that integrated those needs. (There is fittings for 3 TVs outside)
The house is exactly what I wanted and is delivered on-time and on budget!

Tahlia is very specific about her colours and inside "stuff" however Jess made this process a breeze and didn't bog us down with stupid decisions.
We haven't had any unexpected payments required, no oh that's not in your build contact and anything I have asked them to alter or change has been done without question or comment. Sandra closed our deal and delivered exactly what she said they would. Instead of letting me go outside of the covenant potentially by providing my own shed they adjusted the plans to incorporate a storage room. That saved me a headache with the developer (potentially) and also added a good amount of value to the dwelling.

If you're thinking about it, now is the time to do it. Would I build with Vanguard again? Absolutely, Tomorrow. "

Joshua, Zuccoli

" We've just received the keys to our Vanguard Home and couldn't be happier. The build process was easy, Vanguard were professional and flexible for us throughout. Our house was completed to a very high standard and earlier than initially estimated. The quality of workmanship really shows. "

Zoe and Nile, Zuccoli

" After months of planning, researching and mind changing, I decided to build my first ever home with Vanguard Homes… and I’m glad I did!

From the early days of finalising design and signing contracts with Peter and Kylee, and the colour consultation with Jess, to the later stages of dropping in and borrowing keys from Sandra to visit the house - nothing was too difficult. My first building experience has been nothing but exciting, enjoyable and easy going, all thanks to the entire team at Vanguard Homes.

For anyone looking to build a new home, I couldn’t recommend Vanguard Homes enough! "

Jake Burgess

" My wife and I are extremely happy with Vanguard. The whole team is extremely professional and make building your dream home a breeze. We were surprised how fast the build was and the fact they always had materials on hand so the build never stopped, which allowed us to move into our new home so much sooner. The service we experienced from the team was excellent, from the build process, to end product Peter, Jess and Kylee were always available to answer any questions or put our mind at ease. The after service has also been incredible any issues that have come up have been dealt with straight away, which again sets our mind at ease knowing we have so much support.

Sandra was the key to making our home become a reality, all the extra work she put into making sure everything was complete was just amazing. We cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for our family. I think their work speaks for itself and you only have to go to their display home to see the quality of their homes. We are extremely happy with our new home, thank you to the whole team at vanguard for all the hard work they have put in :) "

Leon and Lucy - Zuccoli

" When my partner and I first decided to build, we had another builder in mind, but I had this gut instinct to shop around first. So I decided that I would go to the other display home and get ideas and see what other builders could offer. I am so thankful and happy that I had decided to shop around.

When I first stepped into the display home of Vanguard, I was met with the friendly, smiling face of Sandra, who was nothing but helpful and listened to what I wanted. From that moment on, I wasn’t interested in any other builders but Vanguard to build our first home.

After having 2 house plans to choose from, requesting quotes, modifications etc, nothing was too hard for Vanguard to organise and get back to me within a reasonable timeframe.

When I finally decided on the house I wanted, the staff at Vanguard where excellent, from choosing the colours, tiles, kitchen layout, electrical layout, to even what oven I wanted, Kylee and Jess were so patient (especially with my mind changing). Also going to the point of chasing down different ovens for me to choose from.

The build process was nothing but a breeze with Vanguard, always there to answer any questions or concerns we may have had. I am so in love with my house and so thankful to have had Vanguard as our builder. I would highly recommend Vanguard Homes to everyone, friendly, professional service who go above and beyond for their clients.

Thank you Peter, Kylee and the professional Vanguard team"

Wilson and Olivia - Zuccoli

" Me and my family had been wanting to have our own home since we came to Australia and we are glad that we chose Vanguard Homes to make this dream a reality! Hands up for professionalism and impeccable quality that the team delivered to us!

We would like to thank Peter and the Team for helping us through the process of getting our first home! From the layout and design to the finishing touches; Peter, Kylee, Sandra and the team were with us to make sure that they give us the best and ensuring we are happy. The whole experience was very good and smooth sailing.

Thank you Vanguard Homes! Thank you to the entire Team. My Family wishes Vanguard Homes to have hundreds of happy customers like us and continuous success over the years to come! "

Rolando and Judith, Zuccoli

" After many months of house hunting in the Northern Suburbs and Palmerston, we were discouraged and getting desperate! We just couldn't find the right house at the right price for our family. We decided building was the way to go! However, time was against us when we made that decision, knowing we'd have to vacate our rental in just a few months.

The excitement was overtaken by stress until we crossed path with Vanguard. We fell in love with their display home and they won our trust and business because they were very responsive in the initial contacts and have been throughout the process. Vanguard was able to answer all of our questions and set us up in no time! Other builders were taking days to respond... Sandra who we met at the display house was very friendly and efficient! We know we have been 'pedantic' customers at times and probably tested their patience but Vanguard staff and owners were always professional and attentive. Jess who helped us with the interior design demonstrated her true passion for what she does by going above and beyond to support us in our many dilemmas, change of mind, insecurities with our choices, etc.

Overall, we really felt like our concerns mattered and all enquiries and requests were responded to quickly and efficiently all the way to handover! Vanguard owners Kylee and Peter definitely take pride in what they do and it shows in the results! We are extremely happy with the final product, our beautiful home! "

Ryan and Anne

" From the moment that my husband and I first inquired with Sandra we felt right away that we already found the builder to trust to build our first home. Our home was finished earlier than we expected. We will never forget that our final walk through was my birthday and the handover was my husband’s birthday. So, our house was one of the best birthday gifts we received. We love that Vanguard accommodated our preferences. The entire purchasing process went smooth. The Vanguard Team has been pleasant, efficient and responsive. Thanks again to all at Vanguard Homes for building us a home we will love and enjoy for years to come. We have told everyone who has asked, how pleased we are with our Vanguard Home and will continue without hesitation to praise and recommend your company. "

Oliver and Denise – Zuccoli

"The experience I had with Vanguard was great. When drawing up the plans, nothing seemed too difficult, even though I changed my mind a few times. This followed through to the build when I changed my kitchen layout last minute. I highly recommend Vanguard Homes to anyone who is thinking of building a new house. The Vanguard team were always so friendly and inviting at every point of contact."

Amber – Zuccoli

"We absolutely love our house, and couldn’t be happier. The quality of Vanguard homes is second to none. We now have a beautiful home for our family, and we can’t thank the Vanguard team enough for all the work they put into building it for us. I would absolutely recommend Vanguard to anyone looking for a new home."

Rebecca and Conrad – Zuccoli

"When we decided to build our own home, we made sure that all options will be considered. We visited several display homes and did a lot of research. Vanguard stands out from the rest. On our first visit, they have already provided us valuable opinions and many layout options which have inspired us while doing our own design. When we were deciding on the layout and interior/exterior selections, we have felt their sincerity to help us come up with the perfect combination. We have done so many changes and they remained to be very supportive providing us expert advice along the way. Thankyou Kylee, Sandra and Jess, we admire your patience. Special thanks to Peter who had ensure the quality of our home, for spending time discussing our needs and keeping his word whenever we ask for something to be done. We are very happy and satisfied with the result of the build. Thanks to Vanguard team, great teamwork resulting to high quality finish. Vanguard is the builder we can proudly recommend. They have built the home we love to live in."

Charlie and Myla – Zuccoli

"My partner and I were visiting friends in Zuccoli when we were sold on building our own home. When we walked into the Vanguard display home we realised that we wanted that exact house with a few modifications but because it was our first home we had no idea where to start and what to do. This is where Vanguard were brilliant, they did all the hard work putting the designs and building contracts together and they were very helpful in suggesting a great broker to help us sort out our finance. All of this made the overall build very easy and quick and our house was ready in 4 months. The finishes are high quality and came standard with Vanguard, whereas with other builders we found that we would've had to pay extra. We are extremely happy with our house and we would highly recommend Vanguard to anyone. Thanks a million."

Tamsyn and Michael - Zuccoli

"Our building journey with Vanguard homes was seamless. The building packages that Pete, Kylee and the team offer are of the highest quality and very flexible. The dedicated team at Vanguard Homes were very supportive in helping us choose a house design and modifying it to suit our block size. Vanguard Homes take pride in every house they build and this really shines through when the handover of our new home occurred. The flawless execution was evident in very room of our house. We would not change a thing!"

Sarah and Shane - Zuccoli

"A massive thank you to Kylee, Peter and the Vanguard team! From day 1 the support has been phenomenal and this is due to amazing customer service and having a great attitude to want to help their clients. The team was always so supportive and very helpful throughout the whole process, always willing to take any questions we have and have prompt responses. The finishes and inclusions are so beautiful and we are so happy with our beautiful family home. Thank you for making our dream a reality and for making this process such a smooth and fun experience."

Sarah and Jeremy, Zuccoli

"Hats off to you Peter, Kylee and Vanguard Staff! You showed us the true meaning of customer service and customer satisfaction. Your attitude, prompt and timely responses and flexibility made our dealings with your team so easy and stress free. Not even a single regret we had in the process of building our first new home.

Thank you for allowing us to experience this wonderful journey in achieving our dream house, for completing and delivering it with excellent quality that is above our expectations. Your commitment to your clients and the level of workmanship are truly recommendable. Wishing for more projects to come! Excellent service at its finest!"

Jos and Renel, Zuccoli

"From the moment we started planning to build a house, the first thing we tried to look in to aside from the available blocks of land our priority is to find a suitable builder. We had met a few along the way but it was Vanguard Homes that stands out. As we all know, we have few bits and pieces that we wanted to have in specifications of our house and would want the least out of the pocket expenses and we're so glad that Vanguard's houses came in as an inclusion to their standard package. Then we met, Peter the owner of Vanguard Homes. Peter is such a welcoming, with brilliant knowledge that takes pride of his work and is a very straight-forward person. He took us to one of his model house and had a run-through with everything. All the specifications of the house, bits & pieces and straight away we knew by heart that we've found the right builder, trust-worthy enough to place our dream house upon his amazing team. The feeling of excitement & thrill started the day when we first sat down with his friendly and knowledgeable team special mention to Jess who made such a great effort in helping us come up with the right decision from the colour matching, tiles, wall paint & every detail of the house.

Finally the building of our dream house has commence first week of Feb 2017 which felt like it was only yesterday fast forward to this day, few months ahead of the said finished date, our Dream House is finally standing tall, gleaming with pride and ready to take us in. From the bottom of our hearts we sincerely thank Peter Kassiou and his wife Kylie for making our dream house a reality, every inch of detail and workmanship that Vanguard Homes has built for us we take pride of them knowing they were built by a top class builder whose done an extra mile and effort to perfection just to make us, their clients happy and greatly satisfied. I highly recommend Vanguard Homes to anyone who is planning to build their new homes, their dream house to choose Peter and his team for you will look back one day and be so happy that you've done the best decision in your life by choosing Vanguard Homes to be a part of the story of your house that will withstand over the years and hold great memories for your family. We wish Peter and the whole Vanguard Homes team more success over the years."

Enrique and Nancy Ferrer, Zuccoli

" We had visited every display home in Zuccoli and from the moment we walked in to the Vanguard display home we were sure that this was the builder we wanted to go with. From the very start Sandra was friendly and not at any moment pushy, she had explained everything we wanted to know when it came to building the house and was helpful with what we wanted. Once we had organised our mortgage and had signed the contract the helpfulness of Sandra didn't stop there, she was very approachable for any questions we had. Kylee & Peter and the team were a breeze to work with, from modifying the design a tad, walking into the office and having no idea what finishes and colours we wanted; they made building our first home a very smooth ordeal and couldn't be happier they both were very approachable and answered all concerns we had and put us at ease. We love our first home and definitely recommend the team at Vanguard Homes. A BIG thank you to everyone."

Scott and Jess, Mitchell Creek Green

"When we decided to build our first home the hunt for the perfect builder began. From the beginning Sandra from Vanguard Homes stood out from the rest of the other companies taking her time to explain inclusions/ processes etc, promptly answering our every question and worries. Vanguard made it easy to see what we were getting with their detailed inclusion list pamphlet, their standard inclusions stood out from the rest of the pack with high end fixtures and fittings. As we were not living in Darwin while the build was happening they worked around us and made it an easy process, also going out of their way to send progress pictures which we truly appreciated. The build was finished well before completion date. You only have to walk through their display house to see the quality and pride they take in their work. We love our new home, and are excited to see what our future in Darwin brings us. Thank you team Vanguard."

Allan and Kate, Lace and Ruby

"Thank you Vanguard. We have been in our new home for a few weeks now so have had a chance to take everything in and honestly we couldn't be happier.  Like many, we spent several hours looking at different display homes and chatting to builders which was quite overwhelming at times and to be honest I can't say that our final decision was an easy one as for us it’s a huge moment in our lives which means there's a lot to consider.

In the end though vanguard did seem to tick all the boxes, they were extremely pleasant and helpful from the first moment we entered their display home. The rep was very welcoming but not one bit pushy like some of the others, we felt comfortable talking to her, all of our questions were answered as she was very knowledgeable and was able to explain any complicated details that we were confused or lost about.  After we had made our choice vanguard made to whole process very easy.
From choosing the size and shape of our house to choosing the colour on the walls it was an easy, stress free experience. We made several adjustments to our plan and added many features and I can't remember one time when we were told 'no you can't put that there', or 'no we can't do that'.  The team at vanguard seem to truly take pride in making their customers happy. They were very honest and trustworthy throughout the whole process and kept us updated along the way. We always felt we could give them a call if there was something we weren't sure of. All up, the whole team at vanguard were a pleasure to work with."

Tim and Clare

"We had a vision for our new home and rather than push their own ideas, Vanguard were all too happy to bring our vision to life, even helping us change some designs and fittings as we went on, all the while conscious of our budget. They really looked after us every step of the way and were nothing but accommodating of our wishes at each phase of the build. We love our new home and would recommend Vanguard every time."

Darren and Nicola, Girraween

"Like all couples building a new home finding the right builder can be Pot Luck. We did not want to chance luck, so visited a number of Display homes by various Builders. Many were very nice homes. Some hard decisions to make. Then we went to a new Display home in Palmerston, by Vanguard Homes. That was our “Eureka Moment”. The Sales Person was not pushy, but extremely knowledgeable. We could see that the tiling, the rendering, the painting etc. were all done by professionals at the top of their class... Our decision was made.

Then we met the owners, Peter and Kylee, a great couple who took pride in all projects they were involved with. Without doubt we had made the right choice. Our house was totally finished under 5 months and we are loving it. Our advice to any potential home builder is to meet with Peter and Kylee. It will be the best decision you ever make."

Rob and Helen Kennon, Muirhead

"It was a big step for my wife and I as we were planning to build our first home, a first home is a big financial investment – you want it done right and you want value. Little did we know it would be an even bigger dilemma to choose our builder! We visited a few display homes and one weekend we visited the Vanguard Homes display house in Zuccoli. We were very quickly impressed. The display home was well built with quality materials and the finishes of the house were stunning! We met Peter on the same day. Peter seemed to be (and proved to be) very experienced, straightforward and upfront. He provided us with lots of information, good advice and options for building as we discussed what we were looking to do. Without delay, we both decided to go ahead with Vanguard Homes for our exciting first build.

Kylee, Sandra and Jess were all very helpful throughout the process, they kept in regular contact and were very prompt in any query and assisted us with all the choices we had to make for our home. The team were all very professional and efficient, Vanguard Homes were quite clearly a cohesive and professional team. Since commencing the build process with Vanguard Homes in August only months later we moved into our new house in December (perfect timing before Christmas). Our home looks and feels wonderful to live in and we are enjoying our time together here. We would like to thank Vanguard Homes for their help to design and build our beautiful house. We recommend the team from Vanguard Homes to all out there who are planning for a quality and professional build experience."

Santosh and Inda, Mitchell Creek Green

"It has been a pleasure to work with Vanguard Homes as our builder - and one of the best decisions we have ever made! Thank you to Kylee, Peter and the Vanguard team for our wonderful first home - custom built with everything that we wanted, superb finishes and most of all within our budget. It was a great experience from day one when we first met with Sandra at your impressive Magnetic display home. We are more than happy with the final product and cannot fault the exceptional service, attention to detail and level of communication that you provide. We have been stress free the entire process (which we thought wasn't possible with building!) because of your professionalism, incredible organisation and willingness to accept requests and constant changes from us. We can tell Kylee and Peter are very proud of their work and have every right to be. So thank you once again for building our wonderful first home and making it such a great first-time experience."

Becky and Van, Muirhead

"We are very excited and delighted to move in. We really made the right choice in choosing you as our builder. You are a straight forward business and easy to talk to. You are reliable, professional and deliver results on time. You made our dream-home come true! Kudos to team Vanguard for a great job!"

Jennifer and Teejay, Mitchell Creek Green

" To Kylee & Peter

What a pleasure to have worked with you both over the last six months. Your professionalism, work standards and attention to detail are beyond perfection and Damien and I cannot express to you how appreciative we are for everything that you have offered to us during our building experience. No job was too big or too small, and the length and effort that was put towards each request was received with great gratification.

Damien and I are now proud owners of a beautiful dream home, which would not have been possible without the determination and hard work that both you and your entire team put in on daily basis.

We cannot thank you enough for all you have done and are so excited and proud to call this house our home."

Damien and Ellen Fisher, Marlow Lagoon

"We have been quite happy with our choice to build with Vanguard. We chose Vanguard initially due to the higher quality finishes included in the build and are still impressed with the high quality of finishes and workmanship that Vanguard have provided.

We were also very happy with the level of communication from Kylee and the team and the patience when we had finance delays from the bank.

I have also been very impressed with the service during our Defects Liability Period with things being attended to within a day or two."

Samantha & Lucas Hayden, Mitchell Creek Green

"We would like to express our thanks, appreciation and satisfaction with regards to the beautiful home built for us by Vanguard Homes. As migrants from the UK we were not sure about the process for building a house in Australia but Vanguard made this very easy from start to finish. They guided us through each step of the process, were always on hand if we needed assistance (and still are!) and didn't make promises they couldn't keep. Every person that we have dealt with at Vanguard or who works alongside Vanguard, from the interior designer, the builders, painters, landscaper etc - have all delivered exceptional service. They have all worked with us in a consultative way that has made our journey so exciting!

The range of designs is outstanding and they really offer something for every budget. That said, there is always something that you want to modify to personalise the design to suit your lifestyle and with Vanguard that is not an issue as they will work with you to accommodate your requirements.

As for the finishes, we have been so surprised and happy with the quality and added touches that are included. Shadowline ceilings (that other builders wanted to charge us extra for), beautiful bench-tops and appliances and then smaller things like magnetic doorstops, under island lighting, swivel taps over the bathroom basin. All of which give the home a luxury finish.

Vanguard is a family run business who really care about the end product that they deliver to you. Just by talking to Peter and Kylee Kassiou who own the business, you can tell that they are passionate about what they do and that they not only want to deliver you a house, but also a home that you will love for many years to come.

There are so many more great things we could say about our experience but we will finish by saying if you are planning on building a house, then we highly recommend that you speak with the Vanguard team - you won't regret it!"

Stuart & Tina du Crôs, Muirhead

"Thank you Kylee, Peter and Jess for our beautiful new home. We would highly recommend Vanguard Homes. The build was quick and stress free and the after build service has been second to none. Kylee, Peter and Jess have always been on hand to answer any of our questions and have turned our vision to reality. We couldn't be happier."

Louise Bowden

"We absolutely loved the way the house turned out. A dream house indeed. The project was done in timely manner with excellent quality finishes. The entire Vanguard team was very professional and fantastic to work with. Thank you so much to Peter, Kylee , Jess and the rest of the team for making the entire building process stress free and as easy as possible. We would definitely recommend Vanguard Homes to all of our family and friends."

Elmer & Ann

"We are so thankful to the rest of the Vanguard staff for building our custom made home!! From start to finish, you guys have been nothing but easy to deal with, friendly and understanding and we couldn’t have hoped for a better team to build our first home. Thank you for making the building of our new home a very enjoyable and stress free experience."

Marie & Dennis Silva, Mitchell Creek Green

"We have just built our first home with Vanguard & would highly recommend them to anyone. They were professional, attentive, excellent value for money and came in well ahead of schedule. Everyone within the team were easy to talk to from Karen in the sales office, Jess for our colour selection and even Larry who finished off our final last minute items. We would like to say a huge thankyou to Peter, Kylee and everyone who was involved in building us a great home."

Kirsty & Dan Payne, Mitchell Creek Green

"When I made the decision to build my home I was recommended a few builders around Darwin from friends so I decided to visit their display houses first. For people that know me, I value professional and friendly customer service the most. From the second I walked into Vanguards Display House I was made welcome by Karen but also did not feel pressured like I did with other company's or on some other instances wasn't even acknowledged.

After a quick walk through of their stunning display house my decision was pretty much made up.

Armed with a long list with what I wanted in my house and a budget, from small modifications through to major structural ones from one of their exisitng plans I met with Kylee and Peter. Nothing was too big or too small, and everything was addressed with a smail and a can do attitude.

Working with Jess was a breeze on the colours and internal items, I gave her a bit of an idea of what I was after and she made it happen, providing the ever needed woman's touch!

The process went smoothly and I was kept in the loop the whole way through, from design to build to the completion and the final handover. I couldn't be any more happier with it.

I personally recommend Vanguard Homes to anyone looking to build. You cannot beat their professopnal friendly service."

Shaymus Frewen

"We are so thankful for our new home; we can’t thank the team at Vanguard Homes enough! The team at Vanguard are extremely accommodating and easy to work with. We went through every display village numerous times, looked at hundreds of floor plans, reviewed a number of builders and Vanguard came out on top for everything we were looking for. Every person we have dealt with at Vanguard Homes has been very professional and easy to work with. The team went above and beyond with every request, before, during and after the build. We had confidence in Vanguard throughout the build and are very pleased with the quality of our home. We have been in our home for almost a month and the schedule of finishes and attention to detail down to the last piece has really made the difference in our home. Friends and family too are impressed with the quality of our home, we do recommend building with Vanguard and we would certainly build with Vanguard again! - Thank you"

Emily & Ben

"We would like to take the opportunity to thank Vanguard Homes for our fantastic new home. The whole process has been stress free and an absolute pleasure. From the moment we submitted our plans we received professional advice and help from Kylee. We then went through to colour pick and Jess was amazing to deal with. On to the build and Peter and Kylee as a team are second to none. The house was completed to an immaculate standard in a very commendable time frame. We spoke with most of the trades throughout the build and found them all to be extremely accommodating and helpful. Vanguard Homes accommodated our every need throughout the entire build and the end result was our dream home built to perfection. We thank Kylee, Peter and the entire team at vanguard homes for making our build an enjoyable and stress free process."

Brett & Melissa Woodland

"Choosing to build our first home with Vanguard Homes was one of the best choices we ever made. Vanguard Homes made the entire building & choosing process super fun and easy. We were exceptionally impressed by the quality and beauty of the entire home, inside and out. A big thank you to Kylee, Peter, Karen and Jess for making this an experience that will be unforgettable. We would recommend and choose to build with Vanguard Homes again."

Rajeev & Sunita

“After our first visit to your display home, we were so impressed that we started thinking about how we could manage having our new home built by Vanguard.

We have now lived in our beautiful, modern house for a month and could not be happier. The entire building process from initial planning right through to completion was professionally managed and ran without any major problems. We felt that we had found a builder who we could trust, who we could talk to and who would listen to what we wanted. It made the process much easier working with someone who was so approachable and who was willing to listen and explain as necessary. We also appreciated your flexibility and the work you put into getting the best prices on things.We were thrilled with the ease of the building and of course the final outcome.

We now have the dream home we planned and we are secure in the knowledge that this is a high quality, well-structured home. Vanguard are to be congratulated for their professionalism and dedication to customer service, and we would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to build a new home.

Thank you for building us such a beautiful home, your kindness, care and generosity to us was extraordinary and really words do not adequately express our thanks.”

Bryan and Eliza

"To Peter and Kylee and to all the staff of Vanguard Homes.

We want to thank you for building our beautiful home. Being a first timer, you have helped us a lot from the design selection that would suit our budget. The paint, tiles and colour selection have been fun and exciting, we did not stress at all. You have been very patient and accommodating with all our queries and respond to our requests promptly. We could not complain at all. Mostly, we have seen how quick your building process has been, yet the quality is nothing but excellent. Thank you so much for making this journey an easy and exciting one for us. We would be proud to recommend you to anyone. If we would be blessed to build another home, we would definitely pick you again without any second thoughts. Thank you once again and God bless! :) "

Allan and Mylene Herejias

"Kylee & Peter were extremely professional in all our dealings with them. Through the entire process, nothing was too much trouble and any changes we wanted made were done with the minimum of fuss and any issues that came up were addressed quickly and efficiently. I consider both Peter & Kylee as being our partners in creating our dream home and we wouldn't have been able to see this project through without their considerable experience and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with the team at Vanguard and we would not hesitate in building through them again and recommend them to others."


"It was an awesome experience going through Vanguard.  Thanks to Kylee and Peter for giving us a stressless quality building experience! I love the way you guys are committed & well organised to your work"


After a thorough search of available builders in Darwin we decided to go with Vanguard. They were highly professional and comprehensive with all information about the build, and what really appealed to us was their flexibility in adapting existing designs to meet our needs.  Best of all there were no hidden costs. 

We were pleased at every stage of the process.  Kylee and Peter were always available to answer any questions we had promptly and to our satisfaction. Our house has been completed to a very high standard and the price was well within budget.  We are so pleased that we chose to go with Vanguard and have no hesitation in recommending them.


Kylee and Peter made the whole process of building a home fun and exciting. The whole team were patient and flexible and their attention to detail and professionalism was second to none. Unbeatable value for money coupled with excellent workmanship and impeccable finishings.

We highly recommend building with Vanguard Homes.

We chose Vanguard with lots of trepidation 6 months ago. Six months later, we have no hesitation in saying that we made the right choice. It started with Karen's friendly show around and prelude at the display home. In no time, Peter and Kylee sorted out our blues and we were onto it. As they say in their website, there were no surprises. The exchanges were transparent and to the point and the building cost is by no means exorbitant.

The team is well organised (thanks to many of them that we did not meet), they spend time to detail, ensure decisions and choices were made well in advance and there is no last minute scurrying around. I made no prompting at any stage and things moved like clockwork.  I must also mention that they managed to finish the place in 5 months which is amazing. 

If I am building another place, I will not look beyond 'vanguard'.

Thank you Kylee, Peter and Karen. We appreciate you commitment and more importantly your professionalism.

Madhi and Kanaka

Pete and Kylee. We thank you from the bottom of hearts for building our 'Happily ever after home'. We are so happy and excited with the end result and we are so glad we came to you. We did our research with other builders but we were never satisfied. But when we found out about Vanguard Homes on a Friday morning, we were at your display home that same day. We never looked back.

Pete. You're the most genuine, understanding and professional builder we have come across. You want nothing more than the best for clients and you make sure we know it. You always let us know what was happening and always wanted to know if we were happy. We couldn't be more happier. You really looked after us and delivered our home to perfection. Thank you so much.

Kylee. You're so bubbly and easy to talk to and have made our building experience stress free. Without you and your professional advice our home wouldn't look as good as it does. You helped us so much, especially with our interior design. You made us feel comfortable with our choices and for that our home looks amazing.

Again, thank you Pete and Kylee and all of the Vanguard Homes team. It has been the best experience and we're so happy with everything you have done for us. We would definitely build with you again.

Zoe & Craig Jones

I would like to thank Vanguard homes for their ongoing support throughout our building process. Kylee and Peter are both professionals and bring with them heaps of knowledge and experience in the building industry along with exceptional customer service. My father is a retired builder, having been a builder in the NT for 37 years and he cannot fault the quality and workmanship that has been delivered in our home. Vanguard use the same contractors for all their homes, some of which my dad speaks very highly of and the quality of their homes speaks for itself.

My Partner and I have built the most non-standard home and have made so many changes along the way, which Vanguard have accommodated. I have had no surprises with Vanguard and nothing has gone wrong throughout our building process, if anything Vanguard have provided above and beyond our expectations. If ever I build again I would ONLY use Vanguard Homes and would highly recommend them as a builder.

I would like to thank Peter for being there every day of the build to check the progress along the way and to ensure that it was all kept on track. I would also like to give a huge thanks to Kylee who has been my support person every step of the way. She knows and understand what the customer wants and will do everything she can to make it happen. She made this experience for me so easy and she was always available to answer any of my questions. This has been the most pleasant non-stressful experience and I can’t thank Kylee and Peter enough. Last of all I would also like to thank Karen at the display home, she is one of the reasons I picked Vanguard as my builder. She is warm and welcoming and also very helpful, not like your typical sales person.

Mel Penglase & Aaron Gepp

Kylee and Peter, Thank you for building our beautiful home, we did a lot of research before we started building. We could not go past Vanguard, the finishes were to perfection. There was not one bit of stress at all. They were more than professional. Great people.

If we build again we will be ringing Kylee and Peter without no hesitation

Thank you so much

Tanea and Randall

When I bought a piece of land in Muirhead I was too anxious how to build and whom to choose as a builder. I went through the websites of a number of builders, visited several display homes and gathered the information about what they are providing and the type and quality of work they are doing. After analysing all I stuck to one and that was "Vanguard Homes". The information provided in the website was quite organised and clear and that gave me an impression that this is what is required from a builder.

Ms Kylee was the first person whom I contacted and asked to show me their recently built house in Muirhead. She was very prompt, punctual and organised. When I met Peter and Kylee both I decided to go with them. They are highly enthusiastic motivated couple and make a great team. They are ready to help the customer in whatever way they can. I got my first home ready in less that five months. I am happy with the quality and finishes they gave. I appreciate Kylee and Peter for whatever changes I made they agreed happily.

I will definitely recommend my friends and anyone who wants to build a new home to Vanguard Homes. Thanks Kylee and Peter for your support and hope you will continue the same in future to and keep your customers as happy as ever..."you are special to me"!

Peter, Kylee and the team at Vanguard Homes have provided nothing short of exceptional service. From the day I began working with Vanguard Homes, they have made me feel a part of the whole process.

From modifying the design of the house, to brainstorming different ideas, they were very accommodating to my needs. Throughout the process Vanguard Homes consulted with me to suggest more cost effective ways of doing things, this allowed me to get those fancy extras. Vanguard Homes understood from day one what I was after, and ensured that I was happy throughout the entire process.

Overall Vanguard Homes exceeded my expectations with quality finishes and outstanding service. This is my first home and my first build experience, without hesitation I would recommend them to anybody, so much that I am working out my next build with Vanguard Homes.

Thank you Peter & Kylee and the team at Vanguard Homes for building my dream home​.

Aaron Muttukumaru

​Choosing Vanguard Homes was the best decision we made. We met Kylee and Peter at a show and since we met they have been eager to help and proactive to make sure we got what we need from our customised home. From the start 'til the finish Kylee and Peter have always been available for discussions and planning and they have been very easy to communicate with, they took all the measures to understand and incorporate the dreams we had about our first home. They have been very patient and made sure that we understood each step of the home building process.

Being first home buyers we cannot stress enough the importance of support and clarity that Vanguard Homes provided to us, we are very happy with the result and have no one else to thank but Vanguard Homes for providing us with a beautiful home.

Arun & Chandra

We whole heartedly recommend Vanguard Homes to all of our friends and family. Peter and Kylee's tireless professionalism has made the harrowing process of building our home in the Territory a smooth and easy process. Thoughout the entire build of our home, they have never sacrificed quality over expediency and always shown excellent value for money, this could easily be seen in their workmanship and pride in their product.

Kylee's patience with all of our queries and variations has really put us at ease. Her depth of experience in the industry is evident in the breadth of her knowledge over every minute detail, From tiles to paint colour contrasts. This she applied with much gusto and a passion put to use, almost as if our home was her home aswell.

With all things said and done, we knew that no matter what happened we have the very best builders backing us all the way. This is why without any reservation or equivocation we recommend Vanguard Homes to our loved ones.​

James Carlos - Johnston

​We would like to thank you and your team for building us the most amazing home. When we looked for a builder we went to some well-established builders.

We compared your houses with many others and decided that your homes were true value for money. We chose the Eclipse 3 but asked for a change in the design that would suit our personal needs and you did this.

This is the first home we have built and we didn't realise how many decisions we would have to make, everything from colours, door handles, kitchens etc in this area Kylee was so helpful and patient making such a big job into so much fun.

From the start you were both more than helpful and continued all the way through the construction, we appreciated the ongoing communication and the contractors used were all the best in their fields. We were so happy to see Peter built our home with the same enthusiasm that he would if he were to build this home for himself.

We cant thank Vanguard Homes enough for the home they have made for us and we would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone wanting to build a home.

Karen and Brian Lewis - Bellamack

My partner and I did a lot of research before choosing our builder, myself being in the industry and my partner having previously built. We viewed several of Vanguard homes and each time they had the same high quality finish.

Value for money they hands down beat the rest and with standard specs that other builders make you pay for. I would definantly recommend Vanguard Homes to anyone, a stress free build which took only 16weeks. Kylee and Peter are honest and professional individuals who will go out of there way to not just build a house, but your home.

Thanks so much Peter and Kylee for our beautiful home. Will build with you again without hesitation​.

Derreck Gepp - Johnston Ridge

Kylee and Peter are exceptional business entrepreneurs and human beings as they understand the customers and are very well versed with their area of expertise. Its been a very smooth ride for me and my husband for our very first home and thats all thanks to these two very wonderful people who went out of their way to make it as easy as possible for us. Nothing that we asked for was very demanding or challenging in fact we always got a positive feedback to steer us in the right direction.

Nipun and I went to alot of builders as we both like to research before we buy, we both were feeling disappointed as we could not get what we wanted and then we went to Vanguard and met Kylee, and it was like a feeling of relief that at last we found somebody who understood our requirements, was very knowledgeble and was an excellent and honest person. Kylee and Peter have both been very professional and honest in their dealings with us and they have always accomodated us if it was possible to do so.

We both would like to thank them very much for getting our wonderful house ready in record time and for being as brilliant as they are.​

Parul & Nipun

When me and my husband bought a lot, we thought choosing a builder is going to be easy, but it wasn't. We went from one display house to another and we couldn't find the right design that we wanted for our house for the budget that we wanted.

I could still remember that very hot day in Palmerston, they opened up a display home village for people who wanted to build - I was exhausted and just wanted to go home. My husband said theres another one on the block that was seperated from the rest, It was Vanguard Homes.

When we got in Peter and Kylee greeted us with big smiles in their faces on that very hot afternoon. We went thru the house and I was very impressed with their ensuites, it was just what we wanted, his and hers robe straight to the bathroom.

Kylee then said they could make a design for us for the same price as the display home with all our changes we wanted.

They were very patient and very professional in handling us newbees. I was just amazed on how quick they were able to build our house, they finished it in 4 months time with no issues. To Peter and Kylee, Jim and I couldn't thank you enough for making our dream of having our own house possible.

I would highly recommend Vanguard Homes to anybody who wants to build their homes.​

Jade Pates

Ben and I shopped around for over 2 months looking at different builder, We found every display home we went into was beautiful and WAY our of our price range.

After a while of looking Ben and I found the Goulburn Design. I gave Kylee a call and was able to get a meeting with her that week. As Ben and I are first time buyers we knew NOTHING about building a home or what was involed. We had our meeting with Kylee and Peter and they went through EVERYTHING with us and explained it all. This took me by surprise as none of the other builders took the time to explain certain things to us. I felt instantly comfortable with Kylee and Peter.

The Building process went so quickly, Our house was finished within 4 months, Once the house was finished Ben and I were completley blown away. We couldn't believe how amazing everything looked and the finishes were amazing.

I am a true believer in honesty and professionalism and that is what you get when you build with Vanguard.

I cannot thank you enough Kylee and Peter for everything you have done for Ben and myself, because of you we now have our very own home.

Krystal Furlonger

5 short months ago I was collecting portfolios of builders with my husband, not only looking at house plans but also the manner in which sales staff approached and spoke with myself and my husband.

I would like to express my sincerest gratitude toward both Peter and Kylee of Vanguard Homes for their exceptional customer service that has been provided to us during this whole process. It has been a very smooth process with Vanguard Homes

Whilst our home was being built we continued to review other builders work for inspiration for our own home only to find we had the best in the business! We asked questions about tiling budgets, to receive the same quality (in Vanguard schedule of finishes) 600mm x 600mm porcelain tiles, other builders were requesting a further $6000. To have tiles to the ceiling in the bathrooms again an extra $6000 charge. My husband Aaron and I realised how lucky we were to have chosen builders that put service and quality first.

I cannot thank Peter and Kylee of Vanguard Homes enough for turning and exciting dream on a piece of paper in a reality. Our home looks absolutely amazing - the finishing touches in the home that we didn't expect to see making it all the more special.  I highly recommend building with Vanguard Homes, no one in the housing market compares to their level of customer service, commitment to the quality of finishes, easy going business manner and most importantly in today’s market: PRICE.  If you build with anyone else, you are paying too much.  Our Home is amazing!!!  thank you guys, we can’t stop smiling.  Kind Regards,

Aaron and Raelene Linfield - owners of the best looking house on the block

Vanguard Homes have been very accommodating on Client’s needs and interests. They are very flexible and welcoming. They even extended their promotion to accommodate my request. Kylee has been very patient in dealing with my clarifications and queries.  They are very friendly and down to earth builder who would want the best for their clients and not for their pockets. Peter has been very professional in dealing with quotations and variations. They would suggest the best option on your minor works at home and would provide excellent quality worksmanship at an affordable price. One can see that he loves what he’s doing (building houses) and is passionate about it. Thank you Vanguard Homes for building a HOME for me in the Territory.

Jefferson Apresto

I recently engaged Vanguard Homes to add another room with ensuite to my existing home. I found them to be highly professional in dealing with me and my family as we lived around the renovation. They were very accommodating to our needs and Peter and his crew addressed all my issues in a highly professional and timely manner. Now that this renovation was a success and within our budget I am eagerly planning the next renovation for Vanguard Homes to do.

Richard Lay - Anula NT

My husband and I employed Vanguard Homes to tile our entire home......they had to remove carpet and old tiles. the finished result was amazing, they were quick, clean and professional..but the best part of their service was that they went the extra mile. In some areas old built in cupboards had to be removed, water damage from leaking shower, Vanguard Homes rang with a quote and then organised the removal and repairs to any walls and shower recesses.... I have to say that I have built several homes over the years but have never dealt with a more professional company.. I would recommend them to anyone...thank you Peter and Kylee for transforming my tired 1980 home....Good luck.

Sharon and Pete Stewart

Vanguard Homes recently renovated our 30 year old bathroom and toilet that required care, time and conversation in what to do within a confined space. What we apprecaited was the time spent discussing the colour of tiles for the floor and walls, the layout of the tiles and paint. It all came together beautifully. I would recommend and use Vanguard Homes again as the quality and finish was fantastic....In fact we have thought that if we build a new home in Darwin we would first approach Vanguard Homes.​

Maria and Brian Johns

We approached Vanguard Homes with a dream in mind about an extension, and renovation to our home, and excavation and building of retaining walls for a larger play area for our children. However, we also had a fixed budget in mind. We are thrilled with the results. Peter worked out a design that would fit out budget, but still fulfill our requirements, and look great. Peter, Kylee and their team, provided friendly professional service. Meetings were arranged promptly and any queries we had along the way were addressed efficiently. We stayed in our home during the process. The contractors were tidy and considerate. Peter personally oversaw all aspects of the project and was onsite daily to liaise with us and check the progress of the project. The project was finished ahead of time. We would certainly use Vanguard for any future project and would have no hesitation in recommend them to anyone looking for a personally customised, quality project.

Thank you Kylee and Peter again for everything.  You run a terrific business and we are thrilled with our new home.
