Franchisee comments

Simon Collett, director of one of Milestone Homes leading franchises, Nelson Bays, says the Milestone Homes brand offers a smart and simple way of constructing a home, compared with other residential housing companies’ complex design and build process.

“Milestone Homes is about smarter specifications,” he says. “We use great quality, New Zealand manufactured products, but entry level or second tier up rather than high spec products. The quality is the same, but we’ve looked at smarter ways of constructing a home.”

He says all Milestone Homes plans have been designed after researching and developing the most cost effective way of completing each stage of the build. “We’ve worked out the most cost effective way of putting a roof on, and that’s the way it is done for every Milestone Homes plan,” he says. “We’ve taken some of the complexity out of building a house and made it simpler to understand for the home purchaser that’s never built before.”

Milestone Homes’ proven house designs have been created by an in-house draughting and estimating team, with careful thought put into every single aspect of each home design, so that the homes are affordable, comfortable, durable, and practical.

Milestone Homes is dedicated to building quality, low maintenance, modern homes. So, when it comes to building materials, we use top quality products from reputable New Zealand suppliers, made to withstand New Zealand conditions. Our standardised designs and optimised measurements let us secure great rates from our suppliers and tradespeople.

“Having been involved with Milestone Homes from 2007, it is incredible to look back at how far we have come. Without deviating from our core value of providing exceptional value for money we have created something very unique and special.”
