We have clients who are happy to speak with you about their building experience.


“We couldn’t be happier with our new home. Don, Leah and their fantastic team of builders and trades people were amazing. When we heard Dons nick name of “Do it right Don’ from some of the tradies they weren’t kidding. Don made sure everything was spot on. He has a great eye and mind for detail and we appreciated his old school craftsmanship. Leah’s communication was excellent, the full transparency with our budget made it a stress free build. We were even able to go overseas for 6 weeks in the middle of the build. We would highly recommend Edwards Construction to anyone looking for a beautiful home and a stress-free build.”

-Mark & Krista Cattanach

“We would like to thank Don & Leah and the team at Edwards Construction for building our beautiful new home. Their communication and professionalism throughout the build with regular meetings and emails, we were informed every step of the way. The subcontractors Don & Leah use have worked with them for many years. They all commented Don is conscientious, reliable and an excellent builder. We agree and have found both Don and Leah will go that extra mile to ensure you are happy with everything throughout the project. Don worked with us on some changes to our original plans to give us exactly what we wanted. Don’s expertise together with his attention to detail and the quality of the team’s workmanship was exceptional. It has been an absolute privilege to work with Don and Leah creating our new home. We would thoroughly recommend Edwards Construction to anyone looking to build their dream home.”

“We are so happy with our new home – Don, Leah and the team were awesome. They were friendly, put us at ease, nothing was a problem, they answered all our questions of which there was many and their communication was impeccable, keeping us updated on a weekly basis on the progress. I would highly recommend working with Edwards Construction and if we were ever to build again they would be first in our list to approach. Well done Team Edwards you guys rock!”

“Edwards Construction came highly recommended, and we are so glad we met them. Don, Leah and their team were amazing to work with, they are all such genuinely nice people.

We would recommend them to anyone wanting to build a beautiful home.”

-Marty and Correna Rodrigues

“Engaging Edwards Construction Ltd ( Don and Leah Edwards ) to build our home in Pegasus Town has been one of the best decisions we have made. Recommended by a friend ( who has also had their home built by Don )  we are very pleased with the house and follow-up service since our taking up residence. Under demanding circumstances created by the Covid-19 lockdowns Don and Leah exceeded our expectations in all aspects of the construction including ensuring our budget was met – this assisted by the cost of changes made through the build being offset by unexpected savings being achieved through Don and Leah’s joint efforts. We would recommend Edwards Construction Ltd to anyone looking for a reliable and conscientious building team who it is our experience take great satisfaction in a job well done.”

-Brett Mochan

“We feel extremely fortunate to have found Don and his team to build our home. Continuously throughout the build we were told by independent trades/engineers working/inspecting that we had an ‘old school quality builder’. We heard this phrase many times during the build and weren’t quite sure what it meant until the end of the build when we moved in and 6 months on haven’t found one defect since handover. Don’s experienced, particular and takes a huge amount of pride in his work and it shows in our forever home. I would push for my closest friends and family to use Edwards Construction if they were to consider building in the future. Thanks so much for everything.”

-Prue Leefe

“Real Builders are real people with really great attitudes, experience, advice and integrity! As first time home-builders, we were thoroughly impressed with Don and his team. Right from the start, we were guided through the entire process of the building and finishing of our home. During this time, there was much laughter and great harmony between Don and ourselves. We believe there would be very few people in our position who could honestly say they built their first home with no problems whatsoever. This was down to Don’s expertise and excellent communication. As his clients, we were impressed with his knowledge of the building industry and his skill as a Master Builder in his own right. Having the same building team on site every day is of immense benefit, as the continuity and high standard of work is maintained. Customer service such as this is a rarity these days! In recognition of Don’s superb workmanship, our home achieved the Gold Award for Canterbury and the Gold Reserve National Finalist in the 2007 House of the Year competition. We would never hesitate to recommend Don to any future home-builder”

-Bob and Louise Crawford

“From our first meeting with Don, we felt that he was on the same page as us, he knew what we wanted the house to look and feel like straight away.
We felt so comfortable with Don that we commissioned them to build the house straight away.
Don and his team did such a fantastic job of our new home that it ended up surpassing our expectations, the pride that Don and his team have in their workmanship is terrific to see, they kept the project on time on budget and in the process managed to create an award winning home that we are proud to show off.
Don and Leah have such a passion for creating that special home it shows in the details and the way that they do the job. Thanks Don and Leah for giving Debbie and I our dream home”

-Andrew Bulman

“When we decided to build, a friend strongly recommended Real Builders as they were exceptionally pleased with the company’s performance.
Right from our first meeting Don and Leah were a pleasure to deal with. When we presented our plans they made helpful suggestions when required and pricing was prompt, upfront and transparent.
It was exciting to see our home grow from the ground up and Real Builders made the experience hassle-free. We remain very impressed with the quality of work provided by Real Builders and their sub-contactors.
As a consequence we would strongly recommend Real Builders to anyone wanting truly professional builders”

-Anne & John Bartlett

“Being a sub contractor in the building industry for over 13 years I get to see a lot of different types of quality when it comes to a new house build. So when it came time to build our own dream house Don was the first builder to call. He didn’t disappoint either, right through the building process he made things easy and the end product was one that i could be proud of. Don’s always on the top of list of chippies i would recommend to anyone wanting a quality home”

-Glenn Hedges, EC Fixers Ltd
