Chartwell Homes was founded in 1978 by Allan Hartwell, and in 1986 Tony and Judy Martin joined the business. Both Allan and Tony are hands-on experienced builders who pride themselves in a job well done, and in keeping up with modern building practices. Judy works in the administration side of the business, ably assisted by Jo, who works part time.
"The first and most important ingredient in our design and build service is trust and honesty between our clients and ourselves. Building a new home should be an enjoyable experience for all involved, so we want our clients to feel comfortable with us," says Allan. "We can build homes to suit all budgets and pride ourselves on spending extra time in the design stage to ensure that the plan is perfect for the site, the views, the sun and our clients special requirements".
Tony adds "We treat every home as if it was our own, and offer a team of people who are as enthusiastic about your project as we are. A high percentage of our work comes from return business and referrals from satisfied customers".
Our mission: "To provide quality homes that represent excellent value for money, regardless of the budget."
Our Goal: "To have satisfied customers, who will recommend us without reservation."
Chartwell Homes have been consistent winners in the Registered Master Builders "Home of the Year competition", and in 2004 won the National award for the best home in New Zealand, beating 111 entries in that category.
We are not a franchised depot - we are locally owned and operated - since 1978 - and we care about what we do!!
