Meet Our Team

  • Scott, Melissa, Raewyn and the rest of the team at David Reid Taupo - we really appreciate all your help and effort over the last year. It has been a pleasure to work with a professional friendly team where nothing is a problem, and when issues arise to be presented with solutions not excuses. We had a great experience working with you from the initial design through the build and now to the completion. The quality of the workmanship is fantastic. There were no delays waiting for tradies and the build was completed on time. We would not hesitate to recommend the David Reid team in Taupo.

    ON TIME, ON BUDGET, ON QUALITY AND SO EASY! New builds don’t get any better than that!

    Working with Scott and his team at David Reid Homes, Taupo was a pleasure. They are a highly professional unit and very personable to deal with - a real family feeling to their business. They were very responsive to any questions or requests and kept us well updated during the build process. They were able to give us insightful advice on all aspects of the build including products, colours and finishes. We were impressed with the quality of all their sub-contractors, which is a critical aspect of any build.

    We couldn’t recommend Scott and his team more highly
