Architectural Home Design and Build

Chris and Tracey bring passion, enthusiasm and over 22 years of home building experience, nine of which have been spent as owners and operators of the David Reid Homes Southland franchise.

Their commitment to excellence has resulted in a great reputation for both quality and service. Chris and Tracey’s partnership has produced many gold award winning architectural homes, several national finalists and national award winning homes. They work together as a unit to successfully manage their team and produce outstanding results for their customers.

"We joined the David Reid Homes team in 2005 because we believed in the quality and design of their homes. We know for most of our customers it’s been a lifelong dream to build their own home and we understand the importance of creating a home specifically for you, your family and your lifestyle. We pride ourselves on listening to what you want and need in your home and being able to provide it."

Both Chris and Tracey are born and bred Southlanders. Their business exemplifies good management, and having such a good reputation in the industry means they attract the best builders and trades people. They have repeatedly won Registered Master Builders Federation awards in several categories as well as winning the National Award for New Homes, $350,000 - $450,000. These awards are clear proof that they deliver quality work.

As Chris and Tracey state, “Our philosophy is all about quality not quantity. We genuinely believe in building superior quality homes for our clients. We are very passionate about David Reid Homes and are committed to offering an excellent service in both the design and the quality of the homes we build.”

All contracts are based on a fixed price and are delivered with the assurance of a Master Builders Guarantee.
