Testimonials

I was referred to Activa by a friend whose house was built by Activa. Professional and caring are the two words that describes Activa aptly. We started building with Activa in Oct 2022 and the 2 storey build is now nearing lock-up. We did not encounter any of the delays that other builders (especially the big ones) are having and the workmanship has been top class. It has been a fantastic journey so far dealing with Peter Burnside and Sharon during the planning, designing and selection stage and with Pete during the construction. Activa have an open line of communication to anyone including Jason and have been very responsive in answering to queries and solving issues. We have built 2 houses prior to this and Activa stand way above any of the other builders. I will update the review once the build is complete. Definitely recommend Activa to anyone considering to build a quality home.

Good is an understatement of what Activa Homes is and the services they provide. The two closest words to what I would describe Activa Homes are magnificent and outstanding. Everything that this company does is done professionally. Emails were replied within a jiffy, matters and issues were answered promptly, and most importantly, the feeling of being put in the dark was never experienced. Given that we’re from Malaysia, not only was our new home our first foreign purchase, but everything from the documentation and meetings to the signing were done via email or a communication platform. Though it is quite true that purchasing a home from a different country is daunting, Activa Homes has proved otherwise. Every stage of the development was met with sheer excitement and an abundance of smiles. Deadlines were always met and expectations were transcended at every point of the development. Everything was done with heaps of care and attention which made our confidence and trust in Activa Homes to grow throughout the entire development. We’re beyond thankful and will always remain indebted to Activa Homes for their services and hospitality. They’re Director - Jason Janssen is genuinely the most humble and down to earth person we’ve ever met. The Activa Team has definitely become a part of our family. I sincerely appreciate everything that they’ve done for me and my family and would 101% recommend their services to anyone seeking to make their first purchase or subsequent purchase(s). Should you intend to experience a successful home completion even during the most challenging of times, Activa Homes is your perfect partner and should be your first choice. Look no further than Activa Homes! PS. do expect to have a lot of fun when dealing with Activa Homes. They have the tendency to put a smile on your face every single time. 😃

Kong Wai

We were introduced to Activa Homes group by a friend who had built with Activa and highly recommended them to us..  We were very impressed with the final product of their house and that started our building process with Activa. As it was our fist time building, we were not sure what to expect and having spoken to a few reputable builders in Perth, we decided to go ahead with Activa. (more…)

Hi Peter, Yes the down pipe has been fixed.  Thank you for rectifying this.  This once again demonstrates what an outstanding company Activa is.  The service your team has given prior, during and after the construction has been fantastic.  I can’t recommend Activa enough!  Thanks again.

Will definitely advise people in the future to build with Activa due to being so hassle free throughout the build.  Had hardly any problems and were quick to rectify.  "Stress Free Build".

Jac & Tisha

AD helped built our first custom built home and today we received our keys! AD team has been amazing since day one. Without them, we could not have built our dream home so smoothly. I am a very particular customer, some say demanding. I ask millions of very detailed questions and not once did AD team made me feel that I was a pain, even when my closet friends and family members said I was. Nothing was ever too difficult for AD team. They are always polite, honest, professional and very accommodating. They will do their best to source almost anything we wanted for our house and offered alternative solutions when needed. I found AD treats their sub contractors well. All their sub contractors work well together and they take pride in their work and finish them well. I recommend AD to anyone anytime! Thank you team AD.

Activa made this process so much easier for us.  They take the pressure of building a house away.  They are always going out of their way to help clients.  We are very grateful with the staff and satisfied with the construction and service standards.

Jamie & Marcela

What I have always found rewarding working with clients such as yourselves, is you invest 150% of energy into your work and you have always prided yourselves on producing quality in everything you do. This is evident in the quality of business you have developed and grown since your inception.  You are respected by your suppliers and trades and all say nothing but wonderful things about you.  Your positive energy is remarkable and definitely makes working with you both extremely satisfying and rewarding. You have the ability to say thank you and show your appreciation to your suppliers and trades and again, it is those simple little one percenters that make the experience of working with you both so rewarding. Lastly, I regard you as friends as I have shared a wonderful journey with you watching your various businesses grow. Working with the team at Activa Developments is both enjoyable and rewarding and your success has derived from hard work and sacrifice.  Congratulations.

I would like to express that it has been a pleasure to deal with Activa Developments since day one …which was quite a few years ago. The professional and structured yet flexible way that the company operates is a credit to everyone in the company. We have seen ups and downs over the last few years but throughout there has been a mutual and consistent business relationship amongst us that I am proud to be part of. In all this time I have only ever needed to attend the office once (as most of our work is on site) however it immediately occurred to me that this was not just some sterile office… it had people that were enthusiastic, helpful and professional. Administration within Activa is extremely well organised, accurate and structured. I have never found it to be a problem to get the answers that I require. If you have ever had a chat to Jason, you would know of his positive and enlightening attitude that he portrays and I think that this greatly influences the whole Activa team. He is quite a mentor and motivational with the knowledge to match.  I particularly would like to thank Jason for the many referrals that I have received over the years  from him. Keep up the great work ACTIVA!!

Contractor

Would highly recommend Activa to anyone building.  I have found this build to be of great quality.  All trades were friendly and professional and the staff at Activa were extremely committed to quality outcomes.  Thanks Activa.

Brad

Very pleased with the process of building our investment property with Activa.  The attraction for us, outside of providing a competitive price and excellent service, is that we had access to the owner of the business and weren't roadblocked by a receptionist like many builders we had used previously.

Josh & Gemma

We have been Activa Developments Insurance Brokers since 2011 and have developed a great relationship with Jason, Sharon and the team. Activa are friendly, reliable and easy to deal with. Nothing is too much trouble for Activa. It is a pleasure dealing with Activa and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering building or developing.

Supplier

It's very, very easy to get along with the Activa team. We share the same philosophy in trying  to always exceed our customers expectations. Just a few minutes with Jason and Peter and you realise this is not just another 'spiel'. These guys are the real deal and you can't not like them.

To all the team at Activa Development’s, I have loved working for you all over the number of years due to the fact that everyone that I deal with is personable with the way they go about their duties.

Name Withheld – Client

It must be said that Activa is a loyal client of ours – in an industry where costs can often overshadow long term relationships, I feel Activa has a willingness to form long term supply relationships. Internally we as a business know this and act on any concerns with urgency. If there are any issues generally Peter will call and communicate early.
