Choosing Mark and Hughes Elite Builders for our Home Extension in Toowoomba was a decision I don’t regret. His team’s work in expanding our lounge room, adding a new bathroom, master bedroom, and creating an outdoor oasis has transformed a century old house while keeping the character in-tact. The blend of old and new is seamless. It’s more than a renovation; it has brought new life into the home me and my brother grew up in.

The quality of work, respectfulness of the team on-site, and the cleanliness they maintained throughout the project was what I was hoping for. I couldn’t be happier with the finished home!

My husband and I purchased a property in July 2022. It was an older home where we had planned to renovate, changing the entire layout and extending the exhausting home. We were also due to have our first child in November. We knew with all the delays and challenges in the construction industry at the time it was almost impossible but we wanted to get the house fully renovated before the baby was due.

Given the size of the job we had a few considerations when picking our builder.
Given my husband works in the construction industry it was important to him to find trades that were knowledgeable and trust worthy.

And given I was half way through my first pregnancy and we were planning on living in the house while it was getting renovated, it was really important to me that we found a team that were going to be considerate and great with communication.

Not only did mark and the Hughes Elite team work a lot of overtime to get our house completed within the time frame but they also accommodated for us living in the house and were so considerate of our circumstances. Mark was also great to bounce ideas off and was able to help with design elements. He was always accessible made the entire renovation process enjoyable.

I would highly recommend anyone looking at either building a new home or renovation to give the Hughes elite team a call!

I recently built my dream home with Hughes Elite Builders, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. As a country person, I wanted to work with a local builder I could trust, and I found exactly that in Mark and his team. From the moment I walked into their display home, I knew I had made the right choice.

Mark and his wife, Jodie, guided me through the entire process with professionalism and care. They helped me with planning, design, and selections, making it so easy for someone like me who isn’t a design expert. They even accompanied me on shopping trips to ensure everything came together seamlessly. Building a home on my own felt less daunting knowing I had their support.

The construction phase was a joy. The team treated me like family and made me feel welcome on-site. They were always polite and never left any work unfinished. The quality of their craftsmanship is outstanding. My new home feels luxurious and complete, unlike some project homes I’ve seen in the neighborhood.

The handover process was smooth, and there were no hidden costs or surprises. Mark and his team took care of everything, and I never felt like just another customer. They made me feel valued and ensured that every detail was attended to.

Working with Hughes Elite Builders was a fun and stress-free experience. They turned my vision into reality and exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone considering building a new home. From planning and design to construction and handover, they are with you every step of the way, making the journey enjoyable and rewarding. Thank you, Mark and the Hughes Elite team, for building my dream home and treating me like family throughout the process.
