Don’t just take our word for it.

We understand that the decision to build a home is significant, both financially and emotionally. That is why it is important to choose the right building company for you. Below is a collection of testimonials from some of our clients:

From the first time we walked into the Lincoln show home, we were impressed with the level of quality and finish. From the beginning of the build process, Hayley, Mike, Chris & Debbie were great to deal with and nothing was too much hassle, despite the restrictions imposed through Covid and supply demands. Our Homestar 6 home is a very warm welcoming home which we enjoy living in and are very proud of. We would recommend Hallmark Homes to anyone thinking of building their new home.

Sue Henderson

We are a young couple with 2 kids that moved from Auckland to the South Island in late 2022. This is our second time building our home from the ground up. If there is one consistent feedback i've received from the building suppliers in our area - it's that Hallmark Homes definitely knows what they're doing. I can attest to this, as we appreciate the expert advice given to help increase the value of our home from the design to the layout in a very practical manner. The consultants do what they say - and are easy and lovely to deal with. With much attention and focus on our build - our building consent was approved in record time - 6 working days! (this is subject to council timeframes of course). We are really thankful to have selected Hallmark Homes to be a part of our journey.

“Hallmark Homes” did an excellent job constructing our house. They were attentive to our needs and preferences, and the quality of their workmanship was top-notch. Communication throughout the project was clear and timely. We are very pleased with the end result and would highly recommend them to others.

Igor and Irina Gaghis

We chose Hallmark Homes to build our new house on our rural property. We had never built a house before so we were nervous about the process. The staff at Hallmark were completely professional, always available to help us, and made it as stress free as possible for us. We are so happy with our new home and cannot recommend Hallmark enough!

Sarah Bennett

From the time I met Hayley the sales person, I felt confident about her approach and knowledge. As we moved through the building process we had a manager oversee each step. Very professional and excellent problem solving skills. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer house. I would certainly recommend Hallmark Homes.

Shelley Forrest

Hallmark Homes was recommended to us not only for their quality of service, but also for their quality of character. We are completely happy with the workmanship, price and timing to complete our New home. Whole Hallmark team is super trustworthy and passionate about construction. 5 stars for communication as well.


Hallmark Homes are awesome. They built my nephew's home and I'd just love to be able to say start a Lincoln Plan for me tomorrow!

Anne Williams

We approached Hallmark to assist with building our dream home. This also being our first home, we were very new to the process and what was involved and Hallmark made this so effortless for us. They were in constant communication via email, calls and face to face meetings throughout the entire build so we always knew at what stage things were at and what was scheduled next. We didn’t feel rushed or pressured into making any hasty decisions also offering up their perspectives on certain choices which made things so much easier. If you’re ever looking at building a home we would hands down recommend Hallmark. You will not be disappointed with the wealth of knowledge, professionalism and workmanship overall.

Lisa & Court Marr

We invested in a Hallmark showhome and got involved in the build halfway through the building process. From our first meeting we were impressed by their friendly, professional and helpful service. The whole process until completion was stress free and exciting to follow. We found the communication from everyone at the Hallmark Homes’ team very honest, transparent and prompt throughout the process. The house is very well designed, sunny and built to the highest standards with above average insulation, ducted heating and double glassed e-glass and meets the highest Homestar certification, which is Hallmark Home’s point of difference. Your home will be a warmer, drier, efficient & a healthier home. The bonus is that a certified HomeStar home could qualify for discounted mortgage rates from certain retail banks. If you visit a Hallmark showhome you will see that their homes stand out from the rest! Highly recommend to build with them.

Nico & Lisa Swanepoel

Our journey with hallmark homes has been simply great. The staff is so friendly and accommodating that you feel at ease straightaway. Staff is very professional and always just one phone call away with prompt responses to our concerns with practical solutions that work in the long run. Quality build and a perfect example of great coordination and team work within a company with the focus always being the customer. The Coconstruct app by Hallmark made the whole process soo seemless and stressfree as we were able to access all information relating to our build in real-time over a click of a button. So smart. We highly recommend to build with Hallmark homes if you are looking for genuinely passionate people who care for your journey as they go out of their way to make sure the process of building is quick and stress-free as much as possible. Thank you Mike, Hayley, Jodi, Chris and Debbie for looking after us

Mihir and Ashwita Khadawala

We couldn't be happier living in a Homestar rated home. It has ensured we are living in a warm and ventilated house which was the perfect environment to bring our newborn into as we moved the week she was born. There are financial benefits too of spending a higher initial amount like cheaper electricity bills in winter and a lower interest rate from the bank on our home loan
