About Simonds

The Simonds story all started with a passionate family man, Gary Simonds. He envisioned a builder that Australians could rely on to guide them through the process of crafting their perfect home, and this vision remains at the heart of Simonds today with our commitment to building quality and affordable homes.

Over the last 75 years in business, we’ve not only shaped what Australia looks like, but more importantly, how Australia homes.

Home. For most of us, that’s the Great Australian Dream.

More than a house, home is where we find comfort. For 75 years, we’ve worked hard, through invention and innovation. Making this Great Australian Dream a reality by placing homeownership within Australia’s reach.  

That’s what moved Gary Simonds to build the very first ‘Simonds’ home, for his mum back in 1949.  We’ve given every home the same care since, because to most Australians who build with us, it’s their first time too. 

We’ve helped shape Australia. Few can say that. Whether we’re looking back at the homes of yesteryear, what we’re building now, or everything that’s still to come. We’ve not only shaped what Australia looks like, but more importantly, how Australia homes.

It's The Simonds Difference.

We don't build a house for the building, we build it for the life that fills it - your life. With a hands on touch, homes that are built to last and award winning designs to choose from, know that your dream is in safe hands.

A hands-on and personalised touch.

From the very beginning, Gary Simonds used to personally inspect every Simonds home before handing over the keys. It’s this philosophy, built around hands-on customer service and genuine connection, that drives our friendly team of New Home Specialists, Customer Relationship Coordinators and Site Supervisors today.

Built with care; built to last.

At Simonds, we’re first and foremost, builders at heart. Our skilled and passionate team of architects, engineers and builders treat each home as if it was their own. What sets us apart isn’t just our Lifetime Structural Guarantee or rigorous commitment to quality assurance. It’s the belief that we don’t build a home for the building; we build it for the life that fills it. Which is why, you’ll experience first-hand the care and consideration that goes into every home we build.

Award-winning style.

Over the last seven decades, we’ve picked up countless industry awards. These accolades are testament to the design excellence and attention to detail shown in every home we build. Our country is home to all — and because belonging looks different to all of us, ‘home’ will always look different too. Regardless of your lifestyle or your unique personal vision, with Simonds, you can feel confident that we’ll bring our award-winning touch to every corner of your home.
