What Clients Say

I really am so grateful for everything - prior to building everyone tried to talk me out of it and all I heard were horror stories. I have clearly had the dream run - thank you, especially for all your hard work and input. You really got my vision and worked with me. John is clearly an expert which meant I could just relax knowing that the right work would be done.

I had a clear vision of what I wanted and JMBS embraced that vision and made it a reality. I am absolutely over the moon with my new dream home! JMBS Builders were fantastic to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. There were no unexpected surprises and the workmanship is first rate. I can not recommend them highly enough.

Ms. Stewart

It’s not every day you get to work with a company like John McDonald Building Services. They were truly outstanding from the very beginning, right to the end when we picked up our keys - we could not be happier we chose them to help create our dream home. They were so easy and helpful to deal with, they were always accomodating of our budget and made the whole building process fun! The end result is nothing short of incredible. The finishes are all very high quality and the floor plan works so well. We are so proud of our beautiful new home and love living here. Thanks JMBS!

Thanks so much- it really is the home of our dreams and we have received so many compliments from friends/family who love it too!

Mr. & Mrs. Senkowycz 

To John & the JMBS Team,
We can’t thank you enough for making thoughts of our dream home a reality.
From our very first conversation with John over the phone, our first meeting with Chelsea & our dealings with the team we have nothing but praise.
Any issues encountered were dealt with swiftly, John is a man of his word & his handshake is as good as his written contract.
Chelsea is an absolute delight to deal with & Ben a wealth of knowledge
The team took on board what we wanted & worked with us to create a quality built home for our family. Your patience and professionalism was far beyond our expectations & we have not hesitated in recommending the JMBS team to our family and friends
Thank you

Mr. & Mrs. Rosadi

After building our first home in 2009 we decided to go back and build our second property in 2016, after looking at various builders throughout the normal elimination process we decided that we would choose a local building company JMBS,   negotiations from the start appeared to be clear and precise as to what could be offered.  JMBS designed an elegant home for our block which was an unusual shape with two street frontages, the end result was a magnificent home with some nice details throughout, all trades where easy to talk to and work with during the build which reduces stress at these very important times.  I would recommend anyone to give JMBS a call to discuss their next build!

Mr. & Mrs. Varkoly

We would just like to say that dealing with a local building company has been the best thing.  From meeting with us initially and trying to come up with ideas and plans for a house that would suit our block of land to JMBS being so approachable with any issues or concerns we may have had through the building process.  You were open to incorporating our own suggestions and helped build these into the design.
Being able to talk to Ben or Campbell on site was a huge bonus.
Thank you all

Mr. & Mrs. McCallum

John McDonald came to us via a recommendation from Ray White Real Estate. After scouring project builders within the greater Sydney area, without success, we decided to give a local builder a go and we were not disappointed. Ultimately we signed a fixed price contract.
On first meeting with John McDonald (Principal) and his daughter Chelsea (Interior Designer), both Lynn and I felt immediately at ease, in particular the wide choice of house and land packages in our desired location.
The journey through the process with John & Chelsea, from initial quotation to the final handover of our new home was well managed.
A fixed price contract and tender documents were agreed and signed and, in particular, we were impressed with the quality of inclusions
Combined with a relaxed approach to the project, all trades we encountered during the build were both courteous and eager to help. In particular, the return of phone messages was outstanding from both trades and head office.
We love our completed house! Lynn and I would have no hesitation in recommending John McDonald Building Services Pty Ltd to any prospective client.
Well done! And thank you.

Mr. & Mrs. Lill

The building of our dream home was inspired by a concept home designed by John McDonald Building Services. We were after something unique and the large building companies all seemed to be offering the same product and charging an arm and a leg to make modifications. John and his team helped us to design a beautiful home which suited our character and met all of our needs and more. We were able to include design features specific to our tastes and modify the plans to ensure that the house design was perfect for our family needs. With beautiful inclusions and finishing touches, John and his team were able to build for us an amazing home. We have strangers pulling up to the front of our house to complement us on the house and ask who built it.
The build went very smoothly and in hindsight went rather quickly. Any issues along the way were addressed immediately and solutions provided. Ben as Site Manager was very approachable and listened to ideas and concerns. He took a lot of pride in his work and added a personal touch to creating the finished product.
I really enjoyed building with a local builder who values his product and values the relationships formed with his clients. It was nice being involved with such a dedicated family business, with Chelsea guiding our selections and providing advice, Ben as site manager and of course John, who helped us from the concept stage to completion. If you are interested in building a quality, unique home with a trustworthy builder, I would recommend John McDonald Building Services for the job

Mr. & Mrs. Villanueva

Having built 3 homes in the past, we decided our fourth would be something very different.
After a very extensive and expensive search we thought we had found a succesful builder however their designs and budget were worlds apart, thats when we approached John McDonald Building Services. Our experiences from then on were totally different.
The first meeting with John, his designer and pool builder were very encouraging. They all contributed to a very acceptable design and best of all, the costing was within our budget.
Johns experience and persistence had our difficult design passed through Council within the timeframe suggested. We are now well on the way, and are very pleased with the results.

Mr. & Mrs. Swan

We chose John McDonald Building Services because we wanted a customised house design without the expensive price tag.
John always does the right thing by his customers and was responsive to our questions throughout.
He went out of his way to help us deal with council and move in on time and we are very happy. Thanks John!

Mr. & Mrs. Cuganesan

We love the home and are constantly amazed at the beautiful and quality of the finishes!

Ms. Cordina

From design through to construction, John has been professional, always willing to help and a sheer pleasure to deal with. He listened to us, worked with our ideas and turned our vision in to a reality with the utmost care and consideration.
His unique homes are built with quality products and professional trades and the results are a truly outstanding home that we are very proud of.
We also had a few laughs with John and his crew along the way which has made building our home even more special, and one that we will always cherish.

Mr. & Mrs. Kowaliw

Dear John,
I am writing to you to express our sincere thanks for doing such a great job building our house.
We are so impressed with the finished product of our home. We would like to thank you for your time and guidance you provided throughout the building process. You were always accesible to us and kept us up to date with all that was going on.
Most pleasing and surprising to us was the timelines in which you built our home. We were able to move in within 5 months of building our completely finished home – thank you.
Can you please extend our thanks to Alan, many who visit our home comment on his eye for detail and craftsmanship as a carpenter

Mr. & Mrs. Frost
