My wife and I are extremely happy to have gone with MJS Construction Group. Very top quality and reliable. I will highly recommend you to talk to this Construction Group if you are building your dream home.

This was our first build and we were very lucky that MJS Construction Group was recommended to us. We were building during the challenging time of Covid, with shortages of building materials, lockdowns, price rises and still Jeff and his team managed to complete our house ahead of schedule. It was completed to the highest standard and on budget. The whole process was very transparent, with no hidden costs, all fees were explained and most were included in the contract. Jeff's communication was excellent, and kept us updated on the progress of the build weekly. He is very knowledgeable and always ready to share his expertise and advice. We will definitely be recommending MJS Construction Group to our friends and family.

We recently have moved into our new house completed by MJS Construction Group and are very happy with the house. Jeff and the team take great care and pride in the work they do. In particular, we found Jeff to be knowledgeable, transparent, reliable and responsive.

Jeff and the MJS team went over and above to deliver an outstanding dual occupancy build for us. Even with lockdowns due to Covid 19 they were able to manage and finish our build on time with premium quality and within our budget. They communicated with us weekly and guided us to make the whole process seamless. We highly recommend them to anyone requiring a new build.

Jeff and his team are fantastic, couldn't recommend them high enough

Jeff has completed a number of projects for me. MJS always keeps me well informed and delivers a quality result within a promised timeframe. I highly recommend them for planning, design and construction of dwellings, especially dual occupancy units.

Jeff and the MJS group made our dream house come true and we cannot be thankfull enough!This is the "one in a million" builder, highly recommend!

We have recently finished a rear extension with Jeff and his team. The whole process from planning until after completion was carried out in a very professional manner and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Jeff continually kept us informed throughout the whole process and his attention to detail has resulted in an extension we are thrilled with. We would gladly use them for any future building works, in fact I doubt if we would use anyone else!

MJS Construction group just completed construction of two townhouses for us & our partners in mid December 2020. The overall project was completed in less than 10 months despite Covid19 restrictions that were imposed during the build. We cannot speak highly enough of the very high standard of the completed townhouses. We were touched by Jeff, Daniel, Josh & dedicated team of trades’ attention to detail, their dedication & quality finish. Special thanks to Jess & Guy also. The professionalism of the whole team is outstanding. We are very pleased with the result!Considering this was our first project - thank you Jeff & teamRoman & Nonna

We used MJS to complete our duplex. This is my experience dealing with them.I found Jeff to be man of his word and a straight talker. When he says he will do something he makes sure it is done. He also follows up with you to make sure the job is completed. Even after 6 month of completing the build he still keeps in touch to see how the house is and if anything needs to be repaired. From what I know some of the other builders don't want to know you once the project is completed. So it is a very big plus and peace of mindAlso I found that Jeff is a trustworthy person. He will not lead you on with vague promises. He will let you know straight up if it can be done or not. If he is not sure he will follow up and give you an answer. He is also very knowledgeable and I mean not only text book but also practical real life building knowledge. When you want something different he usually comes up with a solution for them.Build was completed couple or weeks before the deadline. The attention to detail was great and was on budget.This was my experience dealing with Jeff and MJS Construction. If you are building I highly recommend giving him a call as you have nothing to lose but gain a very good builder.

Our project was a full internal renovation which included some very complex structural changes. Jeff and his team at MJS Constructions came highly recommended from friends. After meeting with a number of architects and builders, our first meeting with Jeff left us absolutely clear that he was the one to run our project.Jeff was very knowledgeable and provided clever suggestions that made our layout more workable and he was transparent from the beginning about what could and couldn’t be done within our budget. Danny worked patiently with us through the selection process and we were very impressed that lots of little important details that are often ‘extras’ were in fact already incorporated into the contract. Provisional sums were generous and so our project came in on budget with no hidden extras.The communication during the project was outstanding. Jeff contacted us at least weekly during the entire project to provide an update and took us through regular walk throughs so we could see the project progress, ask questions and check in on details along the way.His team of highly skilled professionals worked extremely hard during the pandemic period which posed big challenges with supply shortages and restrictions. Despite this, they continued to deliver an outstanding high quality result, right on time.One of the many extra things that delighted us was Josh ‘the finisher’ who spent the last two weeks meticulously checking every detail, addressing any issues and setting up/configuring our appliances so that our home was truly ‘move in’ and ready to enjoy.We absolutely struck gold with Jeff and the MJS team. He is an outstanding Project Manager with a strong attention to detail. He provides excellent communication and was always honest and transparent. Like everyone, we had heard 100’s of horror stories about builders and, being our first major project, we were nervous. However, we have had an incredibly positive experience throughout and we can not thank Jeff and his team enough.We absolutely recommend MJS Constructions as a 5 star builder. Jeff is our go to builder now and after such an amazing experience, we look forward to working with him on other projects down the track.

We've just moved into one of 2 townhouses built by MJS Constructions. We can't praise thework done by Jeff and his exceptional team enough!!. The build was meticulously followed by Jeff on a daily basis and contact with us was prompt and clearly communicated. The level of work is visibly high.We employed the services of MJS Constructions after falling victims to a charloten builder that left us financially and emotionally devastated. This company was just what we needed to get us back on our feet and we're thrilled in our home.Do yourselves a favour and use this company - you will be very happy with the result. We are happy to be contacted for feedback.

It is extremely hard to find a good builder in a competitive market. This is the fourth building project and third dual occupancy project that we have done so we are quite familiar with the process. By far Jeff and his team have been the most responsive, thorough and knowledgeable of all that we have dealt with. Jeff exceeds all expectations as a manager and communicator. He promises to call every week and does so without fail, he is hardworking and transparent, and his attention to detail is exceptional. He also listens, which is probably the most important characteristic of a builder to have. He has a fantastic knowledgeable team and his tradesmen are very respectful and experienced.We are overjoyed with the results of our dual project, exactly as we expected, no less, probably more. I cannot recommend Jeff enough. I would be very happy to do another project with Jeff, he has become our go to builder. The most heartfelt thank you to Jeff, his team and tradesmen at MJS.

My husband and I researched extensively and spoke with numerous building companies before engaging Jeff for our duplex building project and we are very glad about our decision. From the beginning ( before signing contract) till the handover, Jeff and his staff exceeded our we expectation with their progress communication and follow- up.We were fully aware of every step of the build and it greatly reduced any potential anxiety through the project.Jeff and his staff are experienced, knowledgeable and have good work ethic. We appreciate their practical advice to ensure the build was of good quality, aesthetically pleasing and within our budget at the same time.After we were handed over our beautiful townhouses, Jeff and his staff are great at following up with us to ensure we are happy with everything.We have recommended MJS to our friends and we think all the staff at MJS have set a good example for people in their industry.

Jeff and his team rescued our build project, having been left high and dry from our previous builder. We would have no hesitation in recommending MJS Construction Group for your build project, and look forward to working with Jeff and his team on our next project. We valued Jeff's high communication and project management skills and the team’s attention to detail and quality. MJS took away all our concerns during the build and has followed up post hand over to ensure all is well. Jeff and his team at MJS are total professionals with a strong client focus that ensured our project was enjoyable, exciting and delivered ahead of time. We strongly recommend MJS to look after your project. Thank you to all the staff and team at MJS Constructions; we could not imagine where we would be without you.

I wanted to say a big thanks to the team at MJS Construction. I've built with Jeff before and it's refreshing to work with a builder that is truely a professional and cares about the end product he produces. The end result was a well finished product beyond my expectations. It's the little things that made a difference like the advice on selections and refinements to plans during the build phase that resulted in a great finish.You often hear about people who have poor experiences with builders, but I can truely say that the team go above and beyond to ensure that you feel like you're being listen to along the journey. So even on the odd occasion that something do go wrong onsite, the team made sure that the situation was rectified without question. At the end of the day, I had a great experience with on budget and on time delivery. I have no hesitation in recommending them and that's quite rare in this industry in believe.

Jeff, Josh and the team have been absolutely wonderful! We had a knock down rebuild project to build two houses on the one block of land for my partner & I and the in-laws. The MJS team have been extremely helpful the entire way of our development journey and really paitent with us, espcially with the in-laws when they had lots of questions. They explained things to us when we were unsure and they definitely had our best interest in mind by providing us with helpful suggestions when we were being money concious. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team, they've delivered amazing houses that exceed our expectations and worked really hard and diligently to complete our homes ready for move in before the Christmas to avoid the long period of rest over the holidays.

05:03 03 Oct 19
As home development investors, we've researched and tendered to several builders and were immediately impressed with MJS as they instilled with us the confidence we needed to commit to our projects. Jeff is thorough and prompt with explanations of the entire building process and any quires we have.Jeff is hardworking, transparent and honest with an exceptional eye for detail and quality. A vision that translates into the end product.The post hand-over support has been beyond exceptional and I cannot praise this enough with any slight teething issue immediately resolved.Jeff continues to be our primary builder and we look forward in expanding our portfolio with him.Based on these experiences we highly recommend MJS.

We highly recommend anyone who is looking to build to give MJS Construction Group a call. We are onto our third project with them and I have to say the building process is very easy with regular updates on the build. Attention to detail is second to none as is the management of the entire project. Communication skills are impeccable and we are always made to feel like we can completely trust them to stay on top of the trades. We really appreciate the staff’s cooperation and dedication towards quality, workmanship and helpful hints and recommendation along the way. If you want quality, price and customer satisfaction, then MJS Construction Group will deliver at the highest level. Definitely 5 star service and piece of mind.

We had a relatively small extension project on a property with very restricted access. Many other builders didn't even turn up to quote. After a call, Jeff was on site within two days and advised us how to change our plans to make the project easier and less expensive, without compromising design or function. Jeff and his team were a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble and the speed of work had our neighbours in awe. Jeff considered the impact on the neighbours and worked with them to accommodate their needs. Attention to detail was exceptional and even at the end, Jeff was suggesting light placements or small changes which can only be assessed at that stage. While only a small project, Jeff treated us like his only client - super responsive and delivered on time and on budget. We highly recommend Jeff!
