Why Everyone Wants a Highlife Home


Highlife Homes are designed to be aesthetically beautiful and timeless, speaking to what’s popular at the time, while reflecting classic taste that will remain impressive for years to come.

Attention to Detail

True quality comes down to the details.  Every Highlife Home has the details in mind from the early design stage, right through to the finishing touch ups before handover.  It’s this level of detail that distinguishes a Highlife Home.

High Quality Workmanship

Highlife Homes takes pride in hand selecting trades and suppliers for their workmanship, attention to detail and also their post-build service.  Materials are chosen for their longevity and premium quality, ensuring the best possible home experience for owners.

Care & Love

Every Highlife Home is designed and built as though it were our own.  Thought and care goes in to how the home flows, functions and looks in every room.  If something doesn’t seem quite right we take the time to change it to ensure every completed home is deserving of its new owner.

Praise for Highlife Homes

“Highlife Homes are an incredibly professional and reliable building team. Not only do they have the highest finishes and quality control they are great people to work with which is important because let’s be honest building can be stressful. I’m excited to use Highlife Homes again on my next project in the very near future. If you love quality and have a keen eye for detail Highlife Homes are for you.”
Michelle Cassidy

Property Developer

“We are delighted that we appointed James and the team at Highlife Homes to build our home. They worked with us each step of the way and seemed to take as much pleasure in building our home as we did along the way. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quality product and proactive advice during the build which in our experience is a rare thing in the building industry.”
Craig and Kellie Brennan


“When you go to build, you get a bit nervous because it’s such a big financial investment. We went through a number of different architects and builders. Trying to find someone that had that same vision was the biggest challenge for us. This isn’t a cookie cutter home, this is a one-of-a-kind house that is uniquely mine, and going through it every fortnight and seeing the progress has enabled us to really be part of it.

James and Elyse are the most relaxed vibrant people, and they really put my mind at ease all the way through. It made the journey much much easier. It’s really emotional because it is so beautiful. The Highlife family have worked really hard and now I have a beautiful home.”

Emma & Gary Watson


“We have just moved in to our beautiful new home and would like to use this review as an opportunity to thank James and his entire team at Highlife for the experience. The moment we met James and looked and some of the homes built by his company we had confidence our future and our money was in good hands.

Building in Kingscliff and communicating from Sydney was made so easy by the professionalism and expertese of this team nothing is a problem. Excellent quality of work and exceptional customer service are minimum standards.

James and team it has been our pleasure to have had this experience with you we would use your company if we were to ever build again and recommend to others if they want a pleasant, stress free building experience.”

Joyce & Michael McBride


“I can’t praise the team at Highlife Homes enough. From the service, to the design, to the build, everything was done above and beyond expectations. The builders in particular were the friendliest and hardest-working I’ve met – my site presented unique challenges, a really steep block, but it was all done incredibly fast and still maintained a high level of attention to detail. Highlife Homes really stands out among the abundance of builders available on the Gold Coast, and I strongly recommend them to anyone looking to build.”
Jamie & Nada Logan


“Our experience with James and his team was wonderful! As our first venture into owning and building a house, from the start of designing our home to the finish and move in, the process was simple, easy, flexible and stress free! Everything was taken care of for us and we love our new home. The quality and finish is great and we will be enjoying our home for years to come. We would definitely go with Highlife Homes again and recommend them to others looking to build their new home.”
Melody Walker


“What a building experience! In the past 25 years I have built 2 family homes, 1 holiday home, 6 investment properties and 6 medium sized commercial properties and never had such a pleasant experience as working with James and his team from Highlife Homes. Highlife Homes went out of their way to make sure that we would have the best possible end product. It has been refreshing working with James, a person of integrity and a wealth of creativity and knowledge. We are already working on our next building project and I know Highlife Homes will be on the top of my list.”

Homeowners, Property Investors and Developers

Its been a pleasure having James George and his team of professionals at Highlife Homes construct our two residences. The structural integrity and stunning finish are the way Highlife Homes write their signature across their creation for all to see.

Throughout the project it was evident to me that Highlife Homes have built their company reputation on values of integrity, working toward ‘win-win’ outcomes and 100% accountability.

Issues which needed to be addressed were handled professionally and expeditiously. Open communication, respect and a courteous response were characteristic of our relationship.

I am happy to recommend Highlife Homes to anyone considering a builder for their project.

“We recently built an investment property with James George & Highlife Homes. I cannot recommend them highly enough. James and his team are very knowledgeable, professional and efficient, and the quality of work is exceptional. Nothing is a problem and any query is dealt with promptly. We are in the process of entering into a new contract with James and Highlife Homes to build another investment property for us in the New Year.”
Jenny Stedman

Property Investor

“We have had twelve properties over time including three built new. We have no hesitation in stating that our new home by Highlife Homes is the best experience we have had when building a house.

Highlife Homes are a very professional organisation, their customer service is first class and their workmanship is of the highest standard. They return phone calls and emails immediately, their staff and contractors are all friendly and easy to get along with. This was certainly a drama free build and completed in a short, scheduled time frame.

Our new home was the first completed in stage two of the estate and over the past two months we have watched the new homes being built around us. That is when you really notice the difference between Highlife Homes and the other builders in the estate.

When Highlife Homes start a job, it flows on trade after trade, very rarely do you see days when no one is working on their site. All other builders in the estate do a bit then disappear for a few days or weeks. All Highlife Homes internal materials are covered to protect them from the elements and the site secured.

Most of all we love our new home. The quality inclusions, the extras that came with it and the fixed price. James George is a switched on man that has surrounded himself with a quality team and if your thinking of getting a new home built it would be very hard to make a better choice than Highlife Homes.

Thank You Highlife Homes. You Have Made us very happy.”

Noelene O'Neill & Les Lowe


“Entrusting a builder to build the house of your dreams can be a nerve wracking experience – not with Highlife Homes. From design to completion we felt our money was in safe hands – and it was.

The whole process was professional, structured and caring along with really good communication skills from James through to Elyse and Emma back in the office.

The customer care didn’t end with the final payment either – quite to the contrary. Their care and focus continued in dealing with those inevitable ‘snagging’ jobs which never seemed to pose a problem for them.This puts them ‘head and shoulders’ above the vast majority of builders on the Gold Coast. We have no hesitation in recommending Highlife Homes to any prospective customer

Thanks to you all from Tony, Sophie and family.”

Tony Whiteley


“I built a home with Highlife Homes a few years back. What I loved about them is that you can tell they really care about you and the work they are doing. They are always there to answer questions and help wherever they can, even long after the build is complete. I would certainly recommend them.”
