North Rodney

Ursula’s background in building started at age 17, with an internship at Fletcher Residential where she enjoyed 10 years as a draftsperson.

Fast forward several years, Ursula began her own interior design business & in the background developed several of her own building projects on the Northshore. She began her journey with Sentinel Homes in 2016, along with her husband Brent, where they set up a boutique office, helping their clients build fabulous homes. They hand selected an experienced team to work with them in the Warkworth and Matakana area, then, sadly Brent passed away suddenly in 2018.

Ursulas experience & connections in the industry have put her in an excellent position the lead the team. Ursula's team in Warkworth pride themselves on listening to their clients needs and budget, and understanding the importance of great communication - "Communication is everything in this business. Beginning at our client all the way through to our team on site. It’s not a five minute service we are offering. We are together for quite some time and it’s a relationship that often lasts a lifetime."

client testimonials!

All the way through, communication was excellent and the Sentinel Homes crew were like our mates! The house was built on time and bang on budget – we couldn’t have asked for better.

Kevin & Angie Mounsey

We made a few changes, and it just was not a problem. We didn’t have to compromise.

Megan & Glen Ellis

All the pricing was really transparent and the build came in right on budget, we’d definitely build with them again. We absolutely love this house.

Wendy & Dale Williams

Sentinel were 100% transparent about the process. Their communication was excellent, they have a really great app that keeps you up-to-date.

Sentinel Homes don’t cut any corners – they take care of your home for the long term.

We wanted someone we could trust and Hayden from Sentinel Homes, Wellington was very open and transparent right from the start.

From the minute we walked into the Sentinel Homes Waikato show home it was love at first sight.

Kevin & Marcia Hinton

The Sentinel Homes team were all great, each offering a different set of skills and providing ideas about different ways of doing things.
