Nate comes from a family of builders and started building himself as soon as he left school. After completing his building apprenticeship and eventually project managing high end residential homes in Hamilton, he moved to Christchurch immediately following the earthquakes to assist with emergency repairs and the rebuild.
Following on from this Nate worked for himself as a labour-only carpenter and it was during this time that he was able to identify what worked well between different companies and bring it all together in launching Sentinel Homes in the Waikato.
Originally a Waikato girl, Del has recently returned from 20 years living and working in Scotland where she was an executive director and business manager. She’s delighted to be back in NZ and is enjoying the new challenge with Sentinel Homes. She has a background in quality management, health and safety and environmental management. As a systems and processes person, her business management skills complement the technical skills of the rest of the team.
Having built her own home a couple of times and with an interest in interior design, Del understands the customer experience and is passionate about helping clients into their dream homes and making the experience an enjoyable one.
We wanted someone we could trust and Hayden from Sentinel Homes, Wellington was very open and transparent right from the start.
Sentinel were 100% transparent about the process. Their communication was excellent, they have a really great app that keeps you up-to-date.
We always felt in control of the build, due to the open lines of communication.
We made a few changes, and it just was not a problem. We didn’t have to compromise.
Each morning when we woke up, we could go in to the Sentinel app and check the latest uploaded photos of the work on site
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.
The Sentinel Homes team were all great, each offering a different set of skills and providing ideas about different ways of doing things.
From the minute we walked into the Sentinel Homes Waikato show home it was love at first sight.
Sentinel Homes don’t cut any corners – they take care of your home for the long term.
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.
The Sentinel app makes building your own home so easy. I’ve already shown it to many of my friends and family.
Let’s get together for a free, no-pressure meeting with one of our team, at your place or ours.
We can't wait to hear your ideas!
