At Select Homes, we are committed to providing you with a stress-free and enjoyable house-building experience.

Select Homes is not part of a franchise. Our family-owned business offers flexibility and genuinely cares about the needs of our customers. We are personally invested in each home we build, and we spend time learning about you and what you need. Then, we get to work, building to the highest possible quality at an exceptional fixed price – no surprises!
We are a small team which means nothing gets lost in translation. With us, you consult with a builder from the start, and you enjoy a seamless experience that we’ve perfected over 20+ years. Plus, we have our own in-house architectural designer with decades of experience and knowledge in designing and building homes.

12 Reasons To Choose Select Homes
Select Homes was started by Warren and Marie Gaylor in 1999, and has grown over time to become one of Waikato’s longest-established family-owned residential building companies.
Warren is a qualified builder and architectural designer with over 35 years experience and Marie has a finance background. From when we opened our first showhome on Te Rapa Road in 1999 to now, we have built a reputation for excellence in both design and construction.
Our homes are carefully crafted to meet the unique needs of each customer, and our team of qualified builders is passionate about delivering the best possible experience from start to finish. A new home is a significant investment, so choose a proven company that has stood the test of time.
When you work with Select Homes, you are working with the original owners of the company- not a franchisee who may be inexperienced in the industry.
This means we can offer more flexibility. It also means you deal directly with a qualified builder who has built over 1000 homes. We put our considerable experience and knowledge to work for you. Having built more than 1000 homes over the past two decades, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.
A key difference between Select Homes and many other building companies is that our team is made up of qualified builders. This means that instead of dealing with salespeople who more often than not lack fundamental building knowledge, at Select Homes you will always be discussing your new home with qualified builders who can offer excellent advice that is backed by many years of experience.
We use our considerable knowledge of the building industry to advise you from the start what is and isn’t within your budget. Imagine putting together a wish list and coming up with a design for your new home, only to receive a quote that’s way above your budget. So there are no surprises, we point you in the right direction and explain the different options right from the start.
When you’re building a new home, you want to be sure that it’s going to stand the test of time. When you choose to work with Select Homes you don’t have to worry about this as we are registered Master Builders and therefore, we offer the 10-year Master Build Guarantee.
This guarantee is independent of us, which means that you can be confident in the quality of our work. Not everyone can become a Master Builder – it requires a proven track record of success and high standards of quality. So when you choose Select Homes, you can rest assured that your new home will be built to the highest possible quality.
We are proud to have built homes for over 1000 satisfied customers, many of whom have become good friends of ours and we have often gone on to build their second and third homes.
We’ve maintained an excellent reputation across the Waikato because we build bespoke homes of exceptional quality – every time. Plus, we’re constantly striving to improve our quality and service to make sure you have the best possible home building experience with us.
Building your dream home doesn’t have to be complicated or full of hidden fees. When you partner with us, we make the process easy by giving you a free quote that is all-inclusive and a fixed-price contract. This way, you can be sure that the contract price won’t change if prices increase during your build.
This is easily the most exciting part of the process – the design plans! With our free in-house design service, you can tailor a house plan to fit your specific needs. During our first meeting, one of our experienced team members will listen to your ideas.
On-site drafting allows us to modify house plans quickly to suit your needs. This way, we can create the right design for you, your budget, and your site. A fully bespoke plan can also be prepared in-house, and the costs deducted once you build with us.
Select Homes is excited to offer a FREE site assessment as one of the first steps on the road to getting your dream home built. We will use our extensive knowledge and expertise to assess your site and figure out the best plan that matches you and your site perfectly.
In order to maximise your site’s potential, we take into account factors such as sunlight, privacy, and noise levels. So contact us today to schedule your FREE site assessment and let us get started on designing and building your dream home.
The quality of a build depends on the team of contractors who work on it. Several of our contractors have been working with us since our very first home. Their loyalty to us demonstrates their respect for the way we work.
Many of our contractors and their families have built homes with Select Homes because they know first-hand our quality and value. We are committed to providing our sub-trades with the support they need to do their jobs well and efficiently.
You can rest easy knowing that everyone involved in building your home is dedicated and skilled.
We only use the highest quality materials and the best subcontractors available. We know that cutting corners now will only lead to headaches down the road, so we never take shortcuts when it comes to building your home.
Trust us to give you the home of your dreams – a home that will last a lifetime.
Having your own project manager is one of the many benefits you’ll enjoy when you choose to work with Select Homes.
Your project manager will be available to meet with you on-site and help with anything you need. With years of experience in the industry, they will make sure your project runs smoothly and that you are happy with the final result.
We will also take care of anything you feel needs attention during the first 12 months of working with Select Homes, within reason obviously!
We understand that little things can be a bother, so feel free to make a list and let our maintenance team handle it.
