Our measure of success is simple: sharing a glass of champagne with clients at handover. So, far we have had 100% success rate. That's a lot of homes and a lot of bubbles! Take a look at what our clients are saying about their personal experiences.
Shortly after arriving in Perth, 14 years ago, I cut out an article from the local newspaper about a house in Cottesloe renovated by Dean Humphrey. I was struck by the craftsmanship and attention to detail which often seemed lacking during the boom of 2006. I resolved that if we were ever in the position to pursue an architect build I would engage Humphrey Homes.
So ten years later, when thinking to build a timeless weatherboard plantation style home, Humphrey Homes remained the obvious choice.
After viewing a number of homes built by Humphrey Homes, all distinct in their own way and obviously built with quality workmanship, we decided to engage Dean and his team for the design and planning stage of our proposed home. this will involve an extensive renovation and extension of a mid-century house. we were immediately impressed with the teamwork between Dean and in-house architect Helen Marchesani. Their experience working together with Dean’s focus on proactive communication and detailed focus on future timelines, gives us confidence our exciting new project will be an efficient and enjoyable experience.”

Friends are surprised when we use ‘positive’ and ‘building’ in the same sentence. The truth is however, building with Dean was a very positive experience. There were no surprises or cost blowouts. Nothing was lost in translation. Humphrey Homes understood the initial feel and vision from the outset and managed it really well from right through to the end. We definitely got what we wanted.
Cam and Tania McMurtrie, Cottesloe
We cannot thank Dean and his team enough. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience building with Humphrey Homes, and we would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is considering building.
The house is full of beautiful and practical design features that we love, from the rammed concrete wall with seamlessly inset tall windows to the stunning columns bisecting the stairwell over two levels. The quality of the finishes is excellent - extra features like the polished plaster walls and the striking patterned tiles lining the kitchen island bench bring a neutral colour palette to life. Fine details like shadow-line ceilings and quality cabinetry add finesse.
The design process was exceptional, their in-house architect listened and understood exactly what I wanted to achieve and the final design exceeded my expectations. The end result is a home that is classy, practical, and functional and a pleasure to live in. I still don’t quite believe that this wonderful home is mine.
From initial design brief and consultations the advantages of working with Humphrey Homes were apparent. All aspects of the design and build being considered together ensured there were no surprises along the way, leading to a seamless design and construction process.
The quality of the workmanship and attention to detail rivals the best I have ever seen. You don't see craftsmanship like this very often.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to you and the Humphrey Homes team for your patience and guidance through two projects, a renovation of our family home followed by the design of an amazing new bespoke home in Cottesloe. The renovation process from initial planning through demolition, building and completion ran efficiently and effectively and we were impressed with your customer focused approach. Following completing of the renovation, the choice of Humphrey Homes as our architect and builder for our new home on a block we had purchased was obvious. We had plenty of ideas and images which we had collected over a period...
The integrated approach that Humphrey Homes offered worked really well for us. Having Helen as the in house architect working together with Dean, an experienced builder who knew where it made sense to push the envelope on design, helped us get to an optimal design outcome inside the price parameters we were comfortable with. The depth of the team, and the quality of the trades that Dean could call on, meant we felt well supported through the process, which went as we were advised and expected. We are thrilled with the result.
David Gray & Kim Reddrop, Nedlands
Thank you and your team for the wonderful job that you did for us. You have worked with us to create a great home that is truly more than a simple building, but also a reflection of our family and how we live. It is a great joy to us and sharing it with friends... Your team has done a wonderful job for us in delivering the house. We greatly appreciate everyone's efforts; Kerri's thoughtful design improvements and care, Neville, Dean and Dave's delivery and craftsmanship and Luke's horticulture ... to deliver so much to a client who sometimes would have seemed to not be paying attention is a great tribute to all.
The efficiency, level of detailing and value for money by having our architecture and building all done by Humphrey Homes has been outstanding.
P & L Kralert, Floreat
Amazing use of space - the house flows elegantly between all levels and areas.
Judge's comment, HIA Perth Housing Awards
Thanks so much for all your hard work in preparation of our home. It’s our pleasure to recommend Humphrey Homes to people! We selected Humphrey Homes to manage the design and execution of our home based on a number of factors. Of course, these included the standard of the build and the value for money we would achieve but of particular importance to us was a need to have confidence that we could rely on one specific person (being Dean Humphrey) to be accountable to us throughout the process and execute the job to our expectations.

Thank you for bringing such a great team of craftsmen together to design and build ‘my’ dream house. It’s been so much fun.
S&P Barblett, Peppermint Grove
Visually appealing home both inside and out. This is a timeless home that will look amazing for many years to come.
Judge's comment, HIA Perth Housing Awards
We’re glad we worked with Dean Humphrey. We hadn’t built before and he made the process easier for someone who knew nothing about building. He was great.
T Hunter, Swanbourne
Dean was professional, knowledgeable and considerate in consultation with us.
D&H Chipper, Mosman Park
People looking for a home in this category cannot go past the quality and tradesmanship evident in this home.
Judge's comment HIA Perth Housing Awards
We were delighted with every aspect of our building process. Dean had some fantastic advice during the design and planning stages, which helped us achieve the end result we wanted on time and on budget. Humphrey Homes are a very professional company, but very easy to work with. I only wish we had the chance to enjoy the house for a bit longer before we moved away! Thanks Dean, Suz!
S Bertrand, Cottesloe
We have used them on a number of projects over the years and are confident to return because of their high-quality work and service. Their work is well supervised and we trust them to maintain high standards. Their approach has always been upfront, honest and fair. The end product, in the case of our current residence, is excellent, both from a design and building perspective and has been backed up with excellent service (both pre and post completion). We feel like it has been a team effort between ourselves and all at Humphrey Homes. We are more than happy to recommend Humphrey Homes and to use them again in the future.
W&K Cormack, Swanbourne
The trust we placed in Dean and his team proved time and again to be justified. Always approachable, Humphrey Homes helped us achieve our goal with relatively hassle-free build during the height of the building boom. Not only does their award-winning work speak for itself, so do other builders in the industry. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
K & C Thomson
The Humphrey Homes planning and design team made it easy for us to readily evaluate our options. We were able to plan with, and speak directly to the builder, unlike the large building companies where contact is with the sales consultant. Variations requested during the building process were handled with ease and with a minimum of fuss. We are extremely happy with our new home. We feel like we are living in a resort and don’t want to wake up from the dream!
K Eastwood, Dalkeith
The process of moving from initial planning and discussion through contracts, demolition, building and completion ran seamlessly and efficiently. We felt well informed, assisted where necessary for important decisions and most of all understood and responded to where concerns or alternatives were raised.
R & L Poga, Peppermint Grove
Job completed to our entire satisfaction and worthy of all the awards it has won.
G Gallop, Claremont
