2020 HIA QLD Award Testimonials

May 20, 2020

The HIA Awards provide home builders and designers the opportunity to receive recognition, and showcase their work to the broader industry. Not only is this a great way to promote your business, but also to spotlight your style of work to potential clients.

Don’t Just Take our Word for It

Comments from some of our HIA Award entrants, finalists and award winners

“We started entering into the HIA awards program about 6 years ago. Our experience from winning an award, even being presented a finalist for the first time, was the rapport you gain in the community and with potential clients. Not only is it a great night to catch up with friends and colleagues but it gives your company a huge market advantage compared to your competitors. We’ve had the opportunity to grow our company as the years go on and we believe the awards program has been a huge component to the success of that. The HIA are great to work with, their services are extremely helpful and they are only a phone call away to offer the support our company needs. We’ve always found the judges to be very experienced and all judging to be extremely fair, even if we haven’t taken home an award. The quality of the homes and builders that enter these awards every year, are of the highest standard and we’re always extremely proud to be part of it.” Redkem Constructions

 

“Being heavily involved in the HIA awards program for over a decade now, Heisig Constructions values decades of alignment with HIA and this year celebrate our 50th year as a leading custom builder in the residential housing market.

During this time, we have heavily used the Awards Program to test and measure our business, our product and our systems against our highly regarded peers. This has allowed us to then promote our then small to now medium professional family building business and its achievements in the greater housing market. It has no doubt helped us stand out to our discerning clientele and valued suppliers, who understand the recognition of hard work and award winning practices. We continue to improve on our performance with the support and recognition of our peers and the housing industry.”  Heisig Constructions

 

“Ausmar Homes have been consistent participants in the HIA Award program for the last 15 years and we are super proud to have won over 35 awards during this period. We find the whole process of choosing the homes and the appropriate category’s to enter and then following the process right through to the awards night gives our staff involved a great deal of pride and satisfaction. We also find that winning an award provides us with some valuable content for our marketing and is also a huge buzz for our client that owns the project. I feel that a HIA building award has become the pinnacle accolade in any construction company and that the public nowadays actually expects their builder to have won an award or two in the past.”  Ausmar Homes

 

“The recognition of winning an Award through the Housing Industry Association has been so incredibly rewarding with both personal and professional benefits. Not only is it acknowledgement of the years of hard work, vision and commitment to delivery of a quality product and service but creates wonderful opportunities to enhance our marketing tools, keep us motivated, give confidence to our clients and drives us to be the best we can be. Not only that, the HIA Awards Nights are truly highlights on our social calendar networking with other building professionals and adding a touch of glamour to our industry.”  Troy Martyn Building PL

 

“We have been a member of the HIA for over 10 years and have an array of our projects into the HIA Housing Awards. Over the years we have been fortunate to have taken out some notable awards. As the HIA Awards are judged by our peers in the building industry, we have found that winning awards has given us the added credibility when talking with prospective clients. It is very satisfying to know the work you do has been acknowledged by an established awards program. We will continue to enter the HIA Housing Awards as we see value in it for our business.”  Space Constructions

 

“We highly recommend the HIA Awards Program and the benefits it allows your business, as you really dig into the practices and performance of your ability in the greater housing environment. Since winning an HIA Kitchen & Bathroom Awards, our business has received wide praise and an increase in leads and opportunities. Winning awards such as these shows clients and calibre of work we produce and ensures them that they will receive a product of high workmanship and design. It has given us the opportunity to appear in editorials, not only showing finished work, but also promoting that we are in HIA award winning business. Its sets a standard that we are proud to maintain.”  Burgess Kitchens & Cabinet Makers

 

“Winning the Awards is an entry door to improving our brand awareness, promoting our business to new and old customers, with the added bonus that staff morale is uplifted, and contractors and subcontractors’ reputations are enhanced and expanded. The ongoing wealth of being a recipient of the Awards include prominence on the HIA website, utilisation of the HIA Award Winner Logo on our profile, publications in housing magazines with beautifully presented pictures and storyline, utilisation for our adverts, website and marketing materials, branding on our company vehicle, and display on our business cards.” Essentially Residential

 

"We are extremely proud to be the only Australian real estate agency to ever win a Housing Industry of Australia property styling award. In fact, we have now won these awards for the past 4 years running (2016-2019). The importance of the HIA and these awards to our business cannot be overstated. When we first pioneered our unique value-driven business model of all-inclusive Staging, Styling and Selling, we knew that it was going to be difficult to challenge the status quo of traditional ‘local agent’ real estate businesses. Receiving the recognition from the HIA, as one of the leading property styling firms in Brisbane, (even though we are a real estate firm) has been critical to our success. To that end, we are extremely grateful for the emphasis that the HIA has applied to the issue of home presentation in relation to property sales. We have been thoroughly impressed by the forward thinking attitude of the HIA and their strong support of the property styling industry. We are looking forward to supporting the HIA into the future, and of course, winning some more property styling awards!” Cape Cod Residential
