Vivid Home Builders Founders Tony Port & Emma Hamilton

One of the reasons we started Vivid Home Builders was to give you, our clients, the quality and service you deserve. We all deserve to be treated in the same way, with honesty and respect. And that extends to the home you want to create.

When it comes to custom home building, there are very few custom home specialists around. Which means that clients have limited choices from their builder. As a team, we want to bring an integrity-driven experience to you so our values translate into every interaction we have together. This is what makes your experience positive and successful.

Custom home design is a dream of a lifetime for many people. Our clients want this experience and since everyone has unique tastes, the design of your home should be one you can fall in love with and live in for years to come. It should be your home. One that you’re proud of because you have custom selected everything in it.

It’s our mission to bring this dream alive for you.

As a team, we have an extensive background in the building industry. Tony has been building homes from a young age and has more than 30 year’s experience building hundreds of house projects. From custom homes to building designs, Tony has seen it all. Emma has run a high profile real estate business and been in sales for many years.

In our current setting, Emma manages the day-to-day running of the business as well as assisting clients and sales staff with the selection process. Tony is hands-on throughout the building process.

At Vivid Home Builders we feel very lucky to have an amazing staff that reflect our ideals. From our tradesmen, sales team, site supervisors and office administration, we employ only highly trained, motivated people that have a focus on customer service so we deliver a high quality home that you deserve.

We are also very community based. Wherever possible, we use local tradesmen and suppliers so money goes back into our local economy. We are independently owned and operated, ensuring that you receive personal service from our team at all times.

Additionally, one of our favourite things is to involve ourselves in community projects including those that lead us overseas, such as the Koripita Project in Fiji. There we assisted in the construction of building local homes for families in poverty stricken areas, we supported Destiny Rescue and Free A Girl, Orange Sky and One Tree Planted to name only a few. Closer to home, we proudly support many organisations such as local sporting groups, aged care and Rally for a Cause.

A message from Vivid’s co-founder Tony Port

“I’m on a mission to make people happy and to serve you. I’m really passionate about what we do and how we do it. It’s deeply important to me that our customers know what they are getting. Value for money is important and to know exactly what you are getting for your money, without being misled is critical.
After all, if I buy a car (not that this happens often) I want all the wheels on it! I would be extremely pissed off if it came with two wheels missing, and then I was told I had to pay extra. Because I feel this way I will not do this to our clients, it’s wrong and it’s false advertising. It’s the same if I go to a nice restaurant, I expect good service with quality food, something I can enjoy and tell other people about.
So often companies promise everything and only do half of what’s promised and that is exactly the opposite of our core values. We want to do it right 100% of the time and work tirelessly to ensure that clients are happy, satisfied, and feel compelled to tell their friends about the work we do.
I hope you can now see how passionate I am about the homes we build and why we do it.”

Live with passion!
Anthony (Tony) Port, Director

A message from Vivid’s co-founder Emma Hamilton

“My favourite part of working with people to create their perfect home is the look on their faces when it all comes together at the end. How excited they are to show off what they have created and they can’t wait to immerse themselves in their new lifestyle.
I love working with our clients to create a plan and décor that reflects their personality and of course, functionality. It can be daunting for some people to create a home from scratch, while others come to us with a really clear idea of what they want. Either way, it is an exciting journey that I feel blessed to be part of and giving our clients all the support they need.
I think home design is in my DNA, I absolutely adore the creativity of the whole process from the first conversation to the handing over of the keys.”

about working with Vivid:

WOW... super job by super people. As friends and family visit, they too can’t believe the quality and the high standards on inclusions the house has. The handover was amazing personal and so unexpected. *These guys are the winning package *
Ricky and Kylie
Just a quick message to thank Vivid for my new home. It's perfect. Even better than I expected. I could not be happier. I am so glad that I went with Vivid. And I love the floor tiles that you helped me with. Thanks so much for the arrival gifts. A wonderful surprise. Please thank everyone involved. Thanks so much again.
What we liked the most was the ability to choose quality fittings and variations to the plan. It created a sense of being part of the customising process and ownership of our own choices. Co Construct was wonderful, we felt part of the whole process during construction. Vivid Homes displayed an understanding of our needs and were flexible, they had the perfect design layout for our home, so well thought out. So professional, the staff, owners and contractors. We would definitely build again with Vivid Homes.
Madelein and Marius
Vivid Home Builders, were very easy to deal with. The team are very helpful from Management to Construction and in between. Any requests for additions and amendments are sorted promptly, and the after sales service is very good. Any issues are fixed very promptly. We would recommend Vivid to anyone considering building a new home.
Bruce and Judy
Our build was very professionally managed by both Vivid’s design team and contractors alike, the customer support was above and beyond what would be expected and the workmanship and build quality was exceptional and of the highest quality. Our build was completed with extraordinary effort going into ensuring the build stayed to schedule. Building our first home, we were treated with complete respect throughout, made possible
John and Jaime
Having just moved into our beautiful new home we are both so happy that we decided to build with Vivid. Being first home buyers Tony and Emma guided us through the building process and helped remind us of small things that we may not have considered. The quality of finishes have been amazing throughout the house and our family and friends have been very impressed by what we have been able to build within our budget. Co-Construct is very user-friendly and we both enjoyed sitting down in the afternoon and making our selections over a bottle of wine. The personal touches that Emma put into the house on handover day were very special and put a smile on both our faces.
Courtney and James
We were looking for a builder that could offer us a personal service. We only called Vivid Homes, and we felt so comfortable with Tony that we didn't bother looking anywhere else. And we are glad that's what we did. The quality of the build is what impressed us. We were always kept informed, the service we received was personalised for us and we really always felt important. We love our new home!
Tony and Cherie
We were looking for the right builder to put an extension on our home. We couldn’t find one that we were happy with until we met Tony. He surprised us by taking the initiative to think outside the square and resolve some design issues that previous builders had not even considered. We loved his ease with problem solving and attention to detail. Tony asked us, “Is there something we could have done better?” – and honestly we could not think of a single thing! We love our new extension and would recommend Vivid Home Builders without hesitation.
Paula and John
We were looking for a builder that could offer us quality, commitment and of course service. Tony always got back to us straight away, nothing was too hard! Our new house is exactly what we wanted, and we are so happy!
Monica and Rob
We were presented a home at Handover of the Highest Standard I have ever seen and that’s because both Tony and Emma pride themselves on PERFECTION and PRESENTATION. As we lived in Brisbane the most amazing thing was our Friday updates that we awaited for including photo progress of our build. Nothing was too much for them both, to give to you. Also not like all the larger builders ALL the inclusions are all included in the cost of the building price, no hidden extras that they forget to tell you about. With HIGH quality products that you can choose from. “THE MOST AMAZING BUILDER I HAVE EVER HAD TO DEAL WITH.”
Rose and Woody
Our overall experience with Vivid Homes was a very positive one. Tony and Emma were always available which meant queries were responded to quickly and they were always available to discuss things at any time. Our lovely new home was delivered on time and is of a high quality. If you are looking to build then we would recommend giving Tony and Emma a call.
Ros and Paul
We built our first home with Vivid Home Builders, and now they are doing our second one. They really guided us the first time round as it was all so new. And this time has been even better as we have clearer ideas of what we want and their flexibility in customising our home has allowed us to build exactly what we have envisioned. Their online portal is amazing, we get to see our project from the start to finish, all online and it's really easy to use. They really make the process so easy and informative.
Tim and Chelsea
Right from the start Tony explained how he organizes the building process from the planning stage to the contract stage and then throughout the building stages. I was impressed with his methodical approach and attention to detail. When building, flexibility is the key factor and Tony assisted us all the way with choosing the best quality products for our home at a reasonable price. Vivid Home Builders use only the best tradesmen and suppliers and we have developed good friendships with his team. I think meeting Tony was one of the best things that happened to us and our building project. We are extremely satisfied with our home, built to 5 star quality by a 5 star builder.
Neil & Julie
We would like to thank you and your crew for a wonderful Veranda that you built us. You and your crew were very professional, courteous, helpful, prompt & very efficient in all aspects of the building of the Veranda. We were grateful that the work was delivered on time and did not exceed the amount that was quoted. The way that everything was done was above our expectations. We have no hesitation to recommend you, Tony and your crew for any work that you do and would definitely use Vivid Home Builders without any consideration to other builders in the future.
Frank & Noelene
Tony, this is a note to generally thank you for building our home in Toogoom Hervey Bay... Well more to the point how pleased we were with the finished product. After an extremely endless search for a builder we found Tony Port of Vivid Home Builders. We came across lots of yes’s from other builders, “we can do this all”, but the promises were fruitless. The building process was very smooth everything went to plan no time delays. We are so pleased with the way everything turned out it was just the way Tony promised us.
Allan & Susan
We absolutely love our new family home built by Vivid Home Builders. Tony and Emma were extremely easy to work with throughout all stages of the build. Tony presented a house design within the first five minutes of meeting that ticked all the boxes. We were able to create our family home with different spaces/zones and achieve our seemless indoor/outdoor living. The design also helped maximise the space of our corner block, which we required with two small children and enough room for the shed! Emma kept the build on track and we were in within the four months as promised. Once we were moved in there were a few minor glitches that needed to be fixed but they were rectified promptly and we couldn’t be happier with our new home! We would highly recommend Vivid Home Builders to anyone considering building.
Jen and Russ
Emma, Tony and Crew. A great big thank you for our beautiful home. Also a huge thank you for your patience, knowledge and advice along the way. The house is exactly what we wanted and we are extremely happy. Love to each and everyone of you.
Alan and Lynda
We looked at a few builders and Vivid Home Builders stood out to us. We felt really comfortable with them and loved the display home. Building our forever home was so easy with Vivid. Co Construct was easy to use and everything flowed so easily. We felt the efficiency and organisation was exceptional. Things flowed, no stress and our home was always on time. Our favourite thing about Co Construct was all the communication was in one place. Our home is amazing and we are going to love living here.There was nothing we would change and we will be recommeding Vivid Homes in the future.
Brian and Sharyn
We found the design process was really easy. We found Vivid Home Builders so easy to work with and were open to our ideas. Emma made sure we were always informed and we knew exactly what we were getting in our inclusions. The quality of finish of our home was exceptional. We are so happy to finally be in our beautiful new home.
Graham and Elaine
Thank you so much for the beautiful home you built for my son and his wife. I have too enjoyed the journey. To see my sons face and heartfelt emotion, upon the welcome gifts in their home, bought a tear to this old mum too. Thank you ever so much, and in any way I can promote your business, you can rely on me.
Marcy - Gympie
We feel like building this house has been the best house we have ever built and we are going to love living here. We had no issues during our construction and we were so happy with the communication from the office staff to the supervisor. The software was a great tool in keeping us informed and was so user friendly. We are just so happy and everything is fantastic, we are already recommending Vivid Home Builders to our friends and even strangers.
