About Geelong Homes

 

Our History

Building homes since 1995

Locally owned family business, Geelong Homes was established in 1995 at a time when there was a genuine need for beautifully built homes at an affordable price. An offshoot of Hamlan, Geelong Homes was developed as an affordable housing alternative to the high-end coastal homes that Hamlan builds—but with the same quality and attention to detail. Geelong Homes emerged proudly carrying the Geelong name and promising to give the Geelong market a new trustworthy and affordable builder.

Many things have changed in the years that have passed. We’ve become Geelong’s largest local builder—rebranding and branching out from Hamlan with our head office on LaTrobe Terrace, which sits proudly in the heart of Geelong overlooking The Cats’ home ground. We also now service the greater Geelong region and beyond, building homes across the Bellarine Peninsula, the Surf Coast, Colac and Ballarat. But despite this growth, our core values have remained the same. We continue to strive towards using the best local trades and local suppliers. And we are still committed to building the highest quality home at the most affordable price.

We’ve remained a mainstay in Geelong’s building market, because we are Geelong, local people who live and breathe the lifestyle that our great region has to offer. You’ll see us at your local cafe, a footy match or the local schoolyard. We only build homes that we’d love to live in ourselves—a quality home that is affordable, so we can continue to enjoy our great lifestyle.

We’re a builder for people at all stages of life—first home buyers, upsizers, downsizers and investors. Building a home with us, you’ll experience expert advice and craftsmanship, upfront costs, quality standard inclusions and friendly service from a passionate local team.

Because at Geelong Homes we build every home like it’s our own.

Our Pledge for River’s Gift

For more than five years, Geelong Homes has pledged its support to River’s Gift in their efforts to fund world-leading scientific research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), provide safe sleep education and raise awareness of the syndrome.

Back in 2016, Geelong Homes built a charity home as part of this pledge and the sale of the charity home raised more than $130,000 for River’s Gift. This year, we’ve pledged to do it all again and we’ll be building another charity home with construction to start early next year. The proceeds from the home auction will be donated to River’s Gift to continue supporting world-leading SIDS research.
