Learn about our multi-award winning company
Stephen’s father, Alfred Kleinert started our business in 1968 and built several Display Homes, uniquely designed and featuring ideas ahead of the time. In 1972 Alfred Kleinert was awarded the Bronze Medal in the Victorian Architecture Awards for the “Fletcher House – Brighton”.
In 1988 Stephen joined the business, bringing with him sales, financial and management experience. Stephen spent the early years working on building sites and this practical experience has proven very valuable in assisting clients to custom design their building projects intelligently, thoughtfully and logically from the initial concept design to handover.
To this day, Stephen still coordinates and oversees the design and construction to completion. His tailored design advice and construction processes continually evolve and improve, giving clients peace of mind that he is striving for perfection on their project. Stephen’s philosophy is to complete every building project, no matter how large or small, as if it were being built for his own family to live in.
Kleinert Homes have been independently awarded “Highly Recommended” certificates for excellence in customer service and satisfaction scoring a 94% average over 11 years and 70% of the homes we have built are a direct result of repeat business or referrals from satisfied clients, who continue to refer their family and friends to us.
In 1995, Kleinert Homes was awarded the HIA top homes award for Best Display Home under $180,000.00 for their custom designed home, “The Sterling”.
Now in 2013, a “Kleinert Home” won the Building Design Association Award for “New Home Construction $300-$500K” and our clients are thrilled. The same home is a Finalist in the HIA Victoria awards for Custom Built Homes category, with the winner to be announced in November.
