Multi-award winning Brian Burke Homes is Perth’s best builder of luxury homes. As a custom builder, Brian Burke Homes is not defined by a particular style. Instead it is renowned for flawless workmanship and enduring quality. In the 26 years that the Master Builders Association Best Home of the Year award has existed, Brian Burke Homes has taken out the gong an incredible 12 times, 6 of those times in the past 11 years.
Owned and managed by third-generation builder Michael Burke, it’s fair to say the pursuit of excellence is a family trait. Michael’s grandfather started building luxury new homes in 1952. Brian Burke Homes commenced operations in 1982 and soon became the benchmark for luxury homes in WA. In 1996, Michael took the reins and has continued to build on the company’s outstanding reputation, personally overseeing every home that bears his family name.
“It’s a pretty basic philosophy – we just want to build a better home every time. That means always improving and innovating with every home we undertake. Our clients are first & foremost in our business, we design & build their homes for their lives & their budget. It’s why we believe you should choose your builder before you choose your design,” explained Mr Burke.
This personalised approach has also been applied with resounding success to Refined Edge – the builder’s mid-level market brand, which produces homes in the $600,000 to $1.5m range. Recognising that there had been a shift in the market after the GFC, with fewer people willing to build homes in the multi-millions, Michael decided to test the waters in the mid-level price range.
“We’ve found that we’ve hit a really sweet spot in the market. We’re still producing the same high end quality and attention to detail while using simpler designs and specifications, which keeps the price down and means our build times are much faster than more expensive homes. The price point is much more attractive to the market and when they learn that it’s the same standard of construction and luxury as a Brian Burke Home, that usually seals the deal,” said Michael.
