What Our Clients Say


Letter Testimonial

Dear Ron and Jay

Graham and I can’t begin to thank you enough for all that you have done to make the building of our house as stress free as possible.

When we started this journey 12 months ago on the other side of the country, it was a very daunting prospect. Not only was this emotional as I had grown up there but we were making such a huge commitment to building this house and really had no idea what to do. We had not built before and had no idea how the process would go. Dean reassured us that we had made the right choice in using you as our builders and he was certainly right. Not only have you guided us through the whole process, made suggestions when we had no idea about what to do, and made this one of the best experiences we have ever had.

Again, thank you for all your hard work, putting us at ease, building us an amazing home and most of all being the kind, honest, decent people that we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

We will certainly recommend Devrite Constructions to anyone that we know that will be thinking about building in the future. Wishing you, Ron and your team all the very best and long may you continue to build these magnificent homes

Best Wishes and very kind regards

We first made contact with Devrite Homes of Distinction after reading an article in the New Homes supplement to the West Australian newspaper. We asked if we could view some of their work and were most impressed by the quality of the three homes visited. What was more important to us was the excellent relationship that we could see between Ron and Jay Mangano and their clients.

We started the design process with many ideas and a brief to achieve an environmentally sustainable house which would cater for our needs as we age. Ron and Jay together with Dean Bell their designer, worked tirelessly and patiently with us to develop a plan to satisfy our wishes and to use our block of land to advantage. They provided unlimited information about the choices of materials and construction options. Realistic pricing was discussed with us at an early stage. This gave us complete confidence to enter into a contract.

From the very first stage of construction the supervision was way beyond that which we could have expected. It was as if it were Ron and Jay’s own home. We were advised of each step in the building process and were welcomed on site at any time. Ideas regarding possible changes were warmly welcomed and discussed to achieve the best outcome. We greatly appreciated this process as it avoided the need to make all decisions before commencement. Ron and Jay were always available to answer phone or email queries.

The quality of workmanship by the team of skilled tradespeople could not be faulted. Their work surpassed all our expectations. Knowing that these people had a long history of working with Devrite was reassuring and they were all so pleasant and helpful to us. Ron and Jay’s aim to provide a home that is virtually maintenance free has been achieved. The house is so comfortable to live in and has required no heating in the recent winter. The many, many compliments we receive about the house and the way in which it was built are testament to the fine work of Devrite. The minor faults with products used in the house were dealt with promptly and efficiently.

It was the small acts of kindness which really made such an impression. For instance a letter of introduction was sent to our near neighbours just before we moved in to our new house. On one occasion Ron and Jay set up a takeaway dinner in our living room to be, so that we could see the newly installed lights at night time.

Since hand over Ron and Jay have stayed involved with the development of the property by personally assisting with all aspects of the reticulation and landscaping. We were so grateful to them for spending the whole day helping us to move into our new home.

We are now enjoying living in an exceptionally beautiful home and have countless happy memories of a great building experience.

Hi Jay and Ron

After calling in at the office yesterday I could not help but reflect once again on how blessed we are to have you building our home. Your care and attention to detail is far greater than we could have ever hoped for and your willingness to patiently help us through each decision so so much appreciated.

Thank you Ron for getting the house locked up. An exciting stage to reach. Cannot wait to see the progress which will be possible now we won’t have to spend half our time running to tile and flooring stores. Thank you also to Mark for all his friendly help. It is always a pleasure to call at the office.

Looking forward to hearing the reaction of the folk on seeing their new home at Litchfield Street. They must have been thrilled. I can’t imagine what that day will be like for us when its all finished.

Many thanks to you both.

Hello Ron and Jay

I have just opened the computer to send you a message and found all your emails and information. You are both amazing!

Thanks so much for coming up yesterday and being so generous with your time. We really enjoy and appreciate being able to talk about all these things with you and to get your advice. I cannot believe how different our “ building journey” is to the experience of others we know and hear about. I thank God for you both and the way in which we came to know you.

Sincere thanks. Kindest regards.

Ben and Lilly Lun
Prior to signing with Devrite, we met with several builders, but something just didn’t feel right with them. We immediately felt very comfortable discussing our build with Jay and Ron at our very first meeting. Unlike some of the other builders we had met, Ron and Jay came across as very genuine and down to earth people, which was a very good sign to us. We were invited to view some houses that Devrite had already handed over, and were already occupied by their owners. It was no surprise to us that the builds were of a very high standard and that Devrite took great pride in their work, as Ron’s attention to detail and passion were already very evident to us…

It is sometimes the small and unexpected that can make such an enjoyable journey The building journey for Karen and I has been wonderful with Jay and Ron overseeing the daily responsibilities of building our home. Communication between Jay and Ron was daily, with updates and forward planning discussions. Jay certainly went above and beyond to give us her undivided attention in
detail ensuring that all components of the build were effectively covered

Karen Fraurud
Ron was available 24/7 by phone or email and we could not have received better service. Nothing was too much trouble and both Ron and Jay went to extreme lengths to make sure we were happy and understood all the procedures along the way. Our home is completed to a very high standard of construction with outstanding attention to detail. Ron has a “hands on” approach which with his technical knowledge and practical abilities made the whole process a positive and enjoyable journey with lots of wine, coffee and coke zero along the way.

Lindsay and Jenny McBride, Salter Point
Ron and Jay were extremely patient and provided invaluable advice and support during the protracted negotiations for Council approval. Once construction commenced, they were on site and available constantly, involving us in decision-making every step of the way. Throughout the entire process Ron and Jay both gave support and advice over and above the call of duty, providing extra expert advice on all matters, even those unrelated to the build. Ron even assisted us with supervising various works that were not a part of the building contract.

Alan & Gaye Hindes, Swanbourne
Devrite have built us a house to an exceptional standard of quality and finish, with you both having taken a personal pride in ensuring this continued from start to finish. This same attention to detail was also reflected in the trade’s people you chose to work on our house and they were as equally approachable. The first thing our friends and family have commented on when visiting us for the first time is the quality of workmanship and attention to detail..

Dawn and Steve, Mindarie
We have been nurtured from start to completion by yourselves. You have allowed us to be totally involved and engaged with you all the way. Your 25 or so onsite weekend meetings were invaluable to us all. Your interior designers on site meetings have also ensured the most appropriate of texture and colour selections and the added benefit of being able to discuss options with tradespersons on site has also been extremely important to us. I do not think there is a tradesperson I have not met throughout the building journey.

Brendan Kelly, Vic Park
Your attention to detail and the passion with which you built my home was exquisite, fastidious and in my experience, without comparison. I felt truly engaged with the build and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was saved from the horror stories that plagued my friends and this was undoubtedly due to the quality of the trades persons, Ron’s unrelenting and very particular supervision and the commitment by Jay and the team to foster a personal relationship with me.
