When the Du Toit family embarked on their journey to buy their first home, they knew that they wanted to find a home that would cater for their young family with design features, tick off all the items on their wish lists and be located in an area that was designed with community living in mind.
The choice to build in Paerata Rise was an easy one, from the moment they met up with Nathan and the team from Navigation Homes.
“We searched many different areas and settled on Paerata Rise because it was close to where we worked and offered us good choice in home design with the multiple builders on site. We saw them all, but as soon as walked through the Navigation Homes show home and met with Nathan, we were sold” laughs Lerize.
“Right from the start, they helped us to understand the whole process, listened to what we wanted, explained how we could achieve things on our wish list, and then once we were under way with the build they kept us up to date with progress and ironed out any bumps in a very professional manner.”
Lerize, husband and daughter Ava are the 2nd family to move into Paerata Rise and Navigation Homes Counties Managing Director Nathan Hall couldn’t be happier for them.
“We are thrilled to be able to build their home; we love to be able to see the dreams of our clients come to fruition and Paerata Rise is a great development to be part of.”
Founded in 2007 right here in Franklin by Aaron and Michelle Hall, the Navigation Homes franchise has grown to cover the whole country. Now the wheel has come full circle with Aaron's son Nathan and his business partner Ryan Keegan joining Aaron in Navigation Homes Counties.
Between them, they have had close to 60 years’ experience in the Building Industry, but they understand that while they are very familiar with the potential pitfalls in the industry, many of their clients are building for the first time and go to great lengths to make sure they totally at ease with the process.

It was that constant communication and confidence in how they handled the whole process that impressed Lerize and JP throughout their whole build.
“Once the build started, we were able to keep tabs on how things were going with the Navigation Homes ProNav App Smartphone tool, it was so easy to use and kept us up to date at all times, allowing us to ask questions to anyone working on our house and in real time!”
The result, a family friendly house modern house with ensuite, spacious bedrooms and a design that takes into account every bit of section space. Combine that with the Navigation Homes Guarantee of a whopping 50 years on their structural work, in addition to the Master Build 10 year Warranty and Lerize, JP and Ava couldn’t be happier.
“People were always telling us how stressful building a new home could be, with Navigation Homes we found it to be just the opposite and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
