Building a Community within a Community

What Goes Around, Comes Around

with Navigation Homes

The recent campaign to shop and buy local is nothing new to Navigation Homes co-owners Nathan Hall and Ryan Keegan. One of the things they are most proud of is the employment of local people in every facet of their business, from all the staff they employ in the office, through to the highly skilled and experienced contractors they use on site. Navigation Homes are proud to call their team local.

Navigation Homes was founded in the Franklin region in 2007 and today has 11 branches nationwide, building homes you’ll love to live in.

The Coronavirus has made people realise how important it is to support local people and their businesses. It is something that Navigation Homes has always placed an enormous importance on. “All the people we employ, directly or indirectly are locals, they live in Franklin and let’s face it, it’s an amazing area. Nathan and I are immensely proud of our team and know that they always give 120% to every customer.” enthuses Ryan.

“The lockdown experience made a lot of people give some serious thought to theirs and their families living situation. We have spoken to many people who are looking now to mix things up with their next move. Grandparents and other extended family members were alone in their homes, often with little support which has created a sizeable shift to people looking at intergenerational housing. This is where we can help, because we are flexible in our designs and while most people don’t want to ‘live on top of each other’ there are many different options when it comes to design and utilising space that will accommodate the needs of a large family group”, says Nathan.

Whether it’s one of our unique standard plans or a bespoke design tailored to suit your personal needs, Navigation Homes can ensure it is designed, built & finished to the highest standard, giving you peace of mind.

We understand that building your dream home can be stressful, but at Navigation Homes we have streamlined the process with innovative systems, keeping you constantly up to date through our ProNav App. This sends alerts directly to your phone on everyday progress of your build, leaving you time to spend on more enjoyable things, like choosing new furniture for your new home.

Both Nathan and Ryan are involved with the customer every step of the way. Nathan will meet with you and walk you through your wish list and Ryan takes over once the build is underway. Whether it’s finding a section, dealing with council consents or sorting finance, the team at Navigation Homes have got you covered. We can get you into your new home with as little as 5% deposit for owner occupied and 10% for investment builds.

We have numerous house and land packages available right throughout the region to suit your preferred location and more importantly your budget.

With multiple awards from the Master Builder House of the Year Awards and a 50 Year Structural Guarantee, building with Navigation Homes means you get the best of both worlds. The benefit of an organisation with strong national backing and the knowledge that by building with Navigation Homes you are supporting a local business that in turn supports local business.

“Visit our showhome and you be the judge!”


“Jen and myself would like to say thank you for the hard work that has been put into building our home. The photos received today really made our day. We are both super excited to live in our home and start our life together. Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort put into this build at this challenging time.”

— Kaylyn & Jen Naidoo

“Last year we wanted to build a new home in Pokeno and after looking at various builders decided to build with Navigation Homes. A truly wise choice, from the first meeting they made the whole process so easy. They offered advice, were friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with. Our home required some adaptations due to a medical condition, not a problem, all were complete as required and we moved into our new home in November 2019. When building you often wonder if it will meet your expectations, our home surpassed them, everything was finished to the highest standard, and we love our new home. Navigation Homes were simply the best and I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of building a new home.”

— Sharon and Paul Carlyle

“I’m overwhelmed by your talent and the care you have taken to turn our dreams into a reality. I don’t think I’ve ever dealt with people like Navigation. We can you see that you have a lot happening but there has not been one time that I felt you we were just one of the many homes you had to do. Kelly, Ryan and Nathan, keep doing what you do, I am so very deeply grateful and happy.”

— Maggie Bygate

“We understand that building a new home, your dream home can be daunting, but we are confident that the systems Navigation Homes have developed over time will make it a streamlined process”
