With nearly 20 years in the building industry, I firstly studied and became a building estimator with McCracken Homes to which I specialized in residential housing and special projects. My previous employment before entering the building industry was in sales as a representative for Coca Cola, my sales background at Coca Cola led to the opportunity of entering sales from estimating in 2010 which I have not looked back and enjoy meeting new people and relish the challenge in a tough and competitive industry.

I started with Rossdale Homes back in March 2013, in that time I have excelled in all areas making the Rossdale ‘Team of the Year’ four years straight and also in 2017/18 receiving the prized company honor of the Rossdale Homes green jacket which is awarded to an individual in the company for recognition of excellence and leadership.

My main drive with every one of my clients are referrals, Adelaide is a small place and if you are not doing the right thing then word gets around pretty quick so I believe it’s of high importance to provide the enjoyment of building a house and keeping you informed throughout the process which is why more than half of my work is generated by word of mouth.

A quote that is my motto and work to is ‘If I’m not servicing and fulfilling my clients needs, then my competitor will’ … this has been part of my success.

I specialize in sub-divisions, knockdown rebuilds, split level and custom design homes. I realize that building a new home requires time and patience, let my background experience help you with councils, developer requirements and encumbrances as no project is too big or small.

Look forward to meeting for a chat soon.

What our customers say about us:

D McKay

Hi Leon

I have just finished building an investment property with Rossdale Homes. I met with Leon Margaritas initially when he was with another company and he has looked after me extremely well. He understood what I expected and how I wanted the project setup and I cannot thank him enough for his professionalism and integrity. His follow up calls to see how the project was going made the whole process more personal and very easy.

The building went ahead without any problems and I have been very impressed with the finish and competency of all the trades involved and the project was completed in the timeframe allowed. The office staff were also very efficient and made sure everything was covered from the contractual and selection side of things.

I would definitely recommend Rossdale homes to anyone looking to build their first home or any other property.

D Poulton

We have been working closely with Leon Margaritis from Rossdale Homes since June 2013. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has always been there for us if ever we needed help with any queries regarding the design process of our home or just basic questions that we were unsure off. He has helped us greatly in the design of our house and we couldn’t be more happier with the end product. As this was our first home we were very cautious about hidden costs etc in our contracts. Leon has done his utmost to advise us from the start about any costs that may pop up in our fixed price quote which has helped us a lot in organising our Finances etc. Overall we feel we are very fortunate to have met Leon and to have him as our builder and cannot wait to see what the final product looks like once its all finished.

Mike Semmler

Chairman and Board Members,

I write to you on behalf of my wife and myself, to commend the work which has been done for us by your company.

Our first building having gone into liquidation, we trusted our salesman, Leon Margaritis to do what he felt best for us. I have recently retired and have never owned, let alone built a home, before. We were not disappointed when Leon chose Rossdale as his new employer.

He listened to us, showed personal interest in us and our circumstances and your company dealt very generously with us. In Leon you have a man of integrity who relates well with people, now in your employ. He is a valuable asset. We have certainly trust him.

Building projects are complex to say the least and we want your board to know that our site manager, Matt Leonard, did not resile from the challenges our project presented to him. An outstanding manager, his good people skills, energy and honesty were on display. Very pleased.

Steph became our customer service manager, and is transitioning from the understandably “cannot do” finance department to the expected “can do” customer service role. She too has potential in her new role and should be encouraged.

It has been a good experience at Rossdale Homes and we would not hesitate to encourage others to consider your company when building.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Semmler (Rev Dr)


J Mburu & L Kamunya

Our experience dealing with Mr. Leon Margaritis has been very wonderful. He has been very helpful, professional and a source of great knowledge. For us been first time home buyers, Leon has made the whole ordeal painless and stress free. Leon takes time explaining each and every detail and is always available to answer our questions. He was very patient with us when choosing the house plan that suited us and we are grateful for the plan he came up with. We would not hesitate dealing with Leon again and definitely will recommend him and Rossdale Homes in general.

thanks

Trotta (Port Vincent)

I’d like to thank you Leon for your positive approach to our tricky building project. Nothing about our project has been standard since we had a sloping block of land, in a rural area and faced challenges for approvals for everything from septic system management to the orientation of the building on the land and a few little hiccups along the way. Leon is clearly a team player, listening to what we needed and then working with others to get the best outcome for us. He was always enthusiastic and keen to help, as well as being quick to respond to our calls and requests. His honest, helpful and knowledgeable approach really helped us on our way.

Trotta (Port Vincent)


Battersby (Semaphore)

My family and I were trying to build a house ... we have had many hiccups along the way and since moving to Rossdale and with Leon Margaritis, he has been helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and reliable and has been able to provide us with the answers we need to finally build our dream home . His ability to go that extra mile has been outstanding and appreciated.

H Corda (Plympton)

"With Leon Margaritis, I can assure you that we were well looked after. Our phone calls were always returned and emails replied. Last year, due to our very unique circumstances Leon went all out in trying to accomplish everything beginning from design, selections and up to contract preparation was complete in record time. Service was always with a smile and despite our numerous changes, Leon patiently carried everything that were asked too. Essentially, Communication was always flowing which is key.

In light of the above, would have no hesitation to award your Leon Margaritis the full 5 stars."

H Corda (Plympton)


Flores (West Lakes)

"My husband and I were very impressed with the service from Leon. He made us feel comfortable/reassured during the planning process by taking the time to explain things simply and thoroughly. He understood our needs as a young growing family and provided ideas on what he thought a perfect home for us would be. All our phone calls were either answered straight away or returned promptly."

Flores (West Lakes)


M McDermott (Sommerton Park)

Leon Margaritis, I just wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the work you have done with us since December in bringing together a concept plan we had in our heads for our new Home. We have built 4 homes since 1985 but this was the first we have done from a blank canvas.

Whilst there are always issues with such a project both Jenny and I found the manner in which you personally managed the process was the main reason for the project from concept to contract sign off running smoothly and successfully.

I want to thank you for the help and guidance along the way and your guidance working with us on the selection task.

I would most certainly have no hesitation in recommending the service offered by yourself and look forward eagerly to the construction phase.

Once again thanks for the generosity and Fantastic Service.

M McDermott (Sommerton Park)


Binks (Gawler)

Just finished building, I am really happy with my home, The service I was given was excellent by office staff and consultant Leon Margaritis.

I was happy with the speedy build time considering it was a large house and happy with the finished result (although some small changes are always needing to be picked up on and changed).

Binks (Gawler)


Semmler (Broadview)

Leon Margaritis has, beyond expectations, taken my wife and myself through the set back of a builder ceasing to trade, journeying with us to obtain a new contract with a reputable builder so that we can complete our home.

In that time of personal turmoil for himself he has kept in touch with us, understood our needs and has not overlooked the detail of our original plans.

He listens, he understands his industry and is accessible and has earned our highest respect.

I was personally impressed at his interest in us as people.

Semmler (Broadview)


M Polimeni

I wish to commend Leon Margaritis for going above and beyond his duties. He not only performed his job thoroughly and flawlessly, and I found him very punctual to return my phone calls to him with any concerns I had. He took on the task of correcting and rectifying previous errors from the pre-existing plans I had given him. He also liased and re-designed plans which I had for my existing residence for a carport which I needed to construct, which was a Council stipulation before I could go ahead with plans for my new dwelling. He saved me $10,000 on the carport construction and also added value to the existing dwelling by improving the access to the house and taking it away from the corner.

Leon took on a very difficult project in this situation and amended already approved plans to be to my greater satisfaction.

Regards

M Polimeni


C Keynes & J Morris

My mother and I are currently building two homes next door to each other with Rossdale homes.
We have dealt with Leon Margaritis right through the process, from the very early stages of thinkings and wonderings to signing contracts and moving to the construction stage. Throughout the entire process Leon has been very patient and extremely helpful.
My mother spoke to Leon on the phone even before we met him and his manner certainly encouraged her to have a look at the display homes at Northgate. We first met him at the Rossdale display homes where he was informative, not pushy and had all the information we needed at his finger tips. I think if he had approached us in a more high powered way rather than in the quiet but confident manner he did we might have been “put off” as neither of us had sold our homes or made any real decisions.
 Leon has always been available and accessible and extremely approachable. He has spent the time following up queries and then explaining things carefully to both of us to ensure we understand processes.
Leon has helped make the whole process pleasurable.

L & E Crompton

How would you describe your experience with Rossdale Homes?

Overall fantastic love the new house finished beautifully Leon deserves special mention would not have signed up if it wasn’t for him. We were 99% signed up with another builder. But they never returned calls, never replied to emails etc. Whilst waiting for their correspondence we dropped by Rossdale display home and met Leon. He did exactly what he said he was going to do. Every question we had he answered. When unsure he said I will find out and get back to you and he actually did. We had some quite specific requests and he wasn’t fussed at all. We soon realized Rossdale was for us and we would end up with a better home. It was definitely Leon’s cal relaxed manner, easy going nature that got us on board. Not an aggressive salesman just did his job really really well.

What do you particularly like about your new home?

The overall quality looked at many builders and Rossdale seemed the best quality at still affordable price.

Looking back over your experience of building and moving into your new home, how would you describe the process?

Straight forward, easier than expected. Far easier than friends who have built with other companies.


R Thiele

What things did you like most about the display home in our village?

Construction style and process and the Fixed Price guarantee.

What were the 3 best things about our Sales Consultant that assisted you?

Approachable, willing to make changes then more changes, then more changes.
Available to be contacted any time and very understanding.


M Polimeni

How would you describe your experience with Rossdale Homes?

My experience in general was very good Leon was exceptional. My Foreman was great as well.


Natasha

A big thank you to Leon Margaritis (sales consultant) and Michael White (site supervisor) for all their help and guidance, to all the Rossdale trades people that contributed in building my house, and to the office staff, Stephanie (customer service coordinator), Linda (accounts), Teresa (selections), that kept me informed throughout the build process.

Before deciding on Rossdale most of my weekends were spent going through different display homes with my mum (always good to have a 2nd opinion!) and we kept on going back to the Rossdale ones at least 3-4 times! Leon I found was knowledgeable about the build process, and that gave me the confidence to go ahead with Rossdale.

So, to anyone that’s looking to build a new house I can highly recommend Rossdale Homes, excellent workmanship and build quality, house was completed within time frames, prompt response by staff about any queries, and just really nice home designs to chose from.
