About Townsville Builders Grady Homes





A desire to be a “Builder of Choice”…

When John Grady started building homes way back in 1956, he wanted to be the builder of choice.

Our vision, just like when John started, is to serve our clients in a friendly, enthusiastic, caring, professional way, while ensuring we deliver a high quality product. This vision is shared by every member of the Grady team, who take on individual responsibility in ensuring each client enjoys their experience with Grady Homes, right through the process of choosing… building… and moving into their new Grady Home.

Today, more than 60 years later John and his family can proudly boast that they have become Townsville’s No. 1 “Builder of Choice”. A fact first shown in the 2009/2010 annual report on the Building Services Authority website (now QBCC), and a reputation maintained ever since.

A few simple words, hundreds of delighted customers

John Grady and his family have always been quick to adopt modern construction materials and technology to provide the best possible value for money in their homes. However something that hasn’t changed are John Grady’s business principles. Over the years these principles have been refined and still form the core of how Grady Homes conducts its business, and the building blocks for our solid reputation for fine quality and delighted customers.

We are only as good as the company we keep

That is why we are so selective with our tradesmen, our employees, our suppliers, our designers, land developers, finance providers and so on. All of these people contribute to the quality of the homes and the experience we provide our customers.

Happy workers, happy clients.

We make sure we look after our tradesmen, our employees and our suppliers so they are as keen to do a great job for our clients as we are. John Grady always said, “Treat ’em right, pay ’em on time, and they will always produce their best work”. Sure helps to deliver a quality product on time, every time.

Traditional values… Care, Honour, Trust and Reliability

Call us old school if you like, but if you place your trust in us to build your home, we will honour that trust.

  • It’s the reason we are so careful about making sure you know exactly what is in the contract;
  • It’s the reason we keep you informed throughout the process;
  • It’s the reason we carefully schedule every job to finish on time;
  • It’s the reason we spend so much time and money developing our systems and processes to make sure things go smoothly for you and for us;
  • It’s the reason we have been in business for so many years, and
  • It’s the reason so many of our customers not only refer family and friends to us, but build with us again.

Sure, call us old school, but why not see how we can help you with a brand new home for yourself, or for an investment home that will help you build a solid future.

Our promises, your guarantee.

We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk. The fact is that it is much easier to make promises than to keep them. Builders would “like” to keep their customers happy but good intentions alone are not enough. You have to back up those good intentions (and promises/guarantees), with some “serious intent” and careful management.

Many good tradesmen, decide they want to become a builder. Unfortunately, managing a “growing” building company has got nothing to do with being a good tradesman, and disaster is the common result. And a guarantee is worth nothing if the company has gone broke; in fact, if you choose the wrong company, there is no guarantee that they will even “finish” building your home.

Most people find comfort in the fact that Grady Homes has been around for over 60 years. It is easy to see how the Grady Homes Guarantees are more “valid” than a guarantee from a new builder.

Our guarantees exist to ensure you enjoy your building experience and your Grady home long after the build is complete.


The Grady Homes Builder Guarantees include:

  • 5 Month Build Guarantee
  • Fixed Price Contract
  • Lifetime Structural Warranty
  • 12 Month Defect Warranty
