The first slab has been laid at Florence - meet the buyers!

First home buyers in Florence
Florence, Mandogalup is one of our newer estates, located approximately 30 minutes south of the Perth CBD.


After being launched last year, the very first home slab has now been laid!

The lot was purchased by excited first home buyers Darren and Mika, with their deal done through Jason Mayne of Celebration Homes.

We had a chat with Darren about their experience!

Have you lived in the Mandogalup area before? 

No this will be the first time living in the area.

What influenced your decision to buy and build now? What made the timing right for you?

We were looking at buying a property for about a year until COVID hit and impacted the timing. When everything started to become normal again we had both just finished university and started working so it all fell into place perfectly.

How did you first find out about Florence?

We were looking at land in the area and just happened by it, we are extremely glad we did! We coincidently visited on the day Florence had opened.

What attracted you to Florence?

We had a look at the plan and thought it was excellent. We also love the look of the area; the projection of Florence will be an amazing place to raise a family – with a school to be built soon and some amazing parks and nature.

What were the top 3 attributes you were looking for when choosing your block of land?

Land size, location and the layout.

How long did you spend looking for your perfect block?

Longer than we’d like to admit, we made sure to take our time and wait until the block felt right. We had a few options we were looking at, but once we visited Florence a few times, we knew our block was the one.

Any advice for others about to embark on this buying journey?

Take your time and try to enjoy it!

We wish Darren and Mika the very best for the rest of their home-building journey, and are happy to welcome them to the Florence, Mandogalup and Satterley communities!
