True North Residents Reveal Why They Chose A Satterley Community To Call Home

True North, Greenvale customer testimonial Mel and Alex.
Young couple, Mel and Alex, tell us what made them choose where they live and why they’ve come to love so much about their Satterley community.

Mel and Alex moved into True North in the northern suburb of Greenvale at the beginning of 2020. They were married at the end of 2019 and, after returning from their honeymoon, moved straight into their first home.

Thinking back to the decision-making that came well before they built, the say they bought land with many factors in mind, but family and convenience came first.

True North’s Greenvale neighbourhood was unbuilt when the couple were considering their first home options, so they had to place a good degree of faith in Satterley’s vision for the community before buying.

This ability to create a concept for a residential community, express it to potential residents and then follow through on their plans is something Satterley has prided itself on for more than 40 years.  The company was established by Nigel Satterley in Western Australia in 1980 and, after great success in his home state, he branched out into Victoria.

Over the past decade, around 8,000 families, have moved into Satterley communities across Melbourne. And for Mel and Alex, two of the very first residents to move into True North’s Greenvale neighbourhood, their faith has paid off.

They have enjoyed how close they are to local facilities, but have been just as impressed by the quality of True North as a whole and the civic warmth of the community they’ve become a part of.

Alex says Mel’s last point, the fact that True North seemed like such a good place to bring up children, was perhaps the main reason why he made the community his first choice.
