Where it all began
In 1996, our CEO Rob Harder was operating a kitchen cabinetry business, and he had just met a disappointed new homeowner.
Their issue was simple: after touring gorgeous display villages, it turned out the contract price didn’t include all the things they’d seen. The features they really wanted in their new home were extras.
It was far from the first time Rob had heard that complaint.
Inspired by the opportunity, Rob teamed up with friend and builder Andrew Clement, and the pair began to offer full turnkey homes that real Aussies could afford. The idea proved popular, so Rob invited his brother James and his young family to leave Perth and help with the business.
One coffee later and the decision was made
The Global Financial Crisis was a trying time for our industry, but it did gives us a moment to rethink our product and the way we brought it to market.
At the time, brothers and experienced developers Neil and Don Wormwell were on the hunt for a new building partner to help them increase their successful sales model. A cup of coffee to discuss a partnership turned into an all-night meeting where the decision to merge was cemented, giving birth to Privium Group as you know it today.
Backed by experts, Impact Homes is the original home & investment solution
From a simple idea to a business that has grown year on year for over two decades, Impact Homes doesn’t just put our customers first, we put them at the very centre of what we do.
What began as a novel concept has gone on to shape the way our industry works, and even now we consider ourselves a business that exists solely for our customers. With hundreds of employees, partners and suppliers across Eastern Australia, we surround ourselves with industry experts who all ask the same question, “What can we do to help Aussies grow their wealth, plan for their futures and reach their potential?”
What our customers need isn’t always simple, and it’s not static. For us, the only true constants are our commitments to innovation, our people and to the success of every customer, supplier and partner we work with.
