Jesse Young

Sales Consultant

Jesse looks after sales for Balance. He spent over a decade working in federal politics (don’t hold that against him!), and is now hard at work helping our clients find just the right block of land and new house design.

He is the friendly face who will greet you at our display home in Woolgoolga, and he’s happy to meet you on your land to discuss the possibilities.

It’s almost impossible to find him without a cup of coffee in hand, and when he’s not at work, he’ll usually be at home wrestling with his four boys, volunteering in his church’s youth ministry, or watching the footy.

Can I really afford a custom home?

Unfortunately, the big builders have convinced new home buyers that the only way to afford a new home is to settle for one of their standard plans or pre-arranged house and land packages. But why settle for a home designed for someone else?

A home designed to meet your specific needs may be much more affordable than you realise! At Balance, our pricing is transparent and we’ll happily tailor our designs to meet your budget and the family’s needs.

You’ve got nothing to lose – visit our display home, or give us a call today on 1300 056 298 to arrange a free consultation.
