Did you ever watch ‘The Castle’?

Oct 22, 2019 | News

There’s a very good chance you did.

It is, after all, regarded by most as one of the greatest Australian movies ever made.

It’s about how blue-collar battler Darryl Kerrigan fights to remain in his beloved family home by the airport – a fight which eventually takes him all the way to the High Court of Australia.

As well as being both funny and heartwarming, it also spawned some truly memorable quotes which, some twenty years since the film’s release, remain part of the Australian vernacular.

“This is going straight to the pool room.”

“Tell ‘em they’re dreamin’!”

“It’s the vibe of it, It’s the constitution. It’s Mabo.”

There was also one other, equally memorable, line that has particular resonance for the people at Ventura Home Group.

“It’s not just a house, it’s a home.”

You see, this encapsulates exactly what brothers Phil and Mark Di Masi had in mind when, together with a staff of six family members, they founded Ventura Homes back in 1993.

Sure, they wanted to (and did) build the highest quality houses they could. Equally, though, they wanted to build something that was a whole lot more than merely bricks and mortar.

They wanted to build something special. A place of sanctuary. A place of security. A place of warmth and love. A place where lifelong memories are created and shared.

A place, quite simply, that families were proud to call ‘home’.

Based on strong family values of honesty, integrity and respect, this is what the Group calls its ‘customer-centric’ culture.

This is not, of course, just some fancy marketing jargon.

On the contrary, it has been the driving force of everyone at Ventura ever since the first slab was poured.

It’s about designing high quality homes of outstanding value, where the standard of the build is matched only by the standard of the service.

Today, over a quarter of a century later, this overriding ethos remains exactly the same – with the ultimate happiness and satisfaction of customers always to the fore.

That’s not to say some things haven’t changed since those early days. They well and truly have. Now the group brand, Ventura Home Group is the fastest-growing building company in Western Australia and includes, quite literally, something for everyone who is considering building, developing or investing in a home.

From first home buyers and house and land packages, to cutting edge warehouses and lock-and-leave apartments, right through to luxurious two storey designs, the Group offers a home to suit every lifestyle and budget. As well as building it, they’ll help you finance it too.

And no matter which brand you choose, or which style of home you decide upon, you can be assured of a 100% commitment to build the home of your dreams.

Who knows, just like Darryl Kerrigan, you could even have your very own pool room!
