Taria Blignaut

I’ve proudly amassed a large portfolio of sales achievements in my time working in the sales industry since 2007. My experience has instilled a wealth of knowledge that allows me to make your building process as seamless and efficient as possible. I believe close collaboration makes all the difference. When you work with me, I’ll sit down with you and get to know your lifestyle, family story and budget inside out, then go about interpreting your vision and converting it into reality.  At the end of the day, honesty, trust and good communication are the foundations to building strong relationships. I look forward to offering you first class service when it comes to designing and building your dream home.

Kim Gartrell

Just like the Webb & Brown-Neaves homes I help bring to life, I’m in it for the long haul. It’s been a long and rewarding journey for over 27 years, and I’ve never loved turning up to work each day more than I do right now. A lot has changed for me personally over that time (I’m now a proud pop to two beautiful grandchildren, Alfie and Sage, with another one on the way). Yet what’s never wavered is my passion for helping build happy lives. I’d love the opportunity to sit down with you and chat about your design and building vision.

Robert Gibellini

You learn a lot in a career that spans over 2 decades in planning and customer focused construction services. And I love nothing more than sharing this experience with you in my role as a Building & Design Consultant at Webb & Brown-Neaves. Every day brings the opportunity to forge new relationships, with my single focus to help you translate your dream home vision into a refined reality. As a father of six beautiful children (four girls, two boys), grandfather to three and an outdoor enthusiast, I have a fervour for life that shapes me as someone who’s genuinely excited about celebrating your life story.  As a planning professional, I’m here to help you plan, create and deliver a masterpiece built around your unique needs, style and individuality. I look forward to working with you and bringing your vision to life.

Ben Lawrance

Since graduating from Curtin University I have developed over 3 decades of sales and consulting experience, with a recently completed Advanced Diploma of Management further enhancing my skillset. Now in my eighteenth year as a Building and Design Consultant at Webb & Brown-Neaves, I’ve played a hand in turning hundreds of dreams into realities. With much of my time also spent honing my process and management abilities, I know how to deliver the pinnacle of building experiences – smooth, stress-free and memorable for all the right reasons.  Not everyone can say they love their job, but I can – it perfectly wraps building’s creative and financial processes together. And helping clients get to their dream home destination is my daily morning motivation.

Andrew McLoughlin

My journey to the upper echelon of customer service started decades ago in the Australian casino industry. Here I honed my skills for 20 years gaining experience on everything from the gaming tables through to the project management of the construction of the Star City complex in Sydney.  After relocating back to Perth, I owned and operated a coffee shop for several years before selling and moving onto the new homes industry. This was a major turning point in my life - I feel that I have found my true calling. Today I’m proud to achieve some of the highest customer ratings possible thanks to my technical expertise and easy-to-work-with disposition. I look forward to guiding you on your journey.

Tim Varga

Looking back, I knew that the building industry was for me right back when I was young, experiencing the excitement of renovation first-hand on our family home.  Fast-forward to 1998 and I had just completed my Diploma of Builders Registration, kick-starting over 2 decades in the construction industry. I’ve loved every minute of it, soaking up vast experience working in roles from prestart-client liaison to quantity scheduling and building supervising, as well as running my own construction company.  Since 2013 I have enjoyed the privilege of guiding countless customers in making the exciting (yet at times daunting) decision to build their dream home. Rest assured that with my Registered Builder qualification and contagious enthusiasm for building, I’ll help ease any anxieties and let you savour what is poised to be one of life’s rare and rewarding journeys.

Gaynor Armstrong

I bring to Webb & Brown-Neaves over 24 years’ experience in the building industry working on countless homes across WA’s South West and the Perth metropolitan area. My endurance in the industry has culminated in a rich understanding of the building process and a contagious passion that I share with each of my valued clients.  I just love the creative side of homes, from innovative product designs to the evolving use of textures and attention-grabbing materials within a home. Let me guide you through your dream home journey and make it a smooth, exciting and enjoyable experience.

Rod Druce

I've had 30 fantastic years in the building industry and I’ve loved every minute of it. Over this time I’ve seen the evolution of new trends in materials, design and décor. What I see today is exciting – never before have new homes been more enjoyable to live and entertain in.  As a husband and father of two who loves cycling with my mates, I know we all lead different lives. I take great pride and enjoyment in taking the time to understand your needs, wants and dreams from the moment we meet. Together with the talented team at Webb & Brown-Neaves, I can bring your special new home to life before your eyes.
