About Southern Vale Homes

"At Southern Vale Homes we pride ourselves on being quality home builders"

For over 30 years, Southern Vale Homes (SVH) have worked hard to design a range of homes that showcase value for their clients. Backed by innovative ideas and thoughtful features, SVH wants people to have something they can call their own.

Owned by John Fisher, a Wodonga local of 40 years, SVH is one of the region’s most established home builders, founded in 1994 by Graham Searle.

With a build area expanding from Albury/Wodonga, Wangaratta, Yarrawonga, Shepparton, Echuca, Bendigo and surrounding areas, the company has seen continued growth and won multiple building awards.

John’s passion for building began when he had the opportunity to work with others in building his family home. Once finishing school, John completed a trade and continued his studies into a Graduate Diploma at Ballarat University and took on a role as a National Construction Manager.

In 2014, John and his wife Blaise built their third family home and chose Southern Vale Homes. John made it his mission to become an employee at SVH so he was able to provide his clients the same satisfaction he received when building his home.

“We wanted to provide the experience we had to others.”

Beginning as the Construction Manager, then quickly becoming the General Manager, the succession into ownership and becoming a registered builder has been a very proud and passionate journey for John.

Bringing the new brand, purpose and mission together to take SVH into its next chapter, John and Blaise credit their team, who all contribute to the company’s future.

“For us, it’s about creating connections – between us and the brand. We create these connections with the people who work for us, and with our customers.”

The Southern Vale Homes team are passionate about the homes they build. For them, building a home is not so much about the added inclusions, it’s about the liveability.

“Your house is more than just bricks and mortar, it’s about building a home that will enrich your life.”
