Anthony Fiteni: one of the leading home builders
Anthony Fiteni is the founder of Madison Homes Qld and has over 25 years of experience in the industry. During his time as a home builder, Anthony has seen what the industry can offer and sought to improve it. He has completed over 350 homes to date and is renowned for his leading edge home designs and unrivalled service ethic. When he is not overseeing the construction of Brisbane’s most acclaimed homes, Anthony enjoys boating and spending time with his family outdoors.
Many of Anthony’s home building projects have gained momentum in recent years and houses constructed by his custom design home building business Antech Constructions have been taking the industry by storm. In 2016 alone Anthony has received two HIA awards, including the prestigious HIA Brisbane Housing Awards Custom Built Home in the $1 million – $2 million category and outdoor projects. The home that received this award has been featured in several publications and was viewed over 100,000 times on social media. These awards complement the previous achievements of Antech Constructions between 2013 and 2015, which include 2 HIA Brisbane Housing Awards in the $300,000 – $500,000 category and finalist status in six different HIA categories. Such broad recognition is a testament to Anthony’s dedication and proficiency when it comes to home building projects.
Anthony has worked in the home building industry since the age of 15, when he commenced his Carpentry Apprenticeship. Having completed this trade at just 19 years of age, Anthony began working for himself as a Subcontractor and hired an Apprentice shortly after. During this period, Anthony gained a number of very valuable insights into Industry practices and practical skills. These skills have since developed to meet the dynamic needs of the industry and Anthony has applied them to over 350 homes throughout the course of his career.
For Anthony, his earliest career highlight is the completion of his trade at the young age of 19. This was followed by his career-defining highlight of starting his own Business, which he did at just 24 years of age. Of course, the business in question gave rise to Antech Constructions as it is today, and Anthony views the development of his showroom and commercial offices as a further highlight of his time in the industry. However, it is hard to overlook what is perhaps one of Anthony’s proudest moments: gaining considerable recognition from the industry in the form of multiple HIA Awards.
What motivates Anthony to build the best new homes Brisbane has to offer. Above all else, Anthony is motivated by his love for what he does. Working closely with Clients, from beginning to end, and seeing their joy as their dream home becomes a reality is a source of great satisfaction for Anthony.
Making people happy and experiencing their excitement when handed the keys to their brand new home is a unique feeling and one that has always motivated Anthony to build some of Brisbane’s best homes. As a Home Builder, Anthony gets to make people’s dreams into a reality and there are few occupations that offer such an opportunity. In addition, Anthony welcomes the opportunity to provide Industry-leading service to all of Madison Homes Qld’s clients. In Anthony’s ideal world, all Builders would be truthful, upfront and transparent – something that Madison Homes Qld strive for constantly.
It was a lack of fundamental integrity within the industry that led Anthony to found Madison Homes Qld and in doing so, he is working towards a better home building industry for all. Madison Homes Qld is founded on the principles of Quality, Service and Honesty, with the client remaining at the forefront of Anthony’s priorities at all times. This uncompromising stance on maintaining great Customer Service is based on Anthony’s frustration at seeing marketing deception, deliberate under quoting and unfair price mark-ups throughout the industry. To combat this, Anthony established Madison Homes Qld with Quality, Service and Honesty underpinning every home building project.
