The Whakatane Office is made up of a bunch of people (and the office dog, Meg) with experience and passion for building – secretly we all love Lego.
John Klein, Director and Contracts Manager, born and bred in the USA – don’t hold it against him – has been involved in the building industry for over 20 years. John, his wife and two boys moved to Whakatane in 2004.
Gray Pearson, our Sales Rep, comes from a background in Real Estate and has lots of tools to help you with your home or garage project. He and his wife moved to Whakatane after leaving the Auckland rat race.
Jo Burke, Office Manager (because miracle worker is not actually a job title) is a born and bred Whakatane local. Her role is to keep the behind the scenes running. Jo has a husband and three kids to keep her busy outside of work.
The rest of the Whakatane team is made up of a crew of builders who have been with Versatile for many years.
Our aim is to give you the best experience whether its building your garage or your home. Please give us a call and chat with any one of the team to help you with your design.

Seamless and clear
"We are writing to let you know how happy we are with our new Versatile Home. It has been a very seamless and clear process building our home with you. Thank you for the very professional service we received and the advice and support through every step of the build. Thank you for the gift basket and we look forward to working with you at some stage in the future."
Kelly and Michael Marumaru
"We had constructed an Oxford Home with addition of a family room adjacent to the dining area. The builders were excellent to work with and the workmanship was top notch. Product was what we wanted for a farm workers house, i.e. low maintenance and open plan. The whole Whakatane Versatile Team was a pleasure to work with and very helpful, especially with marrying the two plans together and then reversing it as well as advice on colour scheme."
Bill and June Gaskill
The team in Whakatane are amazing
"The team in Whakatane are amazing. Nothing to improve on."
"Versatile Whakatane were easy to work with. I was always able to contact the manager and even after the build was completed and we had moved into the house, he was still open to me ringing him if we have had any concerns. Great service."
Absolutely love our new home!
"We chose Versatile because of the plan and we were very happy with the way the team worked with us to make it our own. The Rangitata is a plan we really like. We are extremely pleased with our new home, absolutely love it."
Toni and Darrel Owen
Over the moon!
"It was a great experience and I can’t think of improvements needing to be made. We wouldn’t change a thing, we are over the moon with our home and the quality of finishes. The products in our home are high quality and the overall finish is extremely high quality especially compared with other homes that were finished in our area at the same time by different building companies."
Helpful and friendly staff
"The communication was excellent and the people I dealt with were helpful and friendly."
Highly recommend Versatile Whakatane
"I loved dealing with the team at Versatile Whakatane. They were very good at answering my many questions and I never felt like I couldn't contact them. It was a difficult time getting a build done during the different Covid levels, but so worth it in the end. I highly recommend using Versatile."
