The Hadar Story

Hadar Homes was established in 1995 when Managing Director, Rick Leeworthy, witnessed a dispute between a client and their builder on a site in Yarrawonga. As a plumbing contractor, Rick realised that there was a vast gap between what the client expected and what the builder was offering.

So Rick Leeworthy created Hadar Homes – a building company founded on offering clients the honest and reliable service they deserve. For 23 years, Hadar Homes has worked tirelessly in creating a genuine building experience by putting our clients first. With over 1,000 homes built in the Albury Wodonga, Yarrawonga and Wangaratta regions, Hadar Homes clients experience the benefits of a locally owned building company with an exceptional reputation for quality.

At Hadar Homes, our job is to help turn your dream home into a reality. That’s why Hadar is the most awarded local builder.
