About Us.

It takes a lot of loving to make a house a home.

At JRZ Homes, we put our all into our work and continue to set a high standard as a specialist new home builder in Queensland.

This takes passion, experience, and 50 full-time experts putting brains and muscle into the conception of your dream home. We understand that building a house is an intimate experience and potentially a lifetime goal that you want to put in the hands of the best. That’s why — from the first draft to the last quality control check before handover – we focus on building homes and relationships that are equally reliable, with every one of our past projects a portfolio of our success.

Because homes and reputations — neither are built out of thin air.

Jesse Zielke.
Director & Builder.

JRZ Homes’ strong name was built upon Jesse’s trust. He’s been in the construction industry for over 15 years and his commitment has led JRZ Homes to win multiple awards for 8 years in a row. How? He managed to conflate hard work with true confidence in his team, creating a work environment which promotes staff retention in this constantly moving industry.

His leadership skills have led him to be the director of numerous other companies in the region including Liveable Homes Australia which develops and manages a Specialist Disability Accommodation, JMAC Investments as private development group and Cabinet Connections a leading kitchen and joinery company which he grew tenfold in a very short period of time.

Jesse was recently awarded a QLD 40 under 40’s Top Entrepreneur award for his success in the above companies.

Although Jesse is a busy man, he stays passionate about providing the youth with opportunities in the construction industry. Hence his active participation in construction industry reforms, especially in Regional QLD.

Jesse’s passion for building homes would not be complete without the most precious pillars of his own: his family. That’s why his wife Mel and kids Tommy and Lili are his biggest success.

Mel Zielke.
