Answers to typical questions our client's ask us

POPULAR QUESTIONS

We build our costs into the quotes you receive from our shortlisted contractors and builders. We have worked with them over many years and continually refer them work, which in turn they continue to provide competitive quotes and savings which we pass on to our clients.

We do all the legwork to shortlist, check availability, relay your project, work through the details and negotiate costs. We also help define your requirements, guide you through the process, share our experience and monitor the project to completion.

Over the years we have worked with hundreds of contractors and builders. Over time we have narrowed down to around two dozen that we have consistently experienced high quality workmanship and materials, and successfully completed projects on time and budget.

Absolutely. After the initial shortlisting and introduction, we encourage our clients to work directly with the contractors or builders, as they will ultimately be the ones you will have the ongoing relationship with. All our contractors and builders will be happy to provide referrals of previous happy customers.

We shortlist contractors and builders based on your requirements, one of which is your estimated start date. With many trades on our books we can almost always find a suitable contractor to commence on or soon after you are ready to start.

There are many ways to find contractors or builders these days. Doing a web search, via social media, online service directories or old fashioned word of mouth referrals.

The process can be hit and miss, time consuming to review licenses, check qualifications and experience, find suitable availability and to negotiate rates. It can be even harder if you have limited experience with construction projects, and not sure what questions to ask or what to look out for.

Let us find the right contractors and builders for your project at great rates.

A valid question that we are not always asked, but understand that it can be a thought in the back of ones mind. Put simply, our business growth is dependant on word of mouth and successfully delivering value. The more we find the right builders for your project at great rates, the more growth we will experience. Not to add it feels good to see happy clients, it's why we started the business.

General Questions

Can you provide examples of previous work

Request a Call and we'll reach back out with details of our previous work and case studies. In the meantime please see a few of our testimonials on our homepage.

What involvement does a broker have during the process?

As much or little as you would like. Some clients are happy with the shortlist and negotiations, after which they deal directly with the contractor. Other clients like us to be involved during the process and help sign-off the project. There is no additional charge for this service.

Regardless we are continually in touch with the contractors or builders to ensure there's no roadblocks or issues.

Is there a warranty on projects?

Yes, any work is covered by warranty provided by the relevant contractor or builder. If there are ever any issues or disputes between different contractors we can help work them through for all parties.

How can I check licensing and credentials for a contractor?

We only work with fully licensed and certified contractors. We regularly review licenses, check for current validity and monitor compliance for any public warnings & insurance claims. We also ensure all contractors have valid compensation cover for residential building work carried out.

We can provide you our checks, or you can do this yourself as most of the information is available in the public domain.

Are your affiliated with any of your shortlist?

Definately not. We are in no way affiliated with any of our shortlisted contractors or builders. They are all independant businesses who get work from their own channels and may also work with other brokers. We favour the ones that have consistent quality, specialise in your project and have competitive rates, we work for you.

What kind of projects can you help with?

Our contractors can work on all types of renovations from bathrooms, kitchens, laundry and much more. Our builders can work on all types of constructions including second storey extensions, custom and new home builds.

Where is your office located?

The majority of our role as brokers is meeting with clients, visiting sites and meeting with contractors and builders, leaving little time in a dedicated office. This also helps us reduce costs and overheads which are ultimately passed on to you.

We are always happy to come to you, visit on site or meet via phone or web conference, and available when you need.

How long does the process take?

It depends on a few factors such as your needs, budget and time frame and at what stage in the project you come to see us. If you already have detailed plans and simply need us to shortlist and negotiate contractors and builders, we can typically have some options within a few business days, and ready to commence in a 1-2 weeks time.

Is there a minimum cost for a project?

We can offer brokerage for projects as small as $1k to $10k, however most projects we broker for are over $50k+. The real value for using a broker comes for larger or slightly complex projects where we can help find the right contractors and builders at great rates.
