Renovate to Sell in St Heliers, Auckland

Todd and his family bought this St Heliers property to make it into a family home. The house was set in the picturesque suburb of St Heliers with sprawling 4 floors and high ceilings. Apart from that, the house had several problems which needed to be tackled before they could call it a home.

The house was dated, had no natural sunlight, the bathrooms were leaking, there was dated wallpaper on all the walls of the house, the deck was not up to council standards and overall the place smelt damp and mouldy.

Todd had previously dealt with renovation companies for his other properties but wanted to find a company that could manage the process due to his demanding work life. Kevin was the project manager assigned for Todd’s renovation. His clear communication, planning and responsiveness made the renovation particularly easy for Todd.

Renovations are not just about updating a house. They are also about a family’s story, their experience and a future that they can have in that home. As the family lived in the house for the duration of the renovation, it was important to ensure that minimal disruptions were made. Kevin forged a lasting relationship with Todd and his family.
