Lauren is our Renovation & Property Coach. She is a qualified Real Estate agent, runs a Renovation Consultancy Business and has completed over 17 renovations.
What Lauren loves most about renovating is transforming ugly, unloved, dysfunctional properties into beautiful homes that people will live in and love. Secondly, Lauren loves that renovating allows her to be her own boss, manage her own time, & create wealth while setting an example for her family, to work with amazing people and express her creativity. Lauren started her renovation journey initially it was out of necessity after they purchased their first home which was just two tiny huts stuck together in a very small rural township. Lauren immediately saw the value in taking a mediocre property and renovating to improve the value and appeal. After years of working for others, Lauren committed to renovating full time, giving her control of both her earning capacity and time. Lauren was inspired to become a Renovation Coach as it’s an extension of her work, Lauren loves meeting fabulous people, share her knowledge and experience and best of all help people reach their goals with more direction and confidence. Lauren loves seeing people’s achievements and excitement when they complete their own projects. Knowing I have played a small role in getting them there gives me great joy, becoming a Renovation Coach is a dream come true!
Kelly is our Renovation & Property Coach. Kelly is an experienced property researcher who has been flipping property full-time for 3 years.
What Kelly loves most about renovating is when her vision comes to life and all the selections come together. Kelly also loves being thrifty and finding a bargain at the Demolition Yards! Kelly started her renovation journey about 3 years ago when the idea of getting a few investment properties could give her the lifestyle she always wanted. Kelly set out on an educational journey to make income for her future allowing her to have more time and money for the things she loves like travelling! Kelly was inspired to become a Renovation Coach because she gets enjoyment from watching her fellow renovators succeed, Kelly finds most rewarding when she can support someone along the way by sharing her experiences to move forward and achieve their own renovation goals.
