Here on the Gold Coast typically there are three types of client and the core of our Business.

1. High rise holiday apartment owner looking to value add and achieve the best rental yield. For these clients it's all about staying ahead of competition., and the clients we are now working closely with. Making even some minor changes such as furniture selections, complete refurbishment or a coat of paint, during this quite time and the return of tourists.

Challenges we face on these projects are delivery/installation access to some of the properties.

2. Typically this client would be an investor looking to renovate and on sell the property with the value add of renovation. Through our QBCC builders licence we undertake the full renovation from the planning stage to completion.

Challenges we overcome in this area are targeting customers in the early stage of the planning and approval process. All of which can be achieved remotely with limited customer physical contact.

3. Our other client type are the downsizers looking move from southern states to completely renovate a home or apartment to live in or purchase something already new that we generally furnish using their existing items of furniture with addition of what we can supply to complete the project.

Challenges in this area will be attracting new customers due to restrictions on movement from other states, and something we can't control.

In summary it's the confidence in customers spending during these uncertain times that will be the biggest challenge as we see things.

This is how we present our clients some options for unit packages without physical contact
