As the farming heartland of New Zealand, the Waikato is home to many dairy farming and agriculture operations and a host of other businesses. With Hamilton considered one of the fastest growing cities in the country, it’s no surprise that the surrounding farming towns and communities are also gaining in popularity. It’s a rapidly expanding market for property development and home renovations.

Property types and housing styles vary immensely, ranging from blocks of flats and small townhouses through to farmhouses and lifestyle blocks. But no matter what kind of house, the demand for a reliable, quality and value for money home renovations provider is evident across the region. That’s where Refresh can help.

Mandy and Lawrie Foster bring a wealth of business experience to the area and tap into the hugely successful business group that is Refresh Renovations, with well over a thousand renovations completed across New Zealand. The company’s design and build process supports homeowners through the different phases of a renovation, streamlining the process and helping to set and plan for clear goals. A unique project management tool allows for instant updates and communication between the project manager, all involved tradespeople and the homeowners.

Mandy is passionate about helping homeowners improve the design, appearance and functionality of a house. She holds a Diploma in Interior Design and used to work as an interior designer and decorating consultant for Guthrie Bowron in Central Otago. Mandy is also responsible for everything ‘administration’, with a wealth of experience in managing the accounting of a mixed farm operation. Lawrie has project managed various building projects including home renovations and business premise refurbishments. Previously, he has implemented, integrated and managed major IT systems and was the owner and director of an IT sales and services company.

Running another successful Refresh Renovations Waikato franchise, Steve and Lee Roper have been in the property investment industry for over 15 years. They have enjoyed building and renovating their own personal portfolio of properties and now utilise their skills to help others. Steve project manages all home renovations and liaises with clients and tradespeople to deliver the project on time and budget. Planning is a crucial part of the renovation process, which is why Refresh works closely with homeowners from the outset, to get things right first time.

Steve and Lee work with a trusted team of professionals, including Glyn Simpson, Darron Langton and Zane Vandy. They have built a solid network of industry contacts and have an in-depth understanding of the local property market, helped by the fact that Steve has previously served as secretary for the local property investors association and worked on commissioning projects for a large corporate company.

Together, the Refresh Renovations Waikato teams offers specialist renovation services to homeowners living in and around the Waikato – from the Bombay Hills and Port Waikato in the north down to the Kaimai Ranges and Mount Ruapehu in the south, and from Mokau on the west coast across to the Coromandel Peninsula in the east.
