"A passionate advocate for exposing the notoriously complicated property industry, Natalie’s down to earth advice is priceless”

 -Paul Dunn B1G1 Chairman . TEDx Speaker . Best Selling Author

"who knows where we would have ended up if we hadn't found this" - Wade

"I now know exactly what questions I need to ask at every step.  This demystified the process and opened my eyes to stuff that I hadn’t even considered. I thoroughly recommend doing this before embarking on your new home journey."


"I really appreciate your advice and pointing out some things I hadn't even thought of! It's definitely a learning game, and am grateful for your knowledge!!"


"This showed us how to avoid the ‘nightmares’ and gave us the info we needed to have a good experience and actually feel excited about building.  This made us feel in control."


"This clears up so many myths and misconceptions! This is a great source of information for anyone who is thinking of building a home. I loved it!"


"Even just knowing what order to do everything in in itself made this well worth it for me.  Understanding how to prioritise the right steps in the right order was a godsend and the game-changer for how I felt about jumping in to start planning to build my new home."


"It blew the fears away for me. I felt more and more in control as I worked through each step. There were lots of things I hadn’t even actually thought about before which would have left me wide open to make mistakes along the way. I’m really happy I found this."


"With a better understanding of the process, I’m now fully in control and don't feel like anyone can pull the wool over my eyes.  Hearing Nat share her knowledge and expertise in an area I’m foreign in was priceless!"


"Signing up for this gave me the steps I needed to be able to build my dream home. Nat is really down to earth and relaxed with her advice which makes it so much easier to understand."


"After working through this process I feel confident that I’ll be able to build my dream home and be satisfied with every decision along the way"


"This made me feel more confident about building because I was armed with all the information I needed to get it right. Each topic was really useful, and all the information was what secured our decision to build rather than buy an established home"


"Building is a very mysterious process and there’s not a lot of help available out there.  Who knows where we would have ended up if we hadn’t found this!"


"It just made everything clearer and I felt more positive throughout the process. There were so many things that helped me that I just wouldn’t have known otherwise.  This is a very practical and user-friendly guide to building a home. I highly recommend it!"


"My two biggest fears have always been how much building my own home would cost me and also the fear that I could get ripped off. The 5 steps opened my eyes to so much and I’m feeling inspired to start this journey."


"I’ve taken the course from start to finish. I found it easy to follow and I got some great tips that will help me with my current project. Well done for creating such a valuable resource for people wanting to build a new home"


"If you're thinking about buying or building a home, you need to sign up for this first. The online guide goes through all the major considerations, step by step, that you need to think about before you spend a cent. You can't afford to build a new home without it."


"This is a great, easy to follow plan filled with helpful information.  I really enjoyed going through it, and gained more confidence in knowing what to expect when we build our new home."


This is a bit of a suit of armour that you've got on, so that when you go out to do this you're armed with the knowledge
