We first spoke to Kathy Vant Foort from BACKYARD BUYERS in April 2013 with the idea to rebuild and subdivide our block. This was the first of many visits to us that Kathy made, always at our convenience and either at home or meeting in a coffee shop. We engaged Kathy to manage our project when she presented us with a viable option to turn a small 1950’s 2 Bedroom cottage into 2 x 3 bedroom townhouses on our block.
Kathy was with us all the way, from the initial plans to architectural drawings, submission to council for the planning permit, selection of builders and other trades people involved and helping us to create not only our dream home but an investment for our future.
The benefit of dealing with Kathy was her knowledge and experience and her negotiation skills. Kathy also has a great team of talented people that she works with who specialize in areas associated with a building project such as ours.
When we moved in in June 2015, Kathy was there overseeing the finishing touches and following up with ensuring the local council was approving of all the works and our sub division was finalized.
At all times Kathy was professional and approachable and it was a pleasure to deal with Kathy and reassuring to have her overseeing everything.
We have already referred friends to Kathy for their building needs and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others in the future.
