MAKING RENOVATIONS EFFORTLESS

Experience the difference a renovation broker will bring to your project

Improva, formerly Blakes Of Sydney, are the experts you need by your side for your renovation or architecturally designed joinery project.

 

We’re a Sydney-based team of renovation brokers with more than three decades of renovating experience.

 

If you’re an individual who doesn’t know where to start with your renovation or you’re a business experiencing challenges with your existing joinery suppliers and want a one-stop shop, from tendering through to joinery management, Improva can help.

WHAT DOES A RENOVATION BROKER DO?

INDIVIDUALS

 

You may never have renovated before and you just don’t have the time, experience or desire to take it on alone. Or, this might be your second or third time renovating, and you’re looking to take a different and easier approach.

 

Our team shares the goal of making renovations effortless. We’ll ensure you have the best experience during your renovation because we’ll connect you with the right team — builders, joiners, stone masons, or whatever other suppliers you need to expertly deliver your project.

 

BUSINESSES

 

Businesses come to us to make the entire joinery process of their project, quicker, streamlined, and stress-free, and to minimise the risk of having a joinery horror story.

 

We complete a comprehensive tender process, providing them with 3 joinery prices. With our due diligence, we will recommend the best-suited supplier. 

 

You will work with the same Improva team for all of your projects. All communication with the joiner, other renovation experts and trades come through us, ensuring consistency and freeing up your time to focus on what you do best.

 

As joinery brokers, we make joinery effortless by managing the entire joinery and stonework process, ensuring timelines are met and the finished joinery work is to a standard that we all expect.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL

As renovation brokers, our business model is similar to that of a mortgage broker. A mortgage broker saves borrowers time and money by connecting them to the right lenders, then negotiating the rates and terms of the loan on their behalf.

 

In a similar way, we can save you a significant amount of time by sourcing suppliers, analysing quotes and negotiating prices. We’ll also personally recommend a trusted dream team of suppliers to deliver your project.

YOU’LL ALSO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR RENOVATION

Costing a renovation can be overwhelming. And getting quotes can be more difficult than you’d think. Then you’ve got to work out what is included and what isn’t in the quote, and whether you’re getting a fair price or getting ripped off.

 

We’ll take the pressure off by sourcing quotes for you from our trusted network, analysing each one, and providing you with a thorough market snapshot via our comparison analysis. We’ll then make in-depth recommendations and detail costs, inclusions and exclusions. We can also offer advice on areas to save if the quotes come in higher than budgeted.

 

We also recommend that you do your own research and due diligence on the quotes we provide. We want you to have complete confidence that our quote offers great value for money.

 

Like other types of brokers, we don’t charge you upfront for our service. We get paid by the suppliers you choose because we’ve matched you with the perfect people to work on your renovation. We don’t get paid unless we do our job extremely well by connecting you with amazing suppliers that you are confident to engage.

HOW WE’LL MAKE YOUR RENOVATION EFFORTLESS

KNOWING YOU

Getting to know you, your personality and your communication style, so we can connect you to the perfect supplier to execute your vision.

DESIGN

Taking care of designing everything from a kitchen to a new floor plan and interiors, if you don’t already have a designer. Renovating is easier when there are fewer people to deal with.

NEGOTIATE

Arranging and reviewing quotes from our trusted network of builders, joiners and suppliers. We’ll negotiate the best deals on your behalf.

CONNECT

Connecting you to every supplier you need to have involved in your renovation. We handpick all suppliers so they’re a great fit for your personality, your communication style, and your project size and budget.

WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE

Speaking your language and turning that into the technical specifications that suppliers need. You don’t need to learn a whole new vocabulary to get the perfect results.

AFTER HOUR APPOINTMENTS

Meeting you outside working hours, so you don’t need to take time off. We work to your busy schedule and know you’re busy earning the money to pay for your renovation…

THERE FOR YOU

Staying by your side during your renovation, giving our honest and independent advice and a helping hand along the way if you need us.
