“The amount of detail that Plan Assist supplied the builders with, ensured there were no nasty surprises for us or them. They also negotiated with the builder in our best interest, and kept them focused and on track throughout the renovations.”

Peter, NSW 

“I could not be happier with the work that the Plan Assist team recently carried out for me. The renovation of our home was an incredible experience from start to finish. From project management to build the work was exceptional. I would highly recommend using the Plan Assist team thinking about building or renovating. Don’t waste your time looking anywhere else.”
