When I first chat with Melissa about their Ellerslie project, I find out that she and Paul are already deep into their next project; it’s business as usual for these new venture seekers.
“We’ve renovated investment properties before, many years ago,” Melissa says.
Melissa and Paul’s sheer determination is clear to me as we continue our conversation. And with no surprises, I find out that with last year’s lockdown and housing frenzy, it was the perfect time for the couple to dive back into the market.
The first in line, a three bedroom Ellerslie home, which was well overdue for a facelift after being listed for the first time in 18 years.
“Everything was brown with carpet throughout and beautiful high ceilings,” Melissa says.
“We just wanted to make it light and bright,” Melissa adds, alluding to her vision of the home, which they purchased shortly after its debut.
