    Claudia and her husband Pete have renovated small properties right through to large scale projects. Several years ago they bought a run-down 1960's weatherboard house (purchased for $460K) and ended up completing a major renovation ($75K), creating a beautiful sought after home ... on a tight budget! They set the suburb record for a property price of $1.035 million (2017)!
    They're currently renovating a 1960's brick house to sell.
    Both Pete and Claudia have a real hands-on DIY approach when it comes to renovating, focusing on achieving that 'WOW' factor ... thinking bigger, outside-the-box, and never afraid to take a risk.

    Claudia created The Renovate Avenue to share her knowledge, and inspire others to climb the property market via the renovation avenue, building a financially stable future to retire earlier (and do what you love).
