Hear From Our Students
I attended an auction of one of Bernadette’s projects at Moore Park Gardens. I asked the agent who had renovated the property so found out about Bernadette and TSOR that way. I was originally interested in the Airbnb course and enrolled in that only to realise my strata bylaws did not allow short term rentals. I didn’t complete that course but know I have all the info for when I have a suitable property. I enrolled in the Bootcamp as I was very interested in the Wonder Woman program and it was a prerequisite for that. I also listened regularly to the She Renovates podcast which gave me more confidence to give renovating for profit a go. Confidence, expert advice, support of an inspiring renovating community, knowledge, personal growth. Anyone who wants to find a way to build wealth for the future. Anyone looking for a way to move out of the 9-5 grind but still wants to be actively engaged in profitable projects.
I was searching for education that was delivered in a nurturing environment that championed women and their quest for self employment. I needed the knowledge delivered in a nut shell, with face to face learning, and by a person I could relate to. Bernadette’s personal and professional renovating experience and knowledge is delivered and given with warmth and without reserve. Anyone undertaking this course will see that Bernadette is a great ambassador for women. The education process in “The School of Renovating” is a logical movement though Modules that builds knowledge which in turn builds confidence bolstering a strong desire to go forward with direction and begin a new chapter. You are not alone in this journey. Anyone who is needing that gentle push to get started, or those of you who need that grounding knowledge to feel empowered. This is an excellent introduction into the property world from renovating, to investment properties to Airbnb’s.
Been through the Bootcamp, Bernadette and Stephen are very caring, pragmatic, great at what they do, and financially savvy. Definitely not the infamous fluffy feel good type of seminar. Of course, these kind of works require lots of on the ground learning. However, having such an experienced and genuinely caring mentor provides lots of support and confidence to get projects up and going, and ultimately building wealth.
Thank you, Bernadette, and your team for providing such a thorough and well-planned course in My Airbnb Empire. The information you include has been invaluable during my entry into the Airbnb market. The structure of the course is easy to navigate and the combination of online self-paced learning with small group live video sessions ensured I always felt welcome to ask questions related to my specific property. I loved the intimate community you fostered. The highlight for me was participating in a full-day on-site workshop with you and a small cohort of like-minded property managers. I am pleased to say that my first Airbnb property is now thriving, and I eagerly anticipate setting up my next property! Thanks again.
Hi Bernadette Just wanted to say a big thank you for today. I learned so much and really appreciated all of your advice and insights. You are certainly very inspiring! You’ve given me the confidence to start thinking of my project!
When I first started Airbnb I knew nothing and went with a hope and prayer method – which got me going but I had so many questions. Bernadette gives so many insights and helpful hints – Thats what mede me profitable! Things like How to drive up the price, be seen, cope with so many issues you come across even down to what linen is cheapest and best. My property gets me $10K a year more because of Bernadette and I still have hair and totally love it – Big thanks
Growing up and then marring into the renovating and building industry I realised from the introduction I still have lots to learn in securing a profit. Very valuable information in succeeding or failing. I was one of the first 3 to enrollent this weekend and so glad I dont have to travel to Sydney as first time they will be holding the course in Melbourne. Looking forward it.
Bernadette is down to earth and sincere in her approach and we’ve felt she really cares about us getting ahead in life. My sister & I have learnt so much in a few short hours and now have the confidence and motivation to move ahead in the right direction to finally achieve our joint venture dreams. Thank you Bernadette & The School of Renovating Team. Jemma & Jade.
Very smart strategies based on experience and skill. Bernadette is very generous with her knowledge and provides a great roadmap to success in her training programs.
I loved listening to this conversation this evening. I think we need to be reminded often by others and ourselves that we are “allowed” to do and have the things we hope and dream of. As women I believe it is something that we can easily catch ourselves out on. Those thoughts and feelings of self doubt in our own abilities and prioritising others needs ahead of our own are often discussed amongst a circle of female friends I have. We remind each other of that need to take action..just one step..we call it. As long as we are taking a step forward or a step closer to the goal or the dream it is always a positive thing. One of the things I love the most about your podcast, your live streams, your bootcamp and The School of Renovating is that you really do inspire and empower women who have had a long time desire or dream to renovate. I listen to a different topic on your podcast every morning on the way to work and have sometimes listened to the ones that resonate the most several times. I find listening to them puts me in such a positive mindset for the day. Your generosity with information and sharing of experiences and knowledge from other colleagues in the industry is truly amazing and something not often seen in this industry, particularly how you make yourself available to people and actively participate in the forums with us. I am looking forward to all of the things I am going to learn in your Bootcamp journey and being one step closer to realising a deep seated dream that I have had since I bought and then renovated my very first house. I don’t have iTunes, but I think this would be the review I would happily leave you.
So happy I came to this workshop. Bernadette was so detailed in her early beginnings of renovating and success to date. She explained all facets of renovating, flipping or investment properties short or long term so well. So expressed by her delivering on information to help us achieve our goals. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend anyone to attend these workshops if interested in investing in the above.
We found the “Renovating for Wealth” very interesting and we wanted to go further and keep learning with Bernadette beyond this one event. Bernadette was very easy to relate to, very down-to-earth, but with such expertise and experience. She gave us the confidence to believe we could actually take the next step to renovate as a lifestyle choice. This means we can move forward doing something we love, while making money… that’s just great!
Really enjoy reading your emails and booklet on 30 ways. I am very new to this area but really want to do a renovation so your information is invaluable to me. I really like how you explain everything in simple terms too.
I love your wit. I do believe in the woohoo factor and it is said that if you open your heart the way you did you allow new opportunities in. Besides you are a very hardworking and savvy person so let’s not discount you created that opportunity.
Thanks for sharing such useful information. I am planning to renovate my bathroom and the details you mentioned about lack of storage space was left out of my mind. I’ll take care of it now and will organize a better storage space.
So much value for a three-hour event! Attending today has really given me the confidence to try my first renovation. And the tips are GREAT! Bernadette has really opened up my mind to new ways of tackling renovations without paying an arm or leg. Honest, genuine and helpful!
It was so much informative and I liked the line most was “keep the total cost of the renovation below 1.5% of the value of the property”. You are right Bernadette Janson. Most of us are not aware of the cost and after the whole process is done we can’t be satisfied because of that matter as you know. Thanks for your valuable ideas.
The School Of Renovating gave me the confidence to take action. The topics they share in webinars are all very detailed and easy to follow or use as reference.
A great couple of hours of learning and confidence building. Bernadette is giving without expectation. Thank you.
