Hear From Our Students

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.

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.

In my 20’s and I could not see how I could be a home owner. I was lost to a poor mindset. Bernadette thank you for offering hope and a mindset change. Its not theory its attainable, tangible, practical solutions e.g. Voint Ventures. ACTUAL SOLUTIONS. The session was straight forward, honest and thorough. The school of Renovation is a community not just a school.

Just attended the New Rules of Renovating in Sydney & was blown away by all the insider tips & vast knowledge Bernadette shared with a group – and it was a free event! Can only imagine what she shares in her actual paid courses.

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.

Wendy Cairns

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!

Lola Taleb

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.
