My Home Sorted has expanded into Central
Otago appointing Chantal McCarthy as the
company’s first franchisee.
“It’s been a very exciting step in our first year
of operation and the concept has potential
to expand further,” says My Home Sorted
commercial manager Chris Collins.
“Chantal has been associated with property for
the last two years working with a real estate
company and brings with her business and
communication expertise plus a real desire to
The catalyst for Chantal to take on the franchise
was being in the home building market herself.
“To get a mortgage I needed a fixed price
build but I couldn’t find anyone offering what I
needed. I didn’t want a house with an existing

“We live in an exceptionally beautiful part of the
world and I wanted a home that reflected that

QTMAGAZINE SUMMER 2017
People investing in sections in Central Otago this

“We encourage anyone buying a section this summer

Roz says design and building brokering is a new
concept that is significant for both the building industry
and for people wanting more options when they are
planning to build or renovate.
“We are much like mortgage brokers in that we identify
clients building needs, then use our wide range of
architects and builders to find the right solution. We
negotiate the best deal with the builder who then pays
our fees so there is no cost to the client which exactly
the same as mortgage brokering. The key thing is that
our service is free to clients.”
The company works closely with Wanaka and
Christchurch based architects Chris Prebble and Three
Sixty Architecture. My Home Sorted covers the cost of
up to 20 hours of architectural services and the balance
can be included in the fixed price build contract.
“We are designing and building a better standard of
home in the area and helping people keep their design
concepts alive. Our services include interior design
and landscaping and we stay with clients up to one
year after project completion,” says Roz.
“We find when people work with us they are delighted
by the outcome which is exactly the way it should be.
We encourage clients to take advantage of our service
and not settle for less.”
