We all have a horror tradesmen story to tell! It may be the plumber that never came back after you gave him a deposit, the painter that never showed up on time. Is there anyone else still living with a really bad floor tiling job from eleven years ago? I know my dad is!

TRADEBUSTERS is a Sydney-based tradesmen referral service, aimed at helping homeowners take away the guesswork, risk and time involved in finding reliable, “used and known” tradesmen.

Formed by Laorence Nohra, a qualified Chartered Accountant by profession, with the help of good friend Sharon Zahra, Tradebusters has grown from a network of ten to now eighty independent and “handpicked” businesses covering over 60 fields of trades like builders, cabinet-makers, carpenters, roofers, tilers, kitchen and bathroom renovators, and more.

“We both grew up with tradies in the family. In the office, we were always the “go-to” girls when it came to our colleague needing a tradesman- they clearly valued a credible word of mouth recommendation over an “unknown” from a search directory. This led us to spend months exploring the resources available to homeowners in sourcing good tradesmen. Surprisingly we realised there were very few.” says Laorence Nohra.

Shortly afterwards Tradebusters was created and two women experienced a career change!

Tradebusters unique business model ensures homeowners are not just getting “any” tradesmen. No tradesman can pay to join the network. It is “invitation only” and involves an extensive pre-screening process including interviews with previous customers and even sighting their work. The businesses in the network pay a fee only if they are successful in obtaining a job, yet still remain competitive by offering users of the service a favourable discount.

Homeowners benefit from a free one-stop service that can assist them with co-ordinating all their trade needs - anything from repainting a family room, renovating a kitchen or bathroom, a house extension or even building a new home!

“Our service is more than just about handing over tradesmen names and co-ordinating schedules. We both have built and renovated and know how stressful it could be. Most home renovators want to talk to someone about their project. We genuinely treat each project as if it was our own, offering tips, information and supplier resources that will help homeowners save time, money, add value and ultimately make their home building and renovation vision a reality. And best of all, it’s as simple as one call”.
