MAINTAIN TO PROFIT founding director Mark Trafford says their strategy is to take the risk out of hiring trades people and eliminating the dreadful prospect of unscrupulous contractors, maintenance budget blowouts and missed deadlines – "on time, on budget every time is what we strive for for our clients".
“Risk mitigation is a need we've managed to meet. It was exactly the kind of service guarantee the property industry in particular wanted. That, combined with great service every time, the best contractors at fair market rates and a fully systemised approach to every job, no matter how small or large, turned out to be a winning formula".
Eight years on and this revolutionary company has really come up trumps, continually increasing their business turnover and successfully servicing over 10,000 clients. Another risk mitigator is third party endorsement, and it's a marketing tactic that MAINTAIN TO PROFIT worked very hard to master.
“In the current environment, people tend to ask for advice and referrals from people they know, trust and respect. Our job was to identify those influencers and get them to sell our company and services for us. Our customers such as landlords, property managers, body corporates and home owners became our sales people. In fact, they’re raving fans,” says Mark.
Today MAINTAIN TO PROFIT is considered a leader and expert in Property Maintenance and Renovations, running seminars Auckland wide for hundreds of clients every year. “It’s important to empower those people with the knowledge and confidence they need to maximise profit from their properties or create their dream home. When they’re successful, we’re successful,” says Mark. The team’s passion for property has been the key in their staggering growth through a really tough time for the building industry in the past few years.
It’s clear that MAINTAIN TO PROFIT isn’t a sexy company or revolutionary one. They have simply taken a good look at the building industry and how it has traditionally operated, and moved it to the next level. “It also helps that we provide unsurpassed customer service, combined with the best trades people available” says Dean, referring to the more than 40 trade sub-contractors who work with them. “We have a real sense of pride when we see many of these companies doing so well on the back of our success. There is a real family feel, and we all work as part of a large team which is great for the building industry in general."
