    Hi everyone

    My name is Russ and I am a designer/builder operating in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

    I moved to Brisbane from Kent in 2006 with my wife and two kids. We came out on a business visa so if anyone would like some help or advise regarding that process I would be glad to help.

    My company is David Reid Homes, and we not only design and build luxury homes we also set up offices around Australia with business partners.

    Any questions please feel free to ask me and I'll be only too happy to help.

    Hi Russ

    I'm a builder - brickie by trade and there was'nt much work up their when we first landed in November last year. I was offered a job down in Adelaide so we made the move (again) and came here. we dont hate it here but our hearts are still in QLD. we are coming back up in August to do a reccie to see if we can make the move for real this time round.

    My question to you is, is there work for builders up there at the moment with this recession going on.

    Thanks Mark

    Hi Guys

    At the moment there is not a lot of work around, we ran an advert in Jan looking for trades and inundated. However, we are hearing that the entry level of the market has really kicked off in Jan & Feb with plenty of contracts being signed. That work will start materialising in the next couple of months so I would expect a very different story around June.
