Designer Homes Brisbane
Guy Kits - Director
With his father, uncles and grandfather all builders and developers, Guy grew up on residential construction sites, thus creating his passion for seeing new homes created from what starts out simply as an idea… Having studied a variety of property and construction degrees at a tertiary level, Guy gained valuable experience working for some of the countries largest developers such as Brookfield Multiplex and The Gandel Retail Trust. He also spent many years as the head of Domino’s Pizza’s site acquisition and store fit out team, essentially securing, designing and delivering all of Domino’s new format stores Australia wide.
After years spent in the commercial, multi-storey residential and retail sectors, Guy decided that it was time to return to where his real passion lay – delivering wonderful custom designed homes for families in his home city of Brisbane.
"New Clients / New Sites / New Designs / New Homes is what makes it a pleasurable and exciting journey, year after year."
