Charmaine Matthews is a shining example that through hard work and dedication, childhood
dreams really can come true. From the age of ten she knew her future lay in the
building industry, and to this day she emphasizes the importance of never
losing sight of your goals. Now as joint owner/director of Austart Homes, she
heads a company with an enviable reputation plus joint Franchisor of Austart
Homes Australia. Every franchise past and present she has taught the Austart
Homes system to which in turn they have ran very successful building companies.
Charmaine’s career began on the gold Coast where she took on a drafting
cadetship, “When I was only 21 yrs. of age and studying, I was asked by my boss
at the time what do you want to be when you grow up?” “I told him become a
builder and own my own building company”. Which now she does in-conjunction
with her husband and is now a Licenced Builder and Building Designer with
the QBCC. Charmaine has become proficient in every aspect of the of the
business from sales, contract admin, drafting, accounts, estimating and even
supervision of jobs on site. Charmaine is a Jill of all trades! Despite being
in a male dominated industry, Charmaine’s years of experience have earned her
respect among her colleagues. “I started when I was 19 and I always knew it was
going to be a challenge – but the industry is changing.” It’s important to set
yourself a goal and write it down – you need to go to work each day with a
clear direction and never loose track of your goals.”
