Latest Homes & Makeovers From Maxine Brady

HELLO MAGAZINE EDITORS. Welcome to my houses & makeover portal.

Below is a selection of homes and makeovers. If you’re interested in any of the projects below email me at Tell me the homeowner name as detailed below – and I will send you the pictures and my homeowner info.

All the houses & makeovers you see below are active. I’ve clearly stated if these are the finished images or reccky shots.

When a house is sold, it will be removed from the portal. I’ll be updating it frequently, so if you have a space for a home that needs a quick turn around, come visit this page (or email me for the link).

When it says ‘Photographer TBC’ – I’ve not allocated a photographer as yet. I’m open to suggestions on who to shoot it with. With rights it depends on the fee for the feature, I can be flexible. Copy can be turned around at short notice.

Video content is available for some of the houses for you to use on-line as part of a house tour for an additional fee.

All shoots will comply with strict social distancing regulations and following health and safety guidelines.
