Geoff & Glenda Swan

Directors

Geoff and Glenda Swan can share many inspirational stories since buying the business from Les Warren in 1984 and building it up to the business it is today.

Originally starting in the business as a supervisor, Geoff is a qualified carpenter and registered builder with 40 years building experience. Geoff is a member of the Master Builder's Association of Australia and the Housing Industry Association of Victoria, alongside being a long time member of Rotary, with nearly 20 years service. Geoff is also a past President of the Diamond Creek Rotary Club.

Geoff is community-orientated and was personally touched by the devastating fires at Kinglake and surrounding areas. As a result Geoff and Glenda have been active fundraisers and mentors, assisting in the rebuilding process through the local traders and Rotary.

Geoff and Glenda are parents of five children and have fourteen grand children.

Melissa Swan

General Manager

Having grown up within a family building business, property and construction have been key influences within my working career. My current role as general manager for LP Warren Homes, I play an integral role in the day to day business operations, from managing the strategic direction of the business, to making key decisions and overseeing the projects on site.

My main focus when entering the family business was to learn all aspects of the business from the ground up before taking on the role of General Manager, this was important to me to build a solid understanding of the business to enable better decision making and become a dynamic leader within the organisation. This hands on experience includes establishing organisational processes and procedures, sales and production estimating and quoting, compliance of standard building practices and regulations (home design and home construction), accounting and site supervising.

Juggling the demands of family life and running a small business, the challenges of construction keep me focused and determined to succeed in the building industry. My long term goals are to gain my building license to take over full control of the family business and firmly establish myself as a successful female Custom Home Builder.

Renee Glessig

New Homes Consultant

Working as a New Homes Consultant for LP Warren Homes for almost 8 years has given me the opportunity to develop my skill set and knowledge in the Construction Industry with key experience in design, estimating, building/planning regulations, colour consultancy, contract administration and more. This experience ensures my clients are well informed and have the support they need to take them through the custom building process.

My extensive building experience accompanied by ongoing design and business sales training allows me to offer my clients, tailored home building solutions from conception through to completion to the most discerning home buyer.

I pride myself on creating relationships with my clients that are based on trust and integrity. I deliver professional transparent advice and support to my clients from the moment they step into the display to handing over the key of their new home.

The best thing about my job is the people I meet! I am so grateful for the friendships I make through this journey. They are highly valued and respected.

I represent a company I am proud of and am backed by an amazing team of professionals who are the best at what they do...building people’s dreams!

Collectively we come together to support our clients and ensure we take them through a process which is exciting, informative and most of all exceed expectations.

I believe it is not just about getting the floor plan right! It is about understanding people and families and relating to what is important to them! Once this is achieved anything is possible!

Outside of LP Warren life I share a love for construction with my husband Luke who runs a successful earth moving business. We enjoy our time with friends and family especially time with our gorgeous niece and nephews.
