PROFESSIONAL BUILDER SECRETS PODCAST

Episode 35: Transforming Our Building Company With Michael Bolduc and Vanessa Willett

One thing I've learned is that communication with the client is key. You have to be able to understand their vision and concerns clearly.

In episode 35 of the Professional Builders Secrets podcast, we’re joined by Michael and Vanessa, Co-founders and owners of HC Habitation, based in the south of Montreal, Canada. Throughout this episode, we go over how Michael and Vanessa got started in the building industry and learn the mistakes they made along the way.

Michael Bolduc is one of the Co-founders of HC Habitation and is the definition of passionate. He sincerely loves what he does. So much so, that he considers himself retired because he doesn't ever feel like he's at "work".

Vanessa is another Co-founder of HC Habitation and is in charge of branding and marketing. She loves everything that's creative. From the website, and videos, to blogs. Besides creativity, her other passion would be her two children, or three if we include Michael.

“A specialised podcast made just for the owners of custom home building companies. Extraordinary guests, valuable content and  amazing stories from other builders.”
