Like Norina, Ivana and Robert, we’re a young group continuing the journey the D’Orazio’s and Da Prato’s began years ago. But no matter where the road takes us, the experience and values passed down to us from previous generations will always light the way forward.
The Road Less Travelled
We’ve always been on this road.
It’s the road the D’Orazio’s and Da Prato’s took when they left everything they knew in Italy for the unknown of Australia. It’s the road that led Norina, Ivana and Robert, pictured here, to form D’Orazio and Da Prato Property Group. And it’s the road we take as D + D Property Group today.
We have the freedom to take a project’s scope and design in any direction. Our current residential development, Cavallo Estate, is one of them.
And as the group continues to go to new places we’re also building places. With expanded capabilities in construction and project management, we begin development of our first multi-level, mixed-use high rise this year.
But we don’t just build for us, we also build for you. On your land, with your materials, and to your vision. And when we build for you, we work to the same standard and quality as if it were our own.
Whether it’s yours or ours, the road we’re on can be winding and at times steep. There are no short cuts. But it takes you places. And we find this brings the most reward for the people we work with and build for.
