How long have you been with Darling Downs Brick Sales?
I’ve been here since the beginning 1984.

What is your favourite DDBS product?
When you have owned and worked in a company for as long as I have, you love all the products you sell. It’s like your children, you’re not allowed to have favourites. However, I do like Aspenstone Pavers in Buttermilk. They’re a larger profile paver being 600x400mm and they have a smooth river washed texture in a creamy colour.

What has been your favourite moment at DDBS.
I have a few favourites -
When you have worked in the same business for over 39 years, you deal with repeat customers, Tradie’s and Reps. Many of them have become friends. It’s really enjoyable assisting customers with their bricks and landscaping choices. It’s also always good to catch up.

It has also been very positive since we moved DDBS to our Store and Display here in Markelee Street in 2019. We get so many positive comments from customers.

What are your favourite DDBS products?
That’s easy. I love bricks and pavers. They come in such a wide variety of colours, shapes and textures. They have a million different uses – building, paving, paths, mailboxes, walls, paths, steps, seats. You name it. They are strong and resilient building products that can look modern or old worldy and still stand the test of time.

What has been your favourite moment at DDBS?
I really enjoy when our customers send me images of their completed projects. Many of them will have initially contacted me through this Online store, Facebook Marketplace or Instagram. It’s so great to see their projects come to life.

What is your favourite Darling Downs Brick Sales product?
The NV Brick Range. There are a lot of very highly sought-after colours and styles and they look great. They also always have something unique that comes out of the kiln that is a one off production and they’re always the best looking bricks.

What has been your favourite moment at DDBS?
Finding and matching those hard-to-get bricks. You never get it exact but it’s great when you find something really close that matches a 30 plus year old brick.
