What our clients say about us
Andrew & Susan
When we first talked we had been wanting to get on with investing in property for some time. However, with a young family and limited real available time, we struggled to gain any momentum to get it off the ground. Erskine + Owen then took over the process and removed the randomness. After a few sessions to understand your research, targeting and acquisition process, and to brief you on what we were after, you just made it happen, largely without the need for time commitment from us.
You made the due diligence and post purchase renovation process very smooth. All we had to do was effectively reply to emails with decisions. During due diligence there was no stone left unturned, which meant we were very confident about proceeding with the property
Greg & Jenny
When we met we, realised that our philosophies about property were congruent with Erskine + Owen, eg: property is a long-term venture, it is land that goes up in value.
Erskine + Owen then simply provided a ‘one-stop shop’, planning, profiling, search, negotiation (including getting us early access so that we could start renovations prior to settlement), project management of renovation, overseeing of the tenancy. You were professional in your approach and presented with credibility from the outset.
We felt very pleased with the properties you presented. We also had a real sense of satisfaction with both properties in that you project managed the renovation, but we were still able to be involved or add our touch if desired.
Bruce & Amy
During the recent purchase of a property in Auckland I have used the mortgage broking services of Wendy Ryan-Kidd.
I have found Wendy to be extremely professional in her approach and the service she delivered. The outcome was successful in that we secured the mortgage.
Securing the mortgage is ultimately what matters the most but the best part of using her was that way in which this was achieved.
We are professionals based in the UK and have commitments and constraints in the hours that we work and had to manage this as well as the time difference between the two locations.
By using Wendy we were able to limit the time we had to spend in dealing with financing issues in NZ but were confident in the way they were being attended to. It took away our need to deal with bank queries and negotiations and the general administrative process.
The bank did give us some last minute questions and requests that could have caused stress but Wendy, together with our lawyer dealt with them so we didn’t have to spent the time or hassle sorting them out.
What we appreciated most is the timely responses to our emails and queries and being kept up to date in what was going on.
In summary we would use Wendy again. We had limited involvement in the process but were kept up to date with progress at all times with timely communication in a process that was ultimately successfully which would be my definition of why you would use a mortgage broker.
Campbell & Coral
We decided to use Erskine + Owen because we wanted to buy an investment property but didn’t have the expertise or confidence to do so. We also didn’t want the hassle of dealing with estate agents or tenants.
Erskine + Owen reassured us from the start, solving these problems and making the whole purchasing process easy. You updated us on a regular basis during the search process and, when you did present a property, we had the confidence to go ahead, with the realisation that it was a great investment property for us.
From the time we first viewed the property to the day the tenants moved in was made painless. You removed the “fear factor” that is involved with any house purchase.
