We were given Alan’s phone number from an old friend when we mentioned that we were looking at buying a house within the next 12 months with a recommendation that he was what we were looking for. After meeting him for the first time and him presenting a basic plan of attack after ascertaining what stage we were at with our process we came away with the feeling that we were in good hands. This feeling has not left us over the 6 months it took to find the house and the period after the move.
Alan is organised, approachable and good humoured. He gave us options and investigated things that we queried – such as utilising the KiwiSaver scheme. He also kept us up-to-date with what we needed to do next as well as recommending other services we should utilise that had not yet occurred to us to look for. It was such an easy process after hearing some horror stories and a lot of that would be because of our dealings with Alan.
We would not hesitate recommend him to anybody who was looking at going through this process who needed someone that they could actually relate to who wasn’t trying to push the big ‘sell’ and actually gave you a realistic view of where you were and what you needed to do.
