Mike Rose | Client
“Paul’s experience in the industry and attention to detail resulted in a settlement thousands of dollars more than we were initially offered. His professionalism, great communication and industry knowledge guided us through the tricky process, allowing us to make informed decisions. We would highly recommend Paul’s services to anyone negotiating what can be a confronting and complicated system.”
Bob Reed | Professor / Director / Master of Applied Finance and Economics (MAFE) Programme
“We hired CM-NZ to oversee an earthquake re-repair after the first repair was botched. I was very nervous about this re-repair, given that I had trusted our previous builders, which, in retrospect, was a mistake. CM-NZ closely oversaw the re-repair process, which took about 3 months. As it turned out, our new builders did a great job. However, by their conscientious checking of things, CM-NZ gave me a great peace of mind and confirmation that our re-repair job was done well. I highly recommend them.”
Tim Nees | Director New Work Studio / Tim Nees Architects.
