We're still open

With Auckland still in Level 4, our physical office remains closed and our team will continue to work from home. Unfortunately, we’re unable to complete valuations or other site work at Level 4, however these can recommence (within restrictions) when Auckland moves to Level 3. For the rest of NZ, Level 2 means we’re back in the office, working under careful COVID protocols. We remain committed to meeting your needs, so please give us a call on 0800 773 636 or email [email protected] to see how we can help.
