“Over the last few years, Therese and the team have been absolutely essential to our business, surveying residential and commercial properties. The service she provides is second to none and is complimented by her punctuality and reliability. Without her efforts we would have missed out on numerous jobs and contracts, we just completed one of the largest: the Sudima Hotel in Kaikoura.
Thank you, Therese and the Team!”
