    "Duane performed a Healthy Home inspection and Methamphetamine test for me. He was so easy to work with; professional, knowledgable, organised and friendly.
    The reports were of a very high standard. I can highly recommend Duane if you’re in the market for an inspection, test or property report. He definitely knows his stuff, along with how to explain things simply to the average person.

    "I got in touch with Duane on recommendation from someone. It turned out to be a good one. I was able to set up time with Duane quite easily.

    Inspection was done on time. He even allowed for my Mrs to go to site after inspection and answered her questions.
    He then spent time talking to me answering my concerns as well on another day.

    All the communication was professionally managed. The report itself was detailed and gave us a good understanding of this property.

    I was quite happy with what I paid for and what I got. I would recommend these guys to anyone."

    "Upon reading many positive comments & recommendations for Duane from A Buyer's Choice, we asked him to inspect a property that we had made an offer on.

    He was very prompt with communications, and kept us in the loop as to when inspection would be taking place, and when it had been completed.

    He delivered his inspection report in the stated timeframe.

    His report was very easy to understand even though it was detailed, and his comments were supported with photographs. His layout of the report was ideal too, first briefly discussing items needing attention/consideration, then followed with the full inspection in detail. He did the follow-up inspection too in a timely manner.

    We highly recommend Duane for your next home inspection, you won't be disappointed.

Each time he has gone over and above, taking lots of photos, trying every powerpoint and appliance, getting our report to us at a very fast pace and fitting us in very quickly. He has great communication and is very good at his job. His reports are thorough, in depth, easy to understand and honest. I wouldn't use anyone else for our building reports, they are so worth it. I can't recommend him enough."

    "We engaged Duane for a pre-purchase inspection, and I can't praise his sheer professionalism enough. He communicates promptly at every stage of the process, which is key during such a fast-moving and stressful time, and even in the midst of a second COVID lockdown he was only delayed by a day when I was expecting weeks. He does what he says he will in when he says he'll do it, and when you're feeling caught in the whirlpool of promises and delays that is first home buying, that certainty is not a small thing.

    Most importantly, his report was comprehensive and comprehensible, and highlighted a few issues which required remediation. Duane was more than happy to discuss these problems over the phone and suggest options and prices, and armed with this information and his report we were able to go back to the vendor and successfully negotiate for the work to be done at their expense. His thorough report put us in a strong bargaining position, and without it I don't think we would have had the success we did.



    In summary, Duane made a complicated, uncertain and stressful time much, much simpler, and I can't recommend his work strongly enough.

    "Duane from A Buyer's Choice helped us with two property inspections this year. The first identified some costly structural issues that we had not picked up ourselves and ultimately saved us from a potentially disastrous purchase. The second was incredibly thorough and confirmed the nature of the unconsented work on a property. We found both reports excellently detailed and the turnaround was very quick. Duane was a pleasure to work with, a true professional and we would highly recommend him and his company."

A report that my lawyer even commended on compared to what he has seen in some other cases.

He certainly exceeded our expectations. He made a huge difference in our understanding of what we were buying and a huge difference in our tender.

    "Mr Boyd responded promptly to my request for a pre purchase property inspection. He was precise and comprehensive in his explanation of his service via e-mail and text messaging and in arranging the inspection with the sales agent.
    Mr Boyd delivered the report again promptly with full consideration of my limited time frame. The inspection report exceeded my expectations. It is thorough, clear, comprehensive and well documented with photographs what's more the final price for this service proved very competitive to other inspection companies. I would definitely consider employing Mr Boyd’s services in the future!

    "I engaged this company on the back of the positive reviews but after purchasing and moving into the house have found how poor a job they have carried out and I’m now faced with large costs to remediate items that were not highlighted in the report.

    Insulation in the roof is of some brown mud/dust nature and this will need to be replaced by proper wool insulation as it’s useless and does not provide any insulation at all. This will cost me a lot of money and now having settled I can’t claim it of the seller.

    Roof gutters had gunk and leaves and are overflowing in rain and water is coming back onto windows. No mention on the report. I now have to install a Downpipe and gutter mesh at my cost coz after settlement I can’t claim from seller.

    We relied and paid for a premium job but got a really shoddy experience and are now burdened with costs we shouldn’t have.
    "

    John Goodrum - NZ Master Franchise Owner responded:
    "Hello Rohit, thank you for your review. We take our customers feedback very seriously. I am sorry that you feel that the report was not a premium job. I have personally reviewed the report on your property which is a 48 page report with 174 photographs. Ceiling insulation - on page 11 of the report there is a photograph showing good coverage of insulation which is reported as in average condition. The report states that the thickness was measured at 70mm, that no R-Value rating was present and that the insulation does not appear to meet the new Healthy Homes standard required for rental properties. The insulation met the standard when this house was built in the 1990's and so would not be reported as defective. It was reported as not up to Healthy Homes standard. Gutters - on page 12 there is a photograph of leaves in the gutter with the caption under saying - it needs clearing of minor debris. On the same page - Spouting and Downpipe Assessment - it states - There is a small amount of debris build up within the spouting (guttering). While it is not currently a major obstruction there are benefits to having it cleaned. Both of the issues you raised Rohit were covered in the report as described above. I do appreciate you are disappointed that you will be up for the expense of adding extra insulation and have chosen to install gutter mesh and another downpipe. Even clean gutters and another downpipe would not cope with torrential rain as we experienced recently. Please feel free to contact me personally. "

    "Matt was great and has been happy to respond (quickly) to any questions I've had (thanks again Matt!). Just a note if you're looking to have an inspection done to help you get the best value out of the report - ask the agent to ask the owner/occupier make all areas of the house and fittings accessible for the inspection (ie the closet if thats where the roof access is). Matt wasn't able to get into the ceiling or check the stove due to not being able to touch or move the owners possessions so I've had to make a decisions on faith (and his best efforts with reaching into the ceiling with only his camera) regarding those areas. If you're looking at a cross-lease perhaps have your agent check on entry points to the underneath of the building and have them arrange access as that's also an area not able to be covered in my case."

    "We used services of Duane from A Buyers Choice for our first home purchase.
    We were working against a tight timescales and Duane delivered ahead of time having made the inspection visit within 24 hours of the initial call and worked through the weekend on the written report. He called us just before the inspection to ask about any particular areas of focus and after he’d conducted the visit it to share his initial observations.
    The written report was very easy to follow and recommendations for remediation of findings clear.

    Duane also verbally gave us an idea where the property stands in comparison to houses in the area of the same age and built using similar materials.

    The Valuer recommended a Safe and Sanitary Report (which the lender insisted on) and we called on Duane’s services again to ensure compliance. And on tight timescales again.

    The speed of response, the professionalism and Duane’s attention to detail is very impressive and the professional liability insurance is higher than competitors’. The jobs were reasonably priced and worth every cent spent.

    If it wasn’t for Duane we would have struggled to get our offer across the line on time. And the Builders Report gave us a piece of mind - much needed when you buy your first home for a substantial amount.

    Thanks Duane and hope to do business with you again!

    "I was a first home buyer and didn’t know much about house buying process. While everyone knows the importance of getting a pre-purchase inspection, many people I know had bad experience with their inspectors and wouldn’t recommend theirs to me. I resorted to asking around on FB and more than one person recommended Duane.

    I’m very happy with his service. He was very professional and quick to respond to our enquiries. He knew the building codes well (more than many other trades people) and produced a very detailed report for us. He was very patient in answering our calls and explaining the issues to us to help as make an informed decision about the house.

    After we bought the house and fixed a minor leak, he offered to come back and check the moisture readings for us for free. I wasn’t expecting that from an inspector.

    I highly recommend his service.

We were first home buyers and needed quite a bit of hand-holding to walk us through the results of the inspection. Not only was the report extremely comprehensive, it saved us money by allowing us to negotiate a more reasonable purchase price, and gave us a really good working guide as to what needed fixing when we take possession. Duane was unfailingly responsive throughout, answered all our questions and gave common sense advice. Can't recommend highly enough!"

    "This is now my second time using Duane and I will continue to use him as my building inspector. I was impressed with the first inspection, he was so thorough and informative. The second time around he has been even more amazing. I cannot fault him at all. Being a solo mum I really need that extra help looking into a house, he goes above and beyond that expectation. He is willing to help out and offer guidance even when there is no inspection being done. "

    "Duane did an excellent job with our Home inspection. He was in time, courteous, diligent and also took the time to go over the few challenges he found and his recommendations around these, straight after the inspection was done, which allowed us to get onto these issues straight away. His report came back promptly and is professional, easy to read and well presented. Duane also kindly returned to our property for a re-read of some of the moisture readings. I highly recommend Duane and will certainly use him again in the future should I need his services again."

The report itself was comprehensive and included moisture testing which was helpful noting a couple of areas which concerned us.

His building report highlighted areas that needed to be repaired and to check Council consents on jobs that were completed by the Vendors which i wouldn't have known without Duane's building inspection expertise.

    "Outstanding service, rang at 5pm on Wednesday, inspection of the property happened at 1pm on Thurday, and the report was ready before 11.30am on Friday. The real estate agent advised the inspection was thorough, taking approx 1 1/2 hours (she said she had seen many inspections take a third of that time), and the report reflected that thoroughness. It highlighted areas where money would need to be spent, and also gave peace of mind that the property would be a sound purchase. I would most definitely use A Buyers Choice again."

    "This review is not only a reflection of my opinion but also the opinion and feedback from a number of different parties including a number of real estate agents, other builders/building inspectors and geo thermal inspectors.

    Duane is an absolute expert in his field. He is very digilent with an eye for detail. His work ethic is beyond satisfactory going the extra mile to provide precise details and evidence so that any other builder or contractor can read all key areas for concern without even visiting the property.

    I believe Duane saved us from years full of unsuspected surprises and struggle. For this we have much to thank him for.

    I wouldn’t go elsewhere. A master of his trade with exceptional care in taking every bit of time necessary. Although I know not standard we were fortunate enough to have him explain the details of the house to my partner while on site.

    "Excellent service! Duane Turner kept very good communication both before and after the house inspection . Arrived prior the agreed time, was very professional and thorough. Saved us thousands of dollars as pointed out major issues with the house. Sadly we didn’t reach an agreement with the seller, so we walked away of the purchase. We are doing another report on the next possible house and are very happy to book with Duane again. "

I needed a quick turn around for a home inspections on a place i was purchasing. Duane was great. He organised the inspection to be done within a few days and even got us the report back on the same day. His attention to detail was amazing and this showed in the report. I have since recommended him to other people i work with and would happily us his services again.

The old saying "Behind every great man is a great woman" To Zoe (office lady/main contact) who went above and beyond her call of duty to ensure we got what we required, very helpful with fantastic customer service. I recommend Buyers Choice home inspection to anyone and everyone, reasonably priced and it's a one stop shop. NO fuss DO IT RIGHT! DO IT ONCE CROWD! not only a building inspection but it's handy to know you can also get that dreaded Meth test done at the same time. Ticks all around.

The report findings and your time and patience in going through the results with us enabled us to have the confidence and certainty of knowing exactly what was lacking and what needed to be done.

    "Duane Turner has done 2 building reports at our request and both have been extremely comprehensive and detailed. One of the houses that we looked at appeared to be a tidy dwelling and we had gone so far as to pay the deposit. Duane spotted serious issues with plumbing and water damage (independently estimated at a cost of $25,000.00) We believe Duane's experience, knowledge, and commitment to thoroughness was key to identifying this issue which was hidden beneath floor coverings and underfloor insulation. He saved us from a very costly mistake.

    We met Duane at the property he was inspecting for us and he talked us through the whole process clearly. He asked us if we had any concerns and was so professional from the beginning. Upon receiving the report we both found it very easy to read and thorough.
    Thank you so much for being a part of our journey to buying a new house!

    "I have known Duane for a while, but never needed his services until lately. I had always heard all about all the inspections that he does and didn't really give much thought to what the report actually looks like.
    After Duane arrived at the property exactly on time (even though it was in Hamilton) and inspected the property, he was more thorough than I could have ever imagined.
    When I received his report a couple of days later, I was amazed to find a 68 page report which contained every single little detail about the property. Nothing had been overlooked, and everything he checked was not just a simple look and touch, but a detailed inspection. A day later the Meth Test report arrived and again, extremely thorough and undoubtedly accurate.

    If you are going to be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a property, you want to make sure that this small investment for a building inspection is done right, and done properly. I would highly recommend Duane and would never look elsewhere.

    Thank you Duane and I look forward to working with you again.

    Gary.

    "I had booked a pre-purchase inspection with Duane for a property we were looking to buy. Duane then informed me that he would unfortunately not be able to do the work. He explained that the franchise had received negative publicity (there was a FairGo piece on a different (!) licensee), and that he was worried about any potential credibility issues this could create for us. I commended him on his integrity and we ended up using the services of a different company for the initial inspection. However, the other company provide a substandard report, missed whole areas, and overall didn't give us confidence.

    With little time left to meet the conditions of the purchase, I called Duane again and explained the situation. Within hours he had organised a site visit, and within days we had the full and very comprehensive report. He took the time to talk me through details over the phone and overall provided a stellar service.

    I would definitely use his services again should the need arise!

    "Duane is a thorough and careful professional who does his research when facing unusual situations and takes his responsibility to make an honest assessment very seriously. He came twice to our home to look at a potential problem before satisfying itself that the issue was not major and could be easily dealt with. His service is the first home inspection that I have paid for that I felt I got a genuine evaluation of the property.

    He is also a very nice person and easy to work with."

    "Kevin from Home Inspections did a brilliant job. He came around in the weekend which was convenient for me and completed a detailed inspection of everything in and around my house.

    The Inspection report was just what I needed, it highlighted issues and gave good commentary. I really like the number of detailed pictures in the report (hundreds) as this give me a visual indication of any problems to consider.

    Kevin also gave me some good advice on a number of areas across the house and his quick response back with the details I needed was excellent.

    Well done Home Inspections

    "We were very impressed with Duane's service. We needed an urgent building inspection / report done on a home we were considering bidding on at auction, so needed to have the confidence to make an unconditional offer.

    As soon as I'd spoken to Duane on the phone, he got in touch with the real estate agent to set up a time the next day to do the inspection. He sent through / gave us all the documentation we needed in a really timely manner, and even called me directly after the inspection to talk me through a few minor issues.

    We were the successful bidders at the auction (for our first home), and having the builders report done was a key component in having the confidence that the house was a good purchase.

    I would recommend Duane to anyone looking for a professionally delivered and well-handled builders report in the Auckland area.

And because of there was only 5 days before the property was to go unconditional, Duane took time out on a Sunday night to be able to get the report out to us in such a timely manner. He also followed up with a phone call detailing the most important points so that we could use that information to ensure that we were protected in the purchase of the property. We very much appreciate his professionalism and efficiency and would not hesitate to recommend his services."

Two days after my call Duane was up at the property doing the inspection. At completion of the inspection Duane phoned me to inform me the inspection had been completed and all in all it was a good report. Duane promised the report first thing on Tuesday morning and true to his word the report duly arrived. Duane completed a very thorough inspection and this was done with total professionalism and efficiency. The report was very comprehensive and extremely east to read and the presentation of the report was first class.

    "Duane was able to inspect a property I had made an offer on within 24hours of my request. He was through, professional and personable. Duane explained what all of the jargon meant in real terms, talking me through the materials used and the maintenance that would be required, which gave me a degree of comfort and clarity. I was able to make an informed decision based on his report, and although I decided not to go through with the sale my broker remarked that I should be very glad to have paid for the building report as it has saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars. I agree.

    I will definitely be calling on Duane's services again without hesitation as I continue to look for a home.

    Highly recommend.

    "Duane from A Buyers Choice Home Inspections was fantastic. We have no hesitation in recommending Buyers Choice and Duane in particular for a thorough and timely property pre purchase inspection. Duane went the extra mile and was able to discuss his findings in a clear manner. His approach and the information he provided us with was invaluable in helping us make the right decision. Thanks Duane. Rose and John Matthewson"

    "Duane Turner performed a building inspection for me in Glen Innes. He called to advise that he was to perform the inspection on the day I requested and was punctual (early) and very thorough. Duane demonstrated that he had listened to me about my concerns and reinforced the other reviews that I had read on the 'No Cowboys' website about A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections by providing me with factual and comprehensive information, immediate answers to questions that I had and prompt delivery of a written report (next day). I found him to be ethical in his dealings, understanding of my perspective, clear with his communication and realistic in his inspection.

    Because of this and the excellent service that I have received, I can not only see immediate VALUE in choosing A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections, but I am very satisfied with the result of Duane's work.

    I am glad that I could find similar, positive reviews on 'No Cowboys' beforehand and also highly recommend this business for a home inspection.

    "I called Duane to get a building inspection done and was expecting to have to wait for a few days at least, He made an appointment for the next day, arrived on time with the Real Estate agent and was already starting the inspection which was great. I found Duane to be very thorough and always informing me as he went, very professional, easy to approach and discussed any concerns I had.
    I will be recommending Duane and A Buyers Choice to any family/friends that are looking for a property inspector.

    Thank you Duane and Sarah for making this experience pleasant and putting my mind at rest.

    "Having just moved to NZ from Singapore and narrowing down to the perfect house was really a daunting task! Engaged the services of A Buyers Choice Home Inspections to carry out a pre-purchase inspection and thought my house-hunting journey started well with the home inspection.
    Gerard Naude inspected the home of my choice and must admit that he did a very praise-worthy job! Gerard was professional, timely and had a keen eye for details. He produced the deliverables within the specified deadline with no compromise in the findings or report. He was even willing to go the extra mile to indicate the defects in person (as I was not around when the inspection was carried out). Even the vendor's property agent was full of praises for Gerard. Well done Gerard ! Suresh

    "We were in the process of looking for a new home and when we found one, we needed to get a builders report. We happened to be at an open home when we met Sarah who duly gave us her card with a phone number.
    When we found our home, we duly got in touch with Sarah and asked if we could arrange a report being carried out for us.
    This was promptly arranged and the report covered everything from the roof, all outside the home as well as the interior including just about every appliance, window catches everything involved with the home.

    It was an 84 page report and it really made us feel secure in our purchase and would have no hesitation in recommending this firm to any body that is in need of getting a builders report carried out with such diligence.

    Thank you very much Sarah and Duane.

    "This weekend I utilised the services of Duane Turner from 'A buyers choice' home inspections'. WhIle I was fairly confident the property was in good repair, it is foolish not to do due diligence. Not only did Duane do a thorough, prompt and competent inspection, he gave me great confidence to purchase the property, and a few tips for on-going maintenance (and having won the auction I will use these as a guide).
    This is the second time I have used this company and both times Duane has been the inspector, great guy, honest, considered and seems to know all there is re property. Could not recommend more highly.

    We contacted you on a Saturday evening and it was no hassle at all for you to do the building inspection the following day (Sunday) and you had an extensive building report emailed to us by early Monday morning.

He identified one area on major concern which we were able to get fixed before we moved in at the vendors expense saving us a lot of money.

    Duane offered to do a follow up check on the areas identified that needed remedied and followed through with it. He was very friendly, approachable and worked around us on for appointments at the property.

    "In January I was looking to get the first pre-purchase inspection I had ever arranged done. I had just sold my own house and seen a report that I thought they hadn't served the purchaser well.

    On to No Cowboys and found a few businesses but Buyers Choice was a shining 95-100%.

    My experience of Buyers Choice is that they are very very good at what they do. Great communications, timely (even when presented with a tight time frame before and auction. The feedback I got from the vendor was they were polite and respectful and the report I received was comprehensive.

    I did not end purchasing that property but have asked them to do another report on another property.

    I will let you know if they are consistently great in a few days.

    "My home was built in the 1970\'s and was looking a bit tired before I spent my money on giving the property an interior refresh I wanted to be sure there were no costly maintenance or structural issues that should have been a priority.

    The peace of mind I got from my A Buyer\'s Choice Home Inspection was well worth getting it done. "
