    "After reading the other (negative) reviews, my partner and I were hesitant to sign with David Reid North Shore.
    Fortunately we did sign with them, as they are an absolutely WORLD-CLASS building company.

    Our story:
    Our original building company went into liquidation 12 months after signing, leaving us with a slab, exposed walls, and a partially completed roof.

    David Reid North Shore picked up the build and completed it to perfection - on budget, and ahead of time.

    Arie is an exceptional General Manager.

    Prior to signing our contract, he spent hours making sure that every detail was considered.

    He stayed in regular (often daily) contact with us throughout the build, keeping us in the loop the whole time.

    The main builder assigned to our job (Austin) was a perfectionist, and a bloody nice guy.

    He seemed to get through more work in the first few weeks, than the entire time our previous builder was on site.

    Andy (our Project Manager) was also excellent - he ensured that all the subcontractors were on a tight leash throughout the build.

    On completion Arie and Andy walked us through the final inspection, and picked out imperfections that we wouldn\'t have even noticed.

    Things like a few cm of silicone, missing from the waterfall edges in the kitchen (at floor level).

    All points picked up during the final inspection were quickly fixed

    We feel that we\'ve had the pleasure and misfortune of dealing with the best and worst when it comes to builders.

    David Reid North Shore are BY FAR the best.

    We would absolutely recommend David Reid North Shore to anyone thinking of building.

    If you\'re hesitant about signing, I\'d be more than happy to provide a reference and show you how our place turned out

    "We had the misfortune to build with David Reid Albany. Has to have been the worst experience of our lives. Difficult to deal with from the moment we signed the contract. Got upteen things wrong and were far from apologetic. The price skyrocketed despite initial promises that they always stayed close to budget. I\'ve since heard that this is their standard practice. Steer away from these guys."
