Words of Appreciation
If only we had become aware of HOBANZ at the beginning of our “Leaky Home” journey, we would saved so much time, money and gained earlier peace of mind. Their professionalism and knowledge ensured that we obtained a full review of our home, which resulted in a substantial change to a total reclad to resolve the original building problems. This took 4 years to reach the mediation process, along with considerable expense by way of inspection reports and legal fees. All this would have been substantially reduced if we had the support of HOBANZ from the early stages of our claim. We cannot thank Roger and his team enough for their support, guidance and compassion during this stressful time in our lives.
We were all totally ignorant of our situation and where to start. Once we got HOBANZ on board, the situation was explained to us, as daunting as what it was!! From here, we were guided, supported and given crucial information every step of the way.They were instrumental in bringing on board the Project Manager, the Architect, the Builder and our day in Court, and were involved in every way, including dealing with the Council. Not only were we supported with the rebuild, they were also fundamental is assisting some of our owners in liaising with the banks, to raise the finance required. For some this saved them from having to sell their homes. The end result, just brilliant. I couldn’t thank the HOBANZ team enough.
Roger, it is impossible to put into words the appreciation of your efforts on our behalf these past years (we’ve lost count!). Your knowledge and experience along with the wisdom of years of such cases has kept us together! We know that it has taken many long hours outside of ‘work’ and appreciate how difficult that is to maintain. We will be forever grateful for you care and concern, your sense of humour in tough times and your ability to make the mountains seem possible to climb. Thank you for picking us up and gluing the pieces together, maintaining perspective and getting us to this point.
John, this has been an amazing, frustrating, worrying, stimulating, harrowing, fulfilling and relieving experience since we embarked upon this marathon in late 2006. We have all learned so much and have reason to be immensely grateful to you and your team. You have been supportive and encouraging right from the word go and none of us have any doubt whatsoever that we would have struggled and most likely failed without the experience you and Roger and your team brought to our table. The team you helped assemble for our Body Corp assistance & High Court case were just the right people in the right place with the right experience at the right time.
