“We recently completed a very complex purchase of our home. This involved building report issues, a number of conditions, two family trusts completing the purchase and, to add to it all, the Banks and other professionals were on summer holiday mode at the time. Eugene Raika calmly and competently stepped us through the complexities from checking our offer and initial contract all the way through to a successful settlement. We appreciated him setting out the key points in the process and his very prompt responses to queries. I’d not hesitate to recommend Eugene for any conveyancing matters.”
