From the moment we met with Priyaanka and started the journey of house sales, it was all simple steps, although a significant undertaking for us having never gone through this process for at least 44 years. Any questions were answered in a very clear and professional manner, nothing was ever a problem, any dates mentioned for certain things to happen were met. Priyaanka is an absolute delight as a person, the whole process was a pleasure and made simple by her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Priyaanka to act on their behalf.

Thank you to Priyaanka for her assistance, positivity & proactive approach. Really enjoyed the purchase process.

Priyaanka handled the sale and purchase of my house. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and a testament to the GQ brand. I have and will recommend her services to my colleagues and friends. Thanks again for your support.

Alice and Suzanne have a real strength in listening- they have always given me practical advice tailored to whatever my circumstances at the time may be. Sorting out the legal side of property transactions is a chore, but they seem to be able to make it pain-free every time. They will be my go-to wherever I might buy property in NZ.

Jacinta

We have been represented better than I could have ever imagined. Our needs were put first and we were treated as a friend rather than a number. Our opinions were valued and our doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Karen Wood went above and beyond and did everything she could do for a great outcome professionally in every aspect that we have dealt with her. Highly recommended.

Colleen & John

Priyaanka Khatri made the emotional roller coaster sale of my business so much easier by showing such compassion & understanding on a personal level with a professional knowledgeable manner when required. Such a caring happy lady. Thank you Priyaanka.

Robyn & John Sanders

GQ has prepared our legal work DA & DG Keene Family Trust, Naki Developments Ltd and Darcy Keene Earthmoving Ltd for many years now and in this time we have found them to be very professional and obliging. We feel very relaxed in their company and hope we can continue doing business with them for many years to come.

Darcy & Debbie Keene

I found [Priyaanka] an absolute pleasure to deal with. She made the whole process very straight forward - explaining each step as we went along. I trusted her judgement and found her answers to my questions easy to understand.

It was a pleasure working with Priyaanka. I particularly appreciated being able to get her advice at short notice when I was putting the offer in for a property - that was an exciting time! I also found the first home buyers guide that I downloaded from Govett Quilliam last year to be a good reference. I'd definitely recommend Priyaanka if I come across someone needing a lawyer for a house purchase.
