Testimonials

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your staff at Nautica, for the outstanding service you and your team have given us over the past year. Your customer service and attention to detail have been exemplary.

As we have never built a new home, we were somewhat apprehensive about the process, but from the onset everything has run smoothly and efficiently, leaving us no room for concern.

You have surrounded yourself with a wonderful team of people who obviously share your vision, high standards, and attention to detail, you should be proud of them!

Ana and Carl

We are absolutely delighted with the final result and feel positively proud to live in what we think is a beautiful home. If you need any testimonials as to the quality of your company’s work, or need to show anybody through our home as a guide to what you do – please do not hesitate to make contact with us.

I was impressed and totally satisfied with the costing and quality of work performed by Nautica personnel as well as it’s sub-contractors, in addition I found the people of Nautica to be honest, open and trustworthy in our dealings and at no time was I subjected to unpleasant surprises. During this project keeping to agreed time-scales without compromising quality was of importance to Nautica and even when Force Majure delays were experienced Nautica made every attempt to recover.

Based on my experience I have no hesitation in recommending Nautica as prime contractor for any prospective home building project

I am writing to congratulate you on your recent success in the Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition. Your commitment to quality is exactly where we want this sector to be. It is heartening to see this commitment to quality being recognized by your peers.

Tony in particular was very good at making cost saving suggestions, and slight alterations to the architect’s plans where the expense was not warranted, or did not add value to the finished product. Building commenced on the 23 April 2001 and was scheduled for completion on the 5 October 2001.

We accepted Tony’s advice as the expert, and used his contacts for all subcontractors and suppliers, knowing that Tony only dealt with the very best people in the business. The Nautica team and sub-contractors maintained a tidy site during construction.

Nothing was too much trouble for Tony and his on site team. We were given a detailed schedule at the start of the project showing all progress steps along the way, down to a hand over date. We were delighted to be able to move into the house one week ahead of schedule.

Any problems or changes, both parties were able to discuss freely with Tony and his team. As the house was being completed, Nautica continued to make suggestions and provide solutions.

All in all we have been in our house of just under 6 months. We are delighted with the house; it is living up to our expectations. The workmanship in all areas is the best. Any minor items requiring attention from Nautica have been promptly and professionally handled.

In summary, this was a first time experience for us, and should we decide to build another house our first call would be to Nautica.

The Carters team would like to offer their congratulations to Nautica on being recognized as one of New Zealand’s leading building companies at the recent Registered Master Builders Federation 2006 Local Awards Ceremony for the House of the Year.

We are thrilled to see your name in lights and to be selected as a finalist in no easy task. To have come through with a win for this category is real credit to you and your team. Congratulations!

Todd Falgate
Carters – Auckland Sales Manager

Tony, we congratulate you on the “Nautica culture” which has over the years created a perception of uncomprising quality throughout not only your crew, but the entire family of dedicated and loyal subbies, all of whom were a joy to work with.

Dave

Just wanted to say how much I admire your business and service ethic. It is outstanding. Any time you need a customer referral don’t hesitate to ask us.

We still love the house and it has been virtually faultless even after a number of years.

You deserve every success in business!

We saw a Nautica build in the Goodlands Estate in Dairy Flat and we were really impressed with the finish and the flow. I told my wife Denise that if we moved to a plot of land we would build with Nautica and she agreed based on the Goodlands property. Before committing with Nautica I checked with a client who had recently built with Nautica and he had done some reference checks and everyone he had spoken to said they were great to deal with.

Would definitely use them again in a heartbeat – would not need to think about this one. I don’t think I would do anything differently… the end product we are delighted with and the journey to completion was relatively stress free.

John Proctor

We have been so impressed with Nautica and all the team. From yourself, to our Project Manager Glenn and then Paul the builder and also his team. They have all been great to work with and nothing has been an issue for any of them.

As you know we went through a lot to even get our house started. It was a marathon 4 year project, but once Nautica got involved it was plain sailing. As I am so busy at work and with the kids, it was great having you and Glenn there to make sure it just flowed. It was also great to have Trinity to keep everything on track for us and for you.

Thank you so much for helping us to realise our dream. Now that the house is finished I am finding it very tough to go to work as it is such a relaxing and homely home.

Once again, thank you for helping build our dream home.

From the beginning Tony’s vision and the entire team’s dedication and passion for their brand is what convinced us to build our dream home with Nautica. The due diligence that the team showed through each element and every phase of the journey made this a partnership that we’re incredibly proud of, and thoroughly recommend to anyone.

They say building a house is one of the most stressful things that you can undertake, we did it from 8000km’s away in Singapore, not only did we have no issues, but the Project came in 4 weeks ahead of schedule, with no cost overruns and we now enjoy a beautiful home that we couldn’t be happier with.

The Nautica team operate with professionalism and integrity. Their attention to detail, wonderful advice and desire to create a beautiful home for their client is what sets them apart.

Thank you Nautica!

Grant and Michelle McBeath
