    I whole heartedly believe in what Opes provide

    The thing about Opes Partners is that they really are your 'partners' and truly want to help everyone work towards the best possible outcome regardless of situation. As first time investors we, like so many others, were simply astounded by the information, support, team of people and affiliated companies that Opes provide. They put your mind at ease and help guide you through the 10 year plan and process making it exciting and unbelievably easy for what seems a huge step the first time. Unfortunately for us, we were flying high on equity and the low interest rates (early 2022) when we decided to jump on board but did not make some important decisions when required to reduce our debt levels or spending when the economy ran into some issues (late 2022 to 2023). Despite the bank declining the rest of our mortgage 12 months after providing the deposit and the fact we were contractually obligated to complete our purchase, Dennis (our property partner) & Andrew ( Managing Partner) were very understanding of our situation and quick to jump to our aid....once again working as a partnership between us, Opes, the developer, brokers, lawyers and accountants to ensure the best possible outcome for all involved. Although a bitter sweet moment for us at the time, we will forever be indebted to Opes for the way were were treated and helped out of a potentially dire situation. I whole heartedly believe in what Opes provide and once the market recovers, and with our lessons learned, we will touch base again to re-start our 10 year plan!

    No, I don't get kickbacks or work for them, just a very satisfied customer

    OPES was recommended to me by a trusted colleague during a discussion we had about property investing. I contacted OPES and have never looked back. OPES provided a seamless, experience based on the latest and legacy economic and property sales data, their in-house economist Ed does deep dives into property statistics in all the regions and much like Tony Alexander has an enormous grasp on what is going on in the market. Andrew, after looking at our situation and financial position and goals provided a tailored package for my wife and I. The whole experience was excellent as OPES only deals with top-quality established developers as well. Our developer was Neilston Homes who again I cannot fault building two beautiful modern townhouses for us to purchase. I have no hesitation, and would in fact encourage people who are looking at property investment to deal with OPES, I really can't speak highly enough of them. Their administration and communication are outstanding and we were kept totally informed and guided through every step from start to finish.

    They basically hold your hands to guide you through the process of building your wealth

    It was a great experience working with Opes from top to bottom. The knowledge of the team makes investing in property so smooth and stress free. They always promptly answer your questions and concerns. They basically hold your hands to guide you through the process of building your wealth. For example, Maxine calmly guided us through this process and referred articles and links for us to read to gain informative knowledge. This was helpful when we don’t know a lot of investment. Secondly, a big thank you to Andrew and Ed where I suggested a podcast topic to clear my queries. They humbly thanked me for the suggestion and then within a short time, they presented this topic with relevant information from professionals. It was much appreciated to be heard and act on when you know that they had so much going on with their tours and schedules. I do wonder do they actually sleep🤣. Their sense of humour makes it so much fun to learn about investment. Thank you for assisting kiwis for investing. This is a fantastic platform to take about investing when it is not a commonly talked about. Another big thank you to Jason Bruce our mortgage broker who has active communication skills at the same time makes you comfortable. Nothing is a trouble for him and he always make sure he provides the best information for you without rushing you. The recap from each session with him was very informative. Thank you for the good work and I will definitely recommend others to you.

    Fantastic Experience and top class advice.

    Every touch point at Opes was excellent. They provided First Class advice and communication. I would gladly recommend Opes to all my friends family and work colleagues. My husband and I were able to purchase two townhouses after thinking we could only buy one. I was impressed that Opes have their own in-house economist Ed, they present simple and easy-to-understand information by way of bi-weekly webinars, and Andrew and his team including Candice, and Mickey are both authentic and down to earth, and went the extra mile to hold our hand all the way through the journey of thinking, feeling, looking, planning, financing, purchasing and future goals. Also, both properties increased significantly in value between signing contracts and settlement 4 months later. Opes take the stress-free approach

    Derry give us all of the answers that we were looking for

    After sitting on the fence for the past 5 yrs, eventually listening to Wealth Plan and meeting Derry at Opes Partners give us all of the answers that we were looking for. We've always had these inner questions that have stopped us from making the leap these past few years. Derry made the process very easy for us to understand, including the team around him - which has been very smooth and a quick journey. Feels great to have finally purchased our 1st rental property and to have a plan/goals for our future. Hopefully this is the 1st of many! Craig & Suzanne

    I know once we are ready for our next investment property (once interest rates don't make us cringe!) we will definitely be coming back to you guys.

    I would like to say a huge and profound thank you for all your help throughout this process. We have both been really impressed with Opes - not just the quality of your own work, but also the level of service and help we got from the professionals you recommended. When we bought our first house in 2020 the process was nowhere near as smooth, and this time I think I spent about half an hour thinking ", that went without a hitch!"  I especially liked the updates portal and the meeting where we went through the settlement process, plus the helpful guide document that was provided. I have actually recommended Opes to a few of my friends, and I know once we are ready for our next investment property (once interest rates don't make us cringe!) we will definitely be coming back to you guys.

    Both in our early 60s and wanted to have another investment strategy

    We have just settled on a new build investment property. We want to highly recommend Toby for his help navigating us through this. We are both in our early 60s and wanted to have another investment strategy for when we retire. We were very happy with how Toby understood our particular situation and worked us through the correct investment for us tailored to our goals and needs. This will form part of our retirement strategy after 10 years. Through the due diligence stage and all the negative news, high interest rates etc at the moment it would have been easy to change our mind and not do anything. But Toby was great to listen, understand and give us answers that made us feel confident to keep moving forward. Opes information, tools, knowledge, and research really helped us make the final decision. Thanks again.

We have recently worked with Stevie from the Christchurch office to purchase our first investment property and we couldn't thank her enough for the tailored advice we were given, the Opes staff are very friendly, kind, and professional. We will definitely be working with Opes in the future. Thanks again!

    The process was just so much clearer

    My wife and I were extremely satisfied with the services provided by Opes. They made everything extremely easy and stress-free. Jason Bruce (and his associates) were awesome to work with. He was available at the drop of a hat and was more than happy to answer questions and follow up on any concerns we had. He always made sure we were comfortable during our time working with Opes and introduced us to many new connections that I believe will be long-lasting for many years to come. The outcome of working with Opes Partners was we made a plan for our investment journey and ended up purchasing our first investment property. Even though we could have done this ourselves, the process was just so much clearer with a lot of research presented to us to back our decision. It was great to work with Opes and we will definitely be using them again!

    Very happy with our experience with Opes Partners

    We've had a great experience with Toby and Carina who are friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable! They have supported us so well through every stage of our journey and were always happy to share both their professional and personal experiences and answer any questions we had. Communication is very well refined and structured with emails, zoom calls, and prompts to watch youtube and podcast links so we always knew what to expect during every stage of purchasing our first investment property which made it a smooth and easy process Highly recommend the Opes team!

    The Opes structure was really helpful to go through as a couple

    We have worked with Derry as our Opes property partner. He has been easy to talk to and we felt we could ask any question. He also has a video to elaborate on anything we asked. He guided us methodically to the point of confidently buying an investment property. The Opes structure was really helpful to go through as a couple. I can honestly say we had zero arguments despite going into it thinking it would be stressful and difficult. Everything was made clear to us both and we were on the same page the entire way. We would definitely recommend Opes and Derry.

    One of the best financial podcasts I've found in NZ to date

    Have just discovered their podcast & it is one of the best financial podcasts I've found in NZ to date. They have daily discussions about relevant property investment issues/topics & government policies-- plus Mailbox sessions with lots of detailed answers & examples. There are over 600 episodes available, and they cover a lot! Highly recommend for anyone looking to learn more about property investment in NZ.

    I can honestly say I would never have done this - or had the expertise to navigate this on my own

    I'd like to acknowledge the expertise and professionalism of Opes and let anyone else out there considering these guys to give them a go. Don't believe me, you have nothing to lose - make contact.  It's been a thoroughly professional data driven journey with highly knowledgeable and experienced people (thank you Toby) who have made themselves and their extensive suite of resources available at every turn. In a matter of weeks since first contact, I have a property under contract and I can honestly say I would never have done this - or had the expertise to navigate this on my own. Congrats to the team at Opes and thanks so much for the support to do this. I'm looking forward to doing the next one in 3 years.

    Thanks so much for all the help with our first investment property - you and Opes made a process that seemed very daunting, so much simpler and doable. We are looking forward to settling our second investment property in Jan/Feb, and we are already talking about a 3rd investment property in the coming year.

    We felt Opes were the right fit for us

    After listening to podcasts and doing some research we felt Opes were the right fit for us to discuss our financial position, and future investments which have proven valuable. We are living and working in the UK so a few added challenges. Our Financial Advisor Toby Pascoe was easy to work with and understood our previous investments having both spent time in Southland. Happy to report we have made progress and the brief has been completed with an exciting opportunity ahead for us.

    They do not pressure you to make any purchases

    Our experience with Opes was fantastic. Kathy Faulkner was our property partner. We found her to be very informative and helpful. They do not pressure you to make any purchases. They assess your financial situation and based on your goals, provide recommendations. This is backed up with great detail, including clear assumptions and expected cash flows. You are then allowed to make an informed decision in peace. They do really mean it when it's said they are there to help.

    I have no hesitation in dealing with this superb team again

    The staff we dealt with especially Stevie were awesome. At no stage whatsoever did we feel any pressure to go ahead with anything, they made it a fun experience, they were all full of knowledge answering all questions, and there were follow-up phone calls and emails. All the staff we dealt with were extremely professional, and at times entertaining. Thank you Opes for helping us out, I have no hesitation in dealing with this superb team again. Highly recommended 👌

    Amy talked me through the entire process

    Many thanks to Amy Po-Ching from Opes for helping me navigate my way through buying my 1st rental. Amy was fantastic, and always went the extra mile. She made herself readily available to answer my numerous questions, and talked me through the entire process, practically holding my hand ( when necessary 🙂 ). Amy was considered and very thoughtful in her approach, finding out what my needs from an investment are. I thoroughly appreciate everything Amy and Opes Partners did to help me through the process and recommend them 100%.

    We have had an excellent and enjoyable experience with the team at Opes. They helped provide us with the knowledge, process steps, and nudges in the right direction as we started our investment journey. Toby, Carina, and Michelle were great to work with. Their professionalism and helpful approach to information and taking the time to explain the process were hugely appreciated. We would highly recommend working with the Team at Opes if you are wanting to start an investment journey, as well as listening to Ed and Andrew's daily podcasts for great tips and advice.

    This was (and still is 😊) a daunting process for us but you have guided us every step of the way. We are incredibly grateful for the help you have given us as we move into this next phase of our lives. I'm not sure how many others there are in the market doing what you do but I can't imagine that they bring the same level of professionalism in packaging the whole experience up with a knowledge base, a clear and well-documented process and guidance from start to finish. We will continue to sing your praise to anyone that we come across who is looking to buy an investment property. You guys are the best.

    We wanted to say thank you for all your guidance and advice in the purchasing of our 1st Investment Property.

    While it has been a steep learning curve and a bit of a whirl-wind adventure (to say the least), we couldn’t be happier with your step-by-step guidance and advice along with all of the other help along the way, i.e. insurance, property manager, etc. We definitely could not have done it without you. We feel very grateful for being placed into your expert hands and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.

    Have listened to the Opes podcasts for years and decided to use them to help get into investment properties. Our Opes property partner, Derry Brown, was able to listen to our needs and formulate a plan tailored exactly for us. Derry and his team then made the selection, financing and settlement of a couple of New Builds seamless by guiding us and answering any questions or concerns along the way. Opes and specifically Derry & Olivia, made what could have been a scary dive into investing for our retirement , a hassle free journey. Thanks!
