“I am delighted to provide a glowing recommendation for the Apex Advice Group, specifically highlighting the exceptional support we have received from Ivandee, who also served as our mortgage broker during our first home purchase in New Zealand.
My husband and I were introduced to this remarkable team by our Immigration Agency shortly after our arrival in New Zealand. As newcomers to the country, we were in need of guidance and assistance, and Ivandee has been an absolute godsend throughout our journey. From the very outset, Ivandee has made our transition into a new country remarkably smooth. Even during our stay in Managed Isolation and Quarantine (MIQ), we were touched by the thoughtful gesture of a generous care package and the consistent, weekly check-ins on our health and wellbeing. Ivandee's unwavering commitment to our well-being has been a source of immense comfort. We are genuinely looking forward to continuing our partnership with Ivandee and her outstanding team as we work towards turning our financial dreams into a reality.
Thank you, Ivandee, for everything you have done for us thus far. Your expertise, kindness, and dedication have made a world of difference in our lives.”.
Justine & Brett,
“Ivandee Fitchet at Apex Advice was referred to us my Network Migration when we first left South Africa in 2021, and has been our advisor along several difficult paths along this time.
From MIQ days she made us feel welcome and at ease with her sage advice and attention to detail. There are so many differences when you first arrive from abroad and Ivandee was able to answer all our questions and offer local New Zealand advice for the best options for hour family.
She helped us with health insurance, life insurance and financial support and advice on different ways forward. When we received residency she helped us in a very difficult market to constantly assess and reassess our lending capacity and strategies . In the end she managed to secure us with a low, fixed interest rate that gave us a huge advantage in the difficult market.
She is always available for brainstorming and as a sounding board for different ideas. We can highly recommend her services and advice for local or transitioning families to New Zealand.”.
