We have a great relationship with both Richard Diver and Adele Childs, and their constant communication and assistance throughout the build process has been an immense help!

Upon signing up for the lease of 131 Victoria Street in mid-2012, Saunders & Co Lawyers have been in a close business relationship with Countrywide Property Group. The parties hit it off from the start with a shared vision, and both adopting a pragmatic and no-fuss approach to getting on with the job at hand. Countrywide kept us regularly informed of progress on the build, and we had genuine opportunities for input into the design and process, in conjunction with our own design and build at Element 17.

Countrywide Property Group have delivered us a quality product, ensuring comfort, safety and design aesthetic have been kept paramount. Working with Richard and Adele on 131 has been a pleasure and we continue to enjoy their down to earth and professional approach. We feel well looked after.

There is a lot that goes into developing a restaurant and bar, especially when the building is under construction and even more so when you are creating two restaurants. Richard and Adele have made the journey from plans to opening night incredibly easy and I couldn’t be happier with the space and the support.

I can’t speak highly enough of Countrywide, they go out of their way to help me succeed in my business, they are not just collecting rent, they are helping me build my business.

Countrywide Property have been fantastic to deal with. We lease a premise on Victoria Street, our point of contact is Adele. I have no problems recommending as we feel like the group understand we are a business, not just a ‘rent payment’. Adele understands businesses face issues and have unique needs, with this, they appreciate, listen and act on our needs, problems and requests.

We feel all matters, big or small are heard and dealt with promptly. We feel we have their support as a tenant.

It’s described as Vibrant Victoria; it’s not like coming in to an office to work each day; it’s more like being part of an extended community!

Richard and Adele are often out and about on Victoria Street, introducing people to each other, they always have a smile on their face and time to talk. Any issues have always been resolved in a very timely manner and communication is fast and efficient.

We have been part of this community for a few years now and are very happy to be here. Thanks Richard and the team!

We are grateful that we were given the opportunity to re-establish our restaurant in the post-earthquake Carlton Butchery redevelopment and thank Richard Diver and Adele Childs of Countrywide Property Group for their initiative and ongoing support.

I have been a tenant of Countrywide for over three years initially with Go Media and again tenanted a second office space with JetMax Media at 179/181 Victoria Street, Christchurch.
In that time, I have found them to be a great landlord with a professional and balanced approach to managing the asset/building and also tenants during some very testing post-earthquake times.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Countrywide as a landlord of choice.

Our tenancy is in an upgraded & refurbished pre-earthquake building in Victoria Street. Countrywide Property Group offered us a lease on fair market condition and were straightforward and uncomplicated to deal with. The premises were completed and handed over to us on time and in the condition agreed to and are of a very high standard of detail and finish. I am happy to offer our recommendations to any prospective tenants of buildings under the Countrywide banner.
