Testimonials

Over the years, Kris and the team from MyHome Renovations has worked for numerous Auckland homeowners guiding them through the often over-whelming process of designing, consenting and building their renovation project.

Here is what a few of them have said about their experience of working with us.  You can also take a look at the reviews we have received on Google and our Facebook page.

Ian & Jodie Gallagher

"We have a 1920's bungalow and were torn on whether to “Love it or List it”. MyHome Renovations were recommended to us so we got in touch, and we are super glad we did!  After talking to Kris initially, and dealing with their designer, we were confident in our choice of experts.  We had a tight budget, needed to remain in the house during the renovation and wanted to use a friend to do our kitchen.  None of these were a problem with MyHome.  Because we both work full time, the ultimate driver for us was to find a company that could ‘do it all’ and MyHome certainly did that for us!

Every room in our house was touched in some way, apart from our family bathroom, but Kris and his team enabled us to remain in the property while the renovation happened around us.

We pretty much stuck to the fixed price quote (with the exception of a few unforeseen costs due to the age of the house, and our own variations along the way), and it was right on time (which considering it was 2020/2021 is rather impressive!).  The app MyHome uses was brilliant at keeping us informed as to when things were going to happen, and when key decisions needed to be made. We knew exactly where we were the whole way through.

We were really impressed with Jade, the Project Manager, Mike, our lead builder, and all the other builders and subcontractors MyHome use – there were certainly no concerns with having them in our home.

We would definitely recommend MyHome Renovations to friends and family (and anyone who will listen!) as they were a pleasure to deal with, and made what could’ve been a stressful process an easy one."

"We wanted certainty that the team (we selected) could deliver on time and on budget, and Kris and the team absolutely delivered to the plan. They provided the perfect balance of listening to the things we weren’t willing to compromise on and offering good suggestions on how we could do some things better.

They were incredibly respectful, and we really enjoyed seeing them every day. What’s funny is we almost miss them now they’re gone! We couldn’t be happier with the results.”

“I have found Kris to be extremely professional through a number of my personal renovation projects over the last few years. As a practicing Project Manager working in the commercial building sector I have high expectations of the critical front end of my projects, particularly in the pricing phase. I have found Kris to be transparent and clear at all times during this phase and performed at a level well beyond that typically seen in the residential sector. Most importantly I have found Kris to be honest, helpful and always reflecting a can-do attitude.”

Helen Waldron & Lianne McCarthy

“I want to say a huge thanks especially to Kris and Jade for your upmost professionalism and skill in the jobs that you do. We really appreciate how the process has been almost seamless and made so much easier by your attention to detail and knowledge. It is difficult to imagine managing the renovation ourselves. Big thanks to Jade for putting up with my incessant questions and requests, and keeping the steady stream of work on track.

Also a big thanks to the wider team, Barbara, the builders and contractors. I had said to you early on in the process how much we appreciated liaising with people who knew their trades not just sales people – although I now have an unhealthy opinion about taps! Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel secure that our money was being well spent.

We are loving the finished product. I can’t ever have imagined that it would look so good. The ideas and innovation have used the space well and the finish has been excellent. It has made the house the envy of friends. It is just a pleasure to live in. There is no one space that stands out it is all just fantastic and to a high quality. A huge thank you for everything.”

Mal Curtis & Sarah Hawk

“As expected, our renovation was long and fraught with unforeseen difficulties, which Kris and Barb handled adeptly, taking a lot of the pressure off us. Having weekly onsite meetings and one point of contact for everything meant that we felt we had control without the stress of organisation. I’d recommend Kris and Barb if you want quality work but don’t have the time to manage your own project.”

“I love your [project management] app what a great idea! It’s so helpful to see the renovation planned out day to day like that. I’ve got two other friends getting renovations done moaning about how they don’t know what is going on and can’t contact people and making call after call etc. I showed one your app – he was soooo jealous! “

“Kris and his team were very professional.  Real time collaboration on their online software meant less errors and re-work, seeing real time photos of the project’s progress as well.  I’m so proud to show our newly renovated house off to my family & friends. The finishing and workmanship by Mitch & Mike was outstanding.  Well done guys!  Even though I paid a bit more, the finishing was excellent and was worth every penny.  I want to use Kris and his team for any maintenance work because I do not want any others to spoil their finished work.  They tried very hard to keep to the deadline despite all the add-ons.  Our working relationship with Kris, Barbara and Project Manager Jade was totally professional and friendly.  I loved the service.”
