Testimonials

Matt Atkinson, Partner

 “I instructed Chris Boyd to provide expert valuation evidence in respect a piece of high value litigation in which the value of a large rural property was in issue.  Chris was required to assess the value of the land on two different dates that were many years in the past.  I found Chris to be extremely clear, thorough and logical.  He was easy to work with and met our requirements with regard to time frames.  Chris’s evidence was an essential part of our defence and made a major contribution to a very favourable outcome.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris for similar high value work in the future.”

“The Colliers International Rural Valuation team completed an irrigation report commissioned by our Corporate Agribusiness team. We provided an initial brief to Tim Crighton and his team delivered a quality report in a short time frame. We were impressed by the team’s understanding of our organisation’s needs and their knowledge of the irrigation issues and provided a report that exceeded our expectations.”
