The speakers at Property School were awesome and motivating with great knowledge of property - real people giving real examples. - Anon, April 2019
What I liked most about Property School was learning about real life deals and not just theory, and the chance to hear from very successful investors. - Anon, June 2018
What I enjoyed most about Property School was the great willingness of speakers to let us interact, energy of speakers is massive! Planning strategy going forward, motivation and what mindset/approach is required to do subdivision were the highlights for me. - Anon, May 2018
All the speakers are very professional for their topic. They are all very knowledgeable. - Anon - December 2017
The best things about attending Property School were learning how to do the numbers to get the most out of a property, when to ask for advice, and the different strategies you can look for when assessing a property. - Anon - June 2017

We are looking forward to working with GRA and giving our financial affairs the due diligence they deserve. It was such a pleasure meeting with GRA on Tuesday. Thankyou for spending so much time with us. We appreciated and respected the advice that you gave to us and the integrity with which it was delivered. Many thanks and kind regards - AR - July 2017
The real life examples, guest speakers and the flow of the course - topics of each module, were highlights for me. - Ashlee W, October 2018
Although I have not read the book cover to cover as of yet, Matt’s new book is absolute ‘top shelf’ material which without hesitation I would arguably put ahead of a few other well known authors that I have held in high regard for many years due to the fact of not finding anyone to surpass them – now I have. The book shows thorough research on a range of topics with clear concise kiwi examples. The books title does not do it justice – heres hoping a ‘property 201’ book is in the pipeline… - Bernard - October 2015
GRA are a one stop shop for property investment resources. Really liked the examples and case studies in Property School - adds a lot of credibility. - Brenda Muller, June 2019
Totally enjoyed all this Property School course, particularly leaning what to look out for in properties, and the amount of people we can use to help move forward. Look forward to any other courses that come about. - Brent, October 2018
Hi Matt, I have just attended the property school and just want to say it was really a worthwhile experience doing it especially for me who is planning to start as an investor (or trader). Thanks again for sharing your invaluable knowledge. P.S. Have also told my friends/colleagues, who are also interested on property, to attend the next property seminar. Best regards, - Brian
Hi Matthew, Just like to thank you for a Great day on Sunday at at the Property Leaders event....certainly worth the trip up from Wellington. We are always impressed with GRA's ability to help their clients.. a rarity among many businesses. Kindest regards, Brian and Janet Adams - Brian and Janet Adams, May 2018
Hi Salesh, Great presentation yesterday you should do it more often. Great day yesterday I feel like going out and buying 5 more houses - Brigid - November 2017
It is my pleasure to write a testimonial with regards to the nomination of the professional trustee team at Gilligan Rowe and Associates, as a finalist for New Zealand Corporate Trustee of the year. They have acted as a professional trustee for my trust for many year now. I have been thoroughly impressed by their level of knowledge, professionalism, honesty and integrity in all my dealings with them. In addition, through their regular client seminars that I have attended, I have been very impress by the thoughtful critiques of cases and changes in the direction of trust law, and their possible impact on me. I can recommend them without hesitation. Sincerely - BV
Thanks again for creating a resolution for my ACC levies situation, which quite frankly blindsided us. Without your expertise & nous, we would have been in a very uncomfortable position. I was very impressed by speed that your were able to resolve our challenge for us. Not surprisingly, my family & I would not hesitate in recommending your or the team at GRA for financial & taxation strategies - C Patterson
Hello Matthew, I am just wishing you the best of success with your excellent book Property 101. It is very rare that I come across a book on real estate that is in the league of other financial securties writer's. Thank you for taking the time and more importantly writing about real estate in a easy to read manner. I am still learning after 30 years in real estate. I am also a true contrarian like yourself and have learned this art from my favourite contrarian, Jim Rodgers (Former Quantum Fund). I have been preaching this to our Investor net work and corporate clients for some time, but most find it very hard to-do. Thanks again! Kind Regards, - Chris Kerr - The New Kids On The Block Pty Limited - October 2015
I got a lot out of Property School, the main things being the context of the process, i.e. choosing a vision, plan & how to execute; easy to implement value adds like S & P Clauses and Life online; and great case studies that bring the teaching to life. I really enjoyed being challenged to think about which strategy, and all the presenters were very helpful and informative. I will be recommending Property School to others. Thank you! - Chuck - June 2017
The volume of detailed information we were given was awesome. More options than I ever imagined. I enjoyed every session - Colleen E - December 2017
The main things I got out of Property School were knowledge on subdivision, feedback on current market, tips on areas and types of properties to buy. I really enjoyed learning from the examples of the presenters own experience. - Craig H - October 2015
