  • Barry Trass

    “Homeworld have been constructing homes and undertaking land development in the Northland region for 40 years. From day one we have used Reyburn & Bryant for all our planning and survey work from defining boundary pegs to major subdivision development. We have found them to be extremely competitive, efficient and a very professional company to deal with in all respects. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wishing to undertake survey work of any kind”

  • Ken Couper – Southend Farms

    “Richard and his team of surveyors provided faultless project management and construction supervision throughout the construction of my latest subdivision at Rhu Arden Road, Waipu. The project ran seamlessly through to completion and Richard’s easy-going personality meant that communication throughout the process was top-notch.”

  • Mel Currin - Maunu

    “Having been involved in a number of small to medium subdivisions in the Whangarei area, I have used the services of Reyburn and Bryant each and every time. As a team they are innovative, professional and approachable, completing jobs both on time and within estimated costs. I have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective developers and I will continue to use their services in both current and future land subdivision.”
