What a great choice we made when we decided to choose a lady called Karen Phillips to act as our Immigration Advisor for a Parent Visa. She guided us through the whole process with such understanding, care, and knowledge which was exactly what we had hoped for being 'OLDIES' looking to emigrate at this time of life. Thank you Karen. (E & D, UK June 2016

Karen, thanks you so much for your assistance and reassurance during our visa application process. You holding our hand along the way has made the whole experience less stressful and we have been kept well informed. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your services to anyone seeking to gain a visa to go to New Zealand. KS UK to Northland May 2016

Karen helped me every step of the way with my visa. She is easy to talk to, even with some of my more sensitive issues which arose. I know that it wasn't just my visa she was working on it was our visa, her empathy and positive attitude was reassuring and great. Thanks Karen. VB UK

Karen has been fantastic throughout the entirety of our visa application. The process of applying and preparing for a move to the other side of the world can be both an exciting and daunting prospect. However, the personable service that Karen provided made both my partner and I feel completely confident that all facets of the application were completed efficiently with meticulous detail by a professional with excellent experience and understanding. We are both grateful for the service provided and would recommend to anyone embarking on a similar journey. J & N, UK

Having started on our own with work visa applications and hitting a stumbling block, we discovered Karen and are eternally grateful that we did. She has been amazing through the whole process of getting our work visa applications back on track and our subsequent residency application. Having answers to my multitude of questions and giving us fantastic advice at every step of the process. She also made me feel confident about everything that was happening, and calmed my panic during the stressful moments. I would, and have, highly recommended Karen to anyone who is looking for an immigration adviser. We are so grateful for everything she has done for us. Thank you so much Karen, A&J
