"More than ever grateful for  the assistance and love coming into see Lyn at Te Whare Putea. She has helped me make the right decisions with my EQC, Home and contents claims. Without the assistance I would still be sitting at home with my claims in the filing cabinet. Lyn has built my confidence and shown  me I am able to make my own decisions. Love ya Lyn"

"I have dealt with Barbara and Lyn  in the Heartlands Centre on various occasions for the previous six months. They have both been very helpful and considerate, especially around my privacy. I have valued your opinions on various matters needed. We need more people like Lyn and Barbara"

"I rate Te Whare Putea a 10 for their service, however for Heartlands it would be great to have cold water available for those that sit and wait long periods to have water to take medication. The financial mentor went overboard to  help me understand and show me how to use the computer process for IRD etc; in Heartlands office. Thanks Lyn for your patience."
