Testimonials

We are more than happy to recommend Courtney and Wise to anyone wanting the best finish possible when having their home or building painted. 

The team was extremely proficient in their work, punctual, pleasant every day and did exactly what was agreed to between Michael as supervisor and myself. They are a young, up to date team with lot of years of practice behind them and their recommendations for an appropriate finish reflect that. We gave them the task of preparing and finishing most of a 1960’s home with several difficult surfaces and the finished product is more than pleasing.

Jenny Templeman

Testimonials

I am very pleased with the work, and really appreciate all your patience with the colours and the additional handyman advice. Please thank Jaime, Alvaro and Robbie for their professionalism. A couple of neighbours and even my plumber have commented on their work and respect they showed while here. It’s fantastic, far exceeding my expectations.

Kristina Hackett

Testimonials

Having the interior of the house painted is something I dread. However from the comprehensive quote you submitted to the attention of every detail and the high standard of workmanship, the work proceeded without a hitch.

Jamie and Alvaro are such pleasant men to have working in the home and their standard of workmanship is first class. I have no hesitation in recommending Courtney & Wise to anyone thinking of painting.

Liz Shaw

Testimonials

We are writing to express our thanks to you and yPortfolio for the work you did on our inner-city terrace late last year. We couldn’t fault the quality, workmanship or reliability of the team of painters who repainted the interior and exterior of our property, delivering a result that was second to none. We would happily recommend your company to others and would be happy to provide verbal references to this effect, if required. We wish you all the best for the future.
