"We recently moved into our new home, and wanted advice on what improvements we could do on our property. We found Nikki to be a fountain of knowledge and experience, and her advice was invaluable especially as we wanted to understand what we could do with our property first, rather than engage an architect/developer straight away. Nikki helped us work through some possible designs but also gave us advice on council and regulatory requirements as well as some high level estimates to help set our expectations on the improvements. We found Nikki great to work with and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to embark on their own building improvement."

"We recently purchased an investment property in Rose Bay. The property is very well situated with an outstanding view but was sadly in need of updating and renovation.
We were about to start the renovation work when we were lucky enough to be introduced to Nikki Quittner. Nikki suggested quite dramatic changes to our plans and I can only say that we are eternally grateful for her input. She has entirely transformed the unit and has maximised room, space and views. Nikki's enthusiasm, passion and energy is infectious and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her. Besides the plans and design produced by Nikki, she was also extremely helpful in dealing with strata and technical issues. Her advice proved invaluable. Thank you Nikki!"
- Trevor | Buyer | Rose Bay
"Nikki is an Architect with a difference. She provides cost effective architectural advice to explore a property’s potential before entering into a huge financial commitment of the purchase. Nikki is knowledgeable, thorough, articulate, passionate and engaging. It is an absolute pleasure to refer Test Before You Invest to my Clients. They provide a complementary extension of my service offering and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you!"
- Katherine | Buyers Agent | Sydney
"The prospect of renovating our old terrace was something that gave us a great deal of consternation. Both being artists, we were totally out of our depth. But then, along came Nikki and made the entire process a complete pleasure. She’s one of these rare people who has both artistic ability and the knack of being able to communicate complex concepts in everyday language. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
- Simon | Home Owner | Newtown
"We embarked on this process hoping to gain more confidence before purchasing our property. Not only did they give us this confidence that what we wanted to do could be achieved, but Test Before You Invest took it that step further, coming up with a solution added so much value, for an even cheaper construction. We couldn't be happier. "
- Justine | Buyer | Frenchs Forest
