As a compassionate listener, Yvonne stands by you, her clients –from the first meeting, throughout the application process, but more importantly, during times of need when families and businesses are trying to cope with loss of income, the emotional toll of traumatic, illness or the loss of a loved one.

Yvonne cuts through the insurance waffle and jargon to explain all insurance policies in plain, down-to-earth language. She’s also independent and objective, having developed strong relationships with every major New Zealand insurer to make sure you get the right cover, that is right for your circumstances.
