It has been such an easy process to deal with Kane. He takes the stress away, you are only dealing with one person and he is honest and up front. You know exactly where you stand with Kane. He explained things in terms we could understand.
We would highly recommend Kane Lawson.
Thanks for allowing us to be able to move on.
Thanks again Kane.
Abbey, Dave and Lachie.

If you’re considering selling your home as an “as is where is” property then we would highly recommend seriously considering talking to Kane Lawson owner of My New Start. We sold our as is where is property to Kane and he was tremendous to deal with. Kane is very knowledgeable in all aspects and is open and honest in his dealings. Kane was able to be realistic with us about repair strategies and the undertaking of what is involved if you were considering going ahead with carrying out repairs. Kane was very fair, reasonable, as well as accommodating around working in with us on a suitable settlement date that worked for us. He truely was refreshing and straight up to deal with during the entire process and explained things clearly (no smokescreens). Kane couldn’t have been more helpful and understanding, after having already gone through a very stressful period of time of owning an earthquake damaged property. Our sincerest thanks to you Kane for everything and for your integrity in which you carried out this transaction.

Kane went above and beyond for us when we sold our as is, where is home. We contacted him on a Friday evening, he emailed back within an hour, we then set a viewing appointment for Sunday. He presented us with an offer on the day, which was the price we wanted. Kane handled all the details of the transaction with extreme professionalism. Kane also provided a long settlement period to ensure we had time to get our affairs in order before looking at purchasing another house. As it transpired, we found a house within days, not only was the settlement accelerated to 3 weeks, he also met and liaised closely with the Real Estate agent to ensure the best chance of purchase for us given that our new house, had multiple offers on it, we were successful. I can’t say enough how truly pleased we were with the experience. Fast sale, faster settlement along with all the additional help and support. Thank you Kane, 5 stars!

A few months ago I made contact with Kane after hearing his advert on the radio about buying “as is where is houses” etc.

My husband and I had a block of flats which were in need of a great deal of work and were not in the usual state that you would hope to achieve when putting a property to market. I contacted him without much expectation of a reasonable outcome.

Kane met us on site with his business partner on Waitangi day. They had done quite a lot of homework on the property before they got there. We walked around the site and too my surprise they were not scared off. We had some preemptive chats outside the property then they followed us home and discussed it further over a cup of tea. They presented us an offer which we did not accept because we felt it was too low. They had a discussion outside then came back with a revised offer with a some compromises and a later settlement date. Their offer was not what we might have hoped for on the open market with a tidied up property but it was a very fair and transparent offer with compromises on both sides and no strings attached.

The sale has now been completed. Kane was been very straight forward and honest to deal with, he has kept us informed every step of the way. He has always answered my phone calls and emails promptly and advised be of any changes to expected process.


When I contacted Kane to be honest I was expecting a snake oil salesman. What we found however was a fair and reasonable hard working young man of integrity who was true to his word, honest and transparent in his dealing with us. He was able to give us our desired outcome with a minimum of fuss and bother for us and a fair deal for both parties.


We really appreciate your help Kane and wish you every success with your business and future venture.

Thank you
