The Property Store
We have been operating our business for three years.
My wife Jane and I were running different services and products, all within the same industry, but under different names.
Last year we decided to bring it all together under one umbrella and employed Geek Free to build us a website for "The Property Store".
The team at Geek Free worked collaboratively with our ideas and produced a site which was completely aligned with our vision.
Communication was easy and open; and the team worked hard to create what we needed.
The Property Store brand has definitely been enhanced with our Geek Free website; more customers are finding us on the internet and our existing customers are using the site to gain more information and interact with us. Now we can inform clients with news via posts on the site, through the free newsletter and with current listings.
Our main business is Residential Property Management, so we are in contact with a lot of people looking for homes to rent, and for investors and owners wanting someone to manage their property - so an easy to use site was imperative. I really don't know how we got by without it.
Now we can upload current rentals as they become available and applicants can download a tenancy application form, both of which have proved an effective way for us to fill our owners properties as quickly as possible.
Geek Free has also enabled us to understand the background workings of the site so we can evaluate what people are looking at; a great tool for understanding
what is and isn't effective.
We highly recommend Geek Free to build your website, they know what they are doing and are good at it.

We had been thinking of building a website for some time, so when Toby Yorke came into our shop one day and asked if we had a website, and when the answer was no, he offered to build us one. We thought it was Christmas.
As we had no idea of what we wanted Toby was extremely helpful and patient with us, explaining as we went along. Toby and his team designed a website for us which is easy for us to manage.
His knowledge of Google and the internet was astounding.
Toby was available to help us whenever we needed him, and teaching old brains must have been a real challenge, but it was never a problem.
We had contact phone numbers and email to keep in touch, which Toby did regularly.
Our overall experience was one of pleasure and we would not hesitate to recommend Toby and his team for all the help they have given us.
Now that our website has been up and running for a couple of months, Toby still keeps in contact offering suggestions for us to be top on Google.

The very idea of rebuilding our website was quite daunting, especially as this was to include a complete rebranding and reflect a change of direction for our company.
As with anything this important to your business, it is critical to establish a relationship with someone who really understands and cares. Thank goodness we were introduced to Geek Free. Toby is a good listener and is not afraid to think outside the box. Following his free consultation, he provided a realistic and detailed proposal that was transparent and easy to follow.
His professional manner and knowledge are most refreshing and the service he provides is both extremely prompt and efficient.
Toby also assisted with such things as Domain registration, web hosting and other sophisticated services such as being able to log on and edit the site content which has proved invaluable.
The ongoing support and advise we have received from Toby since our site went live has been fantastic. Our website is everything we expected and more – as is the positive feedback from our clients.
I can highly recommend Toby (no surprise there)!!
Warkworth Natural Health Store
During the last two or more years I have been inundated with people who wanted to build a “Web Site” for Warkworth Natural Health Store, I have had people from all over NZ who have promised me the earth and that they could do this and offer that. There sincerity was matched by their honesty as most of them never made further contact after their initial so called “Sell-in” !!!!
Toby was different, he was low key, he told me what he could do and what he couldn’t, then he asked what I wanted and what I thought my Web Page should say and contain for the end user. He then went away and came back with more information and suggestions that related to my business.
I was impressed by his attitude, and professionalism and the effort he took too understand my business requirements. However before I gave him the business I did some checking around as I have friends in the I.T. industry who were local. I received many glowing comments but the one that convinced me was from someone I really respect who said “If Toby says he will do something –he will honour his word” that was good enough for me – the rest as they say is history.
In the time he took to develop the “Site” he was extremely easy to deal with, patient, as I am a Dinosaur!!! He took the time to find out more about our Products and Customers - which certainly helped make the site more effective and user friendly.
I have to say Toby listened to all my concerns and questions, and would always give a reason why he did not agree with any of my suggestions and state it maybe better to do it in such and such a way as it will have a better outcome for the customer. I have no doubt that because he took a personal interest in the “end result”, to ensure that I was 100% happy, that the finished article exceeded all my expectations.
I also found it very reassuring that Toby came around to my house and showed me progress reports on how everything was coming along. That added to my confidence that the completed site would be a success which undoubtedly it has has been.
I had grave misgivings about building a “Web Site”, but the experience I encountered with Toby was a pleasure, and I learnt a great deal from him in the process.
I have no problem recommending him or his company to anyone or company that is interested in having a “Web Site” developed .

Make Up By Design
While planning to set myself up for business as a freelance hair and makeup artist, I was looking at the idea of building my own website. This ended up being a lot harder than I expected and so a friend of mine recommended Toby from Geek Free Web Design.
I immediately called Toby and he was such a pleasure to talk to. He made me feel confident that I could build my own website through his company and with his ongoing support; I finally have my website published and ready to view. It was so simple to use and is so easy to change around if I need. I love how I can change anything on my website within seconds without having to rely on someone else to do it for me!
Toby was extremely patient with me as I have hardly any computer skills and was able to guide me through to the end. He would check on me regularly to make sure that I was on schedule and would ask if I had any questions. It was a great feeling to know that Toby was truly supporting me and was on hand if I needed.
Toby still checks on me every now and then to make sure that everything is running well and is always giving me helpful advice to make sure that my website is starting to build momentum and to get good results from Google.
I am so grateful to Toby and also to my friend who had originally put me on to him!! I would still be trying to figure out where to start!!
I love how my website has turned out and I love the results!
I highly recommend Toby! He is fantastic to deal with, supportive and takes great interest in making your website succeed.
Thank you again Toby for helping me to build such a fantastic website and for the ongoing support.
Make Up By Design
We have dealt with a few web site development companies, and found Toby to be by far the most proactive, knowledgeable and helpful to deal with. He makes a point of keeping in touch with us regularly and checking whether we need any assistance with anything. He definitely went the ‘extra mile” for us: listened closely to our needs, and offered excellent, knowledgeable advice.
As designers our website is our showcase, so it was important that it reflected our design ethic clearly, and was easy to negotiate, as well as allowing us to update it regularly. Toby gave us excellent training, and easily accommodated our requirements within the website structure.
The process was very straightforward thanks to Toby’s guidance, and we highly recommend anyone considering a website to use him.

As a complete newbie when it comes to website design I don't actually think there could have been a better website design service for me. Toby at Geek Free shepherded me through the process from initial concept to follow up with patience and an innate understanding of what I needed and how he could best help.
He is very generous with business advice, which is excellent, but the best thing about working with Toby? It's so obvious that he really wants his clients to succeed.
Writer / Script Consultant / BrainStorm Director
We were fortunate enough to be approached by Geek Free Web Design when we were thinking about updating our web page. Our knowledge in knowing how to go about our website was very limited and they made it all very simple. This was in both the planning stages and the implementation of our new site.
Toby was fantastic in listening to what we wanted our site to achieve, and in advising and making happen our requests. The whole team at Geek Free had suggestions to make everything work easier and to accommodate us with our limited knowledge.
The service is ongoing and we are always treated with respect and courtesy. We are still needing training and this is no problem to them. They are always ready to help.
We have no hesitation in recommending them. We have been very pleased with our website.
The Farm and Lifestyle Centre
Initially I saw signage on the side of the road advertising Geek Free.
We approached the company and I found the process in dealing with Geek Free very, very easy and convenient for us as a business.
We're very satisfied with the end product, definitely.
The thing that I like best about the website is that it's easy to run and it's not to hard to self-manage, and that it's user friendly.
We've been getting a lot of good feedback from it, especially with our specials page. It was a worthwhile investment for our business and there''s a lot more we can do with it too.

When developing our website, Toby from Geek Free quickly came to grips with our industry needs and worked closely with me from the start to finish. he helped me focus on what was important for us to highlight and provided insightful general guidance on content and graphic ideas, while he took care of all the technical details.
I felt that my input was listened to and that Toby promptly handled any edits and graphic changes to the website content. As a result, we now have a professional website that I am proud of. Additionally we have been shown step by step how to edit particular areas of the website with photos and text, all the while safe in the knowledge that Toby will always be available as a backup.
Thanks Geek Free!

We were becoming increasingly dissatisfied with our Yodel hosted website and I had seen the Geek Free van driving around our local town, so a quick search on their background lead to a phone call and then a meeting with Toby and we were well on the road to a functional new site. As a result of our new site we are seeing an increase in contacts made directly from the email link on the site and also people ringing to make further enquires whilst viewing the site.
Our website is simple but effective and gives visitors a clear overview of what we have to offer without overloading them. If is very easy to maintain the site enabling us to post new specials, photos or update information. The construction of the site was made easy by the team working for Geek Free, they listened to what we had to say and offered valuable advice on how best to achieve this and excellent tutorial assistance was given so we could manage the site ourselves.
I would not hesitate to recommend Geek Free Web Design for anyone looking to create a new website or revamp an outdated one.
The Range Warkworth Limited
Planning and setting up my first website for my makeup artistry work was an exciting and challenging obstacle. I wanted to have a modern media facility where my existing and future clients could view my work, and effectively market my services.
In order to achieve this, I engaged the services of Geek Free Web Design, and haven’t looked back! They have provided a prompt and efficient service that has seen the establishment of a very modern website, which has earned better than expected feedback from my clients, and initiated more sales and awareness of my services than I expected. Geek Free Web Design provided the facility and guidance that is needed to achieve a website product that is professional, and customized towards my industry.
I am just thrilled with the results I have had, as a result of the website investment. I have had so many enquiries come through already and I know I will have a lot more!
I just want to say thank you Toby so much for all your hard work and all the support you have given me. I have also enjoyed being part of the process and the knowledge gained along the way! I would highly recommend Toby; he and his team will not disappoint!

We are more than happy to recommend Toby and Geek Free Web Design. Toby was very transparent in all his dealings with us, advising on best practices and the costs involved at every step and his after-sales service has been first class. We are delighted with our fresh new website which is very user-friendly - for both the parents to find information and for us to keep it updated.

I was referred to Geek Free web design by a good friend of mine. Realising the importance of online marketing in my real estate business I wanted to create more exposure for myself in a very competitive area of Auckland and decided that an individual website was the way to go.
It was easy decision but a slow start (for personal reasons) required patience and thoughtful approach from Toby. We’ve got there - so big “Thank you” for all your efforts!
With guidance and feedback from Geek Free I have now driven my site up to the top end of the search engines and it has helped me to more effectively market local properties and express my approach to real estate.
For friendly, patient and helpful advice I'd certainly recommend Geek Free without any hesitation.
