I worked with Kenn on a major (over $1m) complicated insurance claim where an adjuster was being #$%&^%$# difficult. Kenn stepped in to solve the problem without offending anyone and the client was extremely pleased with the result he negotiated in delicate circumstances.

Kenn has always been incredibly helpful, enthusiastic and well informed about all matters in which I have dealt with him, from President of the Nelson Chamber of Commerce, business mentor, through to insurance advisor. I have always found Kenn to be very approachable and willing to assist. I have no reservations in thoroughly recommending Kenn. 

Kay Chapman, Chapman ER Ltd

I changed from a large insurance broking firm to Kenn simply because of the extraordinary service Kenn and his team provides. Nothing is too much trouble, all the small print is checked for me, and my options discussed in plain language. Kenn makes sure we are comprehensively insured (unlike the previous brokers) and when it comes to renewal time, he doesnt just roll over the previous cover, he rechecks our needs and the options the market has to offer. I cannot recommend Kenn enough.

Cathy Madigan, Manager - Uniquely Nelson

Kenn Butler and the team at Paradise Brokers have been looking after the insurance needs of Uniquely Nelson for several years. Kenn and his team are fantastic to deal with, nothing is ever too much trouble and my requests are always dealt with promptly, the results always what I want and all with a smile! Great to have that local knowledge and to know Kenn is always trying to get the best outcomes for his clients. I love Kenns weekly emails too, always a delight to open up and read on a Monday!

Efficient and expert. Just what I needed

A Local Underwriter

The point of difference with Vision Insurance brokers for me is that I feel like a part of their business. I feel like my service is appreciated. Because of their strong relationaships with their customers, my conversion of quotes to successful sales is 50% higher than industry standard.

Godfrey Watson, Champion Property Management

We have been using Paradise Brokers for our insurance needs for 18 months now and have found them excellent to deal with, whether it be discussing aspects of insurance or sorting out the details around a claim. Their service is excellent. They clearly care about their clients and are prepared to go the extra mile for them. Crunch time comes when you have a claim and need experienced people to sort out your claim for you. While on-line insurers are happy to take your money after a few minutes ticking the boxes on the line, try getting them to help you out and take a serious interest when you want to make a claim! Insurance is a complex issue and needs detailed attention. We trust Paradise Brokers to do it right!

Judy van den Yssel-Richards, Jester House

Paradise Brokers make the whole process of insurance, from buying it, lodging a claim and finalizing the settlement a breeze. Insurance was always in the "Too Hard Basket" but Kenn and his team take all the hard out of it and make it easy.


Dear Mariana & Kenn,

To Prospective Clients: During recent dealings with your Firm, I have found you to be excellent in quotes, & also prompt with your service, & would certainly recommend you as very professional in your line of business.

Hugh Steadman, Prenzel Distilling Company Ltd

Kenn has looked after our insurance for as long as I can remember, certainly for more than the past ten years. We have never considered a change in our broker as we have always felt that no one else would show such a personal interest in our needs or wouldgo so far out of their way to ensure that we got the best protection for the best price on the market.
