Office: CBD

I am a registered legal executive who started at Saunders & Co in 2016. I work mainly with Partner, Ben Frampton, on residential property conveyancing, and to a lesser extent “wills and estate” administration.


Building strong relationships with clients is important to me and I enjoy meeting them face-to-face and providing clear explanations and communication throughout every step of the property transaction.


The opportunity to guide first-home buyers through the purchase of their new home, and call them with the good news once their property is settled, are aspects of the role I particularly enjoy.  I have handled numerous Kiwisaver withdrawals, so can provide valuable tips and assistance regarding this process.


I am known for my friendly, helpful approach; for being open, honest and transparent at all times; and for keeping clients well informed.

What My Clients Say

Nicole Watson worked with me and she was outstanding. I was overseas at the time and there were a few complications.  However she went above and beyond and I will be suggesting to others that they use her.

Bryan Stronach

After 40 years of service we are most impressed with the professionalism of your company. Nicole Watson contacted us on several occasions and kept us up to date with the events happening around our sale and purchase. When meeting to finally sign all legal papers everything was ready to go without a hitch. To have settlement confirmed early on the day of sale was so helpful as we were only one link in a series of chainovers affecting us.
Many thanks also to Sarah Bee, partner, as our principal in organising this.

Brian and Helen Edmunds

Excellent communication throughout and very prompt service. I was reassured that Saunders treat the client’s interest as top priority.

Ian Hosty, Chapman Engineering, Christchurch

Nicole helped us every step of the way with our purchase. She was friendly, knowledgable, full of good advice and a thoroughly enjoyable person to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling.”

Ann Easter, Christchurch

A massive thank you for all your hard work in securing our land.  We really appreciated your support and level of communication during the purchase. I hope to keep in contact as I am sure we will need your services once again when it comes to the build!

Mary Barclay and Sergio, Christchurch

Nicole Watson was very professional, easy to contact and made the whole process of selling our home hassle-free. We have used David Lang and Saunders and Co for many years and would highly recommend your company.
