Easylife Northriding

Seshnee Wood

Thank you for a job well done! My new kitchen looks absolutely fabulous and I couldn’t be more grateful to Amanda, Manny and Shawn for everything. Thank You for taking the most important part of our home to such an immaculate level. From conceptualization with Amanda to installation with Manny – I feel extremely lucky to have worked with such amazing professionals.

Thank you so much to the ELK Northriding Team for such amazing work!

Yours Truly,

Hi Shawn

Just to let you know how happy I am with the kitchen. I couldn’t imagine what the outcome would be, so am very pleasantly surprised. I love it.

Thanks to Megan for the perfect design as well as the installers who did a sterling job. It took two days and such perfection from them to install and I am very grateful for that.

I know I am going to have many happy years in my kitchen ☺

Kind regards


Dear Shawn

Just an additional note of thanks for the (yet again) exceptional planning and work by Marie and ELK. The end result has exceeded expectations, and we are most grateful. Thanks again to Marie who repeatedly went the extra mile to look after us in every respect.

This is now 13 years and 3 experiences of ELK, all of which were six stars. We have worked with the North Riding office on two of the three occasions, most recently with a complete rebuild of a dressing room / study. The project was (again) managed by Marie, who from start to finish went the extra miles (and then some). Her original planning, design, and then her supervision throughout took all the stress out of the construction. When the predicted minor glitches present in any major project appeared, her response was immediate, and the solutions were found first time. Their installation team, headed by Gibbs, were flexible, working smoothly and efficiently from the very beginning. The team were meticulous in their care (during these Covid times), and cleaned up the site spotlessly at the end of every day.
I have no hesitation in recommending this branch, its Head, Shawn, and especially Marie, Gibbs and his installation team, for their attention to detail in every way. Well done all.

Dear Kavita

We just want to thank you and the whole team!

From that one Saturday starting with the tour in your show room right to the end, the experience has been fenominal!

Thank you for the beautiful design and all the patience after we reworked some of the ideas, the sound advice and suggestions we received from you. We just love our kitchen and really spend alot of time in it.

The simplicity is striking and we have received only but compliments. We love our space saver towers and really impresses our guests!

All the best,

Deidre & Sylvia

Dear Marie

Firstly, congratulations to your team today. They did a quite outstanding job. Between you, Shawn and your team, you have a lot to be proud of.

Best wishes,


Deon Govender

You and your team met your communicated timelines and carried yourselves with professionalism throughout. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.

Dear Megan

Thank you for the chocolates and my humble apologies for the conditions you had to work under, but glad we were able to restore the relationship.
I am delighted with my kitchen and could not have asked for a better outcome, your eagerness to help was prevalent and my sincere thanks to you and Shaun for your time and effort spent in making one very happy client !!

Just want to mention Jose’s excellent workmanship, as mentioned, definitely the best in his field, his team and equipment with which he works is most impressive, not to mention the extra mile he goes for the client, his pleasant manner, the neat way he works, always obliging and helpful with his keen eye for detail, is most rewarding.

I will certainly recommend Easy Life Kitchens (Northriding) for their professionalism and hands on approach.

Well done on an excellent job !

Hi Liezel

First of all, thank you very much for the very professional job you have done at our house at 138 La Vie Nouvelle. We are very happy with the result, you have done an excellent job. Please thank Shawn for the chocolates. They are our favourites. All the best and wishing you much of success in your business.

Dear Mr. Shawn Dammermann

I am writing to you as the franchisee of Easylife Kitchens (ELK) on behalf of my wife Grace and myself. My reason for writing is precisely express our sincerest gratitude and to congratulate your Design Consultant Miss. Marie duPlessis for pulling off a most wonderful project that gave us our dream kitchen recently. We specifically wish to thank Miss duPlessis for steadfastly walking every step of the way with us from the moment we were introduced to her right up to the final closing off of the project with patience and absolute diligence. We were highlighted by her deep insight, superior skill in design and her wit and innovative agility to be able to grasp with absolute clarity all the nuances and desired outcomes. Her warm personal energy and professional conduct were simply irreproachable and her project management ability allowed her not only to deliver the project on time and with the expected precision of quality but she also has a sharp eye to watch unnecessary cost and thereby helped us to find high value for our money. Marie is an extremely talented individual and it was very fascinating and rewarding to her ignite into action when she brought her project into life from mere ideas and drawings. Throughout the project she communicated effectively about all the important issues and coordinated the sub-contractors very well. We would like to thank Marie for literally pouring herself out distinctively and without reservation in order to make sure that we are happy and excited with the final product. We are truly delighted and wish Miss duPlessis well for a very bright looking future. We also would like to thank Luke Temple and Joddy for their excellence and highly skillful delivery of our dream kitchen. We also think that there is some scope for improvement of some of the EasyLife institutional arrangements or processes to slightly tempered to become more customer-centric rather than internally focused. Once again the top accolade goes to Miss. Marie duPlessis.

Dear Kavita

Dave and I would like to commend and thank you for the professional way in which you managed the process of refurbishing our apartment’s kitchen. The proficient and prompt manner in which you assisted us through the process of design, selection of finishes, instillation of the kitchen and the handling of the snag list was reassuring us that Easylife Kitchens was the correct choice.

We would not hesitate in recommending you and Easylife Kitchens based on the outstanding service that you provided us.

Hi Shawn

‘Trust you are well.

I had to drop you an email to give a shout out and a humongous recognition to John. He really was a fabulous breathe of fresh air! I was on my way to the Butchery up the road when I noticed the EasyLife kitchen. I had actually planned to make time to go to the Fourways branch which is closer to my house, I just never made it there. I was pleasantly surprised that I could just pop in and ask all the questions I had all along.

John welcomed me. Not only was he a breathe of fresh air, he was very patient and knowledgeable. I actually walked in 5min before the shop was closing (I was not even aware at the time), John took the time to patiently take me through the entire showroom, which I absolutely appreciated! His passion alone was breathtaking! By the time John was done, I knew that Easylife Northriding was gonna do all that I need done in my house. I was not even aware that you also do vanities & bic. It just so happens that what you offer, is exactly what I need.

I will definitely be doing business with you when ready.

A shout out to Tanya as well.

Pat Maclare

Thank you, Liezel

It was a pleasure dealing with you and your efficiency and knowledge made our transition

so much easier and was much appreciated.

Thank you once again

Hello Shawn

A quick note to say a big thank you to Marie for her wonderful work. It was a small job, but she treated it as priority always and she gave it the same attention she would’ve given a big job. Professional at all times, Marie delivered a superb product. I could not have been happier.

The installers were also great. I sat back and relaxed (for the first time in my three-month renovation ordeal), as I knew they had everything under control. Also, professional and courteous.

You have a wonderful team. I will definitely recommend you and your team to friends and family and whomever wants to listen to me. And as Marie said, we’ll remain friends.

Take care,

Dear Megan

I cannot express my gratefulness in going the extra mile for me in sending Roy to check out everything, what a lovely team, your leadership and communication skills are evident. I am delighted, have GOOD NEWS !!! Roy tightened the pipes properly, so no replacing of my cupboards needed, thank goodness…he also noticed the connection running from the washing machine is not kosher and has quoted to change it so that the washing machine will run flush against the wall, which you spotted.

I would like to express my gratitude for all your help and assistance, you have been a SUPERSTAR.

Kind regards

Dear Amanda

Compliments of the New Year! I hope you had a wonderful and safe festive season.

I’ve been meaning to contact you but with COVID on our side I have had quite a hectic schedule at work and was unable to get to this. I know that this is long overdue, but I would still like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the wonderful kitchen you made for me in 2020. It’s been a few months since you completed it but I’m still loving it very much.

To you Amanda, thank you very much for the most beautiful design and the choice of material. This has worked quite well in my small space and have even created more space and brightness in my house. I’m so in love with it few months down the line. Thank you also for always being willing to assist me with purchasing additional appliances even afterwards.

You were so professional and ensured that I get a high-quality product. I love my kitchen and cannot trade it for anything in the world.

Best regards in the new year.
