Howard was professional, honest and succinct, with a lovely manner and followed up after settlement. Having dealt with numerous agents in the search of an apartment, Howard was a breath of fresh air, a delight to deal with and we would definitely use him for any future property needs.

Hi Howard, we have received good news from the property manager and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind assistance for the past few months. Your advice is really appreciated by us during the whole property buying processes. In addition, we are very happy that with your connection again, we are able to rent out the property immediately after the purchase.

Thanks and regards

Why Invest in New Zealand?

New Zealand and Auckland in particular, is lagging with a shortfall of over 10,000 new houses each year, with each successive year adding to that number. This along with various other factors including restricted supply of land, limited supply of new housing, skilled contractors and construction supplies, and ever-increasing rents are only adding fuel to the fire. We are currently in a sustained moving market which keeps pushing prices up.

Auckland's population of 1.5 million is growing every year through both domestic and immigration growth. With approximately 50,000 new residents every year or 960 people per week, the population of Auckland is expected to reach 2 million by 2050.  That means that two thirds of New Zealand's population growth between 2001 and 2026 is projected to be in the Auckland region.
