Forbes Global Properties

PQ W.png

Extraordinary Properties. Exceptional Values.

We are a boutique agency specialising in selling extraordinary properties with discretion throughout New Zealand. PQ Property Intelligence is the exclusive member of Forbes Global Properties in New Zealand and the Cook Islands.
We provide purchasers and vendors with local knowledge and international capability whilst offering a full service package from acquisition through to  settlement. We can add value to a property before it goes to market which may result in a higher price for the client and a shorter duration of the sales process.

We bring vitality and a fresh perspective. 

Our approach is creative and innovative.  

Extraordinary properties require a specialist skill set to maximise their value. These properties are often complex, involve substantial analysis and in many cases the proposition requires optimisation before they can be brought to market for the vendor to get the best possible return.

We provide the complete spectrum of property services, supplementing our core services by collaborating with selected companies with whom we have established close working relationships. We will create a small, specialist team that works with you throughout your project.

We value our relationships. We treat all our clients with the same care and respect.
