First and foremost we are there to help you sell your property or purchase another. However, to attain the best possible outcome and to optimise the proposition, we can provide the following services though our company or affiliates:
On- and Off-Market Sales

Interior design maximises the aesthetic appeal of a property to a potential purchaser and at the same time can increase the sale price. Projects can range in scope from styling an empty home, a new build or a development, all the way through to simply adding accessories to existing furnished properties to lift their appeal. We have specialists with extensive experience with new builds, modern homes and classic, heritage residences. Interior schemes are tailored to suit each individual property to secure the best possible result.
Your property may have more value than you are aware of. Tailored, innovative and comprehensive solutions for specific client business property needs could add a lot of value to your property. The main objective of offering business advisory services is to bring more focus to the value proposition. Before going to market let us put you in contact with one of our specialist advisors to discuss your property’s potential with you and have a strategic business plan developed to optimise the proposition.
It is often worthwhile to have an analysis of your project done to investigate whether it can be, or is likely to be completed successfully. The analysis should account for factors that affect the project. For example, economic, technological, legal and scheduling factors will help to determine potential positive and negative outcomes before a considerable amount of time and money is invested.
A project manager with knowledge and experience could take over a project you have developed helping you to save time and, in the long term, money. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints.
It typically consists of five process areas, four phases plus control:
Typical development phases of a building project
Planning and design
Monitoring and controlling
Completing or closing

Appraisal and Valuation
To get a better understanding of the value of your property have an initial appraisal done. Get a valuation done for your bank or insurance and to give you security and peace of mind. We can offer you both services.
Based on the latest comparable sales in your area, an appraisal should give you a good idea of how much your property might sell for in the current market. However, although an appraisal does give you a strong indication of the property’s current value, often for commercial and legal purposes a registered valuation may be required.
Full market valuation
We deliver personalised and accurate independent valuations by local registered valuers in your region.
You might be buying or selling a property, looking for ways to add more value to your property, transferring your property to a trust, needing insurance, thinking about investment properties, negotiating a lease, or you may need reporting on asset values. Our independent valuers will provide you with peace of mind and confidence on what your property’s value is in today’s market.

Independent consultation with an Architect to realise your properties full potential could be well worth considering.
Contemporary forms, rooted in strong consideration for building usage, are underpinned by sound environmentally sustainable building principles and finished with an informed use of materials, elegant and robust detailing.
To be effective, architectural innovation requires diverse expertise and collaboration. A broad range of disciplines need to come together including resource management strategies, model making and digital technologies, landscape architecture, sustainable design initiatives, urban planning and interior design. Each project comes from selecting individual talents to create the right ‘super team’ for particular projects.
Before going to market make sure you understand the full potential of your property. Talking to a qualified surveyor will give you a realistic picture of both the opportunities and threats to consider including the examples below.

We can recommend first class property law advice through our partner firms
Conveyancing is the name used for the process of transferring property from one party to the other. The process in New Zealand is very efficient and usually involves a lawyer or a real estate agent putting together an Agreement for Sale and Purchase. The purchaser's bank, the Council, the body corporate (if it is a unit title), insurance, are all tied together by way of undertakings between solicitors, and registration of the property into the purchaser's name on Land Online.
Property investment advice Many clients are creating wealth through property. Legal advice in this field is something to seriously consider. For example:
entity advice concerns what type of entity to use and why.
borrowing strategies Do you borrow all from one lender or do you use revaluations and insulate your risk by borrowing from several lenders?
negotiation strategies It is not only about the price you offer, there are other factors that come into play.
how to add value to your properties and increase borrowing capacity.
acquisition advice including options, auction strategy.
how to reduce risk and enhance tax effectiveness.
Body Corporate matters - All unit title properties are members of their respective body corporate, whether there are two standalone villas, or a complex containing two hundred units. But there can be huge diversity amongst them all. Many issues arise which require legal advice.
who is responsible for certain maintenance and structural issues - unit owner(s) or body corporate?
is the management agreement fair and can the manager be held to account? Who by?
what if a unit owner is not complying with the rules?
are the rules adequate for the complex or do they need updating?
can the body corporate make better use of the common property to benefit unit owners?
can you cancel the unit plan and revert to freehold ownership?
consideration of your risk and tax positions.
subdivision matters including drafting and registration of new titles, consent notices recording resource consent conditions, covenants recording various client-imposed restrictions, and easements for location of services.
OIA Consenting/foreign ownership of land
If you are purchasing a property as a foreigner, the likelihood is that you will have to get the Overseas Investment Office involved. It has become much harder for non-New Zealanders to acquire land here. However, there are still possibilities that can be considered.
