About Property Council

About Property Council

Property Council exists to champion the property industry.

Property Council was founded 42 years ago by a small group of commercial property owners who wanted a united voice that lobbied to reduce red tape and champion the property industry. It was from these humble beginnings that the foundations were laid for a successful member association that values the benefits of shared knowledge and collective capability. 

Today, Property Council New Zealand represents over 550 member companies, connecting over 10,000 property professionals, who collectively own more than $50 billion worth of property nationwide. 

We act as a collective industry voice, giving our members a seat at the table with policy makers and local regulators, to ensure they make informed decisions that benefit our industry and enable a strong economy.

In support of this we conduct industry insights, and host over 80 educational and networking events every year, connecting over 10,000 people. 

We inform, we inspire, we connect.

We are your voice. The voice of property.
