About Property Council

Together, shaping cities where communities thrive

Property Council is the leading advocate for New Zealand’s most significant industry - property. 

A not-for-profit organisation, the Property Council connects more than 10,000 property professionals, championing the interests of over 600 member companies who have a collective $50 billion investment in New Zealand property.

The property industry comes together at our 80+ Property Council events, which offer professional development, exceptional networking and access to industry-leading research.
