Together, shaping cities where communities thrive
Property Council is the leading advocate for New Zealand’s most significant industry – property.
Property Council New Zealand acts as a collective industry voice, giving our members a seat at the table with politicians, to ensure they make informed decisions that benefit our industry and enable a strong economy.
Our strategic aim is to influence Government and decision makers to support decisions that foster a thriving property industry. We aspire to be, and be seen as, an industry leader, reinforcing our role as the voice of the property sector.
