Property Council New Zealand's Auckland Branch proudly present the annual Auckland Property People Awards, to be held on Friday 2 November 2018 at the Hilton, Auckland.

We believe that the driving force of our industry is the people behind it; that excellence in leadership and innovation in the Auckland property industry will help to grow our city. The efforts behind this growth should be recognised – which is why we are honoured to bring you these Awards, celebrating the people in property.

We believe in celebrating the people who create our city. 

Last year's Awards brought together over 350 Auckland property professionals, awarding nine outstanding individuals and teams. Nominate your colleagues, reserve your seat and prepare to celebrate the best and the brightest in the Auckland property arena.
