Auckland Property People Awards

Thank you for supporting the 2018 Property Council New Zealand Auckland Property People Awards!

We believe that people are what make the Auckland property industry the thriving, diverse hive of activity it is. These awards celebrate the people in property, recognising excellence in leadership and innovation in the South Island property industry, whilst celebrating outstanding contributions to the industry and economy.

We believe in celebrating the people who create our city. 

This year's Awards brought together nearly 400 Auckland property professionals, awarding nine outstanding individuals and teams at a black tie gala dinner on Friday 2 November 2018 at the Hilton, Auckland. 

A special thank you to our valued sponsors, nominees, panel of judges and guests for making this event such an extraordinary success. 

We look forward to hosting you again on 1 November 2019.
