Otago Branch

Welcome to the Otago Chapter

PGeoff Thomasroperty Council's Otago Chapter was formally established in August 2012 to meet demand from Otago commercial property owners, developers and professionals who want representation at a national and local level.  Industry professionals in Otago also saw real benefits with the networking opportunities that Property Council can provide, bringing this in as a core part of the chapter's offerings.

The chapter has strong representation in both Dunedin and Queenstown, and is led by a founding committee comprising a small group of committed industry professionals. Join us as we embark on new exciting territory, and be a part of the voice of commercial property in the lower South Island.
