Innovation & Technology

We don’t think like normal property management companies. We use the latest technology to ensure that we are always improving the property management experience for owners, tenants and our staff.   

We use Property Me, Australasia’s #1 property management platform. This has empowered our team to work more efficiently and to deliver the best results for our clients.     

We also use Tapi, a market-leading maintenance manager that gives our clients and tenants the best experience.  

Tenant selection and tenancy agreement preparation is seamless, because we use the leading platform, Renti.     

Our property owners have 24-hour access to the owner’s portal via Property Me, meaning they can access information about their property, whenever they want, wherever they want. They can see routine inspections, entry and exit property inspections, rent owing, rent paid.

Customer Success

We put our customers at the centre of everything that we do. We aim to help all of our property owners achieve their goals with their investment properties. We make decisions around how we operate as a property management company based on how it benefits you. Your success is our success.     

Many of our team are property investors – so we know what works, what doesn’t, what’s important, and what levers to pull to maximize your return on investment.   

We hire only passionate, friendly and trustworthy staff; the right people to look after your most valuable asset. People who are forward-thinking and ideas-driven, while being empathetic and kind. People who can relate to both owners and tenants.

Trust and Communication

Your rental property is likely to be your most valuable asset, so nothing is more important than being able to trust your property manager to look after it. We earn this trust through reliable performance, compliance, transparency and excellent communication with our property owners. When you become our client, your property manager will work with you to decide the communication level and style you prefer. We can contact you as often or as little as you like about your property – you decide.   

We are proud to be the top-rated Auckland property management company on Google because our customers trust us. We take pride in our high standards as they are key to building clients’ trust in our service. We are Auckland’s leading property management company because our landlords trust us to find excellent tenants, to look after their property, and to communicate transparently at all times.  

We are Qualified Property Managers. All of our team are either undergoing NZ skills level 4 training or have completed the course. They have the experience and skills to know how to manage your investment properties effectively. We want you to have peace of mind, knowing your real estate is in good hands. And we are not real estate agents, we are professional property managers.
