We Are REINZ Accredited

Woohoo! We are now REINZ accredited and only one of very few PM companies in Christchurch to hold this...

We have been a member of The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) for years but this month we are officially accredited as a Property Management company. A1PM is currently one of three Property Management companies in Christchurch that holds this accreditation status.

If you’re a property owner, here are some reasons why it is important to choose a company and property manager that holds this REINZ Property Management accredited status:

  1. The Property Management industry in NZ is not regulated, so there is no need for Property Management companies to follow any specific rules or obligations (other than the Residential Tenancies Act 1986), when managing your investment. The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) has now created a benchmark for Property Management companies and individual Property Managers. Not all Property Managers are eligible to be members of REINZ, only those who act with professionalism, honesty and integrity in their dealings. When looking for someone to manage your property give yourself peace of mind by choosing a REINZ Property Management member.
  2. Property Managers in NZ do not need to be qualified to manage you property. This can lead to mistakes and the wrong advice which can cost you as the property owner, time and money.
  3. You can visit the REINZ website and search for those accredited companies and individuals that are located in your region that hold this accreditation status. This will help you when you decide to choose your next Property Manager and company.

A1 Property Managers is accredited both as a company and as individuals. Most of our team hold a specific qualification in Property Management too or are currently studying towards obtaining one. Therefore, you can have the peace of mind knowing that the advice and the work we do for you meets specific rules and obligations that protects you, your property and your income. Don’t put one of the most important assets you own in the hands of someone that isn’t accredited and qualified.

We are always keen to chat and help out where we can, whether it be full management or perhaps just some advice, we'd love to hear from you! Contact us on (03) 3517643 or [email protected].
