The first Propertyscouts office started in 2004 in the challenging Dunedin rental scene, with its eclectic mix of high-octane student rentals, low-and high-end rentals and everything in between. Our franchise model 'BLASTED OFF' in early 2015 with the first two franchises sold into the Auckland area. Since then we have arguably become the fastest growing Independent property management company in New Zealand. With several owner/operator businesses across the North and South Islands and more to come we are on target to reach our stated goal of being New Zealand's most recognised and trusted name in property management.
Landlords love our simple, no fuss, RENTAL GUARANTEE and our motto: your investment - our guaranteed commitment.
Propertyscouts is committed to excellence. Our aim is to provide a personal, yet professional service to each of our clients - owners and tenants alike. We like to say that we are 'small enough to be personal but big enough to be experts'.
Today our head office has moved from Dunedin to Christchurch. If we haven't landed in a town near you yet then stand by, it may not be too long before we do.
Each of our Propertyscouts offices operates under a comprehensive, best practice framework. We undergo regular training to ensure that we keep abreast of the ever-changing legal landscape. It's taken fourteen years to build the enviable reputation we have, and we are very cognisant of how easily that could be damaged. Each of us is a member of the RPMI (Residential Property Management Institute) which has a very robust code of ethics and disciplinary process. As well, each Propertyscouts owner and any of their staff must abide by strict rules of practice, with significant consequences for non-compliance.
