New Zealand's most cosmopolitan city

The character of Auckland City has changed dramatically in the past 15 years, from predominantly commercial to a more cosmopolitan mix of commercial and residential real estate. A large proportion of Auckland's inner city living is located in stylish high-rise apartment buildings, providing more than 20,000 dwellings throughout the city, and beside Auckland's stunning harbour.

City office has extended its services to cater for people wishing to buy and sell on Waiheke Island, where we have a dedicated team specialising in Island properties.

Please call Branch Manager Sandra Forrester if you are considering selling or would like to discuss having your property managed by our award winning team.
