Delivering quality development opportunities to the market
Our team of experts specialise in matching quality development opportunities to credible buyers (both developers and investors), with expertise that is backed by research and timely market feedback.
We use a collaborative approach that blends the expertise from our Residential Projects, Research, Consultancy and Valuation teams to provide a sophisticated offering to our clients.
Drawing on our experience, we use a proven strategy to maximise price by working hand-in-hand with buyers to extract the highest and best offers. Diving deep into every single sale, we commit to developing a comprehensive understanding of the market and our client's needs, allowing us to develop and implement strategies that often take a property’s market potential to new levels.
Our high performance and results driven culture means that our team are with you every step of the way to ensure the sale and purchase process is as smooth and enjoyable as possible. From concept to completion, working with Colliers International's Site Sales accelerates your success.
Our team can add value to underdeveloped properties through specialised advice. The Auckland Unitary Plan has added development capacity to sites that were previously maximised, both through additional height availability and change of use, and we are well positioned to help our clients unlock this upside.
We provide residential specific and development research relevant to your projects. We are able to utilise our specialised research capability to provide custom advice where required to provide peace of mind to our clients, and where required we are able to provide advice around the appropriateness of developments and market trends. Our team will provide initial consultants with no cost to our clients.
