Colliers International brings local expertise, global reach and a corporate approach to rural real estate.

The profitability of agribusiness and export growth has led to a change in the traditional family-farm model in rural New Zealand. Smaller farms have amalgamated into large enterprises where highest-value land use, operating efficiency and profitability are paramount.

Buyers of rural real estate are now sophisticated investors who demand a high level of detail when considering opportunities. Our experts have a track record of managing large scale rural real estate and business transactions and working with these buyers.

With investment sales experience spanning large multi-million dollar assets across a variety of property sectors including retail, office and industrial, Colliers International has the expertise and connections necessary to market assets to a sophisticated national and global buyer pool.

We work with rural land and business owners throughout the country, matching investment opportunities with leading domestic and global investors.
