Commercial Property Services

"As property managers, we have a vast and reliable network of quality architects, engineers and tradespeople to ensure building work is completed cost effectively and on time."

Commercial Property Investment


By liaising closely with the commercial real estate network on a regular basis. Part of the local property community for more than 18 years, our long-standing relationship with commercial real estate agents has proved invaluable through many purchases and continues to be an advantage passed on our investors.

We actively seek property with certain quality aspects that we believe will result in better than average returns for our clients.

Properties are either purchased at auction with the client or secured by private treaty and then transferred to an investor.

This process involves:

  • Inspecting the property
  • Financial feasibility
  • Building compliance
  • Leasing with the real estate agent
  • Arranging funding
  • Arranging valuations
  • Arranging insurance
  • Determine the best ownership structure
  • Liaise with solicitors for a smooth settlement
  • Arrange changeover of rental payments from vendor to purchaser


Property syndication is a direct property investment that allows smaller investors the opportunity to invest in high-quality commercial and industrial real estate.

This pooling of capital allows smaller investors the opportunity to participate in investments often reserved for the larger, more sophisticated investors.

Pooling is an effective and affordable way to invest that has grown in popularity in the past few years.

Focus on Property manages and maintains all property syndicates on behalf of the investors, meaning the you don’t have to worry about the hassle of day-to-day property management matters.

Robust feasibility studies are vital to ensuring the success of a commercial property investment.

Focus on Property can undertake full feasibility studies encompassing all necessary factors to enable an informed decision to be made.

Whether researching markets, or analysing trends, values, time-frames, engineering, legality and achievability, we have our finger on the pulse to safeguard your project’s future success.

Properties are often purchased under due diligence to enable these feasibility studies to be undertaken while reserving the purchase and the right price.


Focus on Property is built on a strong commercial development background with many of our staff holding their own portfolios of refurbished offices and commercial buildings. Changing the use of a space is major undertaking, however we know first-hand that in many cases it can be the key to releasing the higher potential of a commercial property.

We have experience in obtaining Resource Consents and Building Consents to ensure projects are delivered on time. Rest assured, our investors are fully informed of risk and are involved throughout the entire project.
