Genuine growth potential in a stable and secure environment with strong employment and income levels, means Wellington must be on the radar of any serious investor.

From technology and digital creativity, to primary industry and food production, the economy is diverse and export-focused. Partly thanks to the government sector, the Wellington economy is more resilient than the rest of the New Zealand's economy, and more able to withstand shocks such as falling commodity prices.

"[iFindProperty] was without a doubt the help I needed to secure my first two investment properties. She navigated me through the realms of the property market and has taught me a great deal about due diligence and adding value. She has given me confidence and motivated me to keep my finger on the pulse of the property world, so I can build my portfolio."
- Andrew Thorne
"We really enjoyed working with Peter to purchase our first investment property and learned a lot through the process. We're planning an extensive renovation to increase the yield and wouldn't have purchased this type of property if it wasn't for Peter's help. His enthusiasm for property investment and experience in the Wellington market were clear from the beginning. Peter was always available to talk through any questions or concerns we had throughout the search and due diligence process, and was very patient as we decided which of two houses to pursue. When it came time to put an offer in, Peter's up-to-date market knowledge helped us come up with a price that would be competitive in a hot and fast moving market"
- Sarah and Dave
"Buying a property was a lot easier with Peter on our side. We would highly recommend Peter and his team to our friends and family, and we will definitely be getting Peter to find our next investment property."
- James Wu
