The award recognises large agencies that manage over 1000 properties and their contribution to property management over the past financial year, considering factors such as quality, service, and performance.
From the judging panel, Professor Graham Squires commended the agency’s achievements.
“The award for Property Management Agency of the Year (Large office) to Waikato Real Estate was well deserved and demonstrated that the organisation has made an outstanding contribution to property management over its last financial year.
“This award is based on a combination of quality, service, and performance. [They] have evidenced that they are excelling in all three of these areas. Congratulations,” he said.

Pearson highlighted personal stories that came to the success of the agency in a creative video award submission, including tenant experiences who were also quick to show appreciation for the team’s hard work.
It also showcased their commitment to maximise rental returns through strategic renovations.
Ten-year tenant of Waikato Real Estate, Jade, highlighted the relationship she built with the team over the years, and commended the support they provided her in finding different homes across different paths of her life.
