Sell Property

Selling your property can be a massive decision. So it's good to know that, as sellers and landlords, our salespeople have been through this process many times before. As we live and breathe property, we communicate knowledgably with all parties involved in the transaction. Our vast experience in all areas of the market makes your sale as enjoyable and stress-free as it can be. Once you list with us, we do everything possible to see your home or investment appears on the 'Solds" the following month.

We target qualified buyers and let them know your property is for sale, and we do this better than other agencies. Although we utilise the same media as others, our advantage is having access to thousands of investors on our database who we can alert when the profile fits. When they compete against a normal home buyer, we help you get the best price for your property. This is one of the major differences that offer you a huge advantage.

It's nice to know you are in good hands. We provide all the expertise and advice. You are paying the commission, but not as much as you would pay other agencies. You're in charge and you call the shots. We listen and sell the property the way you want us to.

Buy Property

As a one-stop property shop, Property Ventures are the experts whether you are buying a home, property investment or commercial property. Nobody knows property better than us. Our salespeople, located throughout New Zealand, are owners and investors themselves. So we understand property requirements from every perspective – the seller, buyer and tenant – and we know what you’re looking for. We are experienced negotiators, skilled at achieving the best result possible for you.

Property Ventures started as a dedicated property finder service. With that history we find many sellers come to us primarily seeking a quick sale. We know it’s not always about the best price, so we have developed a matching service which lets us know exactly what you are looking for to give you a greater chance of finding that specific property. In addition, we educate and keep you up to date with the latest news and views via the NZ Property Podcast and Facebook (propertyventuresnz) to help you make the smartest, most informed decision when purchasing property.

Investment Property

Property Ventures Real Estate first began as Property Investment NZ. Because of our history, we have a massive database of buyers of investment property throughout New Zealand. Property investors list with us because of this difference, we can do what other larger real estate companies can’t do.

Our sales team have extensive experience and a clear understanding of property investment. If you are developing on any scale, call us on 0800 NZ PROPERTY (+649 361 3501) or email

  • Mark assisted us with purchasing two properties in Rotorua & Papakura, New Zealand. He was a great help, and operated with 100% integrity, which is very important when you are buying from overseas.

    I have no hesitation recommending Mark, and I'm sure we will do more deals together in the future.

  • We cannot speak highly enough about the time, care and dedication of both Mark and Kate from Property Ventures. They are such genuinely lovely people to work with and made the experience of selling our much-loved home a little less scary!

    They were open to our ideas and suggestions, flexible with open home timings and also really confident about making a sale for us and they certainly delivered! Mark has a wealth of experience and knowledge and combined with Kate's creative and enthusiastic approach they make a fabulous team.

    Being a boutique agency meant that we had the hands-on care and dedication we needed to find the right buyers for our home. They are simply outstanding and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.


    Mark gave us friendly, professional, reliable, and honest service that enabled us to get our portfolio under way with a solid property offering great cashflow returns. We're now watching all of Mark's offerings with interest as we look to increase our property holdings and will definitely be buying more property through him. Every dealing we've had with Mark has been fantastic. The best example we have is when he called us up a few days before settlement on one particular property to offer us an even better property. Contracts were cancelled and reissued on the spot with no fuss or drama. We highly recommend Mark Honeybone's team to anyone looking to invest in property.

  • I highly recommend Mark and Property Ventures to any investors. I recently purchased a new build property through Property Ventures. Mark made the whole process a breeze, especially considering I am offshore with odd time zones. The property has gone up substantially in value, and it's not even finished yet! I look forward to the next one.


    Daniel O'Rourke
  • A property on Clayton Road was one of two that I bought through Mark and Property Ventures last year. He is truly a fabulous person and we look forward to working with him at greater depth this year.

    Dipak Naran
  • I would happily recommend Mark for any property investor who can't afford the time involved with researching and finding suitable properties. Although it is made clear that you do still need to do your own due diligence, I personally have ended up purchasing 3 out of 5 properties that I have seriously investigated in the last 2 years and I have a solicitor who ensures I am very fastidious in this regard! Mark has contacts throughout the country and has always been great to deal with when checking out a prospective investment. The follow through in ensuring you get the deal you want has always been excellent and the generous assistance provided with any issues evolving after the deal is completed has been a major factor in why I have ended up giving Mark my return business. I will continue to deal with Mark not just because I value the open, honest and helpful approach, but the fact that the deals on offer are some of the best around.


  • I liked the way Mark was open about any shortcomings on the properties and didn't try to hide anything and I'd be happy to recommend or talk to anyone about the transaction. - Deal was in Northland $350 a week rent for $161k purchase. 



  • My partner Linda and I purchased a property in Dannevirke (two townhouses on a single title) through Mark while we were living in Singapore. The purchase price was $158,000 and we are receiving $275 a week in rent. Mark was friendly and informative throughout and gave us the confidence to purchase the property both without actually seeing it or meeting Mark in person... though we're hoping to return to New Zealand to do both soon. I  have no hesitation in recommending that friends or co-workers talk to Mark regarding property matters.

  • I would like to say thank you Mark for making the Kaitaia Flats deal work, the finer points that needed clarifying was fully explained and for answering all those questions (which were many) we asked of you. The transition was very smooth and we are extremely happy with our new investment. We look forward to doing further business in the future.

    Heather & Les Newth
  • My partner and I recently joined up in a very profitable JV with Mark, buying a block of units in Nelson. At the time, I was in New York and with my partner in Wellington, we didn't meet Mark until after the deal was completed. Mark has an excellent local knowledge and understanding of real estate throughout NZ, but more importantly he has integrity. This honesty and professionalism made it a pleasure for us to do business. Mark organised the purchase, complete renovation and sale to another investor, all within 90 days of settlement. I have now included Property Ventures on my "team" of trusted real estate contacts and look forward to our next partnership.
    Thanks Mark and by the way, it was fantastic to catch up with you in person.
    (Deal was a Joint Venture for $73k Gross Profit in 11 weeks.)

    Ian Fraser - Property Developer
  • Considering we were purchasing foreign real estate in New Zealand from California and were unable to personally view our investment, it was imperative our New Zealand representative was knowledgeable, honest and timely. After considerable due diligence we decided Mark Honeybone and Property Ventures would be our broker for New Zealand property investments. Since, we’ve been involved with three purchases and have been extremely pleased with the service and results. My only wish is that I could get Mark to assist us on our Australia portfolio!

  • During this past year Mark has been instrumental in helping me secure two properties in the Blenheim region. In my dealings with Mark I always found him to be honest and professional, with a great knowledge of the properties he's marketing. I would buy from Mark again, and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking to buy property.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Mark and Slade for the hard work they put in to make this deal happen for me. Slade has been great and it's been a pleasure working with him over the last 5 months. It was unfortunate that Pembroke Street did not work out, but it was a good learning experience and the professionalism and commitment demonstrated by Slade in all his dealings with me has been exceptional.

    I would also like to commend the great work Property Ventures are doing to bring amazing deals across to investors and utilising and sharing your knowledge with investors. I sincerely hope Property Ventures and the team continue to grow and expand and keep achieving great outcomes for investors.

    I will certainly be using the Property Ventures team again hopefully pretty soon to keep growing my property portfolio.

  • I want to take this opportunity to say what a fine job you've done producing your podcast. I arrived in NZ in January 2017 and basically spent the last few months listening to all your previous episodes, starting from the very first one. It has been a very informative journey and extremely useful. In the process, I have now recently appointed GRA to set up my structure and been in touch with Kris Pederson to get set up for financing.

    I don't think everything will be set up in time for me to act on these but keep them coming, and I am looking forward to my first deal with PV in the not too distant future.

    Once again, I really appreciate the great job you are doing at PV Podcast. With Best Regards.

  • David made buying my first home process easy and stress free. His communication skills were second to none and was always available to answer my queries in a very professional manner. I felt like I was his first priority every time we spoke. He was always able to work around my schedule for viewing times and even after settlement he continued to help chase for spare keys, documentation etc... I thoroughly recommend David if you are wanting an easy, hassle free transition into your new home.

    Thanks so much David, I mean it all. You were so helpful and made it really easy. Thank you!

    Maggie McCabe
  • I recently worked with Kathy Engelbrecht from Property Ventures to sell my 20 acre bare block of land in Karaka, Auckland. I have sold many properties over the years and as such had experience with many salespeople, most of who lack basic communication skills and are only after the paycheck at the end. I must say Kathy has been one of the best salespeople I have ever worked with and was a welcome change to know there is still at least one awesome agent out there.

    Kathy has awesome communication skills, she was always polite and easy to deal with, always easy to contact and was happy to answer any questions I had. Kathy would always inform me of viewings that were about to happen and then when they were over follow up with a call to say how it went so I always knew I was in the loop. If there was any more info a potential purchaser required Kathy would actively do the research to get the info asap.

    I would definitely use Kathy again anytime and would recommend her to anyone I could as she puts in the effort to get the best results for her clients. If you want the best service and a great result then give Kathy a call to discuss your needs.


  • I am happy to highly recommend Mark to any investor, we have purchased 2 properties off of him in the last 6 months and both of them we are 100% happy with. One of the houses we haven't seen yet, but Mark made it an easy painless process, he helped us with everything from rental appraisals, valuations, builders reports to property management. We were very nervous buying out of town so we checked and double checked all the numbers he gave us and we found he was right on the mark and very honest with everything he told us.
    I can't wait for him to find us the next deal!! Narisa
  • Not being a professional in the property sector myself, I found Mark coached me through every step of the way. Mark's honesty and integrity is what gave me the confidence to buy from him when a deal did come up. He took time to answer all my questions. I only wish I would have come across Mark years ago. In fact the only hesitancy I would have in recommending Mark would be that I would prefer his client base to remain small so he could remain one of the best kept secrets in the industry. I do plan on purchasing from him again in the future.

    Nick & Ella Carter
  • We bought a block of flats through Mark and are very happy with the investment. He was helpful, frank and easy to deal with. We also appreciate the way he follows up after purchase and with relevant investment advice, information and other opportunities. We will work with Mark again in the future when the time comes.

    Nigel & Joanna Smith
  • For me, Mark quickly established trust with professional industry knowledge and experience to add to his genuine, easy-going character made it a pleasure to do business with him. Mark is now my first port of call for any future property deals and I have no hesitation in recommending him to other investors. Deal was in Westport $450 a week rent for $230k purchase.


    Paul Stevens
  • During this past year I had asked Property Ventures to assist me in finding an investment deal seeing as I could never find enough time to search for one. As the months went by I did begin to wonder if there was a deal out there for me but Kathy always kept encouraging me that we were close to finding that elusive investment property. Kathy went above and beyond in my opinion and put in a lot of effort to find the right property deal for me based on my criteria. Kathy had great in-depth property knowledge and she was always available to answer any of my questions even on her days off. I would like to take this opportunity to thank and show my gratitude to Kathy for being so instrumental in finding my first 2 investment properties. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to purchase an investment property.

  • David helped us to sell our first property and got us a great price through his existing network of buyers without even having to advertise it! He was very knowledgeable, responsive and attentive, and provided good advice in relation to the options and the sale process. We were very happy to have David acting for us and would definitely use him again in the future.

  • I had been looking for a high yield multi-tenant property in a secondary city, and when I saw Property Ventures' advert for a 10% yield in Dunedin I jumped in immediately. After a short due diligence period the purchase proceeded, with settlement in March 2014. Mark provided rental appraisals pre and post cosmetic reno, together with cost estimates, all of which turned out to be accurate. With Mark's assistance the reno work was completed and the property fully tenanted within two weeks of settlement. Final yield is over 11%. I found Mark to be very professional and extremely helpful, and he delivered on the promise.
