Mike Houlker

Commercial, Industrial and Syndication Manager

Bayleys Real Estate Ltd, Auckland Central,
Licensed under the REA Act 2008

Mike Houlker is one of New Zealand’s top and most experienced commercial and industrial real estate salespeople - as recognised by being awarded the “Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) National Commercial and Industrial Salesperson of the Year” for three out of the last five years. An incredibly rare achievement in New Zealand’s real estate sector.

Across all markets, Mike Houlker has been involved in many billions of dollars’ worth of sales and leasing transactions and has consistently been one of Bayleys' top performing salespeople over the last three decades.

Since joining Bayleys in 1986, Mike Houlker has had roles in sales and management in Wellington, Sydney and Auckland. His ‘cut-to-the-chase’, plain language, practical approach to all property matters has gained him not only respect in the industry, but also huge repeat and referral business.

As an integral part of the Bayleys’ commercial and industrial team in Auckland, Mike also works with Bayleys’ wider agency network across all of New Zealand and project manages a large number of national and international marketing campaigns on behalf of Bayleys’ clients.

Mike is also the head of Bayleys syndication and investment products division and qualified as a financial advisor. Bayleys provides investors opportunities to access premium, high-yielding property offerings across the commercial, industrial, healthcare, and agricultural property sectors with forecast returns paid monthly. Access to ‘value-add’ fund opportunities with fixed terms and higher projected IRRs are also offered. With a very wide range of clients, investment amounts range from the minimum ($10,000) through to many millions spread across multiple offerings.

Working in conjunction with one of Australasia’s leading and largest property fund managers, the ASX200 listed Centuria Capital, Mike has project managed the marketing of more than 60 syndications and property funds over the past 20 years – raising over $1.3 billion of capital from investors with a total property value in excess of $2.5 billion.

Recent single asset funds (commonly referred to as “syndications”) and property funds that Mike has project managed the marketing and selling of include two of New Zealand’s largest - raising approximately $270 million of capital from investors over three stages for Centuria NZ Industrial Fund (formerly Augusta Industrial Fund) and the $109 million equity raise of Visy Glass Industrial Property in Penrose, Auckland.

Other investment opportunities offered within the last year include an agricultural property fund, along with a healthcare property fund comprised of a portfolio of 23 aged care facilities with 30-year triple net leases to Heritage Lifecare.

Previous syndications/funds include:

Xero’s headquarters in St Georges Bay Road, Parnell, Auckland, Mercury Energy’s new corporate headquarters at 33 Broadway, Newmarket, Auckland; Telecom (now Spark) located in Auckland Central; Southgate Retail Centre in Takanini; Centuria Property Fund, providing investors with the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of strategically selected directly owned assets, along with other property related investments in the longer term, within the one investment vehicle; a number of Countdown supermarkets throughout New Zealand and properties with other high profile tenants such as ASB, Airways Corporation, Bunnings, Mitre 10 Mega, Carter Holt Harvey, Coca-Cola, Enza, BDO, Toll, Downer, Fletcher Steel and NZME.

Mike also manages the marketing and selling of Australian based property funds to New Zealanders. The two most recent Australian offers included A-grade office buildings with government tenants, one located in Adelaide and one in Melbourne.
