Our Beginnings

Bayleys was founded in 1973 by the Bayley family and since then, Bayleys Real Estate has grown to be one of New Zealand's largest property services companies and is still a family business today.

In 2002, Bayleys Canterbury was formed when a selection of established real estate companies from across all disciplines in Canterbury came together under the Bayleys umbrella.

From our seven offices, a full spectrum of real estate services are provided including residential, rural, lifestyle, viticulture and tourism specialists who are complemented by the commercial & industrial sales and leasing teams. We are also home to an expert property management team who provide personalised services with quality properties. Bayleys Canterbury has a well deserved and enviable reputation as a market leader having sold some of Canterbury's finest real estate.
