About Bayleys Commercial

Bayleys is New Zealand’s largest commercial and industrial real estate agency. It’s the only significant national real estate business in this sector that is Kiwi owned and operated.

Established as a specialist commercial and industrial agency in the early 1970s, this remains the cornerstone of Bayleys’ business. 

Here’s why we have the country’s biggest commercial property client base: 

Strength in numbers  

Bayleys sold or leased over 2,100 commercial and industrial properties in our last financial year at a total transaction value of close to NZ$2.3 billion. Based on the audited end-of-year financial results for all significant commercial real estate agencies, Bayleys has won the Large Commercial & Industrial Office award at the annual Real Estate Institute of NZ awards for the past four years. 

Being New Zealand’s most active commercial agency means we can provide our clients with increased opportunities, economies of scale and the best possible results.    

Bayleys Property Services (BPS) also the country’s largest provider of commercial property and facility management services. Employing over 50 people and managing in excess of 320 properties worth around $2.5 billion, BPS has a focus on reducing clients’ exposure to property risk and increasing asset values.    

National coverage 

From Queenstown to Kerikeri, Bayleys has over 170 specialist commercial and industrial sales and leasing agents working as an integrated team. More agents in more locations means greater access to buyers and tenants for our clients.    

International capability  

Bayleys sells more property to offshore purchasers than any other New Zealand commercial real estate agency. Our international database has been built up over 30 years of activity in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.   

Our specialist International Sales team based in Auckland is the country’s largest, giving clients unparalleled access to both local and offshore Asian investors.   

Bayleys is also the New Zealand affiliate of Cushman & Wakefield Ltd – the world’s largest privately held commercial real estate services firm – and we work closely with them to market larger properties offshore. We also assist multinational clients of Cushman & Wakefield with their New Zealand business accommodation requirements.    

Marketing power  

Bayleys’ strong brand, market experience and innovative marketing tools makes our clients’ properties stand out. We have a marketing team focused solely on commercial and industrial sales and leasing, supported by specialists in digital, direct marketing, production, advertising and media relations.   

Our media buying power means we can give our clients competitive rates and preferential placements, making their marketing spend more cost effective. As well as traditional media, our campaigns also benefit from digital and social media, apps and other platforms, ensuring our clients’ properties enjoy the greatest possible exposure.
