About Bayleys Commercial

Bayleys is New Zealand’s largest commercial and industrial real estate agency.

Bayleys is 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.

The value of our brand is greatly reinforced by our presence and leadership in many areas of property. Our in-depth knowledge is constantly giving our clients positive experiences across our 16 business lines: office leasing, city and fringe sales, industrial and logistics, industrial investments, large format retail, advisory and consultancy, business broking, corporate recovery, Iwi services advisory, hotels and tourism, development site sales, Asian services desk, property syndication, capital markets; retail leasing and sales; healthcare, student and childcare services.

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