Welcome to RCG Realty

Property Is Our Bloodline - Born Out Of A Strategic Need

RCG Realty was established to make the investment journey simple, underpinned with support and guidance from in-house property, economic and architectural experts.

Originally the agency was created purely to facilitate client’s property transactions. After years of RCG assisting their clients with design, planning, and fitout strategies, it became apparent that the crucial property decisions and transactions were outsourced, and undertaken in total isolation, so it made sense for RCG Realty to be born to complete the property process.

Fast forward, and RCG Realty’s offerings, services and results caught the eye of the industry, and we suddenly found ourselves being referred to all types of sales and leasing opportunities from all parts of New Zealand. The snowball effect happened, we evolved, and we are now a strong team of salespeople and property professionals who can assist with most disciplines of the property industry.

Why not integrate this thinking and services to get the best possible results for our clients?
