What it means to be a REINZ member

As a member of REINZ, your business and team have access to the services provided by the Institute. These include advocacy, advisory, eforms, statistics, education, events and more.

Most of our memberships are Agency Memberships. These are available to companies of all sizes — from sole traders to some of New Zealand’s biggest companies and brands.

All REINZ members are held to a high standard of professional excellence and to become a member — as an agency or individual — you must meet specified requirements.

Agency Member

Any company or business entity engaged in business as a real estate agency may become an Agency Member if they meet the criteria set out by REINZ.

Property Management Member

A property management agency doesn’t need to hold a Real Estate Agent’s licence to operate or become a member of REINZ. However, as a REINZ agency member, they must meet certain criteria.

Commercial and Industrial Agencies and Business Brokers

These are licensed real estate companies specialising in the sale and purchase of businesses, commercial properties or industrial properties. They have limited access to statistics and some eforms.

Our members are proud to have REINZ next to their name. We encourage members to use the designations where possible.
