Stake Property Limited was established in 2009 and has been buying, renovating and selling properties since that time. Stake Property Rentals was born from our investor customers asking us to take care of their properties for them. It was from here we decided to offer a comprehensive all in one property management service to help our customers streamline their investments. We have since established ourselves as Auckland property management experts!
Today Stake Property continues to go from strength to strength, offering more ancillary services such as insurance, insulation, renovation and landscaping services. Our Auckland property management team is flexible and mobile, so for your convenience we will come to you whenever you need us. Or you can always arrange a meeting and call in to our centrally located office at 711 Dominion Road, Mt Eden.
