New Zealand Property Institute President, Chris Seagar said today, "This was an excellent concept and conference. We were very pleased with the feedback we have had to date. We tried to stretch minds and provide useful information, and we achieved that. It was excellent to have our Australian friends there, especially after last week's rugby game. This conference was another important step in the development of unified property market practice between the two countries".

There were excellent speakers, excellent and relevant issues addressed and it was great to have a mix of Australian and New Zealand property professionals.
