Bayleys has re-signed its affiliate status with global commercial real estate firm, Cushman & Wakefield.

Mike Bayley, managing director of Bayleys Real Estate, says the branding partnership with Cushman & Wakefield was a winning ‘two-way’ street for both businesses.

He says Bayleys is the largest privately owned real estate company in New Zealand with more than 1800 staff nationally.

“Combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s global reach and 45,000 employees around the world, this provides our clients with the most comprehensive commercial property service in the market.”

The joint reach of Bayleys and Cushman & Wakefield in New Zealand spans:

  • 83 offices and 2000 employees,
  • 4480 properties under management – totalling 7.8 million sq m of property under management,
  • a $2.3 billion commercial property portfolio under management,
  • more than 2300 commercial and industrial sales and leasing transactions completed annually, and
  • more than $11 billion of property sold per annum.

“Not only does our affiliation with the Cushman & Wakefield brand allow Bayleys to promote appropriate New Zealand properties to a global stage, but it also enables our affiliate partners around the world to directly introduce their client lists — predominantly larger corporates with a global footprint and high net-worth individuals - to our domestic database,” Bayley says.

“Real estate is essentially about who you know. Being part of Cushman & Wakefield’s global alliance means a lot more potential buyers and tenants around the world can be introduced to the New Zealand property market …. be they in Beijing, Sydney, Mumbai, London, Paris, or New York.”

Paul Amato, Cushman & Wakefield’s New Zealand integrated facilities management managing director, says the company’s 71-year old business in the country was founded in facilities management, project management and trades services to both the corporate sector and major government departments.

“Our specialist knowledge of engineering, maintenance, sustainability and asset management is something that we can offer to Bayleys’ client base,” says Amato.

Mike Bayley says the Bayleys’ full-service product suite – encompassing sales and leasing, valuations, property management, and property operations advisory resources - also dove-tailed into the requirements of Cushman & Wakefield’s international customers looking for representation in New Zealand.
