Independent Property Advisors is New Zealand's foremost tenant representation firm. The company was formed to meet the demand of corporates wanting professional advisors acting on their behalf in matters relating to their commercial property. The company is spearheaded by James MacCormick and Jenna van Sambeek who have over 25 years combined experience in commercial leasing.

IPA is part of an Australasian network of tenant representative firms with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Auckland.

We are a skilled, flexible organisation with the ability to tailor our services to meet our individual clients' needs. Our role is to be an intermediary between you and the property market, giving advice on property related decisions and ensuring that the best outcomes for your business are achieved. When we partner with you, our goal is to minimise the distraction caused by your property requirement allowing you to remain focused on your business.

IPA is dedicated to providing a quality service to our clients and building lasting relationships. As an independent organisation we can ensure that all advice given is unbiased as we only represent tenants, not landlords.
