At DPM we strive to be the best communicators in the game. We tell you what you need to know, and when you need to know it.

On the rare occasion that a landlord/tenant relationship becomes strained, you can be rest assured that we will be there to support and ensure an equitable result is achieved for all parties.


We select quality tenants with proven track records by carrying out formal screening and background checks.

Our inspection methodology sets the platform for a pro-active approach to resolving maintenance issues early in the tenancy helping to avoid negative long-term consequences.


Being a member agency of the REINZ we are provided with rental insights and best practice guidelines. We also utilize a subscription to Scotney Williams L.L.B, NZ’s leading RTA consultant.


We operate both short and long term rental portfolios, allowing us to tailor a solution to fit your requirements. If there is an uplift in tourism we can swiftly opt your property into a holiday rental structure to maximise returns.
