About Us

NZR is a new real estate company established by four capable and experienced real estate agents. Having worked within corporate real estate companies for many years, Peter and Nicola Barnett, Jamie Proude and Blair Stevens all felt that they could offer their clients a better service if they set up their own business.

With 36 years of combined real estate experience and recognition along the way as being some of the most successful salespeople in the country, the brand might be new and fresh, but the philosophies are based on strong foundations.

Our Philosophy

Based on our 36 years combined real estate experience, the quality of the result a client (vendor) gets, is directly related to the ability and effort of the real estate salesperson they choose; it has very little to do with the size of the company that the salesperson works for.

Changes in technology, use of the internet and other marketing mediums means that all companies can now offer their clients similar marketing options, so 'bricks and mortar on every corner' is not necessary in today's real estate landscape.

So our focus as a company is on providing the best tools to our sales team to help them help their clients get the best results.


Our rural business is strategically located across the lower North Island, with branches in Ohakune, Feilding, Greytown and Napier. Wide reaching business networks with other rural professionals throughout the rest of the country ensure our vendors properties are given the widest audience possible.
