About Rolle Property

Rolle Property provides quality commercial property management and consultancy services to a wide range of clients.

Rolle Property Ltd was originally established in March 1989 as Rolle Consultancy and Management, with the prime objective of providing property management and consultancy services to investment companies, private investors, institutions, Government Departments, State Owned Enterprises, and quasi Government Authorities on their commercial property holdings.

In the beginning there was a sole property manager, an administrator and a part-time accountant. Over the past three decades Rolle has grown both in size and experience, now with ten staff looking after a wide range of properties throughout New Zealand.

In 2020 the two original directors, Alex Robertson and Gay O’Sullivan, handed the leadership over to Melissa McGhie and Lisa Duggan. Melissa and Lisa have both been with Rolle for over ten years.

The Rolle team has experience in managing a large range of properties from standalone warehouses to large premium office buildings from suburban malls to inner-city hospitality complexes.

We know that commercial properties vary considerably in their size, complexity and requirements and we are able to tailor a management package to suit your specific needs.

We have established valuable contacts with building suppliers, tradesmen and property professionals. There are two full time working Directors thus ensuring that Rolle operates with a hands-on approach and is able to respond promptly to any challenging situation should one arise.

With over 30 years in the industry we have proven ourselves to be reliable, comprehensive property managers, building relationships with owners, tenants and contractors.
