Andrew Bruce, Auckland Property Investors' Association


You have always been told to treat your properties like a business. But what does that actually mean in practice? How do you strategically and efficiently run a rental property portfolio?

APIA President and experienced investor, Andrew Bruce, shares his investment journey, the lessons he learned and the skills he picked up along the way to help his portfolio get to where it is today. 

Talking points include:

  • A brief overview of Andrew's experience, background, strategy and where he is at right now with property
  • A realistic take on how 'passive' property is as an income stream
  • Why should you treat your investments as a business and what does that actually mean on a day-to-day basis
  • How hands-on Andrew is as an investor, what he spends most of his time on, what he automates, and the external services he uses to keep his portfolio running efficiently
  • What are the common pain points that stop investors from growing and how you can overcome/avoid them
  • Case studies of challenges Andrew have had to overcome over the years and a walk-through of his solutions/resolutions

This presentation is suitable for investors of all experience level.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
