At only 20 years old, she has already achieved far more than most. To say that she is New Zealand’s first ever Eisenhower Youth Fellow, named the most influential New Zealand woman under 25 at the Westpac Women of Influence Awards, recognised as one of the Top 5 Young Leaders by the Ministry of Youth Development, personally awarded a Queen's Young Leader Award for Services to the Commonwealth by Her Majesty, The Queen would be too light a gloss-over and simply not do her energy, vision and drive enough justice. Her latest milestones include being invited by NASA to be part of the SOFIA Project (the youngest ever invitee) and the youngest New Zealander to speak at the United Nations HQ in New York only recently at the Commission on the Status of Women.

Like all APIA members, Alexia has also chosen property investment as a tool for financial freedom. She started at age 16 with a modest seed capital of $7K which has been nurturing and growing since.

What drives this young lady to constantly seek new heights and hit the mark? Join us at this special event to find out. Come hear Alexia unpack her perspective about this world we live in, how to defy expectations and break boundaries in order to live up to the vision you have for yourself.

Alexia will talk about:

  • Her personal mission and the societal norms she is taking on to redefine and modernise;
  • What 2019 New Zealand means in terms of opportunities for personal and professional success;
  • As a budding investor, Alexia’s property journey so far and her perspective on what financial freedom means;
  • Her drive and motivators to advocate for woman and education;
  • Three recent personal highlights that shaped her views on living life to the fullest, challenging yourself and championing change. 

Alexia’s address will be a combination of a keynote address and an on-stage interview with plenty of opportunities for your questions to be answered.

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!
