About Us

What is Arete Property?

Arete Property was founded in 2014 by a group of 5 property professionals with a mix of practical and investment experience. Today, Paul and Ant run the company and pride themselves on their ability to create great outcomes for their clients. We have purchased 100+ properties and are happy to contribute towards the replenishing of Christchurch’s housing stock.

We’re transparent about our processes and like to make the experience as relaxed as possible for property owners. It’s more than likely that either Paul or Ant (or both, if you’re lucky) will be the people you will deal with during your selling process. Feel free to contact us via email, phone or text. We’re always happy to chat.
