The Renovation Team

The Renovation Team takes the stress out of totally refurbishing your property. We are experts when it comes to full do-ups of residential properties – we find the hidden value in your property by identifying cost-effective ways to make a dramatic difference.

The Renovation Team was started in 2013 by James Goren, who began by renovating his own investment properties. Soon real estate agents, other investors and his friends realised that he had a talent for seeing the bigger picture when it came to renovation. He also has an incredible understanding of the numbers, thanks to his experience as a process engineering manager and his extensive research into valuation and the housing market. Word spread and The Renovation Team began taking on more and more projects, promoted only by word of mouth recommendations from happy customers.
Since then, The Renovation Team has completed hundreds of complete property renovations across Auckland. Satisfied customers continue to recommend us because we make the renovation process completely stress-free and add enormous value to every property. Whether you’re renovating to live, to sell or to rent, we can make the whole process run smoothly – on time, on budget. And we’ll also aim to achieve an excellent return on your money, so that every dollar you spend generates additional value, building your wealth and increasing the saleability and rentability of your property.

Value-add benefits are offered to APIA members include (for a limited time) a free professional photo shoot of the renovated property and a choice of either a 900mm LED bathroom mirror with anti-fog technology (approximate value of $500) or brand name oven (approximate value of $700) for full do-up projects.

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!
