The APL Group of companies provides a comprehensive range of professional property-related services specifically designed to meet the needs of government entities, local government / territorial authorities, commercial organisations and private property owners.


Operating originally in Blenheim (since 1998 as Abel Properties) and Queenstown (since 1982 as Robertson Valuations, then Lakes Property Services) APL has grown into a group of three limited liability companies operating independently under the APL brand with offices in Blenheim, Queenstown, Alexandra and Rotorua. Along the way the APL Group has established a track record for delivering expert solutions to the complexities and risks of commercial and public property ownership.


Together the APL Group offers an outstanding breadth and depth of expertise and experience backed by significant investment in technology and continuing professional development. And APL is committed to delivering excellent customer service. Resourced to take on large scale national contracts and welcoming the challenge of complex and demanding projects, APL is yet small enough not to lose sight of individual client needs.
