Wellington-based independent property adviser TwentyTwo has joined Exis, the world’s first global tenant representation network.

Exis launched in October 2014, comprising 15 leading tenant advocacy firms in 21 locations across four continents. It provides multinational clients with conflict-free, strategic representation across borders by local member firms. 

TwentyTwo’s managing partner Dean Croucher says the launch of Exis is perfectly timed: “On a global scale, more businesses than ever are now seeking independent advice to help them make property decisions. 

“They want to avoid the conflict of the traditional broker-landlord relationship and, because more businesses have cross-border operations, they want certainty of standards for the advice they get in every location. 

Exis members provide it.”

Exis is an invitation-only organisation and member companies in each nation are selected following due diligence to ensure philosophy, approach and process are aligned with Exis standards. 

“We’ve learned a lot from our colleagues across the world, not least that businesses in other countries, especially the US, are far ahead of New Zealand when it comes to seeking independent property advice. 

“The idea of ‘doing it ourselves’ and using traditional landlord-broker relationships still dominates property thinking here. 

We’re at the coalface trying to change that and having a global view through Exis is a huge motivation.”
