The Real Estate Authority (REA) promotes a high standard of professionalism in the real estate industry, educates home buyers and sellers through our consumer brand, settled.govt.nz, and helps protect their interests. Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions many of us will make in our lives and at REA you'll be working with people who are committed to making it the best possible experience.
