Residential Rentals Limited is a 100% property management focused organisation providing hands on, knowledgeable property management services to landlords in Auckland and the greater Auckland area.

Established in 2001, we are a boutique family run business specialising in managing good quality homes for property investors and home owners. Our property managers have a smaller portfolio of properties to manage in comparison to many other property management companies, and you have a whole team working for you, not just one person. This allows us to offer hands on personalised property management service and ensures your property is managed to the best possible standards, keeping you and your tenants happy.

We are investors ourselves, this means we know what it is like to be a landlord and how important it is to have a property manager working for you and we pride ourselves on the fact we very rarely go to Tenancy Tribunal because we select the right tenants and provide effective tenant management.

Our mission is to simply take the hassle and worry out of owning an investment property and to help our owners achieve the very best return for their investment. When we do business with you, we really care about the outcome for both of us.

So whether you are a professional investor, just entering into the property market for the first time or if you are a home owner moving away from your family home and need someone to manage it until you return, you have come to the right place.




Alan_Image.pngAlan Rolston Owner of Residential Rentals Limited, has experienced first hand and contributed towards some of the most exciting growth of the greater Auckland area since 1999.

Alan’s investment experience began with his first property purchase at 18 years of age. Since then he has been closely involved himself, and with others, in wealth creation through residential property investment.

In 1997 Alan set up his own construction company to produce good quality three and four bedroom brick and tile homes. These homes were constructed in good locations therefore attracting good quality tenants who were prepared to pay excellent rents, while at the same time providing investors with a property that would provide them with excellent capital gains, and give them years of maintenance free ownership. He passed these homes on to Property Managers in the industry, only to find that their performance was completely substandard. Brand new homes had poor quality tenants that were simply not screened effectively.

In 2001 Alan set up Residential Rentals, so that he could he could take on the management of these properties for investors, providing them the knowledge and experience gained over 40 years in the industry. He then left the construction business entirely to focus all his attention on providing the best property management service in Auckland and the Greater North Island region. 

With a real passion for residential  property and a vast knowledge of the rental and mortgage market, Alan has over the years, helped clients create real wealth through this type of investment.

Today the company is under the management of Alan's daughter Angela, who has brought experience in sales and operations management to the company, while holding onto the values that the company is built on. Alan still plays an active role in advising and passing on his in-depth knowledge to Angela.
