We offer you the opportunity to catch up with your peers and also through meeting our inspiring young students and hearing their stories you get to experience the next generation of our sector.
We have a few key events during the years which include our cocktail evenings across the main centres. We have our famous Rugby Lunch which, on the day before the Auckland round of the Bledisloe Cup, is the warm up event to a great day of rugby. At the end of the year we celebrate, as we bring together the leaders and achievers of the Property Industry and introduce you to our next group of inspirational young property students as they start their Keystone journey.
These events allow you to witness how your support is really making a difference in assisting some of the finest young people achieve their goals.
