NPG was conceived in New South Wales in the early 1990s and was founded with the intention of bringing together a group of valuation firms for the benefit of promoting and developing excellence and best practices within similar small to medium sized real estate valuation firms.
Network Property Group (NPG) is an association of independent valuation firms in New South Wales and Victoria. The organisation is managed by an elected Executive Committee.
The primary focus of NPG is to promote professional development and the implementation of best practices. The group has bi-annual seminars where members have the opportunity to participate in professional development programs and discuss business issues relevant to the valuation profession.
Past seminar topics presented at NPG conferences have included:
- Risk management
- Professional indemnity and litigation
- Quality assurance
- Recent trends in property markets
- Developments in information technology and valuation systems
- Report writing techniques
More recently the group has explored commercial advantages to its member firms. This encompasses marketing NPG as a leading group of valuation practices in Australia to existing and prospective clients and exploring economies of scale opportunities in professional development, information technology, professional indemnity insurance and business expenses.
