Meyer Vandenberg delivers success to the property and construction industry through excellence and value

We’ve helped everyone from foreign nations down to small enterprises by providing tailored, client-focused solutions that suit the project budget.

The MV Difference

  • We are the largest property team in Canberra and provide full service. What’s more, we are collaborators with each other, with you and your external consultants, and we resolve to find the right solution, regardless of where it comes from.
  • We have deep-seated relationships with key government contacts, industry associations, influencers and stakeholders in the property and construction sectors.
  • We are more highly rated by our clients (using the Net Promoter Score) than the top-tier firm average.
  • Our business is locally owned and finely attuned to the Canberra and region property market. We value our reputation, and yours, highly and will work fiercely to uphold them.
