Abstract: After a seven-year process of investigation and negotiating by a small team of New Zealand Institute of Forestry (NZIF) members, government granted an exemption to NZIF registered members under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008. This permits those members to assist in real estate transactions related to forestry without also being required to become licensed real estate agents. This paper is a blow by blow account of what was involved and the delays and frustrations experienced by the team.
