You might want to look at the function: SavePropertyValuesofElement in Property_Test OR Do_CalcComponentQuantities in Element_Test  in the API Examples. Both use the same methods that you need. These main function(s) both write to the Session Report using WriteReport(). You will have to modify that function to use the returned values you want as it will return all the properties, so you would have to also filter the returns. i use these functions to write all this data to a Python script then use Pandas to filter the info, etc. You will get back a lot of data, but very fast.

Do you have access to the Archicad API developer site, i.e. have you registered as a developer?
