Hackish but works:

(defun my-org-agenda-view-item-properties ()
  "Display the properties of the item at point in the agenda."
  (let ((m (get-text-property (point) 'org-hd-marker)) pp)
    (with-current-buffer (marker-buffer m)
      (goto-char m)
      (while (re-search-forward
	      (save-excursion (org-end-of-subtree)) t)
	(push (concat (match-string 2) ": " (match-string 3)) pp)))
    (pop-to-buffer "*org properties*")
    (mapcar (lambda(p) (insert p "\n")) pp)
    (other-window 1)))
