Last week saw the Real Estate Institute of Australia celebrate those working within its industry at the 13th National Awards for Excellence in Sydney.
Fresh and innovative approaches to the industry, as well as passion and long-term dedication to real estate were those attributes most lauded in the celebrations, which were sponsored by view.com.au and attended by its CEO, Enzo Raimondo.
“Real estate continues to be one of the most rewarding, challenging and visible industries in Australia, which is why it was a privilege for view.com.au to again sponsor the REIA National Awards for Excellence 2018 and recognise the finalist and winners from each category and State at this year’s awards,” said Mr Raimondo.
“All of the individuals and agencies nominated are leaders in their field and are contributing to improve the profession in all the specialist areas including digital innovation.”
The entire country was represented during the night, with Western Australia dominating many of the awards. David Airey, managing director of Airey Real Estate in WA, took away the President’s Award for 2018, while Mint Real Estate in Claremont enjoyed both the Small Residential Agency of the Year and Residential Salesperson of the Year awards.
“We saw winners from right across the board, which highlights that our profession is not just about our largest states and cities but has outstanding achievers everywhere, ” said REIA President Malcolm Gunning.
