Cunninghams is celebrating this week after being awarded two Agency awards and winners in four individual categories at the 15th annual Australasian Real Estate Results Awards (ARERAs) held virtually via Zoom on Monday night.
The ARERA’s recognise the achievements of the top performing independent real estate agents throughout Australia and across the Tasman and is run by the Real estate Results Network (RERN) – Australasia’s leading network of independent agencies with more than 1400 members.
Cunninghams rose above the highly competitive field of finalists, to win two of the biggest awards on offer, Agency of the Year and Marketing Agency of the Year. This was the second year in a row the Cunninghams team have won both major awards, which is a huge achievement once again, in what was an outstanding field of nominees.
Cunninghams Managing Director John Cunningham has congratulated his entire team on these major awards as well as the four individual award winners:
James Haywood – NSW Agent of the Year
Sam Raso – Sales Performer of the Year
Kelly Blake – Manager of the Year
Sabrina Turner – Client Service Manager of the Year
“The strength of our team as individuals as well as a cohesive team has been recognised, and I couldn’t be prouder of our entire team.”
“The ARERA’s represent the peak achievement within the region’s independent property sector and after a year full of highs and lows, the field of finalists was by far the finest and most competitive I’ve seen.”
John continued: “The fact that we have been named winners in two major categories and also awarded individual awards in four categories demonstrates the drive, commitment and professionalism of our whole team.”
These awards come off the back of some impressive positions in the REB Top 50 Sales Offices in Australia, where Cunninghams was recognised and placed 9th, moving up ten places from the previous year. Just last week the business was also recognised by Real Estate Australia (REA Group) at their annual AREA Awards as one of the top 3 finalists in Australian Agency of the year. It has been a big year for the team and 2021 looks like it is going to continue along the same lines.
This year the awards evening was presented in a Covid-safe way via Zoom, and followed the Network’s Kickstart program held last week, a Members-only conference providing an opportunity for principals, agents and managers to network, share and learn from leading industry experts.
RERN is Australasia’s leading network of independent agencies, with more than 1400 principals and agents who are members throughout Australia and New Zealand. The Network offers expert coaching support and services to help agencies and their teams reach their full potential, and it has assisted hundreds of principals to improve their real estate business model for success.
