Agents from top independent real estate brands across Australia and New Zealand gathered in Sydney on Monday 24th February for the annual Real Estate Results Network (RERN) Kickstart conference followed by the 14th Australasian Real Estate Results Awards (ARERA).
Kickstart was an engaging and motivating day for our team with speakers including Kamal Sarma, Todd Conklin and Sarah Di Lorenzo among many others.
The awards evening closed out the day with a range of awards to honour the top performers in the network who continue to inspire their peers in the industry. The prizes were shared between 24 agencies, with Cunninghams taking out awards for Metro Agency of the Year and Marketing Agency of the Year! For the individual awards, Georgi Bates also took out Australasian Agent of the Year, Bree Higgins was named Manager of the Year and Andrew Lutze was inducted into the RER Network’s Hall of Fame. Congratulations to all!
The Bollywood themed event was part of the RERN’s annual conference, and its leader, Michael Sheargold, said the winning margins were very tight.
“This year, we received an exceptionally high number of nominations in each of the categories, which made the judging process extremely difficult, particularly with the standard of competition being raised even higher than in previous years,” Mr Sheargold said.
Member agencies and their teams were praised by Michael for responding to the challenging conditions of the market in 2019, with customers demanding a higher level of service than ever before.
Mr Sheargold congratulated all of the winners for their achievements last year.
“The ARERA’s are highly regarded within the industry as peer-nominated awards, and all our winning agents and agencies should be proud of this incredible achievement,” he said.
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.
