Westpac aims to improve the financial education of real estate agents through a closer relationship with the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW), the bank announced this week.
“Through this new partnership, Westpac has the ability to provide specialist expertise to REINSW members across the state to help manage their turnover more efficiently and to unlock potential growth,” said Westpac national industry leader for real estate, Jason Roach.
Westpac and REINSW have already joined to provide a series of networking lunches, and the bank said it plans to provide experts to present issues of interest to the REINSW membership.
“Often business owners are completely focused on day-to-day management and miss opportunities to build their business further and faster,” Westpac state general manager NSW commercial Steve Kemp said. “Our real estate agency team takes the time to work with owners to develop sustainable growth strategies using the potential in their balance sheets.”
REINSW president Wayne Stewart said that member agencies would benefit from the relationship with Westpac.
“Improving our members’ skills, education and overall professionalism is a critical activity that the Westpac-REINSW partnership contributes positively towards,” Mr Stewart said.
