ABOUT REAL ESTATE BUSINESS


Market intelligence that Australia’s real estate principals and agents count on.

Australia’s residential real estate industry (the rental, hiring and real estate services sector) incorporates over 10,000 of the most innovative and dynamic SMEs in the country, and supports the employment of over 76,000 agents and 218,000 Australians (or 1.7% of the total workforce).

Since 2009 Australia’s real estate agencies, principals and agents have trusted REB (Real Estate Business) for information and insights critical to their business.

Across a dedicated suite of digital assets, including web, mobile, podcasts, social, newsletters and broadcast channels – complemented by awards, events and benchmarking – REB has championed the growth and development of Australia’s residential real estate sales sector.

In an industry under competitive tension through digitisation, disintermediation and challenging markets, REB provides leadership, insights, recognition and interpretation to keep agents engaged, driven and inspired.

In particular, REB’s rankings, including the REB Top 100 Agents, are universally recognised as the measure for success in real estate and are a highly coveted accolade that agents across the nation aspire for.

ABOUT RPM


The information platform for Australia’s transforming property management industry.

Over two thirds of Australia’s 2.6 million investment properties are managed by residential property managers (or managing agents). Rapid technological innovation is assisting this industry, giving today’s property managers an array of tools that allow them to effectively manage more properties leveraging cutting edge technology.

Valued at $1.8 trillion and accounting for $95 billion in annual rent volume, the property management sector is critical to the national economy – and RPM (Residential Property Manager) is one of the sector’s biggest advocates.

Over 70 per cent of Australian property investors choose to manage their assets via property managers, and market share is growing.

Property managers and industry leaders rely on RPM for market intelligence, information and insights to be better informed, channelled via the connected www.realestatebusiness.com.au platform.

As technology evolves the property management sector, and changes the way property managers service their clients and add value, RPM remains driven to supporting the sector across a digital platform that includes web, rankings, mobile, social, newsletter and daily breaking coverage.
