REA Group launches industry awards

by 2 comments

REA Group has announced a unique awards program that will honour the most innovative, community-minded and highest-achieving individuals and businesses in the real estate industry.

The inaugural Annual REA Excellence Awards (AREAs), to be held in spring this year and hosted by a surprise celebrity, will be submission-based and reviewed by an independent judging panel. There will also be a consumer voting component for some awards.

The awards will include categories such as: Innovation, Community, Service and Marketing Excellence. Categories have been designed to encompass the entire property industry (residential, commercial, project developers) as well as those working in the media.

“Every day we interact with people from the property and media industries who are doing amazing things,” REA Group CEO Tracey Fellows said.

“This might be how they are contributing to their local communities, delivering exceptional service to their market and clients, or how they are using technology in new and innovative ways,” Ms Fellows said.

“We feel it’s our responsibility to recognise and celebrate our outstanding industry partners, and what better way to do that than with a new awards program. The launch of the AREAs is an exciting new step in our mission to honour excellence in both property and media.”

Not – I schedule the time into my calendar in advance
