“The REB awards honour those who are driving the real estate profession to new heights,” Mr Mitchell said.

“We are delighted by REA Group’s decision to come on board as principal partner. To recognise this, we’ve decided to introduce a new award for Digital Presence of the Year,” he said.

“Sponsored by REA, this award will recognise those agents that are maximising their digital footprint across a number of platforms to win more listings and sell more properties – including their Agent Profile.”

Andrew Rechtman, REA Group executive general manager – residential, said the group is excited by the opportunity to support and recognise innovative Australian agents.

“We’re proud to support Australian real estate agents through this new partnership with the REB Awards.
