Submission, judging methodology outlined for REB Awards 2017

20 April 2017 by Staff Reporter 0 comments

REB has outlined its submission and judging methodology for the 2017 REB Awards, as it prepares to recognise the industry’s top performers across 27 award categories.

Using a submission scoreboard and strict assessment requirements, REB will apply an integrated methodology that involves a five-stage process, covering the nomination and submission of candidates, through to judging and shortlisting finalists, before identifying and announcing the winners.

The judging itself is also a multi-step process. All submissions are delivered to a panel of respected industry professionals and business leaders for assessment. The panel members include Brett Spencer, CEO of Stargate; Josh Frith, managing director of The Dubs; Vicki Stylianou, executive general manager if the Institute of Public Accountants; Innes Kirkwood, sales director of banking & financial services at Macquarie Group and Tim Gavan, director and head of real estate advisory services NSW at KPMG Australia.

The judges score each submission across a range of criteria, each applicable to its category description.

One winner will be announced per award category, with the awards presented at the REB Awards gala.

This year’s event, once again partnered by, will be held on Thursday, 6 July in the grand ballroom at ICC Sydney where real estate professionals will gather to recognise the industry’s top performers across 27 award categories.

Submissions and nominations are now open, but be quick as they close on Friday, 28 April. Click HERE to download the submission documents.
