Long hours, passion for the job and in-depth industry knowledge were the reasons the newest Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) Property Manager of the Year stood out amongst the crowd, said the new recipient.

Last week Ranita Patel from Place Newmarket in Queensland was awarded the REIA's ‘Terri Scheer Residential Property Manager of the Year’ award at the eight REIA National Awards for Excellence, held in The Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra.

According to the young property manager, it was her industry knowledge that won her the prestigious award.

“I think it was for the passion and the knowledge I have for the industry,” she told Residential Property Manager.

“I live and breathe the industry. I do long hours, probably a minimum of 10 hours a day, but I am always researching and reading up about what people are doing in the industry outside of hours.”

Ms Patel has been in the industry for seven years, working as a property manager for the last six. She has been a finalist at the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) Awards for Excellence for the last three years. This year she was given the top prize.

“It was my first time at the REIA awards, so I really didn’t think it would be me,” she said.

“It was such a big surprise, I wasn’t expecting it at all.”

According to Mario Sultana, the principal at Place Newmarket in Queensland, Ms Patel is an integral part of the Place Newmarket team.

“Ranita’s win is a great reflection of our property management business and our belief to always give our customers unbelievable service,” he said.

“She thoroughly deserves the award and it a great recognition of her hard work and enthusiasm.

“Ranita has grown our rent roll significantly in the last 12 months and is an important part of our team.”
