Queensland's best PM strikes again

11 February 2014 Steven Cross

One of the country’s best property managers has once again topped their state in the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) Awards for Excellence held last week.

Having won the REIQ Residential Property Manager of the Year in 2008, 2010 and 2012 (as well as being a finalist in 2009, 2011 and 2013), Katie Knight has taken the top spot in 2014.

Held for the first time in the refurbished Brisbane City Hall, over 500 finalists and guests – including the Queensland premier and the attorney-general – attended the REIQ’s 2014 Awards for Excellence gala event.

“Every year, our awards grow in stature and importance as agents and agencies seek to differentiate themselves in a competitive marketplace,” REIQ CEO Anton Kardash said.

“We had a number of first-time winners last night, with some having been finalists for many years before being named the state’s best.

“We also had winners who received their second or third consecutive award, which is testament to their commitment to the highest standards of business practice and customer satisfaction.”

Where is the biggest threat to agents in 2019?

3rd party lead generation companies
DIY models discounting sales commission
Prop-tech firms cutting out the agent value proposition
A yet unidentified proper disruptor – like Uber or Airbnb
None of the above. There is no threat.
