One Ray White commercial agent from Victoria has been recognised for his contribution to the industry, after he was judged to have gone above and beyond in pursuit of service, ethics and results.
Brett Diston of Ray White Nunawading in Victoria has taken home the top industry award for Commercial Salesperson of the Year at the REIA National Awards for Excellence 2019 held last week.
REIA president Adrian Kelly said the recognition is an important part of the make-up of the industry.
“Real estate professionals from across Australia converged on Perth last night indicating just how strong our industry is,” Mr Kelly said.
“Winners were recognised from most of the states and territories, highlighting it is not just the larger states and metropolitan cities taking home the awards but there were outstanding achievers from everywhere.”
Mr Kelly said the national award recognised excellence in agency practice and covered the commercial sector, including small, medium and large agencies.
He said the judging is comprehensive.
“This award was not judged on sales figures but recognises and rewarded our high-performing agent who had gone the extra mile in pursuit of service, ethics and results.”
Mr Diston said he was thrilled to have been recognised.
Mr Diston won the national award for the top Commercial Salesperson for 2019, after winning the state award last year.
“This is a career highlight for me to be recognised and awarded Australia’s best commercial salesperson in a challenging market,” he said.
“It was a privilege to be awarded Victoria’s top commercial salesperson in 2018 but an absolute honour to receive 2019 Australia’s commercial salesperson.”
