“The awards provide a platform for women in the industry to showcase their talents and be role models for others,” Mr Neary said.
“It is a great way to recognise the industry’s high-performance female agents, property managers, BDMs and businesses.”
Mr Neary said there had been huge interest in the awards.
“The interest in these inaugural awards has been encouraging, with the avalanche of submissions setting a terrific precedent for the future of these awards across all of the categories.
“From national networks to individual agents, the REB Women in Real Estate Awards 2019 recognises excellence in real estate across the nation, and I’d like to congratulate all winners and finalists on their achievements.”
