The Real Estate Institute of Australia’s (REIA) National Awards for Excellence were held at Parliament House last night, where the industry's top performers were awarded for their contribution to real estate.

Queensland dominated the night, walking away with six of the sixteen awards.

Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) CEO Anton Kardash said the strong Queensland showing was further evidence of the high calibre of the state’s real estate practitioners.

“Six out of 13 finalists representing the REIQ and Queensland won a national award last night, which is one of the best results in recent memory,” he said.

“Not only does this result reflect the professionalism of those working in real estate in Queensland, but also the integrity of the REIQ’s own awards program, which includes a judging panel with all finalists.”
