Real estate agencies and agents have been recognised for excellence in the annual Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW) Gala Dinner held in Sydney.

The 17th awards presentation comprised 21 categories, including agencies large and small, community service, commercial and residential, as well as a number of new categories.

REINSW president Malcolm Gunning said the awards saw “unprecedented levels of interest” this year following a revamp of the categories, entry process and judging criteria.

“The changes made were welcomed by our members with a 50 per cent increase in the number of entries, signalling our most fiercely contested awards ever,” he said.

“The introduction of several new categories including Digital Marketing and Rising Star proved to be a great success without taking away from our more established categories.

“Morton & Morton took out Real Estate Agency – Large; Clarence White from McGrath Estate Agents won the Auctioneer Award for Excellence; and CBRE won Commercial Agency – Large for the fourth consecutive year,” he added.

Mr Gunning also said the John Greig OAM Community Service Award winner was Anastasia Whittaker of Bathurst Real Estate. Michael Holloway from Raine & Horne Double Bay earned the title of Rising Star; and Wilson Property Agents received the Digital Marketing crown.

“The prestigious Woodrow Weight Award, which recognises outstanding contribution to real estate agency practice was presented to auctionWORKS founder and auctioneer David Scholes,” he said.

“David is a true believer in the auction method of sale. He has set the benchmark for auctioneering over the past decade.

“David’s absolute passion for auctioneering led him to develop an online auction system. Launched a decade ago, the online system was the first of its kind. It was – and remains – truly innovative,” he added.
