The Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) has welcomed a property management director to its state-based board of directors.
Renee Reynolds, director of Release Property Management Geelong, has been appointed to the Victorian Institute’s board of directors, voted in to the role reserved for an agent from the regional zone.
Ms Reynolds opened Release Property Management in 2007, though she has been part of Geelong’s local real estate industry for more than 20 years.
Over that time she’s collected a number of accolades for her work in the community, including the awards of 2016 Geelong medium business of the year, 2013 Geelong small business of the year, and REIA’s 2014 small residential agency of the year.
Her long involvement with REIV includes stints serving as both chair and secretary of the organisation’s former Geelong division.
In 2008 Ms Reynolds was named young achiever of the year by the REIV’s Geelong division, followed by property manager of the year in 2011, 2012, and 2013, and agency of the year in 2012.
Ms Reynolds said she was pleased to be elected to the board, and hopes her work with REIV will make an impact on the industry.
“I represent the regional vote and look forward to the REIV having more recognition and support from the regional members,” Ms Reynolds said.
She joins Richard Simpson and Megan Mander, who were the metropolitan appointees from the latest round of voting, which concluded at the end of August. Their terms, which extend for a period of three years, commence on 1 October.
The trio join a board that is currently on the hunt for a new CEO following the announcement of current CEO Gil King’s retirement at the end of this year.
