On Friday May 21 more than 400 Western Australian real estate professionals attended the REIWA Awards for Excellence at Crown Perth.

REIWA CEO Neville Pozzi said WA real estate professionals who demonstrated the best practice and who went above and beyond for their clients, the industry and community were recognised.

“Unlike other award programs which focus on transactions, statistics and profit, the REIWA Awards for Excellence are awarded purely on merit following deliberation by a comprehensive judging process,” he said.

“In the last 12 months we have seen a dramatic turnaround in the WA property market. The bottom of the market has come and gone, and we are now observing strong market conditions while simultaneously experiencing a shortage of housing stock.”

Mr Pozzi said the awards helped shine a light on the impressive service REIWA agents were providing the WA community, and now more than ever, Western Australians were relying on their local real estate agents for advice, assistance and expert local knowledge.

The winners will represent the state in the Real Estate Institute of Australia’s National Awards for Excellence next year.
