The Australian real estate industry has a host of business awards for successful real estate practices, buyers’ agents, rental agencies, auctioneers and leading real estate practitioners.
There are state-based business awards, such as the REINSW Awards, and national awards including the REIA National Awards for Excellence (Real Estate Institute of Australia), Real Estate Business Awards (REB Awards) and the AREAs (Annual Real Estate Excellence Awards), as well as the REB Women in Real Estate Awards (Real Estate Business).
Real estate industry awards are highly competitive. Not surprisingly when you consider the number of real estate agencies, buyers’ agents, auctioneers and rental agencies around the country.
The good news is, however, that all the real estate industry business awards have a range of entry categories, so whatever the size of your agency, its type and its location, there’s a category for your business.
Becoming a finalist or even the winner of your category is a significant accolade that’s to be celebrated. It adds prestige to your business and rewards staff for their efforts in growing the business. Plus there’s the excitement and glamour of the awards night, which is always a gala event.
Real estate businesses in Australia work hard in a competitive space so it’s understandable that many overlook the recording of their milestones and successes over the year. Keeping note of achievements in case studies is a great way to change this. It’s not just the number or the value of sales that are important for an award entry; the judges of real estate business awards are looking for well-rounded businesses.
For instance, judges want to know about your contributions to your local community; they want to know how you develop your team. Initiatives such as training programs for staff, introduction of a new tailor-made IT system, mentoring of new starters, launch of a new branch, fundraising for a local charity: these are all evidence of your business’ commitment to growth and the development of your team.
If you’re entering real estate industry awards – REIA National Awards for Excellence, REB Awards, the AREAs, REB Women in Real Estate Awards, or state-based awards – give yourself sufficient time to write your entry, and include time to edit and proofread your award submission.
