On 23rd March in Darwin the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA), held its seventh annual National Awards for Excellence.
Of the sixteen categories covering a wide range of real estate expertise there were three West Australian winners from among strong competition.
*-Provincial Real Estate in Kalamunda won the National Award for Medium Residential Agency of the Year.
*-Realmark took out the National Award for Communications.
*-Dee Marlow, from Marlow's Real Estate in Tuart Hill, won the National Award for Community Service.
REIWA President David Airey said this was a tremendous result for Western Australia, particularly as it had been a tough few years in the residential real estate sector.
"I'm delighted to see our state punching above its weight in a hotly contested national competition. Our local winners are hugely deserving of their respective wins," Mr Airey said.
Mr Airey said that Realmark had repeatedly proven itself to be an excellent communicator, as illustrated through its website, quality printed materials and customer relations.
"Provincial Real Estate has also shown itself to be a great success story in the hills area of Perth. It's a relatively new company with a small team of staff, terrific marketing and strong community connections. While Dee Marlow continues to inspire us all with her dedication, passion and astonishing fund raising success for the cause of autism," Mr Airey said.
Nominations to the National Awards for Excellence come forward from the winners in each category from the state-based competition, meaning that last night's winners have shown themselves to be champions in their field both in Perth and across the country.
