The region’s top performing independent agencies and individuals have come together for the 14th annual Australasian Real Estate Results Awards (ARERAs).
Hosted by industry coaching and training body Real Estate Results Network (RERN), this year’s ARERAs were more hotly contested than ever, with a large number of nominations received from across Australia and New Zealand.
Winners from 36 award categories were announced at a ‘Bollywood’ themed gala event, held at Merivale’s The Ivy Ballroom.
The event was timed to coincide with KickStart – RERN’s annual conference, which took place over the two days prior at Sydney Hilton Hotel.
A total of 24 agencies were represented amongst the winners, taking out awards for categories that included Agency of the Year, Agent of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, and Rising Star of the Year.
Real estate industry expert Michael Sheargold heads up RERN, the collective designed to provide specialist industry training, support, mentorship and resources for real estate agencies.
Mr Sheargold said 2020 had seen a huge number of extremely high-quality nominations and that the winning margins were very tight.
“This year, we received an exceptionally high number of nominations in each of the categories, which made the judging process extremely difficult, particularly with the standard of competition being raised even higher than in previous years,” Mr Sheargold said.
“Our member agencies and their teams really brought their A-games in responding to the challenging conditions of the market, with customers demanding a higher level of service than ever before.
Mr Sheargold congratulated all of the winners on their individual achievements and said he joined the rest of the network in celebrating their performance.
“All our winning agents and agencies should be proud of this incredible achievement,” Mr Sheargold said.
Real Estate Results Network (RERN) represents more than 1400 principals and agents who throughout Australia and New Zealand.
