The Domain Rising Star Awards aim to celebrate leadership, innovation and outstanding achievements of young real estate agents aged up to 30.

“In our business we see many bright and entrepreneurial young agents establishing themselves through hard work and skill” says Antony Catalano, Domain’s Chief Executive Officer. “The inaugural Domain Rising Star Award will recognise the best young agents in both Victoria and New South Wales – Australia’s biggest property markets. We are looking for the breakout talents who are bright, ambitious and can demonstrate they have made a real difference”.
