REIACT hosted its annual awards night, where Independent Property Group took out seven awards, reflecting the commitment and calibre of its 200 staff.
Independent Property Group (IPG) has dominated this year’s Real Estate Institute of the ACT’s annual Awards for Excellence taking home seven awards including Large Agency of the Year.
Independent’s CEO, Ms Kylie Dennis, said this year’s success was even more rewarding given the significant transformation that has happened in the company over the past 12 months.
“2021 has been a real turning point for Independent with a new leadership group taking the company forward across sales, property management and strata,” Ms Dennis said.
“These wins reflect the commitment and calibre of our 200 staff and I want to thank all of them for their contribution”
