REINSW 2022 Awards for Excellence finalists announced

The REINSW 2022 Awards for Excellence will resume being held live this year at the Excellence Gala Dinner and will offer 23 categories of awards, covering both agencies and individuals.

The Announcement:

The Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW) has announced the finalists for its annual Awards for Excellence.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the prestigious Awards for Excellence is the most respected competition within the real estate profession, acknowledging exceptional performances across the industry.

REINSW President, Peter Matthews, said while it is always important to recognise outstanding work, it is particularly significant this year because of the upheaval caused by the catastrophic floods as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It has been another difficult year for many agents both personally and professionally, and we want to pay tribute to the amazing efforts by our members and the resilience they showed during 2021/22,” he said.

“All the finalists should feel very proud, it is validation of a job well done in difficult and unprecedented circumstances.”

“The Awards for Excellence is an opportunity to highlight our industry’s greatest successes and most outstanding achievements. It offers much-deserved recognition for the agents who work tirelessly in their profession and for theircommunities.”

The Awards for Excellence offers 23 categories covering both agencies and individuals.

After being held as a virtual event over the past two years, we’re excited to announce that the Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner is back live and in person this year. It is scheduled to take place Thursday, 8 September 2022 at The Star Entertainment Centre in Sydney.

There will be information released about ticket purchases during the next few weeks. You can keep up to date with the latest information about the Awards for Excellence by visiting
