The pathway to professionalism was the focus of the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales’ sixth annual summit, held in Sydney on Friday (15 September 2018).
REINSW President Leanne Pilkington said The Future Is Now Summit saw a select group of 150 real estate agents come together to discuss one of the most significant changes to the industry and the key to its future success.
“The Real Estate Institutes are spearheading the push towards formal, legal recognition of the real estate industry as a profession,” Ms Pilkington said.
“The summit explored the themes of why professionalism is the way forward, what a professional agent looks like, when the changes will happen and how agents can support the initiative.”
The speaker line-up included John Cunningham, REINSW Immediate Past President and key driver of the pathway to professionalism, Peter Matthews, REINSW Deputy President, Peter Hanscomb, CEO of Belle Property, Chris Mourd, Head of Franchise Network at McGrath, Chris Hanley, Director at First National Byron Bay as well as Veronica Morgan, Principal of Good Deeds Property Buyers and Caroline Bolderston, Founder of Being Bold Coaching.
