Last Saturday night, South Australia’s real estate professionals lived the dream at a spectacular night hosted by the Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) at the 2016 News Corp Australia realestate.com.au Awards for Excellence in Real Estate.
The 2016 Awards celebrated an offbeat tea party modeled on an enchanted evening theme and it was a tea party like no other at the Adelaide Convention Centre hosted for the first time by Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello. And this particular tea party was sold out – with a record number of categories, nominations and finalists.
Real estate professionals from all over South Australia were acknowledged and applauded for their passion and dedication to their clients and consumers.
REISA CEO, Greg Troughton praised the incredible depth of talent, professionalism and dedication to the real estate profession.
“This is the most highly recognised award event for real estate professionals in South Australia. It takes real commitment and dedication to serving the needs of real estate clients to be successful in this profession and the finalists and winners here tonight are outstanding ambassadors for the profession”.
“The Awards celebrate everything that is strong and relevant within the real estate industry, and as such, they are a fantastic showcase to the Government and community that we are doing it right and that we celebrate excellence and achievement in the best way possible.”
“It is a privilege to be a part of this stunning night and to witness so many real estate professionals – and their families and colleagues – receive the recognition that they so richly deserve” Mr Troughton said.
Mr Neil Ottoson was awarded the Sir Robert Torrens Award posthumously to recognise commitment and service to the profession. Mr Steven Kemp was also awarded the Sir Robert Torrens Award to recognise commitment and service to the profession.
A Life Membership of REISA was awarded to Mr Anthony Toop.
