The Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) has launched a Future Leaders Taskforce to empower the next generation of real estate professionals.
The Future Leaders Taskforce comprises eight of the brightest, and highly motivated real estate professionals in South Australia who will promote the industry and encourage young people to embark on a career in real estate.
REISA Chief Executive Officer, Barry Money said the future leaders would create a positive image for the entire sector.
“Real estate is at the heart of our state’s prosperity,” Mr Money said.
“Our Future Leaders are being tasked with the design of how our sector evolves.
“The real estate is a powerhouse industry, significantly contributing to the state’s revenue through taxation, conveyancing duties and other levies.
“We are a major employer in the state, our future leaders recognise this and will be engaging the government and other influencers in 2022 and beyond.”
The eight future leaders come from across the state and include Cameron Garry (City Realty), Mary Couros (In2realestate), Tom Taplin (Taplin Real Estate), Nicole Flavel (Turner Real Estate), Georgia Palasis (BDO), John Warnock (Listed Real Estate), Tara Stokes (Ouwens Casserly Real Estate) and Nicholas Coulls (NC Real Estate).
The Future Leaders Taskforce has already engaged with Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni, as well as the Department for Innovation and Skills on key strategies to support the recruitment pathway into the industry.
REISA Chair, Fairlie Delbridge said the future leaders would play an important role in enhancing the industry’s reputation.
“We want our future leaders to empower the younger generation to embrace change in the industry, to attract new talent to it and significantly improve the reputation of the profession by harnessing the incredible diversity and versatility of the up-and-coming generations,” Ms Delbridge said.
