REIWA Presents Awards for Excellence Local Agents to Represent WA in National Competition

On the evening of Thursday 18 September at Crown Perth, the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia celebrated its annual Awards for Excellence with a Gala Dinner attended by more than 300 agents and staff.

State Attorney General and Minister for Commerce, the Hon. Michael Mishin MLC, was guest of honour.

REIWA President David Airey opened the night by thanking the numerous business sponsors and award nominees.

“These awards are not based on sales volume, number of listings or dollar value of turnover, more importantly they recognise excellence in service delivery, professionalism, marketing or community engagement,” Mr Airey said.

State winners of the REIWA Awards for Excellence can now put their names forward as the WA entries to the National Awards for Excellence held in March next year and which Perth will be hosting in 2015.
