A new industry awards event run by Australia’s leading property industry website will take the stage this year to highlight the best partners from property and media.
REA Group announced the awards program will for the first time honour the most innovative, community-minded and highest-achieving individuals and businesses across the property and media industries.
The inaugural Annual REA Excellence Awards (AREAs), to be held in spring will be hosted by a surprise celebrity.
Contenders for the awards will have their submissions reviewed by an independent judging panel and some categories will include a consumer voting component.
The awards will include categories such as: Innovation, Community, Service and Marketing Excellence. Categories have been designed to encompass the entire property industry (residential, commercial, project developers) as well as those working in media.
REA Group Chief Executive Officer Tracey Fellows says every day her company interacts with people who are doing amazing things in the property and media industries.
“This might be how they are contributing to their local communities, delivering exceptional service to their market and clients, or how they are using technology in new and innovative ways,” Fellows says.
“We feel it’s our responsibility to recognise and celebrate our outstanding industry partners, and what better way to do that than with a new awards program.
“The launch of the AREAs is an exciting new step in our mission to honour excellence in both property and media,” she says.
