Oh what a night! REISA recognises real estate’s finest

14 Oct 13

South Australia’s most highly acclaimed real estate professionals were recognised last week in a spectacular night hosted by the Real Estate Institute of South Australia at the annual News Australia Awards for Excellence in Real Estate.

The Adelaide Entertainment Centre was the perfect place to host the sold out show in a Luna Fantasy Spectacular compared by Australian actor Shane Jacobson.

Winners from all over the State, excelling in a range of real estate specialties, were rewarded for their hard work and commitment to client service.

Announcing the winners, Mr Greg Troughton, CEO, REISA said that the Awards for Excellence looked at the entrants’ ‘complete package’ throughout the judging and it was a tight contest to determine the winners.

“This is the most highly recognised award program in South Australia. It takes real commitment, drive and ambition to be successful in this industry and the winners here tonight are outstanding ambassadors for the profession” he said.

The Awards set the benchmarks for the entire profession as they examine every part of an individual and agency’s business. It’s more than just dollars and numbers. It really is a broad approach to the business with entrants being judged on innovation, marketing, sales acumen and community service. 

“Winners express the kind of innovative and dynamic approach to business that helps to set benchmarks and raise the professional profile of real estate practitioners.”

“The Award program aims to highlight the status and integrity of our profession in the eyes of the public, government and industry and reward those members of the profession who have elevated the good name and status of real estate,” Mr Troughton said.

“The winners tonight have worked hard for their success and we congratulate them wholeheartedly and know they will carry these titles with great pride.”

Mr Robin Matters was awarded the Sir Robert Torrens Award, real estate’s prestigious Award, to recognise commitment and service to the profession.

In addition to recognising the winners, a Life Membership of REISA was awarded to Brett McMutrie.
