Real estate celebration recognises the best of the best

6 Oct 12

South Australia’s most highly acclaimed real estate professionals were recognised yesterday evening in a night of fun and celebration at the Advertiser Awards of Excellence, hosted by the Real Estate Institute of SA.

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, said that the Awards for Excellence strutinsed the entrant’s ‘complete package’ throughout the judging and right across the categories, it was a tight contest to determine the winners.

“The Awards program acknowledges the hard work that real estate professionals do, day in and day out, and the commitment they have their clients,” he said.

“Throughout the judging process, every element of an entrant’s business is analysed, from their performance over the past 12 months, right through to the work they do in the local community.”

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

Commenting on the atmosphere of the evening, Mr Troughton said that it was a celebration of the entire real estate profession.

“To have so many quality agencies represented at the Awards shows the professionalism of real estate in so many areas,” he said.

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