Walking the talk

22 Mar 17

The REISA Awards are South Australia’s Night of Nights for real estate professionals.

And in 2017 they will be bigger and better than ever before.

This year, we will be introducing two new concepts to the Awards to reinforce our commitment to making the real estate profession as transparent and relevant as possible.

REISA CEO, Greg Troughton said “I am very excited that the Awards are entering a new era of consumer experience and accountability.  2017 is the year of Walking the Talk and proving that you can rightfully call yourself the best of the best”

“The first new initiative will be the introduction of a mystery shopper.  While written submissions and interviews serve their purpose, we also want to find out what the consumer experiences out there on the ground.  We want to test whether real estate professionals actually provide the exceptional service that they say they do.”

“The second new initiative will be the introduction of a requirement for sales professionals to provide the judges with a list – not only of their sale prices – but also their appraisal prices for their portfolio.  Every agent considers themselves a local expert in their suburb or area.  Again, it is time to test this.  The agent who can best predict a sale price and then achieve that result has the right to call themselves a local expert.”

“Our Awards are recognised as the best real estate Awards in South Australia.  It’s time to take it to a new level.  And as we approach our 100 year Anniversary, what better way to acknowledge our standing and reputation in South Australia than making our Awards as good as they can possibly be?” Mr Troughton said.
