A new industry awards initiative from the REA Group will take the stage this year to highlight the best partners from property and media
REA Group says it will be the first time the most innovative, community-minded and highest-achieving individuals and businesses across the property and media industries will be honoured in an awards program.
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.
REA Group says the categories have been designed to encompass the entire property industry (residential, commercial, project developers) as well as those working in media.
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.
