The 2013 annual Australasian Real Estate Results Awards (ARERA’s) were held at Luna Park in Sydney on February 12th, unearthing some of the most talented agents across Australia and New Zealand.

The annual Awards recognise Real Estate Results Network Members for their outstanding achievements in the real estate industry, putting a strong focus on service excellence, community achievement and innovation.

Our Senior Property Manager, Kerrie Walker was crowned Property Manager of the Year at the awards. We’re pretty chuffed about winning this award and feel nobody deserved it more than Kerrie. Her dedication and commitment to her landlords and tenants is second to none and this truely shows each and every day.

Real Estate Results Network founder and CEO Michael Sheargold congratulated the finalists and winners on not only surviving 2012, but thriving during a challenging year.

Mr Sheargold said that the results of the independent agencies were a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of small business owners through various market conditions.

“The awards are contested by the nation’s best of the best independent agencies and performers and again we were impressed by the high level of competence and quality shown by agencies and the people behind the brands,” he said.

“The ARERA Awards is a reminder of how successful agencies can be without the constraints of the once traditionally secure franchise real estate model, and shows how agencies which are owned and managed by families and have a strong code of ethics, underpinned by old school values can thrive in this industry.”

Real Estate Results Network consists of independent agencies, agents, property managers and support teams, all competing for these accolades. There are some 35 agencies and more than 800 individual Members throughout Australia and New Zealand.

A great night was had by all at Luna Park as we rode the ferris wheel, screamed our lungs out on the rides and enjoyed a delicious meal and dancing  in the ballroom.
