AUSTRALASIAN real estate awards have hit home for Hoamz.  The Queenstown realtor won “New Zealand agency of the year” at last week’s Australasian Real Estate Awards in Sydney, Australia.

It also won “community achievement” for its role in raising $275,000 for Shotover Primary’s playground through selling a Shotover Country home.  The Roaring Twenties-themed awards were hosted by the Real Estate Results Network.

Representing more than 1200 principals and agents, it’s Australiasia’s leading network of independent agencies.  Hoamz was also finalist for “regional agency” while director Brendan Quill was an “auctioneer” finalist.  Quill attended the awards with consultant Richie Heap.

It was Hoamz’s first year in the awards and marketing boss Sue Charlesworth says the wins were unexpected due to the high caliber of entrants.  The applications drew on all elements of the business, from sales results to customer satisfaction and management.

“It was a huge team effort and we couldn’t be happier.”
