Our winners represent excellence in service, creativity, determination, differentiation and commitment. They were selected for their demonstrated achievements of the highest level in their category. 



WOODROW WEIGHT AWARD
For outstanding service to REINSW and to real estate agency practice

The prestigious Woodrow Weight Award for outstanding service to the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales and the profession has been awarded to Knight Frank North Sydney Managing Director Kymbal Dunne. REINSW President Christian Payne paid tribute to Dunne’s focus, drive, passion and love of doing things differently when presenting the top honour at the 2012 REINSW Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner on Saturday, 13 October 2012.

The Woodrow Weight Award is named after the legendary REINSW President and first Australian ever to be elected World President of the International Real Estate Federation.

“As a dedicated and active member of the Real Estate Institute’s Commercial Chapter Committee, Kymbal has not only invested heavily in his own career, but also in the careers of his peers – working hard to improve the lot of commercial property professionals in NSW, as well as for the benefit of the industry overall,” Mr Payne said.

“Since the very beginning of his career, Kymbal has thought of real estate as the 'profession of professionals'. He has supported industry education and training as a key way to move forward and develop a rewarding and fulfilling career.

“Kymbal is a born negotiator and problem solver, and gains enormous satisfaction by coming up with creative solutions for problems that other agencies can’t solve.

“He is a member who has never been afraid to stand up and speak their mind, and then immediately pitch in to help make a difference.

“Without a doubt, Kymbal is one of the most principled people you will ever come across – both in his professional and personal life. He holds honesty and integrity in the highest regard, and believes wholeheartedly in employing both of these in the real estate industry.

“Kymbal is a seven-time winner of REINSW Awards for Excellence Project Marketing, 2002-07 and 2009. He is also a winner of the Commercial Sales & Leasing award in 2006 and 2010.

“In June 2011 Knight Frank acquired m2 Office Leasing which Kymbal co-founded in 2001 and took on the role of Managing Director of Knight Frank North Sydney.”

“With over 30 years experience, Kymbal is a highly deserving winner of the 2012 Woodrow Weight Award.”
