This year REINSW has partnered with Assistance Dogs Australia (ADA). ADA are more than just helping individuals; they make stronger communities.

ADA train and place unique dogs with Australians in unique situations. With 1 in 5 people living in Australia with a disability, founders, Hannie and Robert saw a need for specially trained four-legged friends. 

Today, ADA has maintained its family values, with Hannie, Robert and their sons Andrew and Gavin, still passionately involved with the organisation. Their free-to-client assistance dogs provide independence, self-esteem, improved health and relationships to individuals and families — resulting in stronger and more successful communities. Learn more about Assistance Dogs Australia.

As part of this partnership, REINSW will contribute a portion of funds raised at events to ADA, including:

  • Novice Auctioneers Competition (NAC) | The NAC is a platform for participants to try their hand at auctioneering. Each participant auctions a luxury item of their choice with funds raised in the heats and the final going directly to ADA.
  • Women in Real Estate (WIRE) conference | Every year, agents from across the State gather in Sydney for REINSW's WIRE conference. With speakers including Em Rusciano, Leigh Sales and Mia Freedman, WIRE is a highly anticipated event that delivers practical industry insights, strategies for success and professional and personal inspiration. REINSW donates $10 from each ticket sale to ADA, plus funds raised at the event charity auction.

  • Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner | REINSW's Awards for Excellence program recognises the best, boldest and brightest the real estate industry has to offer. It is real estate's peak awards program, based on true merit and contribution to the industry. REINSW contributes $10 from the sale of each ticket for the Awards Gala Dinner to ADA.
