The group has been tasked with examining and considering the critical elements necessary to qualify as a profession. The 5 Es – ethics, education, experience, examination and entity – as set down by the Professional Standards Authority (see page 28) will form the basis of the group’s terms of reference. Some initial smaller committees have been formed from the group to consider some of the Es – ethics, education and examination. A further committee will look at the financial ramifications of professional recognition. The findings of each committee will be submitted for broader industry input and feedback before forming part of the framework for an application to the Professional Standards Authority.
This journey is critical. As an industry, we must become viewed as trusted advisors. We need the real estate industry to be known for professionalism, and agents valued for their expert knowledge and reputation for providing honest, excellent service to consumers. Only by committing to the evolution of our industry into a profession can we make this happen.
I look forward to working with every REINSW member to make this vision a reality.
