“More than 250 real estate professionals from across Australia converged on Perth last night indicating just how strong our industry is,” Kelly says.
“Winners were recognised from most of the states and territories highlighting it is not just the larger states and metropolitan cities taking home the awards.”

, won Buyers' Agent of the Year after taking out the State title at the REINSW Awards for Excellence gala dinner in September last year.
NSW's second winner was John Cunningham, founder of
Cunninghams Real Estate
, who was awarded the prestigious President’s Award.
Presented this year by Kelly, the President's Award recognises significant contribution made by an individual to the real estate profession.
“In the last 12 months alone, John has done more for our industry than most agents will ever do in their entire career,” Kelly says.
“He has been a driving force behind the Pathway to Professionalism program and has fought for education and training reforms in his home state of NSW. He is the best of the best and a well deserving winner.”
The ACT saw outstanding results with winners in four categories, including Colliers International (ACT) which took out Commercial Agency of the Year and Rupert Cullen of Colliers International (ACT) taking home Commercial Property Manager of the Year.
