The Real Estate Institute of Queensland has announced its 2017 Awards for Excellence finalists, representing the best in the Queensland real estate profession for the year.

This year’s Awards attracted a record number of entrants, reflecting the growing strength in the market.

Winners will be announced at the gala Awards dinner at Brisbane City Hall on 4 February 2017.

REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said the calibre of entrants was stellar and she congratulated all entrants on standing out against a particularly strong field.

“Our members represent the highest standards of the real estate profession and they set the benchmark for success,” Ms Mercorella said.

“Queensland’s real estate market has shown modest growth this year, especially in comparison with the southern states, and as a result our members have had to be more efficient, more skilled and more focused than ever before to achieve commercial and professional success,” she said.

“Our judges have been highly impressed with the quality of entrants and we are looking forward to announcing the winners at our gala event,” Ms Mercorella said.

The REIQ Auctioneer of the Year winner was announced earlier in the year to enable our winner and runner-up to compete at the Australasian Auctioneer of the Year event in September. The winner of this category for 2017 REIQ Auctioneer of the Year is Justin Nickerson.

A shortlist of finalists for the media category, Best Real Estate Report, is not yet available as entries close on December 16.  

The 2017 REIQ Awards for Excellence winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 4 February, 2017.

Tickets are on sale today and can be purchased at
