From the CEO: 8th September 2021

The countdown is on to our industry’s night of nights after we announced the finalists for the 2021 REIQ Awards for Excellence this week. We received a record number of nominations this year and I wish to thank everyone who took the time to enter while extending my congratulations to the finalists. The winners will be announced at the gala awards night on the 23rd of October on the Gold Coast. This will be a wonderful night for us to join together, celebrate the achievements of our profession and recognise our top stars.

The REIQ is on the lookout for two new board members – a young member director (under 35 years) and a female regional member director. If you are an eligible member and would like to get involved and contribute to the success of the REIQ, I encourage you to nominate. We’re also seeking recommendations for Life Membership of the REIQ, granted to individuals recognised for their long, continuous and outstanding meritorious service to our organisation.

Finally, Season II of the REIQ Property Brief podcast has been launched, featuring our new host Rob Doorey and beginning with some fascinating insights from Peter Lynch from Aon about the risks of cyber crime to agencies. You can listen here.
