REIQ update from the CEO: 20th April 2022
I'm looking forward to travelling across Queensland and seeing you face to face as part of the REIQ's Zone Events. From the Far North to the Gold Coast, we're excited to be heading to the regions to give you the latest updates on industry issues and the legislative landscape affecting the profession. We'll also do a presentation on the new REIQ standard contract and Form 6 plus a small masterclass on lead generation, processing stock and easily preparing business plans. This is a great opportunity to network and mingle with your peak body over breakfast. Join your local event by clicking here.
Those involved with commercial sales should be aware that there will be changes to the REIQ commercial contract on 9 June 2022. To ensure everyone is across the changes, the REIQ is staging a free commercial contract changes webinar between 10am and 11am on Tuesday 3 May. Commercial sales agents and admin professionals who handle these contracts can register here to join the webinar.
Agency principals and business owners are invited to join our 'Employing Real Estate Industry Staff' webinar on Tuesday 26 April. REIQ General Counsel Katrina Beavon and Carter Newell Lawyers Partner Lara Radik will provide useful tips and help you avoid traps when hiring, managing and dismissing your staff under the Real Estate Industry Award. They'll also provide a practical demonstration on how RealworksHR helps you easily navigate employment status, wages and allowances while managing under-performance and dismissal in compliance with the Award.
