REIQ update from the CEO: 27th July 2022
Today, the REIQ is proud to release the results of our fundraising campaigns to support the people and agencies affected by the February flood disaster. Thanks to our member agents, partners, sponsors and staff, we delivered $70,000 worth of direct support to flood-impacted neighbourhoods and raised funds for inCommunity, Beddown, Q Shelter and flood-damaged agencies to help those affected by the disaster. I am truly humbled by the way the wider Queensland real estate community came together to contribute towards this massive industry effort. You can find out more here.
Nominations close this Friday for the REIQ Awards for Excellence. This is the last chance for you or your agency to be recognised for your outstanding achievements and contributions to the sector and the community. We also have performance-based categories that recognise and focus on outstanding sales performances by agencies and individuals. The REIQ Awards for Excellence is one of the most anticipated events on the Queensland real estate calendar, so I encourage you to nominate and join us at the gala awards spectacular on 29 October at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Lastly, our New Tenancy Laws Training events across Queensland wrapped up last week. A big thank you to our team who travelled across the state to provide those in property management with practical and comprehensive information about the most significant changes to rental legislation in more than a decade. Those who missed the events can download the accompanying toolkit and purchase a copy of the event video here.
