Australia’s Leading Forms Execution Just Got Better

Media Release

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) has further enhanced their real estate forms platform (Realworks) by launching utility connection services into their world leading One Touch Execution (OTE) feature in partnership with Hutly Ltd.

The new feature enables real estate agencies to nominate their default utilities connection provider so that all tenants are offered utility connections in the process of signing a tenancy agreement.

“Automating the offer of connection services whilst a tenant is signing the tenancy agreement will ensure that the service is offered to every tenant at a critical point of the transaction, leading to more successful conversions and ultimately, more money flowing back to agencies via the referral fees,” says Josh Callaghan, Chief Operating Officer at the REIQ. “As an added bonus, it also removes any extra processes or manual entry of data that is prevalent with utilities connection referrals within the industry.”

Launching on 25 June 2020, the feature will include the following providers with more to be added in the coming weeks:

  • Direct Connect
  • Ray White HomeNow
  • Compare & Connect
  • MyConnect
  • Movinghub
  • Move me in
  • Foxie
  • Your porter

Compare & Connect CEO, Neil Saligrama says, “We are very excited about what this partnership means for REIQ consumers, as this enables a superior experience for all our Queensland consumers and Real Estate partners. Our Omni-channel approach (in partnership) with Hutly will be benefit everyone in our ecosystem.”

Compare & Connect is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated business which works with a wide range of participating providers to help thousands of customers connect their utility services. In fact, they remove the hassle out of just about everything, taking care of the whole process from start to finish through the connection lifecycle, and their services include electricity, gas, broadband, Pay TV, home phone, solar, water and more.

OTE is a world leading smart contract technology that enables fast, secure and compliant contracts for all parties involved. Real estate agencies can have a lease finalised and signed within minutes, ready for new tenants to pick up their keys and move in. REIQ partnered with Hutly on the provision of OTE within their forms platform, Realworks, which has generated over 26 million forms and contracts over the past 5 years and is the most used platform in real estate in Queensland.

“Hutly is focussed on delighting Realworks customers and this seamless experience saves an agency time and money whilst helping the tenant, leading to a better outcome for all,” adds Jeremy Hastings, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hutly.

“The REIQ is delighted to welcome all of these utility connection partners and their agencies to One Touch Execution. Our ultimate goal is to make transacting real estate simpler in Queensland  and OTE is an important first step in delivering tenants the execution experience they expect,” says Callaghan.

Here’s what others have to say

I found the REIQ Real Estate Licence Online Training Course was very good, easy to access, with brilliant course materials to read and assignments that really checked on your understanding of the details of every aspect of real estate practise. I enjoyed the course even though it took a few months due to working full time and found the support of the trainers and assessors very helpful and encouraging. Thanks REIQ Training team for helping me through!

I would like to share with you our experience that we have recently had through the REIQ Professional Development Team.We have had an awesome start to 2020 thanks to the great service provided by the REIQ Professional Development Team. Congratulations to Liz who started and finished her Certificate of Registration Course with the REIQ in December 2019. She loved the training, particularly the fact the trainers are experienced and still walk the talk and are active in real estate. Fast turnaround for marking of the assessments with help on hand by way of tutoring if needed meant she could get the Application to Office of Fair Trading for her registration happening quickly. We are thrilled, from start to finish with the course and application to Fair Trading she had her Certificate of Registration within 5 weeks. Really impressed with the training, help and support team REIQ gave Liz and the quick processing time by the Office of Fair Trading.We also regularly use the Property Management Support Service and General Agency Advice Service and believe it offers great value for our membership. The PMSS team provide practical advice by practising property management professionals who can relate to the everyday challenges property managers face.Keep up the good work Team REIQ,

I cannot recommend REIQ enough. The training, environment & staff were beyond my expectations. A special mention for Rachael who is a trainer at REIQ. Rachael knows her stuff. Her knowledge of the industry and style of delivery helped me get across the line and score my dream job.

I wasnt sure that I would get through the Agents and Licence course with everything I had on, made an attempt a year ago with another provider that went totally pear shaped but the REIQ course is structured in a way that made sense. While all of their trainers are experts in their field, they offer onsite student support on Tuesdays with Rachel providing the right advice and reassurance to get you there, even if you havent studied for a while. If you've ever wanted a career in Real Estate this is where you get started!

Recently completed my Licence course and thoroughly enjoyed the in-class tutorials taught by highly professional trainers with many years of industry experiences. The student support that is available every Tuesday is an extremely helpful resource, again with very experienced trainers to ensure you get the right advice the first time. REIQ has really structured the entire full Licence course end to end thoughtfully, especially when you’re new to this industry. Highly recommended!

Had Melissa Sullivan conducting the sales registration course for the past two days I have to say I think this woman is inspiring she kept the class focused and engaged throughout the two days. I dont normally complete surveys but felt that I wanted to share that this lady has inspired me to give sales ago and I never thought i would say that as i have been a PM and honestly never thought I could see myself as a sales agent... Thanks Mel for such a great two days
