Local Agency Winners at Real Estate ‘Oscars’

Local Agency Winners at Real Estate ‘Oscars’

Leading Manawatu agency, JVL Prestige, was named Boutique Agency of the Year (New Zealand) at the 8th Annual Australasian Real Estate Awards (ARERAs) on Tuesday evening.

Held at Doltone House, Hyde Park, the awards ceremony aims to recognise high achievers in the industry and their outstanding triumphs in the last 12 months.

Contested by some of Australia and New Zealand’s top performers, the 2014 ARERAs have more than 25 agencies nominated across 31 categories with a strong focus on service excellence, community achievement and innovation.

Founder of Real Estate Results, Michael Sheargold congratulated all of the finalists on the high standard of work achieved in 2013.

“The ARERAs are the perfect opportunity to bring together agents from across the nation to celebrate and reflect on the achievements of the past year,” said Mr Sheargold.

“We were blown away by the quality of the nominations received this year with some extremely impressive and phenomenal results achieved across the Network.

“Real estate agents are notoriously competitive so it comes as no surprise that there is tough competition in each of the categories this year,” he said.

The ARERAs were held at Doltone House, Hyde Park on 18th February 2014.

Real Estate Results Network consists of independent agencies, agents, property managers and support teams, all competing for these accolades. There are more than 1400 principals and agents who are members of the Real Estate Results Network throughout Australia and New Zealand.
