First National GEMs Sparkle at NSW Awards Night
First National Real Estate recognised its outstanding New South Wales achievers at the General Excellence and Marketing (GEM) Awards on Saturday night at Sydney’s Blue Hotel.
 
First National Real Estate is Australia’s largest independent real estate network and its gala evening celebrated the best of New South Wales’ real estate performances over the past year, which, according to First National Real Estate’s NSW chairman, David Lovell required considerable focus and discipline to achieve.
 
“While the property market showed signs of recovery last year, conditions remained far from ideal in many locations and agents needed to stay focused on systems, processes and professional development to deliver excellent results for their customers” Mr Lovell, said.
 
“The GEM Awards bring recognition to all that hard work, and the competitive spirit that is a part of daily operations in our estate agency.”
 
On the night, the Top 10 Offices for the network in NSW were named and included:
 
1.     First National Walsh & Sullivan (Baulkham Hills) – Office Of The Year
2.     First National Real Estate Port Macquarie
3.     First National Real Estate Gerard Smith (Picton)

8.     First National Real Estate Wal Murray & Co (Lismore)
9.     First National Real Estate Epping Central (Epping)
10.  First National Real Estate Iskandar (Marrickville)
 
First National Port Macquarie received ‘Property Management Team of The Year’ and

Mr Lovell said the First National GEM Awards are an important event within the real estate profession as they present an opportunity for members to come together and share their thoughts and views on the industry and events that affect them, such as the Government’s recently abandoned attempt to create a national real estate licensing system.
