Victoria & Tasmania's agents celebrate GEM Awards
Media Release 

First National Real Estate recognised its members’ outstanding achievements at the General Excellence and Marketing (GEM) Awards on Saturday night at Grand Hyatt Melbourne.
 
First National Real Estate is Australia’s largest independent real estate network and its gala evening celebrated the best of Victoria’s and Tasmania’s real estate performances over the past year, which, according to First National Real Estate Victorian Chairman, Garry Nash required substantial effort 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 Nash 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 agencies.”
 
On the night, the Top 10 Offices for the network in Victoria and Tasmania were named and included:
 
1.     First National Real Estate Tweed Sutherland (Bendigo) – Sales Office of the Year
2.     First National Real Estate Collie & Tierney (Mildura)

8.     First National Real Estate Clark (Warragul)

Michael Ryan from First National Real Estate Tweed Sutherland (Bendigo) was named ‘Administrator of the Year’, Rebecca Klar of First National Real Estate Lindellas (Box Hill) was named ‘Property Manager Rookie of the Year’ and Lisa Fox of First National Real Estate Rayner (Bacchus Marsh) was named ‘Receptionist of the Year’.
 
Greg Brown of First National Real Estate Rayner (Bacchus Marsh) was awarded ‘Sales Rookie of the Year’, while Rose Pearson of First National Real Estate Tweed Sutherland (Bendigo) was named ‘Property Manager of the Year’.
 
Mr Nash 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 and the network’s support of the upcoming Regional Victoria Living Expo.
