The Links Property agency has also been nominated in the Real Estate Business’ Women in Real Estate Awards list of honourees for 2019 in the category of Women’s Community Program of the Year in recognition of their generous Breast Cancer Network Australia awareness and fundraising support.
The Women in Real Estate Awards, the first national awards program to recognise the contribution of women in real estate, is dedicated to recognising excellence among the industry’s top female professionals and companies that promote gender diversity and a commitment to the progression of women.
The finalist list, which was announced last week features over 180 highachieving real estate professionals across 27 categories.
REB editor Tim Neary said that the REB Women in Real Estate Awards are designed to show REB’s support for the women in Australian real estate.
“It is a necessary new initiative to celebrate and recognise the female leaders, role models and future champions of the industry and to join the campaign for a more genderbalanced world,” Mr Neary said.
“The awards provide a platform for women in the industry to showcase their talents. It’s a great way to recognise the industry’s high-performance female agents, property managers, BDMs and businesses.
“Links Property’s recognition for its excellent contribution to the Surf Coast industry reinforces the strength of the brand in connecting with the community and engaging with its customers.”
Lynne Hayden, Agency Principal at Links Property, said she was thrilled by the nominations.
“The REB 2019 Women in Real Estate nominations recognise our core all-female team, our hard work, persistence and love for what we do, along with our progressive real estate agency, innovations, achievements and community support.”
The winners will be announced at a five-star gala dinner on June 27 at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney.
