First National GEMs Sparkle at WA Awards Night

Date: 17 March 2014
 

First National Real Estate recognised its outstanding Western Australia achievers at the General Excellence and Marketing (GEM) Awards on Saturday night at Crown Perth. 
 
First National Real Estate is Australia’s largest independent real estate network and its gala evening celebrated the best of Western Australia’s real estate performances over the past year, which, according to First National Real Estate’s WA chairman, Ms Lynda Briggs 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” Ms Briggs 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 WA were named and included:
 
1.     First National Real Estate Margaret River – Sales Office Of The Year
2.     First National Real Estate Tully (South Lake)
3.     First National Real Estate Busselton
4.     First National Real Estate Druitt & Shead (Doubleview)
5.     First National Real Estate Mercer Harries (Pinjarra)
6.     First National Real Estate Hedland (Port Hedland)
7.     First National Real Estate Albany
8.     First National Real Estate Giles Jones (Midland)
9.     First National Real Estate Davies (Spearwood)
10.  First National Real Estate Heron Johns (Bull Creek)
 
First National Real Estate Geraldton received ‘Foundation Office of the Year’,
First National Real Estate Tully (South Lake) received ‘Most Energy Efficient Office of the Year’, while First National Real Estate Ellenbrook received the coveted ‘Referral Office of The Year’ award.
 
Individuals were also recognised on the night, with the Top 10 WA Salespeople being:
 
1.     Jenny Gauci, First National Real Estate Heron Johns (Bull Creek) Salesperson of The Year
2.     Jason Cooper, First National Real Estate Busselton

8.     Barry Granville, First National Real Estate Margaret River
9.     Craig Bamford, First National Real Estate Margaret River
10.  Joe Bryant, First National Real Estate Mercer Harries (Pinjarra)
 
Samantha Maybury from First National Real Estate Patience (Joondalup) was named ‘Administrator of the Year’, Ny-Re Fardella of First National Real Estate Busselton was named ‘Property Manager Rookie of the Year’ and Emma Briggs of First National Real Estate Ellenbrook was named ‘Receptionist of the Year’.
 
Ms Lynda Briggs 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.
