TOP-performing real estate professionals from across the state were recognised at the weekend at a ceremony in Launceston. In what has certainly been a year to remember, the annual Real Estate Institute of Tasmania Awards for Excellence highlighted the achievements of 20 winners. In the Agency of the Year categories, PRD Hobart won for Large Residential, Harcourts Huon Valley for Medium and Downton Property for Small. Director at 4one4 Real Estate, Patrick Berry, said their win in the Innovation category was the business’ 20th REIT/REIA award. “They tend to be people that don’t see real estate as just what they do for a living, it’s more ‘who I am’,” she said.
