Awards tour de force for Institute of Estate Agents

Office bearers of the Institute of Estate Agents (IEASA) made a strong showing in the line-up of industry winners at the Nedbank Property Association Awards at the weekend.

Three national directors were named Movers & Shakers in the industry, while a national director and a regional director were among the finalists for the Property Professional of the Year award.

The three Movers & Shakers are IEASA national president Dr Willie Marais, and national directors Tjaart van der Walt and Sindile Faku. Kerry Warburg, a national as well as regional director, and regional director Werner Eksteen were among the finalists in the Property Professional category.

Marais says it is very pleasing that serving members of the IEASA were recognised at the awards. "This is the first time in many years that IEASA has made a showing at the awards, a forum that gives national recognition to estate agents and other roleplayers for their contributions to the well being of the industry.

"And in this respect, it is especially pleasing that three of the eight national Movers & Shakers awards this year were made to IEASA directors."

Marais, whose main achievement since being appointed national president of IEASA in 2006 is the unification of the real estate industry, says the recognition given by the Property Association to serving IEASA members is a great step forward in achieving still closer co-operation within the industry.

"This augers well for an industry that has to face many challenges. Closer co-operation will strengthen it and enhance the professional image of estate agents."

IEASA was recently restructured in terms of the Labour Act and the Services SETA to enhance its role as a viable and growing professional representative body. It is also enjoying growing international recognition due to the achievements of the local estate agency profession and through its affiliation with international real estate bodies such as the National Association of Realtors in the US and the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations.
