The Property Shop wins Australasian Rural Agency of the Year

Damian Kearns, ARERA's 2011 Regional Agent Achiever of the Year, with RER Network CEO Michael Sheargold and Olympic Beach Volleyball gold medal winner Natalie Cook.

The Property Shop was awarded two pretigious accolades at the Australasian Real Estate Results Awards (ARERAs) held at The Ivy Room in Sydney on February 14.

The Property Shop was represented by Damian Kearns and Peter Vanags at the black tie gala attended by more than 250 of Australia and New Zealand’s top performing independent agents who are part of the Real Estate Results Network.

The Property Shop outshone other finalists in their category to be named Rural Agency of the Year. In accepting the award for Rural Agency of the Year, Damian stated,

“This is a magnificent achievement by the team at The Property Shop and is recognition of the commitment to professionalism and excellence in our field and the high level of service we provide to our clients.

“The inspirational leadership of our principal, Hugh Bateman, and the working environment which he has provided us with are also integral components of our success.”

The Rural Agency of the Year Award is based on service to the community, results achieved, marketing strategies used, feedback from the public, market share and more.

On top of this, leading Mudgee real estate agent Damian Kearns was awarded Australasian Agent Achiever of the Year (Regional), recognising him as the number one agent in non-metropolitan Australia and New Zealand.

This award is given based on individual results, customer service, and the contribution made to the agency and the community from both a professional and personal perspective.

“It is so gratifying to receive this kind of recognition from the industry,” Damian said. “I owe a huge thanks to the wonderful team in our office, to Hugh Bateman who’s given me every opportunity to succeed, and to my wonderful wife and daughter for their support.”

The ARERAs evening was part of a two-day sales training seminar which included presentations from real estate personality John McGrath and gold medal winning beach volleyballer Natalie Cook.
