Agent of the Year Awards expand to property management in 2019

Introducing the Property Management Agency of the Year Award

A thriving, professionally-run property management business is the bedrock of every successful real estate agency. A growing rent roll feeds listings to the agency’s sales arm when landlords decide to sell. Just as importantly, a rent roll is a saleable asset – and provides reliable monthly income that underpins the agency as a whole.

 

 

Bring your property management team out from the shadows!

For far too long, property management teams have been the unsung heroes of successful real estate agencies.

RateMyAgent is all about supporting great real estate professionals. And it’s time to recognise the significant contribution that great property management teams make to their agency’s success.

That’s why the RateMyAgent Agent of the Year Awards in 2019 are expanding to include the Property Management Agency of the Year Award.

 

State and national Awards

The Award will recognise the top 10 property management teams in each State and Territory, and the top 100 nationally. From there, the overall winner in each State and Territory – and ultimately, the National winner – will be announced at the Agent of the Year Awards on 21 February 2019.

 

 

Is our property management team eligible?

RateMyAgent for Property Managers is included in the Enterprise subscription. If you haven’t set up Ratemyagent for Property Managers yet, contact the friendly client service team. They’ll have you up-and-running in no time.

Request reviews

 


How will RateMyAgent determine the winners?

Property management is an ongoing service based on building long-term relationships with landlords. The Property Management Agency of the Year Award is designed to recognise the value of these long-term relationships to the rent roll and the agency as a whole.

By contrast, client relationships in real estate sales are largely transactional. This means the property management Awards will be calculated differently from the sales Awards, which are based on the number of reviews as a proportion of overall transactions.

The property management teams that receive the highest number of unique reviews from landlords (not from tenants) will win the Awards. It’s that simple.

How can our team maximise its chances of winning?

Request reviews from the following 3 categories of clients to make your property management team most competitive for the Award:

 

  1. Every landlord currently on your books (including those you signed before 2018)
  2. Every landlord you’ve signed so far in 2018
  3. Every landlord you sign up to the Award cut-off date of 6 January 2019.

 

Don’t wait until the last minute. If you’ve fallen behind with your review requests, now’s the time to get cracking!

 

BONUS tip:

Check out these 5 reasons your vendor hasn't reviewed you yet (and how to fix them), plus some helpful tips to get all your missing reviews. While these are written with vendors in mind, the same strategies apply to landlords.
