Agent of the Year Awards 2018 Deadline 7 January - less than 27 days to go! UPDATE: The RateMyAgent 2018 Agent of the Year Award winners have been announced. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees! The deadline to submit reviews and become a true contender for a 2018 Agent of the Year award is less than a month away – and the competition has never been hotter. In one week alone, agents have requested more than 10,000 reviews – the largest number since RateMyAgent began. Last week, vendors were leaving 1,000 reviews a day! Even if you won an award last year, you’ll most certainly need more vendor reviews and a higher RMA Score to win this year. If you ever needed more incentive to bring your review requests right up-to-date, this is it! New in 2018: the Rising Star Awards If you’re new to the industry and might not have the same sales volume as more established agents, you've still got the chance to shine. At RMAOpen 2018 during the Agent of the Year Awards night on 22 February 2018, we’ll be announcing two new awards: Rising Star (Male) and Rising Star (Female). The new awards are open to anyone who’s been in the industry for less than 3 years. They’ll be awarded on the same basis as Agent of the Year - the highest number of reviews and highest RMA Score, along with the number of properties sold in 2017 and their total sales value (find out more here). The only difference is that you’ll be competing with other newcomers to the industry. If you’ve been in the industry for less than 3 years, you can nominate yourself. If you’re a more experienced agent or director, but would like to recognise someone in your agency, you can send a nomination on their behalf.
