First National Real Estate Announces State GEM Award Winners

27 May 2020

The network’s inaugural Instagram Live awards event streamed video to members and engaged with them in real time as they opened their awards packs
On Friday 22 May, First National Real Estate Coastal was recognised for outstanding achievement at the General Excellence and Marketing Awards, in a ground-breaking Instagram Live event, bringing together award recipients from each office around the state to celebrate.
The awards, which were to have been hosted at a gala event at the Hilton Brisbane in March, were deferred due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings. Instead, award trophies and certificates were delivered to each office last week, then the network’s awards MCs announced the winners, who opened their awards on schedule and participated in the social media hook-up.
The awards celebrated the achievements of the state’s agents throughout 2019, with top 10 individuals and offices now vying for National GEM Awards, which will be announced later in the year.
First National Coastal Principal Paul Angell, says the results show how committed his staff were to competing for business in an environment with fewer listings.
‘Nothing beats hard work and a solid commitment to delivering for customers. That is exactly what our staff did in 2019’ Paul said.
At the presentation, attended by Greg Pratt, First National Real Estate's Business Growth Manager, First National Coastal received the following awards as an office:

🏆 Highest Number of Exclusive Listings

🏆 Highest Number of Settled Sales

🏆 Highest Gross Sales & Leasing Commission
Key staff members were also recognised for their individual performances:

🏆 Amber Hackworthy and Narelle received a silver award for her performance in Commercial Sales and Leasing

🏆 Dan Hawes received a silver award in recognition of his performance in Residential Sales

🏆 Narelle Filmer received a Silver award for her achievements in Commercial Sales and Leasing

🏆 Shane Purssell received a Silver award for his performance in Residential Sales
Paul Angell said the First National GEM Awards are an important event as they as they encourage First National’s agents to aspire to an ongoing process of performance improvement that benefits customers.
