RateMyAgent (RMA), Australia’s number one real estate ratings website, has announced Michelle Mannex, Elders Real Estate, Shellharbour, as the 2019 female Rising Star Award winner.
The Rising Star Award, which was introduced in 2018 for one male and female recipient, are open to any property professional who’s been in the industry less than three years – giving those who are still new a chance to celebrate their achievements and shine.
“Over the last two decades the number of female real estate agents has doubled across Australia. A huge part of this is from the incredible female leaders in the property market who have paved the way for those passionate in a career in real estate. I feel very honoured to be recognised in this special category and look forward to seeing the bright, new talent that begin their careers this year!”, said Michelle Mannex, Edlers Real Estate, Shellharbour.
The win comes as a result of receiving the highest RMA rating across female newcomers in the industry, which takes into account vendor reviews, the proportion of properties sold, sale volume and total sales over 12 months.
“The Agent of the Year Awards is a night where the industry comes together to celebrate the most highly recommended agents and agencies in Australia. Real estate is an ever changing market, and those who choose to work in it are individuals that thrive in a competitive environment. We celebrate with all the nominees and winners, which include some of the best property professionals in the world, and look forward to seeing what’s to come in the year ahead”, said Mark Armstrong, CEO and co-founder of RateMyAgent.
