The stories of success and top performers who dominated an incredible year in Queensland real estate were on show last Thursday as over 1300 Ray White members filled Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre for the Ray White Queensland Annual Awards 2016.
In a clever nod to the journey of the Olympic torch, Queensland CEO Tony Warland, opened the awards and set the tone with his powerful speech that included the announcement of the newly inked sponsorship with Wandering Warriors – an Australian charity that supports returned service men.
The night’s impressive lineup saw a broad selection of Queensland businesses take home awards.
Ray White Surfers Paradise was recognised as the number one office based on settled commission and number one for number of sales. Internationally, Surfers Paradise is number four.
The major individual performer award of the night went to Sam Guo of Ray White Broadbeach. Sam was honoured with not only the number one top performer award, based on settled commission, but received the award for the number one top international performer as well.
Number one principal went to Ascot’s Dwight Ferguson and after an incredibly successful year, the number one performer based on number of sales went to Ray White Oxenford’s Clint Hynes.
Chris and Jan Cowan, from Ray White alderley, and Leslie Robins of Deception Bay, received Life Member awards and the prestigious Max White award went to Warren Ramsey of Ray White Ipswich.
Ray White Wilston was recognised as the Property Management team of the year while the broker category was dominated by Ray White Ascot’s Dwight Ferguson, who won two awards including referring salesperson by volume and referring salesperson by numbers of loans.
