Awards flow for real estate company

A WHITSUNDAYS real estate firm has been recognised as ‘the best of the best’.

PRD Whitsunday has now been recognised twice as the best asset management team in Australia across the PRD network and, this year, the Whitsunday office was ranked number 8 in the country, at the network’s national awards.

PRD’s local team won Property Management Team of the Year at the awards, which had been due to take place at the Hyatt Regency, Sydney, on March 21.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, the awards were switched, at short notice, to a virtual awards ceremony, live streamed from head office on Wednesday (March 25) with the Whitsundays team watching from their office.

Carinda Ivens won Support Person of the Year and Lorna Serfontein was a finalist in the Senior Property Manager of the Year category.

Accom Whitsunday manager Laura Perry was also a finalist, for Property Manager of the Year.

CEO Annette Harm said the team had worked with a single-minded focus over recent years to offer the best asset management service in Australia.

“Carinda celebrates 13 years working with the company this year and she is the best administrator in the real estate industry, providing the best contract preparation and administration you will find,” Ms Harm said.

“Lorna has led the team in recent years after joining PRD six years ago. Her dedication to excellence and correctly aligning to legislation is a credit to her as a busy working Mum.

“Laura has such a passion for Accom and the Whitsundays in general, which spills over into service that goes above and beyond for both owners and guests.”

The team plans to retain the award next year by introducing a number of new innovations, ensuring they continue to hone their value offering even further for clients.

“We understand that things are currently very uncertain, which is why owners want the best team available to look after their biggest asset,” Ms Harm said.
