Illawarra agent Jeremy Hodder has again been shortlisted for a prestigious real estate award. 

The co-principal of Belle Property Illawarra is in the running to take out a coveted honour at the Real Estate Business Awards 2018.

After winning the same category last year, Mr Hodder has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Sales Agent of the Year - Regional category of the nationally recognised awards.

Now in its sixth  year, the Real Estate Business Awards seek to recognise the achievements of the industry’s leading agents, networks, innovators, lenders and property managers across 27 categories.

Towradgi resident Mr Hodder said he was humbled by the nomination.

“It’s an honour to be recognised among some of the best agents around the country,” he said. 

“The calibre (of finalists) gets harder every year… There’s some outstanding agents out there.”

The winner will be announced at The Star, Sydney on Thursday, July 19. 

REB managing editor Tim Neary said that the REB Awards is the biggest event of the year in Australian real estate, and is a benchmark for success.

Mr Neary said the REB Awards recognise and reward those who are driving real estate in Australia into the future.

“The awards are the most sought-after business awards for the real estate industry in Australia,” he said.

“It is a great way to recognise the industry’s high-performance agents, property managers, BDMs and businesses, those who are able to flourish in the face of the industry’s ongoing challenges.”

All submissions are delivered to a panel of industry professionals and business leaders for assessment.
