Lake Macquarie, Mark Kentwell, has been named Australia’s top Real Estate Principal of the Year in Regional Australia for a second time.
Mr Kentwell received his award at a gala event hosted by REB (Real Estate Business Online) in Sydney. The prestigious award recognises sales success and leadership of a real estate agency. He won the same award in 2014.
He was chosen from 10 finalists selected from tens of thousands of real estate professionals working outside capital cities. He was also a finalist in the Thought Leadership category for innovation in business systems and the highly successful Friendly Auctions process.
This award follows Mr Kentwell being named REB’s 2015 top real estate sales agent outside a capital city. The agency was also named in Australia’s 2016 Top Ten Sales Offices and is the number one sales office within the PRDnationwide group nationally.
Mr Kentwell said the awards are a credit to his entire Newcastle and Lake Macquarie team. He said the recognition motivates him and his team to do their best for clients.
“It is encouraging and pleasing to win these awards but we’re focussed on the success of our clients during every property transaction,” Mr Kentwell said.
“PRDnationwide Newcastle & Lake Macquarie has the region covered with a team of 50 professionals, one huge buyer database and three offices - Watt Street Newcastle, Warners Bay and Newcastle Mall,” he said.
