REINSW outlines real estate reforms at 2018 Roadshow

  • Written by Helen Hull

The massive changes to the training and licensing requirements for the real estate industry will be the focus of the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales’ 2018 Roadshow series.

REINSW CEO Tim McKibbin said for the past three years NSW Fair Trading and REINSW have together been developing the new industry standard that is being implemented from 1 July this year.

“These changes will support and enhance the profession going forward and it is vitally important that all real estate professionals understand the truth about what this means for them,” Mr McKibbin said.

“I urge agents to join NSW Fair Trading and REINSW at one of our Roadshow information sessions being run at 20 locations across NSW from March to June. We will be able to provide the facts about what lies ahead, and what the obligations and options are.

“Come along and get the facts from the people that developed the reforms, and have your questions answered. This is one of the most important changes our industry has ever seen, and it is vital that agents understand it,” he said.

Joining REINSW in the annual roadshow are representatives from NSW Fair Trading, the Real Estate Employers’ Federation (REEF), as well as newly elected REINSW President Leanne Pilkington.
