For the third year running, Subiaco-based Property Wizards Buyers Agents has been awarded top honours in their field at the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) annual Awards for Excellence.

Taking out their hat trick win, receiving REIWA Buyer’s Agent of the Year 2009 managing director Liz Sterzel said the accolade was made possible by a determination to make clients’ dollars work harder for them in a changing, complex market.

“We are very grateful to be acknowledged once again and amongst outstanding competition – we pride ourselves on service, leadership and ability to adapt to the market, so we’re honoured to be recognized for our hard work,” she said.

“This year has been financially tough as well as an opportunistic time in the market, so we were determined to stand by our clients who showed real grit and purpose in such an uncertain economic climate, and that has paid off for all of us.

“We’d like to extend a big thank you to all our fantastic clients who have entrusted us to buy them great properties and help increase their wealth.

“The market is constantly changing, and what we’re seeing now is very encouraging, so we are firmly focused on continuing our recipe for success and strategies to deliver the best results.”

The panel of judges who chose Property Wizards Buyers Agency as the winning team, were impressed by the excellent level of detail they showed towards consumer liaison and the level of care taken to understand the needs of their clients.

REIWA president Rob Druitt said the profession of buyers’ agents was relatively new to Perth consumers, but was attracting greater interest.

“A recent careers night at REIWA saw around 70 people from the general community come along to hear about options in the real estate sector, with many of the questions coming from people who wanted to know more about buyers’ agency practice,” he said.

The Award for Excellence in Buyer’s Agency recognizes superior service, leadership and exceeding client expectations.

On September 23, the Buyer’s Agent accolade given to Liz Sterzel and Trevor Dunkley of Property Wizards was one of only seven from a possible 16 categories awarded for 2009.

Property Wizards Buyers Agents will now step forward into the Real Estate Industry of Australia’s (REIA’s) national competition to be held in Adelaide next March.

Established in 2004, Property Wizards works with local, interstate and overseas buyers seeking to buy property in the greater metropolitan area.
