The Bay of Plenty is home to many top performers in the real estate industry.

Realty Group held its annual awards evening at ASB Baypark Arena at Mount Maunganui last night, celebrating the top performing individuals and offices for the 2017/2018 financial year.

The combination of independent sales teams, two major real estate brands and a total staff of more than 450 people from more than 20 offices made for a great night with a number of fantastic achievements celebrated.


Simon Anderson, Realty Group chief executive said the awards were worth celebrating.
