REINSW highest accolade to buyers’ agent Richard Harvey

The prestigious Woodrow Weight Award for outstanding service to the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales and the profession has been awarded to propertybuyer Managing Director Richard Harvey.

The Woodrow Weight Award is named after the legendary REINSW President, who was the first Australian ever to be elected World President of the International Real Estate Federation, and was the top honour presented at the 2015 REINSW Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner last night.

REINSW President Malcolm Gunning paid tribute to Mr Harvey and his contribution to the industry.

“Richard is highly regarded and has a reputation for being a staunch advocate for the buyers’ agent specialty and has always been at the forefront of the REINSW’s lobbying efforts in this area.


“Most recently, Richard’s efforts led to the inclusion of buyers’ agents on the front page of the new Contract for Sale and Purchase of Land. This change recognises the increased prominence of buyers’ agents in our industry.

“Well known to property professionals across New South Wales, many of whom have enjoyed the direct benefit of Richard’s years of experience, he is a member who has never been afraid to stand up and speak his mind, and then immediately pitch in and make a difference.


“Richard is a true leader in our industry. He is a staunch supporter of the Real Estate Institute and I, like many others, hold him in the highest of esteem,” Mr Gunning said.
