Excellence in Property Awards

The Australian Property Institute’s Excellence in Property Awards program is designed to recognise both individuals and organisations in the public and private sector who are leading the way in the property industry. A judging panel of distinguished industry leaders are brought together to critically assess all entries in their individual categories.
