INSTITUTE OF ESTATE AGENTS GETS GLOBAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Nov 22, 2010
Singapore’s Institute of Estate Agents (IEA) has received the Global Outreach Award of the Year from the National Association of REALTORS (NAR).
The award was presented on the sidelines of a convention, held from November 4 to 8 at the New Orleans Convention Centre in Louisiana. It was attended by more than 24,000 realtors and representatives from various realtors associations around the world.
This year, the NAR gave out six Global Achievement Awards, with the Global Outreach Award of the Year going to IEA, Singapore. The award was received by Mr. Jeff Foo, immediate past president of IEA and Ms. Tracey Wong, general manager of IEA.
In his acceptance speech, Mr. Foo said the award was a surprise and an honour for IEA and Singapore. He also said he did not expect IEA to win the award especially with the strong competition from over 45 countries.
Ms. Wong said she believes the award is in recognition of the work done by IEA in advancing the goals and objectives of organised global real estate enhancement for realtors in Singapore and the other ASEAN countries.
