For 11 years, Nicole Berry has been the backbone to one of Harcourts' finest businesses.
Now, the administration manager at Harcourts Signature in Tasmania has been recognised on a national stage for her skillset and dedication.
After winning the Tasmanian title in 2020 for Operational Support, Nicole won the 2021 national award from a competitive pool of 83 professionals.
“It’s quite an accolade after many years in the industry, and particularly being such an advocate for administration in the real estate industry,” Ms Berry said.
Unlike award programs which focus on transactions, statistics and profit, the Awards for Excellence are awarded purely on merit following deliberation by a comprehensive judging process.
The annual Real Estate Institute of Australia National Awards for Excellence 2021 covers all aspects of the real estate sector, including residential and commercial agencies, residential and commercial sales, property management, business brokers, buyer’s agents, community service, innovation and communications.
The expansive Harcourts Signature business operates with over fifty staff out of four locations, Rosny Park on Hobart’s eastern shore, New Town servicing the Lenah Valley areas, Glenorchy servicing the northern suburbs from New Norfolk to as far as Oatlands, and Sorell.
“Nicole has been with us from the beginning,” says director Garry Quan.
“She is an integral part of our business' success. Between the administration management of four office locations, contract processing, HR management of 55 staff and forever responding to queries from agents, it's fair to say that we are all so grateful to have her as part of our family.”
“As a real estate administrator, Nicole’s committed and professional approach to the day-to-day business operations, including a sharp eye for detail, ensures that this business is run in the most efficient and effective manner,” he said.
Having worked in real estate for two decades, Nicole has an impressive knowledge across all facets of the industry.
“She is an invaluable part of our business operations to keep the wheels turning with ease.”
“Her warm disposition is appreciated by clients and staff alike,” Mr Quan concluded.
