REB Women in Real Estate Awards 2021 nominees have been announced today, with Coronis taking out six nominations across the 22 award categories.

Coronis Chief Operating Officer (COO), Karuna Dimelow said how proud she was of the incredible women in the business and how thrilled she was to celebrate their achievements at the awards on 15 July.

“We truly have incredible women across our business, and they deserve to be recognised for everything they do,” Ms Dimelow said. “When I stepped into the COO role at Coronis, I made it my mission to use my position to create more diversity within our business and create more opportunities for women to put their hand up and progress in their roles.

“As a result, there’re many women who feel empowered, understood and encouraged across our businesses and now achieving incredible heights in their professional and personal lives.

“Being shortlisted for six nominations is a testament that our business is flourishing because of the wonderful women who are realising their career dreams at Coronis. I’m very proud of each and every one of them for smashing their goals and reshaping the industry.

“It’s a personal goal for me to increase the number of women specifically in our sales team, so hopefully being shortlisted for these awards means we’re implementing the right initiatives and creating the ideal, supportive work environment that more women want to work in.”

The Women in Real Estate Awards is the benchmark for excellence, recognising the outstanding women influencing the Australian real estate profession.

Founded to celebrate the female leaders, role models and future champions of the industry, this esteemed accolade provides a platform for women leading in their field to be acknowledged and celebrated for their achievements and contributions to the industry.

The finalist list, which was announced on 26 May 2021, features over 170 high-achieving professionals within the real estate industry, across 22 submission-based categories.

Commenting on the announcement, REB news editor Grace Ormsby said there’s a lot of anticipation building as the REB Women in Real Estate Awards 2021 returns to an in-person event.

“All those named as finalists ahead of this year’s awards have well and truly proved their acumen in the real estate industry, especially given the trials and tribulations that have faced all Australians over the past 12 months,” Ms Ormsby said.

“These awards represent a wonderful opportunity to recognise the people who are going above and beyond in their pursuit of real estate excellence—and smashing barriers for equality along the way.

“On behalf of REB, I’d like to offer my congratulations to all those named as finalists, and wish everyone the best of luck on the night!”

The winners of the awards will be announced at a black-tie dinner on Thursday, 15 July, in Sydney.
