Meet Canberra’s Project Property Marketer & Commercial Salesperson of the Year.

Canberra’s real estate professionals were celebrated at the 2019 Real Estate Institute of the ACT (REIACT) Awards for Excellence on 14 September. Among the industry’s best was Burgess Rawson Canberra’s Managing Director Guy Randell, who was named Project Property Marketer of the Year and Commercial Salesperson of the Year.

For Guy, the awards recognise the hard work Burgess Rawson has put in over the past three and a half years in Canberra.

“It stands for what we’ve managed to achieve – from setting up the company, making a name for itself, getting respect in the industry and of course, our clients for giving us the work,” Guy says.

Most agents will claim to have broad experience but few can match the diverse property background that Guy Randell brings to the Burgess Rawson Canberra team.

Guy has over 17 years’ experience in the industry, including national public and private sector roles within national policy development, land acquisitions, residential, retail, commercial and development design and delivery.

  • 17 Childcare Developments leased in Canberra
  • 30 commercial sales at DKSN

He has played a key role in delivering Burgess Rawson’s large commercial projects in the Canberra region, notably the major inner-north development, DKSN.

DKSN is a joint venture development by Doma Group and Englobo, which will see Dickson transform into a buzzing centre for work, food and play. With a vibrant blend of retail, residential apartments, state-of-the-art office space and North Canberra’s largest transport hub, DKSN will be home to hundreds of residents, thousands of office workers and 15,000 daily commuters.

“DKSN is the big project that Burgess Rawson Canberra has worked on that we feel like we have really made a difference in the industry and it has given us an opportunity to showcase the expertise we’ve got,” Guy says.

REIACT President Michael Kumm says the awards night is a chance to acknowledge outstanding performances of the industry’s elite.

“Our awards recognise the professionalism and commitment of our members to both consumers and colleagues alike, when conducting their everyday business. The standard of submissions for this year’s awards was of the highest calibre,” Mr Kumm says.

Guy will be one of nineteen of the 30 award winners who will now represent the ACT at the REIA National Awards for Excellence to be held in Darwin in April 2020.

But for now, Guy is getting right back into business.

“We’ve got plenty of exciting projects in the works so watch this space.”
