Media Release: 4 October 2018
The Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) and realestate.com.au (REA) have joined forces to provide insights and opportunities towards professional property investment advice.
PIPA Chairman Peter Koulizos said the REA sponsorship signalled a new era for the association, which now represented thousands of property investment professionals across the country.
“The realestate.com.au sponsorship helps to ensure that PIPA continues to go from strength to strength as well as provides significant benefits to our growing membership through access to the country’s top real estate analytics,” he said.
Joseph Lyons, REA Group Executive GM of Developer, Commercial & Media said, “We’re committed to making it easier for both our consumers and customers to connect when purchasing property.
“As a leading association of independent property advisors, the affiliation between the Property Investment Professionals of Australia and realestate.com.au is an important step in enabling more of those successful connections to help Australians realise their property goals.”
Mr Koulizos said with some markets transitioning to softer conditions, it was more important than ever that consumers could access professional independent property investment advice.
“Over the years, we’ve heard about Aussies losing hundreds of thousands of dollars because they trusted someone who was only concerned with lining their back pockets,” he said.
“Until such a time as the government takes regulation of property investment advice seriously, PIPA will continue to provide the public with warnings about only working with ethical and professional industry practitioners.”
