  • History of REIWA

    Peak body for WA real estate since 1918

    In 1907, a dedicated group of Perth real estate agents gathered to form an industry association to represent them. This proved a challenging undertaking and it wasn’t until 20 December 1918 that the association was established under the name ‘Auctioneers', Land & Estate Agents' Association of Western Australia’.

    These agents had a very clear directive; to position their members as professional and reputable business people within the Western Australian community.

    On 26 October 1944, the association changed its name to the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (Inc) and ‘the Institute’ as we know it today was born.

    REIWA's evolution

    In the many years that have passed since 1918, REIWA has evolved into a respected and trusted authority on all things real estate in WA.

    We represent more than 1,100 member agencies and 90 per cent of operating agents in WA, providing them with a range of products, services, advice and information to help market and manage their business.

    This support in turn benefits the wider real estate community who use the services of REIWA agents.

    REIWA’s Past Presidents

    Every year the current REIWA President invites all surviving Past Presidents to a board room lunch. It is a much anticipated and enjoyable gathering where former leaders of the Institute share stories and fellowship.
