    About us

    REIWA is Western Australia’s real estate institute, the peak body for the real estate profession in the state. We exist to make the selling, leasing and buying of property as simple as possible for all West Australians.

    We are a member-owned organisation representing over 1,100 agencies and more than 90 per cent of operating real estate agents in WA.

    Celebrating 100 years of WA real estate

    2018 is REIWA’s centenary and a major milestone in the Institute’s history.

    When the Auctioneers, Land and Real Estate Agents’ Association – the forerunner of the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia – was incorporated on 20 December 1918, World War I had ended just five weeks previously. Perth and the real estate industry was looking forward to a brighter future.

    Fast forward 100 years and while much has changed, our core mission remains the same – REIWA still exists to help everyone win in WA real estate.

    A Century of Service exhibition

    REIWA and the State Library of Western Australia presented a public exhibition between March and May of 2018 celebrating a century of REIWA service.

    The exhibition drew upon REIWA's archives, and those of its members. It also included items from the J.S Battye Library of West Australian History to help tell the story of WA’s rich real estate history, buying and selling through the decades, and the colourful characters and influencers in the industry.
