• REIA re-elects President for second term


    The Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) has welcomed the re-election Adrian Kelly from Tasmania, as President for a second term. 

    The national professional association for Australia’s real estate sector held its Annual General Meeting in Canberra on Thursday 12 December.

    REIA President Adrian Kelly

    Born and raised in Hobart, Mr Kelly has worked in the Tasmanian real estate industry since 1990. He is the founder and CEO of View Real Estate, an independent agency comprising seven sales and property management offices across Tasmania.

    Mr Kelly said the past year has been an important year for the REIA with the Federal Election in May and the public debate on taxation of housing and its impact on affordability.  

     “There is no doubt that REIA’s campaign, supported by REIs and franchise networks, played a role in the election outcome with marginal electorates with higher than average numbers of investment property owners showing a larger swing towards the government than the national average,” Mr Kelly said. 

    “Particularly pleasing was the appointment of a Minister for Housing, a position that the REIA has long advocated for.

    “REIA will continue to be a strong advocate for the retention of the current arrangements for the taxation of housing."

    Deputy President Hayden Groves

    Hayden Groves from Western Australia was re-elected Deputy President for another 12 months - a position Mr Groves has held since 2015.  

    Mr Groves has served on the REIWA Council since 2010 and served as the REIWA President from 2015 - 2018. 

    Currently Mr Groves owns and operates an established independent Fremantle based agency with a staff of 20, which specialises in residential management and sales.
