Laguna Real Estate wins two national awards

A LOCAL real estate agency has won not one, but two prestigious national awards at a ceremony in Sydney.

Noosa's Laguna Real Estate have taken out top honours in categories Major Independent of the Year - four or more offices and Property Manager of the Year with staff member Kellie Drinnan.

The event was held at The Star in Sydney on June 16 and was attended by the very best agents from across the country.

Laguna Real Estate owner Olivier Miller said she was not expecting to win both awards, but she is thrilled with the results.

"We were very excited to be nominated," Ms Miller said.

"We thought we'd be spectators and we were really excited to be among the best, and of course when they read out our names, we were ecstatic.

"We were very excited. Particularly that we're regional, particularly that we're in Queensland as well, we're just very excited and I knew we'd do a great job and it's just so thrilling.

"We're absolutely ecstatic because these awards are national awards.

"We knew we were doing a really good job, and to have an independent body recognise that Laguna is the best major independent, and also has the best property manager - we're thrilled."
