ACTON Awards: Coogee records successful night at gala event

THE Acton Group celebrated its 47th annual awards night last Saturday at Crown Perth’s Astral Ballroom, recognising achievements of the company’s team members from across the State.

Chief executive Travis Coleman and auctioneer Boyd Fraser hosted the event, announcing the 35 award winners, from administration staff to top-selling agents.

Acton Coogee had a successful night, with property consultant David Bombara named Region Champion and Auction Agent of the Year for the second time in a row for the highest number of auctions listed.

He also took home the Marketing Initiative Award and, along with property consultant Fleur Schrader, won a Gold Outstanding Achievement Award based on sales results.

The Coogee team received the Auction Region of the Year Award.

“The awards night really recognises the hard work every team member contributes to the success of the office,” Acton Coogee director Jon Brady said.

“It was also a great effort for David Bombara becoming Auction Agent of the Year for the second year in a row and congratulations to Fleur for her Gold Achievement.”

Acton’s Mandurah office won 14 awards on the night, including its third consecutive Business of the Year Award win for the highest gross sales and property management income for the year.

The Highest Number of Sales title went to Mandurah sales executive Noeline Ross, while Dalkeith director Bev Heymans notched up her sixth win as Sales Champion for the highest gross sales commission for the year.

Acton Central director Peter Beckton received the Celebration Award, an elite Acton corporate-nominated award, and Acton Dalkeith sales executive Joan Gebbie won the Sale of the Year Award.

Mr Coleman said the night, attended by close to 400 people, was a great event for all involved.

“Acton is the largest WA-owned real estate group in WA and our annual awards night showcases our brightest stars,” he said.

“To win an award is a truly special honour and we congratulate all of our finalists and winners on a huge year.”
