The Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) has elected Robyn Waters as President for 2018-19.

Waters was the first Australian woman to be appointed World President of the International Real Estate Federation in 2014.

She is the third female president at the REIV after Di Baker, who took over for two years in 1987, and Valda Walsh, who held the position from 2000 to 200.

Waters served on the REIV Board as Senior Vice President in 2017-18 and Director from 2001 to 2006 as well as being a ministerial appointment to the Estate Agents Council from 2015 to 2018.

She is a licensed estate agent who operates as a sole trader providing real estate services to a select portfolio of clients.

She is a fellow of the REIA and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

“I am delighted to be appointed as the third female REIV President since 1936 at this crucial time for Victoria’s real estate industry,” Waters said.

“I was born and raised in a real estate family in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and witnessed the industry’s evolution since the early 1980s.

“Through my work with the International Real Estate Federation, I have learnt that the real estate industry is intrinsically linked to the livability and prosperity of our community and has a major role to play in shaping our future.”

“I look forward to working with our members, legislators, interest groups and stakeholders to elevate the role of the REIV to provide further insight and perspective on policy and issues that will mold our communities and enhance the way we live."
