Di Jones general manager Kylie Walsh has been named as a finalist in the Most Influential Woman in Property category at the 2018 Annual REA Excellence Awards.

The awards, at The Star in Sydney, are to be held next month.

Walsh is up for the award alongside McGrath Caloundra principal Jodie Hedley-Ward (below), who has been recognized as one of the top 10 highest achieving women in McGrath for the first half of 2018.

Among the other nominees for the award are Laing+Simmons Leanne Pilkington, Black Diamondz Property agent Monika Tu and Sadhana Smiles at Harcourts Victoria.

Di Jones CEO Rob Ward said the calibre of the finalists featured in the category and is pleased to see Kylie's contribution to the industry acknowledged.

"Kylie's dedication and commitment to the real estate profession is exceptional, and it is a true testament to her ability and character that she has been recognised as a finalist," Ward said.

Walsh is responsible for increasing management's effectiveness by recruiting, selecting, orienting and training managers. She also spearheads Di Jones' strategic plans to ensure company profitability.

Ward said Walsh has been instrumental in the agency's recent expansion success and works tirelessly to ensure Di Jones continues to thrive.

“I was humbled to be named the top Queensland female agent for the 2018 financial year recently and I believe that learning from others in our phenomenal McGrath network has been instrumental in my career up until this point," Hedley-Ward said.

"I absolutely love learning new distinctions and strategies that can help take my team and everyone at our McGrath Caloundra office to the next level.”

McGrath Caloundra recently donated $100,000 to almost 100 not-for-profit organisations since the start of 2017 as part of its Community Giveback Program.

The Community Giveback program involves a $500 donation at settlement to a not- for-profit, school or sporting organisation that the client nominates. Along with the monetary donations, the team also donates their time, going over and above for causes close to their heart. 

On the award nomination, Hedley-Ward said she is thrilled to be flying the flag for Queensland.

“I am honoured to be a finalist in this year’s AREAS and really want to acknowledge the incredible team I have at McGrath Caloundra who all share my intense passion for linking commerce with our Community Giveback program, which is at the heart of everything we do," she said.

Jodie was also the 2017 Sunshine Coast Corporate Businesswoman of the Year and has coveted numerous awards since opening McGrath Caloundra with her husband David Hedley-Ward in 2016.
