Ray White Queensland celebrates its 2023 winners

By Ray White Whitsunday

More than 1,400 members from across Ray White Queensland attended the state’s 2022-23 annual awards held at the Royal International Convention Centre.

Ray White Queensland CEO Jason Andrew said the moment was like no other in the year with so many members from across the state gathered in one space at one time to celebrate one another.

“From the lofty highs of the last few years to a market now quasi-normalised. Your work to embrace the change required between those contrary markets is tonight rightly celebrated,” he said.

“Do we make Ray’s story, which is all of our story – to grow, to protect, to improve; do we make this story enduring?

“Our daily work can add or detract to or from this story. And every day we get to make that choice. In every interaction with a customer, a phone call to another member, an innocuous social post or with just another email. Every interaction matters.

“By committing to the daily work as a practice, it is our way to clear market leadership and fulfil the state strategy of; being best in market.”

The most prestigious award of the night was the Max White Award, which is given each year to an individual who had made the most significant contribution to the Ray White Group in Queensland. This was the award’s 43rd year and was given to Ray White Robina CEO Scott Burgess.

“Tonight’s winner bought their office in 2006. The GFC followed an original mass staff exodus. From these humble beginnings, this business owner has built something enduring”, Mr Andrew said as he presented the award.

“Our winner is calm and honest, fiercely loyal and structured. His pedigree as a child sports prodigy and the discipline to come with that  is clear for all to see, but it is his ability to listen and find a solution, create market share and be a clear leader that we love most about this individual.”

In his acceptance speech, Mr Burgess said he was so proud to have so many people be with them for a long period of time from across the group.

“We’ve been a part of this wonderful family group for 17 years and what an unbelievable group the Ray White Group is. The training, the support and the mentoring, it’s outstanding,” he said.

“Please understand me when I say, no matter whether you’re having a good year or a bad year, this is the best group to be with.”
