Karen Young is 2015 REIQ Buyer's Agent of the Year We’re thrilled, happy, eager, elated, giddy (please take this thesaurus away from us!) to share with you that Karen Young of Property Zest (aka Kaz to Everyday Property Investing community) has been awarded the 2015 Buyer’s Agent of the Year by the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ). The announcement came during the glitzy awards gala night held last 5th of February in Brisbane. The REIQ Awards is an annual event recognising real estate practitioners who have made an outstanding contribution to the State’s real estate profession. To be included amongst the finalists is already an honour.  To be chosen the best in the category is definitely something that will motivate us even further to deliver only the best buyer’s agent service in the State. Below are some of the photos during the awards night.
