The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) has been the state’s peak professional association for the real estate industry since 1918. With more than 95 years’ experience, few associations hold the reputation or brand recognition of the REIQ.

Today, it represents approximately 4,000 individual members, around 1,600 agency offices, and more than 15,000 property professionals including principal licensees, salespeople, property managers, resident unit managers, auctioneers, business brokers, buyers’ agents, and commercial and industrial agents in Queensland.

Professionalism and best practice are values long advocated by the Institute. The REIQ exists to support member agencies with information, products and resources that complement their business practices, which in turn ensures professional service for the public across the State.

All REIQ members must commit to adhere to the Institute’s Standards of Business Practice and to undertake compulsory professional development each year to keep abreast of issues affecting the real estate profession. Each REIQ accredited agency must also carry professional indemnity insurance.

Our Standards of Business Practice were developed with the objective of increasing the accountability of members in conducting the business of a real estate agent or auctioneer in Queensland. Therefore, members of the REIQ are required to conduct their business in a manner that will uphold and enhance the reputation of the real estate profession. If they don’t, the REIQ has a tribunal which can decide whether an agent or agency should remain a member of the Institute.

It is this commitment to best practice and ongoing education that is one of the many attributes that distinguishes an REIQ accredited agency or individual REIQ member from other real estate practitioners.

REIQ members also have access to up-to-the minute best practice advice, the latest property research data, and are continually upgrading their knowledge and skills, especially regarding the many complex pieces of legislation which regulate the real estate profession in Queensland.
