Top Award to WA Businessman

Cambell Giles from Midland (West Australia) was last night presented with the Kaye Heath Memorial Award during First National Real Estate’s Convention on the Gold Coast. The award is presented members of the network who are judged as having contributed above and beyond in their service to Australia’s largest independent real estate network and is the company’s highest honour.
‘Cambell’s parents opened their agency in Midland in 1973 and then joined First National office in Midland in 1984, making them founding members of our West Australia network’ said First National chief executive, Ray Ellis.

In an example of the inter-generational businesses that typically make up the cooperative network, Cambell joined the office in 1993 and then he Kingsley Hebition , a long time employee purchased the agency in 1998. Cambell has been an outstanding contributor to First National for over 20 years. Then in 2005 with a change to the partnership with Nichole Jones joining, this Midland agency had continued to be a local leader – having twice been recognised by Canstar Blue for ‘Overall Customer Satisfaction’.
‘There would scarcely be a rural, commercial or technology committee that Cambell has not contributed to at some stage over the past two decades. He has additionally participated in the network’s governance through his roles as WA Chairman and as a Board Director. His input and valuable grass roots understanding of all things real estate has earned him the respect of the network’s membership’ said Mr Ellis. This is only the second time this award has been given to a West Australian Member which is quite an achievement.
The Kaye Heath Memorial Award was presented to Cambell before 350 agents from across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific who warmly acknowledged his achievements.
