( — September 12, 2013) Newcastle, NSW —  Australia’s leading real estate network PRDnationwide recently held its Annual Awards Gala at a dinner held at the Brisbane City Hall. The awards are held to recognise the outstanding contributions and achievements of the PRDnationwide offices around the country. 

Mark Kentwell is the Managing Director and Principal of the PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie operations. Kentwell secured the Top Principal of the Year for the franchise network, an honor he also scooped during the PRDnationwide annual awards in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.  

Kentwell’s colleague, George Rafty, took the Top Salesperson of the Year Award, while the PRD Newcastle Office took the prestigious Top PRDnationwide Office Award. It was a big night for Kentwell, who also took home the award for Top Auction Agent in the group which comprises of 100 offices Australia wide.

Kentwell is dedicated to bringing more people into the PRD team and helping them create the future and lifestyle they want for themselves and their families. He works with an incredible marketing and support team that is dedicated to property sales, ensuring that every client receives strategic advice to create a premium on their property. 

An emotional Kentwell, who has ranked 15th and 26th in the Real Estate Business Magazine Top 100 Agents in Australasia survey 2012 & 2103, attributed the success of the Newcastle PRD office and the individual accolades bestowed on its members to the commitment, perseverance and talent of the staff.

“One of the most important things you need to acknowledge when you win an award or an accolade as a salesperson is the effort of the people that work with you, alongside of you and behind the scenes,” he said. “A lot of people don’t realize that no matter how good you might be as an individual, without the support of these people around you, these awards can’t happen.”

Kentwell is known for consistently achieving new record prices on sales and fewer days on market. In fact, he has sold the highest number of homes at auction compared to other agents in the Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie or Newcastle in the last 5 years.

Kentwell is a professional real estate coach and speaker, and has been described as inspiring, motivating and full of ambition. His impressive combination of energy and experience has made him one of the most talked about agents in Newcastle.
