Leading information and market intelligence platform for Australia’s real estate sector REB (realestatebusiness.com.au) has today revealed its new-look content team.
The team has been expanded considerably to underpin the growth of the brand and cements REB’s position as the information platform for Australia’s real estate agents, principals and property managers.
For over a decade REB has supported the evolving real estate sector, with today’s announcement being the latest in a series of developments for the brand to propel it into the 2020s.
Launched in 2007, REB includes daily breaking news and analysis for the real estate industry, the interactive web platform www.realestatebusiness.com.au, live streaming, the hugely-popular Secrets of the Top 100 Agents Podcast plus a number of events, including the REB Awards and REB Women in Real Estate Awards, which will be held in late 2020.
The brand also delivers the key benchmark reports for the nation’s real estate industry, including the REB Top 100 Agents, REB Top 50 Sales Offices, REB Top 50 Women in Real Estate and the REB Dealmakers.
Complementing REB is RPM (Residential Property Manager) launched in 2009 to support the property management sector.
The content team will be led by executive editor Phillip Tarrant, who is charged with the growth and development of REB and RPM as well as setting the content agenda.
He is supported by editor Emma Ryan and a team of dedicated property and business journalists including Grace Ormsby, Cameron Micallef and Hannah Dowling.
According to Alex Whitlock, director – Real Estate, Momentum Media, the reinforced content team arms REB and RPM with the resourcing and talent to boost the brand into the future while delivering enhanced value for commercial stakeholders.
“This is one of the strongest content teams in Australian real estate, with a collective depth of knowledge that is unique,” he said.
“Phillip has a solid reputation for his real estate and property journalism, in particular, for his hugely popular podcast shows. He’s informed, connected and respected for his analytical interpretation of real estate markets.
“Importantly for REB and RPM, he has a strong understanding of the business of real estate and can interpret sophisticated business and economic issues in a way that resonates with readers, listeners and viewers,” Whitlock said.
“Real estate is critical to the health of the national economy and is a sector in need of up-to-the-minute information and intelligence.
“Under Phillip’s stewardship, supported by his talented team of editors and journalists, REB will continue to thrive and help drive the ongoing growth of Australia’s real estate industry,” he said.
