The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) is gratified to announce the successful establishment of a Multi-Stakeholder Group comprising both itself and estate agency sector representative organisations. The underlying objective in creating the Multi-Stakeholder Group, which meets on a monthly basis, is to identify, discuss and, of course, hopefully resolve the many pertinent concerns, issues and challenges which members of the estate agency profession, in its many differentiated spheres, generally encounter. Due to the activities of the Multi-Stakeholder Group significant successes in this respect have already been achieved.
The Multi-Stakeholder Group presently comprises representatives at the highest level of:
the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) – www.eaab.org.za;
the Institute of Estate Agents of South Africa (IEASA) – www.ieasa.co.za;
the National Association of Managing Agents (NAMA) – www.nama.org.za;
the National Property Forum (NPF) – www.npfsa.co.za;
the Real Estate Business Owners of South Africa (REBOSA) – www.rebosa.co.za;
the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) – www.sapoa.org.za.
As and when other accredited estate agency sector representative organisations are identified, they will also be invited to join the Multi-Stakeholder Group and to participate in its deliberations.
Due to the flexible and effective, yet formalised, constitution and functioning of the Multi-Stakeholder Group, practicing professional estate agency practitioners can rest assured that the problems and issues which they daily confront in an evolving and frequently volatile real estate environment will not only receive attention at the highest level but also be suitably addressed in the interests of both the estate agency profession and the consumers that the profession serves.
