The RateMyAgent 2018 Agent of the Year Awards are coming! Nominees announced here. As part of RMAOpen 2018 these are the only industry awards which recognise the most consistently recommended agents and agencies. Secure your tickets here.


  • How are the results calculated?

    Customer satisfaction is king! Your RMA Score (the number of reviews received as a proportion of the properties you sell) is one of the most important factors in winning an Award. You receive this score in your Monday emails from us (not getting them? Click here). In addition to this we look at the number of sold properties (in 2017) and the total sales value of property sold (in 2017).

  • By chasing your reviews and bumping your RMA Score, this will help you win an Agent of the Year Award. You receive this score in your Monday emails from us (not getting them? Click here). For more details on how to win a 2018 award check out our blog posts here.

  • To be eligible for an award in a suburb you must have at least 5 sales with vendor reviews within that suburb during 2017. If no agents/agencies in a suburb met this minimum requirement, an award will not be issued for that suburb.

  • The award rankings for 2018 take into account; the total sales value, properties sold and total unique seller recommendations (in 2017).

  • The same metrics are used to calculate the Agency of the Year awards but rather, combines the total properties sold, total sales value and unique seller recommendations of each agent.

  • There are two types of tickets for sale; 1. General Pass - Full Access | 2. General Partners Pass - Awards Night Only. The "Full Access" pass must be purchased in order to purchase an "Awards Night Only" pass. To purchase more than one "Awards Night Only" pass, separate transactions need to be made through the ticket purchasing page. Early Bird tickets will be on sale from October 30 until November 6 December 31, 2017 (use voucher code: EARLYBIRD2018). All tickets are subject to eligibility and availability. Buy tickets here.

  • Any real estate agent or agency is eligible to purchase an Early Bird ticket - simply use the voucher code: EARLYBIRD2018 when purchasing your tickets through the links on this page from 9AM (AEST) October 30, 2017 till 11:59PM November 6 11:59PM December 31, 2017 (AEST). 2017 Agent of the Year Award winner? Keep an eye on your emails on Thursday October 26, 2017 (hint, hint). Not receiving our Monday emails? (Click here to re-subscribe.) Click here to get tickets.

  • No. But there will be a limited number of Early Bird tickets released in early November so keep an eye and ear out to see if you're eligible.

  • A "Full Access" ticket to RMAOpen gives you access to all the seminars at the conference and the 2018 Agent of the year Awards Night. Tickets to attend just the Awards night are available for partners, but must be purchased with a "Full Access" ticket (it's for your significant other).

  • Unfortunately, there are no refunds but you're more than welcome to nominate someone to take your place. Simply email rmaopen@ratemyagent.com with your ticket details and their name, phone number and email address.

  • RMAOpen 2018 is available to all real estate agents - you don't need to be nominated to attend.

  • Not to worry - email us at rmaopen@ratemyagent.com and we'll be happy to reissue your ticket OR simply show up on the day with photo identification and our friendly staff will be able to assist (the second option will hold you up on the day - no one likes waiting).

  • Please Note: The "Awards Night Only" ticket can only be purchased with a "Full Access" ticket - it's a ticket for you to bring your partner to the awards evening. Additional booking fees apply. Only one partner pass can be purchased per transaction. Buy tickets here.

  • RMAOpen will be held on February 22, 2018 at the Metropolis Events, Level 4, Southgate Shopping & Restaurant Precinct. 3, Southbank, Melbourne.

  • For the Male and Female Agent of the Year - Rising Star, yes you could have. Nominations for these awards closed on 7 January 2018.

  • Yes. We've sorted flights deals with Flight Centre and accommodation deals with The Langham Melbourne, Quay West and Sofitel Melbourne on Collins. See the specifics of the deals here.
