Elevating the voice of Australia’s commercial real estate practices.

What is the REIA Commercial Agency Engagement Program
(Project CRE)?

It’s estimated that the Australian commercial and industrial sector is worth a combined $1.1 Trillion. Having just undergone a major disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s time to focus on supporting this important sector of our market. 

Part of the REIA Strategic Plan 2022-2025 (REIA 2025) includes better servicing commercial agencies, so REIA has partnered with commercial property management software company Re-Leased, to elevate the voice of Australia’s commercial real estate practices and provide much-needed support.


Why now?

0 %
of retail and trade businesses expected reduced cash flow during the COVID-19 pandemic
0 %

of retail businesses changed staff work location to ‘work from home’

0 %

of accommodation and food services businesses reduced staff work hours

What are we aiming for?

Our partnership with Re-Leased enables us to deliver an innovative new program to add value to commercial real estate, at no extra cost to practitioners.

Throughout the program we will:


Discover and listen to Australian commercial real estate practitioners 


Better understand the opportunities for REIA’s Member Institutes in commercial real estate 


Formulate and agree a program of works out to 2025


Ensure now and into the future real estate agents remain a critical component of commercial transactions
