About Us

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) is the peak body representing real estate professionals across Queensland.

As the State’s most trusted and influential advocate for real estate business interests and private property investor rights for more than a century (since 1918), the REIQ remains committed to ensuring the highest levels of professionalism and good governance are achieved through regulatory compliance and the advancement of best practice standards of professional conduct.

The REIQ’s enduring purpose is to ensure real estate professionals stay a step ahead by leading a sustainable industry that continues to make significant contributions to the Queensland economy and to strengthen conditions for those working within the industry.

The REIQ serves a member and client base comprising almost 30,000 property professionals. This includes principal licensees, salespeople, property managers, auctioneers, business brokers, buyers’ agents, residential complex managers, and commercial and industrial agents in Queensland.

Collectively, Queensland’s real estate sector directly employs over 46,000 people (the State’s second largest employer), is one of the top four industries which comprises over 50% of Queensland’s small business landscape, and pays the highest amount of State tax each year (2021/22: $8 billion).

Above all, the peak body aims to:

  • Make important contributions to government legislation and policy settings

  • Advocate for balanced regulations for the benefit of all stakeholders

  • Provide industry-leading training for real estate professionals

  • Deliver timely, innovative and market-driven education programs

  • Promote risk management and increase professional competence

  • Implement effective and compliant professional standards

  • Contribute to substantial industry research and development.

We help more than our members

The REIQ’s vision statement, for the real estate profession, extends our support and expertise beyond our membership to the broader real estate profession and community. We believe everyone should be able to make educated, informed decisions about buying, selling or renting property and business in Queensland.
