Timaru's Peter Wilson has been named the First National Group's top sales consultant for commercial, industrial and business sales.
And a second Timaru real estate agent, Mark McLeod, was awarded top performer of the year for exclusives sold. He also ranked the 11th top salesperson in the country.
The Timaru company was also announced the top commercial office at the franchise's Australasian conference.
Mr Wilson is the third generation to work in the family business established 93 years ago. A real estate agent since 1984, Mr Wilson believes developing and maintaining relationships with his clients and striving to fulfil their property needs is vital to his award wins.
"You get out of real estate what you put in," he said.
The present company, Reid & Wilson, was established in 1971 when two companies established in the 1920s, H A Wilson and Geo. Reid & Son, merged.
