We have extensive experience in helping real estate employers defend employment claims and provide the specialist representation required to secure the best outcomes available.

Engaging a lawyer is expensive, but REEF representation is complimentary when you join. In the last 12 months alone, we helped members resolve more than 400 serious disputes before they made it to the Fair Work Commission or the Fair Work Ombudsman.

Workplace relations is a complex and ever-changing environment, so it’s essential to stay up to date. That’s why REEF works hard to ensure you have all the information you need at your fingertips.

From regular email updates and quarterly newsletters to fact sheets and notifications about changes to the modern awards and rates of pay, REEF is on hand to provide you with the right information.

REEF works closely with real estate employers to ensure the information and resources we provide meet members’ needs and requirements.


A People Management System to meet your needs.

When you join REEF, you receive complimentary access to the People Management System. Accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the system allows you to centralise all your employment records and manage your employees through each stage of the employment life cycle.

The People Management System gives you access to specific modern awards, wage information, template employment contracts and commission structures, HR workflows, position descriptions, checklists and more. You can even set alerts and reminders for important dates, like licence and certificate renewals, CPD deadlines and insurance payments.

REEF has sub-licensed the system from EnableHR, ensuring members have complimentary access.


Effective promotion of the industry’s workplace interests.

As a registered organisation under the Fair Work Act, REEF is the principal voice for real estate employers. We take the lead role in lobbying for changes aimed at enhancing employment flexibility for the industry.

When the industry is faced with legislative change, we actively represent the interests of all real estate employers. While others sit on the sidelines, we roll up our sleeves and fight on your behalf to ensure any changes to the workplace relations framework best serve your interests.
