Sally Cameron claims national honours

Toop&Toop Sales Partner Sally Cameron has reached the pinnacle of Australian real estate after being recognised as the nation’s premier salesperson.

Ms Cameron claimed the prestigious award for 2020 ahead of six other nominees, some from high-profile agencies on the eastern seaboard.

She’s just the second South Australian to claim the national crown, joining 2007 winner Peter Veitch, who also was a member of the Toop&Toop team.

Ms Cameron learnt of the honour when the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) announced the winners of the 15th National Awards for Excellence.

Due to the measures currently in place surrounding COVID-19, the awards ceremony planned for April in Darwin was cancelled.


Ms Cameron has become accustomed to personal plaudits since entering the real estate industry but this most recent success is a clear highlight.

Her list of awards over the past decade is unparalleled in this state. They include:

  • REISA Awards of Excellence Gold Finalist – Residential Salesperson of the Year

  • REIA Awards of Excellence – Finalist Residential Salesperson of the Year (winner TBA)

  • ARERAS - SA Agent of the Year 2018-2019

  • Ranked No.26 in REB Top 50 Women in Australia 2019

  • AREA – 2019 Annual REA Excellence Awards: Agent of the year (top 4); Campaign schedule (Finalist)

  • Top agent, Toop&Toop annual awards, 2015-2019

“This is amazing – and richly deserved - recognition for Sally,” Toop&Toop Director of Residential Sales, Bronte Manuel, said.

“She is tenacious and has an amazing work ethic and, as a result, she consistently delivers outstanding results for her clients.

“She leaves no stone unturned in her pursuit of excellence and that’s why she’s the best.”

The national awards delivered a bonanza for Toop&Toop, with the South Australian agency inducted into the REIA Hall of Fame for the third time, an achievement unparalleled in the history of the REIA National Awards for Excellence.

Toop&Toop were inducted for winning Large Residential Agency of the Year at the national level in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

“It’s very humbling to be recognised on the national stage,” Mr Manuel said.

“We’re genuinely passionate about real estate in South Australia and we’ve always stuck to our strong family values.

“This latest award is testament to the hard work and professionalism of our entire team.”
