Appointment of a Panel of Licensed Real Estate Agents

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are invited from licensed real estate agencies or individual licensed agents who wish to be considered for inclusion on a panel.

Enquiries may be made electronically to or via Vicki Thomas on 6566 3204

Closes 4pm Friday 11 August 2017

The full EOI document is available on Council’s website at

Australian Poetry Slam - Kempsey Heat
