"The modern real estate co-operative"

The EAC story

Estate Agents Co-operative or EAC was established by a group of seven real estate agents in 1960 to help agencies meet the challenges of the time. While our purpose hasn’t changed, today we are network of more than 300 member agents from independent and franchise agencies, based in Australia, bringing like-minded agents together, providing the support you need.

We enable and inspire real estate agents to work together to build strong, prosperous and sustainable businesses that are well-equipped to cope with the modern era. We provide end to end support to independent and franchise organisations via a comprehensive suite of real estate support services, including data, marketing, forms and membership services and we advocate on our members’ behalf at a government level on changes impacting our industry.

As a Co-operative our operations and relationship with members are governed by our rules.
