NSW Government appoints property services commissioner

NSW’s First Property Services Commissioner

The NSW Government has appointed John Minns as the state’s first Property Services Commissioner.

The role will be a fundamental part of ensuring a strong, vibrant property sector, responsive to the needs of property services professionals. The Property Services Commissioner will sit independently of Fair Trading and will report directly to the Secretary of the Department of Customer Service and Minister for Better Regulation.

The Property Services Commissioner will reflect the successful model taken by the Building Commissioner to reform the building and construction sector and work with the Property Services Expert Panel and the NSW Government to drive positive reform to support consumers and streamline services delivered by the regulator to agents and property service professionals.

John Minns brings more than 25 years of experience as a real estate business owner and agent.

Most recently he was Managing Director of  Canberra-based Independent Property Group and is a previous Director of Academy of Real Estate Services where he worked to improve professional development and training opportunities.

“At a time of unprecedented change and rapid digital transformation, I am looking forward to working with leaders across the industry to deliver improved consumer outcomes, a vibrant and sustainable NSW property sector and continued innovation,” Mr Minns said.

Commissioner Minns will commence his appointment on 6 December, 2021.
