What is EAC
The Estate Agents Co-operative (EAC) is the largest real estate co-operative in Australia.
What is a Co-operative?
"A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise."
The co-operative values:
Self-help – we help people to help themselves
Self-responsibility – we take responsibility and are acountable for our actions
Democracy – members have a say in the way we run our businesses
Equality – everyone is equal and all members get one vote
Equity – we carry out our business in a way that is fair and unbiased
Solidarity – we share interests and common purposes with our members and other co-operatives
Co-operatives are mutual organisations which are operated for the benefit of their members. Co-operatives are distinguished from other forms of organisation by their democratic structure and the fact that capital is used to service the common needs of the members, rather than to provide individual benefit. EAC is owned by the Members for the Members.
Our mission is simple: To be a high profile real estate co-operative that provides its members with the opportunity to enhance market share and profitability.
In 2007 we launched the realestateworld.com.au brand, the only totally independent industry owned and controlled online and offline market solution that is available to Agents and the Industry and the solution includes the web site and a suite of publications across New South Wales.
As a Co-operative our Members, the real estate agents are the shareholders, and it is for them and their industry that we exist. To this end we are not profit driven and strive to provide cost effective goods and services to the industry. This directly benefits our Members and in some cases the greater industry due to the competition we provide. We have also found that it keeps down the rates of other non industry third parties.
