5 Things to Know About a Career in Real Estate Sales
Historically, real estate has always been a male-dominated industry. However, the wind of change is gusting through as Coronis was awarded with the Diversity Major Independent of the Year by REB at the Women in Real Estate Awards. Our main goal is to strive towards equality in the industry and inspire more women to be leaders in our team. Here are the top 5 things to know if you are thinking of joining this career path.
Take your career in your own hands
This industry can be spontaneous, unpredictable and overwhelming, but don’t let it scare you – true success awaits if you commit to it. At Coronis, we provide all the resources for you to become successful, so it’s up to you how you want to achieve your success. We are here to help you succeed with conveyancing, mortgage, and a leadership team, support network, building and pest services to support you through the real estate endeavours.
A little bit of spice
If you are looking to spice up your career, this industry is for you. Real estate is one of those industries where two days are never the same. No two houses are ever the same – nor are the people who you’ll come across.
Work hard, play hard
Determination, unwavering attitude and a commitment to customer service are the main attributes you need in this industry. It’s not a standard 9 to 5 job as you will need to commit to your clients in order to make their dreams come true. Sometimes it will mean that you need to be there for them during the weekends or after standard office hours. But don’t let this knock you off the grid – we will make sure to reward your hard work accordingly with financial freedom and flexible working arrangements to suit your goals and lifestyle.
There are not many professions where you can say that you’ve changed someone else’s life. It’s a true customer service industry as it’s about making your client’s dreams come true by matching the right property with the right buyer. As a real estate agent, you will get to facilitate to one of life’s biggest moments – buying and selling a house.
You’ll need a licence
Ready to get started and pursue your goals? The first step is education. To start your career as a real estate agent, you will need to get a licence to operate in your state. We highly recommend you check out REAA and NREL which are industry leading education and licence providers in the real estate industry.
