STARTING IN REAL ESTATE

Looking to get into real estate but don’t know where to start?

If you are passionate about commencing your career in real estate, obtaining your Certificate of Registration is a must! The Certificate of Registration is ASQA accredited and recognised by the NSW Fair Trading and it is built to provide you with the basic skills necessary for you to start a successful career in the real estate industry.

If you wish to sell or lease property in NSW, which includes giving advice or information on property, you must have competently completed the course. When you have successfully completed the course and have received your Statements of Attainment, you can submit them to the NSW Fair Trading, where they will then issue you with a Certificate of Registration. The overall process can take between 6-8 weeks.

There are several companies which offer the Certificate of Registration course and it may be completed online or in person at the relative institution. Here are a few accredited companies which may be worth investigating:

  • REINSW (Real Estate Institute of New South Wales) – www.reinsw.com.au or phone (02) 9264 2343
  • RETS (Real Estate Training Solutions) – www.rets.com.au or phone 1300 850 980
  • Think Real Estate – http://www.thinkrealestate.net.au/getting-started.aspx  or phone 1300 660 402
  • Real Estate Training – http://nsw.realestatetraining.com.au/course/category.php?id=1 or phone (02) 9987 2322

Congratulations, you now hold your very own Certificate of Registration… so what next? Look online for available jobs and call P3 Recruitment to support your search. Although you may not have real estate experience, your drive, motivation and people skills, along with your Certificate will certainly make you look attractive to potential employers.

If you feel ready to take your career to the next level you may wish to investigate how to obtain a Real Estate Licence. This qualification certifies you to manage your own agency or team of staff, meaning greater responsibility not only for yourself but also in the marketing, management and sale of property.
