It’s possible you may never have considered working in real estate before. Even if you had you may have wondered how you could make a start.
At Prudential Real Estate we have spent the last 30 years developing a training system that takes away all the guesswork. And if you have what it takes to be a success in this industry we will show you how to turn your career dreams into a reality. Find out about Prudential Real Estate
Real estate is really, really tough. Not physically tough, but mentally gruelling. It’s not for the faint-hearted. Sorry, there’s no other way to say it.
But, having said it, we should also add that it can be the most rewarding career imaginable.
Our research shows that certain people are most likely to do well;
We also know that candidates who have worked in face-to-face roles with the general public learn quickly and adapt easily to the work of a real estate agent. For example, people who have had a successful career in retail sales, as a company representative or in some types of service jobs will often excel in real estate - they love to work with and serve others.
The one thing we are looking for above all else is someone with a high level of integrity; someone with consistent moral and ethical standards. Without these internal characteristics you will not fit within our company culture nor be able to adhere to our company values - see below.
Excellence is the quality of being outstanding, of excelling, of being the very best at what we do … and our every action is measured against this standard, every day.
Your word is law. If you say you will do something everyone can rely on you doing what you say. This sometimes extends to things you do not say but are simply expected of a professional person working at Prudential Real Estate.
We work in a harmonious team environment where we care for our colleagues, our clients, our customers and anyone we come into contact with in our day-to-day dealings in the community.
We are all on a path of growth, aiming to be the very best we can be, and you are surrounded by others who will help you grow and learn; who will support you when you fall; who will cheer you on as you struggle with your professional ups and downs.
Nothing worthwhile can be achieved without hard work. When you add learning and self-improvement the results are amazing.
Although there is an award rate of pay in NSW that governs salaries and allowances for the real estate industry it is not enough to get most people excited.
Ours is a performance based industry. The better you are at serving the needs of your clients the more you will earn. The more clients you serve in an excellent fashion the more you will earn and the more your clients will refer you to their friends, relatives and colleagues.
As a general rule, however, we would expect a successful real estate salesperson working in the Macarthur and following our sales systems to earn $100,000 per annum within 3 years. Many in our industry earn $200,000 or more every year.
What could you do if you were enjoying an income like this?
Firstly, there is no cost, except the cost of obtaining a certificate of registration.
We will teach you what it takes to succeed. So long as you stick with what you learn from the use of our sales systems your income will grow each year and your career satisfaction will soar.
You will learn how a real estate agency generates business, how we create a database of contacts and serve the needs of those considering the sale of their property.
You will learn how a sale occurs, how we manage open homes and feedback to clients, how we negotiate the highest and best price for each property and how we manage the legal requirements of a sale including contracts.
You will learn what our clients need during the sale process and how to deliver the level of service that makes our company such an outstanding success in the community.
You will learn how to present our range of service products to property owners assisting and supporting them as they make some difficult choices before putting their property on the market.
We teach the first module, Prospecting for new business, from your commencement. Additional modules are taught as you reach competence with each preceding module. Our object is to turn out fully trained, professional property agents and the foundation element is proper and thorough training.
The first step in the recruitment process is for you to consider what you want.
If, after reading everything on this page, you think real estate sales would suit you then you are invited to submit your details for our consideration. You can do this by clicking on the APPLY button at the bottom of this page.
Once we receive your application we will be in touch with you within 3 business days. We will respond in one of three ways;
Part of the interview process will be a short aptitude test (don’t worry, no maths questions). We may also ask you to attend more than one “second interview”. And we may ask you to attend a group interview with our sales team.
This may seem like an exhaustive procedure. And it is! But it’s done for very good reason.
Firstly, we want only the best possible candidates to work on our team. If you were already a member of our team you would appreciate this fact. The better we all are as individuals the better the team will be as a whole.
Secondly, we don’t want to start the wrong person by accident and have them discover later that they don’t like working in real estate. After all, they will probably be leaving a good job to join us and may not be able to return to that job after leaving real estate.
So, I hope you don’t mind if we seem overly thorough.
Once you have been selected as a future team member we will expect your commitment to the following;
In NSW you cannot work in a real estate agency without first obtaining a Certificate of Registration. This is a document issued by Fair Trading NSW after you have successfully completed a basic education course about the practice of real estate. Most courses last for a week or less. Some are conducted on weekends. And sometimes, Prudential Real Estate facilitates these courses in our training rooms at Campbelltown.
We can assist you with this process. The cost varies from one training company to another but is generally $400.00 to $700.00.
As a real estate salesperson you can only be rostered on to work five days out of any seven. One of those days will always be Saturday which may mean you will occasionally miss family and social events. This is part of the price you pay to be a success in real estate.
The hours can be very long, particularly in the early years and it is not unusual for days to begin at 7.00am and end at ten in the evening. There is a tendency for new salespeople to work too many hours.
Our system requires an enormous amount of dedication. The primary focus, however, is on actions completed, not hours worked.
As in most professions a mastery of time is critical. Truly successful real estate achievers have plenty of free time. They have mastered their time-management skills.
You will need the wholehearted support and approval of your family.
Real estate can be very demanding and puts pressure on family life. The bonds need to be strong to withstand such pressure. By focussing on the ultimate benefits of a successful career your family will feel part of the team.
Real estate agents often suffer from a poor public image. You will need to separate yourself from this perception by learning to be a professional from day one. It will take to time to earn respect and trust from members of our community. Our System is based solely on Client Benefits - Following our system will quickly enable you to win the respect of your clients.
In real estate, the sale is not so much when someone decides to purchase a property. The true sale is when a person grants you the right to represent them as their agent for the sale of their property. What you sell is yourself, your Company and the service and benefits our agency can provide to the seller.
The sellers are your clients and their interests are of paramount importance. By remembering this principle and practising a policy of total client care, you will receive many recommendations. The better you care for your clients the more successful your career will be. A struggling real estate agent is often a real estate agent who has neglected their clients.
Remember, people of the highest integrity are very popular with their clients.
