• Is a career in real estate for you?

    Working in real estate is both rewarding and challenging. Generally if you’ve got a bit of energy and enthusiasm, and you’re good with people, you’ll do well in real estate. However, you’ll also need a fair bit of expert knowledge and understanding of real estate in Western Australia.

    Real estate offers great flexibility with a variety of career paths to choose from, including property sales and property management in the residential, commercial, industrial and rural sectors.

    Plus, there are opportunities in strata, marketing, business broking, auctioneering and as a buyer’s agent.
