Real Estate

  • Written by Felicity Moore

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland has launched a new real estate training website, timed to coincide when people are most likely considering a new career.

The site, MyRealEstateJobs.com.au offers advice and a wealth of information about the broad range of careers that a real estate qualification can deliver and also outlines the courses available through the state’s leading real estate training provider, the REIQ.

REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said with the dawn of a new year, people often reviewed their options.

“After the last of the Christmas lunch is packed away, people often start to think about returning to work and this is when they wonder if there might be a better career.

“Our new site, MyRealEstateJobs.com.au offers detailed information about all the jobs you can choose from when you have real estate qualifications.

“A real estate career isn’t limited to being a sales agent or a property manager. You can be an auctioneer, a buyer’s agent, a business broker, or an administrator, and you can also be your own boss if you choose to establish your own business,” she said.

The website showcases real life experiences from leading real estate professionals, including Ray White auctioneers Haesley Cush and Phil Parker, Place sales agent Cathy Richards, Re/Max property manager Katie Knight, and Harcourts principal Dane Atherton.

The website also offers prospective students the opportunity to attend a free session delivered by an experienced real estate professional, who will share the realities of a career in real estate.

“Our free Introduction To Real Estate sessions are always very popular because they give those who are thinking about a career change an understanding of what real estate is really like – the good bits and the challenges!” Ms Mercorella said.

To promote the new site, the REIQ launched a marketing campaign which began on Boxing Day.

The REIQ is the peak body for real estate profession and the leading provider of real estate training in Queensland, delivering a broad range of study options to anyone considering a career change. Courses can be done online and are self-paced, or there are classroom options available for those who like more support and guidance.
