OPPORTUNITIES FOR REAL ESTATE AGENTS TO GROW!

About 15,000 people worked as real estate agents in New Zealand in 2017. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment expects this number to grow by 3.4% – to about 15,510 – by 2020. This is due to:

  • The current construction boom, which will create more properties to sell between now and 2020

  • Our ageing population increasingly selling their properties to move into retirement homes

  • Ageing real estate agents retiring and creating vacancies.

MOST REAL-ESTATE AGENTS ARE SELF-EMPLOYED

According to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, almost 70% of real estate agents are self-employed.

Real estate agents work for agencies, which can be independent, or franchises of real estate chains.

CAREER PATHWAYS 

New to the industry?

For those with no prior experience working in real estate, becoming a salesperson is the best way to get your foot in the door. Once you find a real estate agency that will host you as a learner, you can enroll in the New Zealand Certificate in Real Estate (Salesperson) (Level 4) programme.


 

After you complete all of the requirements of the programme, including assessments and a face-to-face interview, you will need to apply for a Salesperson’s licensee from the Real Estate Authority (REA). This licensee allows you to legally work as a real estate salesperson and sell property within New Zealand.

Please note that you can only apply for the licensee after you’ve been awarded the qualification. The licensee application is a separate process that is independently managed by REA and can take approximately a month.

 

The sooner you complete the programme and receive your certificate, the sooner you can apply for your licensee and start selling property.

 

Please apply in writing to MANSION NZ and send your contact telephone details so we can call you for an initial conversation.
