Whether you are looking for a career change or a career start or you are a local who wants to help clients with their biggest financial decision, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. Join our dynamic offices in the Wagga Wagga and start your sales career working in the real estate environment you have always wanted to be in.

The Challenge

You’ve probably heard that real estate has the highest paid sales staff, so no wonder the role attracts the very best people. However, listing real estate is far from easy; the survival rate of people starting in sales roles is less than 10% within two years.

Why is this?

Think about it, you’re new to real estate selling and you’re trying to convince home owners that selling their most valuable asset, the biggest financial transaction of their life, should be handed over to a rookie. These home owners already know who the selling “super stars” are in the local community, their faces are all over the For Sale signs and the home owner wants them to sell it – not you.

So what happens to rookies? 

Rookies are often shown a desk, given a phone and a list of properties which might be no more than a local phone book (perhaps in electronic form) and left to get on with it ALONE. Without any training they struggle through the work and spend
hours prospecting continuously hearing “you’re who?” and “why would I want your help?” When rookies finally get their first appraisal they are then overwhelmed by the complexity of closing a listing and selling the home.

That is how it is for rookies in many agencies but not with us!

Our approach to rookies is entirely different. Read on and find out how we can ensure your success from the very first day you join our team!

 
SO WHAT ARE WE OFFERING TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS?

High Quality Personalised and Market Specific Training

PRD stands for Property, Research, Development and PRDnationwide have a philosophy of a scientific and systematic approach to RE sales; that is why we are so successful. We don’t just make it up as we go – we have a plan for success.

PRDnationwide is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), allowing the company to present compulsory real estate training qualification courses to members of the public as well as the PRDnationwide team.

Here at the PRDnationwide Wagga Wagga we support the global learning on offer with our own a professional weekly sales meetings  run by our principal Simon Freemantle, himself a successful local agent. Simon’s focus is to help each individual maximise their sales opportunities.

Watch and Learn

From the start you will be mentored by one of our highly experienced local agents. One of our team who understands and is succeeding in Wagga Wagga and understands our market at a detailed and personal level. This alone will give you a wealth
of information and examples that you can absorb so that this becomes a natural part of your dealings with clients before you have to do it alone.

Do and Learn

You will gradually be given tasks and guided in developing your skill across all parts of a real estate sale. Great agents become successful through knowing how to develop new leads – there is no short-cut to this process; no lead no sale. That is why we work so hard to develop your skills in prospecting as our first stage in training.

The good news is that there is a healthy incentive package to support this and PRDnationwide take the same systematic approach to this as with the other parts of the selling process.

Is there a better way to build a real estate career than this? We don’t think so!

 
THIS IS A GREAT ROLE BUT HOW STRONG IS OUR BUSINESS?

PRDnationwide Network

We are a proud member of the PRDnationwide network, owned and supported by Colliers International. No other Australian real estate franchise is owned and supported by one of the world’s largest commercial real estate companies.

Why is this important to you? In simple terms, information technology, global reach, innovation in systems and processes are things businesses need to succeed. You can be assured that our network and its resources keep us in front of the independents of other franchises that can’t match PRDnationwide’s global strength and know how.

Also, no Australian franchise business can match PRDnationwide in the field of property research. With an annual corporate investment in excess of $1million, our analysts produce comprehensive local and national market reports for you to use in your
sales presentations that aid greatly in the listing and selling process.
