Work for the area’s largest most successful agent–extensive Real Estate training
Great opportunity! Much more than a sales job, build a long term career with a great business. Benefit from incredible exposure @ Robina Town Centre.
Tired of selling widgets? Need a new challenge? Build a real career in a sales sector that touches everyone – real estate.
We’ve all heard about the glass ceiling; have you heard about the mirror ceiling? You know, you look up and all you can see is what you are doing now, more and more of the same, no way to move forward; same problems, same solutions and worst of all same outcomes.
Where is the challenge, reward and recognition in that? While it is impressive to forge a presence in sales within a specialised area of industry or services ultimately you are only important to a very small number of people in that sector. All those jobs need to be done and all of those products and services need to be sold; absolutely good work, but there are definite limits to growth. If you are reading this then you are already at that limit.
Now is the time to jump on a different ladder and climb around that mirrored ceiling and go above it in an industry with no financial limits. An industry where when you put in the time to evolve your selling skills there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Consider a professional career in real estate. Forget the amateur players and join an established but modern, sound but innovative real estate business –it really is possible to have it all.
SO WHAT ARE WE OFFERING TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS?
High Quality Personalised and Market Specific Training
Real Estate may look easy at the open for inspection. Certainly having beautiful homes to sell does help. But in reality the real sale started many months before. Gaining the right to sell a home is a very sophisticated journey built on a relationship of trust and expertise with the owner. As agents we guide home owners and investors through one of their biggest financial transactions and that takes incredible skill.
To acquire specific skills to sell real estate you will need professionally relevant training. This is critical to your start up success with us. We offer you a clear training and mentoring process for the first two years with us including the industries best training and on-going coaching program to ensure your long term success.
We have our own First National Network training academy, South East Queensland Academy. No matter what level of experience you are at there are targeted courses to equip and hone your skills. Ongoing mentoring programs support you post training to translate your learning into effective selling skills. We don’t just give you a few good ideas we work with you to prepare you for selling success. Check it out for yourself at www.seqacademy.com
Watch and Learn
From the start you will be a part of our sales team of experienced agents, working with each of them in stages to see a multitude of different ways to implement the techniques. This will give you a wealth of information and examples that you can absorb so that they become a natural part of your dealings with clients in the future.
Do and Learn
You will gradually be given tasks and guided in gaining proficiency in each. Successful agents become successful through developing leads – there is no short-cut to this process; no lead no sale. That is why we work so hard to craft your skills in developing leads as our first stage in developing your proficiency. The good news is that there is a healthy incentive package to support this so you will be rewarded for your efforts from the start.
PETER WHITCROFT, YOUR MENTOR
Guiding your learning is our business owner and licensee Peter Whitcroft who has had a wealth of personal selling experience and knowledge about our market.
Peter’s whole career has been in Real Estate starting as a youngster almost straight from school. Following an award winning career in Real Estate sales in Melbourne, Peter saw the light and moved to the Gold Coast in 1987 to establish his own award winning business. Peter is now a business owner with a focus on developing solid business systems and supporting his staff to be their very best.
Peter is no longer a ‘young gun’ with a few years personal stellar success that you will have to compete against. Peter is a Principal focused on running the business and has done this very successfully through all the different market cycles to ensure the success of the entire team.
Peter will guide you in a systematic way through all the parts of the business and residential listing and selling processes at a speed that suits your current experience and learning style. Peter will ensure you see how these skills and tools are implemented in practical circumstances, allowing you time to develop your own wording to suit your style without losing sales while you are learning the Real Estate business.
One of Peter’s strategic business decisions was to move an established business into the Robina Town Centre in 2000. This gives us, and you, walk by traffic of over 50,000 people a year. Being part of south east Queensland biggest retail centre gives you direct touch access to more buyers than any other agency in the country. What an advantage you offer your prospective home owner.
Join a business that manages hundreds of local rental properties. Why is this important to our sales people? Because that’s a huge number of property owners and investors that we are serving every week. What a great network of contacts and opportunities as they buy and sell property today and in the future. That gives you access to in-house opportunities many other offices just can’t match.
All this means that our team sells homes on a consistent basis regardless of the market conditions and state of the nation because we have the exposure, technology and reputation to reach every potential buyer when we put a property to market.
We are proud members of the First National network. We have access to all the benefits of a national network without being encumbered with massive franchise fees because we are a cooperative. This means every dollar paid in fees paid to the network is returned in a dollar of value to our business creating value for marketing, technology, systems and processes to support your selling success.
We have built a business over 27 years based on our dedication to the Gold Coast area. Operating from the Robina Town Centre we cover the heart of the Gold Coast including Robina, Varsity Lakes, Mudgeeraba and Merrimac. This greater Robina area, as we like to call it, is a thriving part of the Gold Coast from the prestige of Bond University to the growing IT community at Varsity Lakes and a variety of business choosing to open near the train station to Brisbane.
Varsity Lakes is emerging as Australia’s Silicon Valley with a concentration of technology business setting up offices. As more and more creative professionals are able to work, wherever their fingertips and a phone take them, they are deserting miserable Melbourne and soulless Sydney for the family friendly lifestyle of the Queensland Coast.
All of this contributes to a solid Real Estate market that is not as prone to the fluctuations of the Australian economy or as reliant on local tourist volumes. We are the stable middle of the market and the size and pricing of our homes reflect that. No wonder Peter has been here so long.
you will be doing business ten minutes from home. Professional sales representatives with reputable firms have enviable profiles and prestige within their communities. A true real estate professional has a level of public recognition unmatched in any other industry.
The Right Financial Package
We understand it takes time and resources to build a Real Estate selling career. That’s why we offer a base retainer plus commission package. We don’t want you starving to death before you have a chance to reach your selling potential.
You will be earning commission after the initial basic 3 month training program on a sliding scale reflecting your growing autonomy. Peter wants you to learn your craft and develop your local knowledge so that by the end of your transition to solo real estate agent you too will be a recognised local authority.
We know the value of professional sales skills and how to help you evolve yours within the specialised context of real estate. You may have considered joining other RE agencies or even spent time with another agent but if you really want to reach your maximum sales potential you’ll need to join us.
That’s what we offer the right candidates at First National Robina
…. And that’s how we will help you build your real estate selling career with us!
