This is a chance to make up lost ground and build a successful career in real estate sales.

Join our dynamic offices in the Newcastle CBD and at Speers Point and build your sales career working in the real estate environment you have always wanted to be in.

The Risk

If you are already in the industry or even if you are in another sales or property related area you will be aware that real estate sales has the highest paid sales staff. However these are the winners; fewer than 10% of people starting in sales get through the first two years. Entering this arena you are competing with the established selling “superstars” in the local community; their faces are on every for sale sign in the area and they are the people’s choice – not you!

Too often sales people: whether listing agents, buyers agents/managers or sales cadets are shown a desk, computer and phone and left to work it out themselves – with predictably bad results.

The Reward

A Buyer Manager with PRDnationwide Newcastle is part of a large, well organised team. You will work closely with our top listing agents and receive sales training including listing properties. You will be included in all the sales training which listing agents receive.

The Buyer Manager role is an opportunity to work at a professional level in real estate sales without starting at the bottom. An attractive package is provided and there are opportunities for bonuses through sales, leads and financial products.

As a Buyer Manager, you are empowered to focus on what is important to the business…and that’s about growing customer relationships. It’s a selling position without the pressure of hunting for the stock.

You have the dream job of helping clients find their dream home when looking for property for clients who may be overseas, interstate, or managing a busy family life and/or working full time leaves just a small window of time to view multiple dwellings every Saturday. And in building strong relationships, you build a client loyalty to you and ultimately to the business.  You are working with the best sales agents who are working for the vendor so you will have immense exposure to the relationship with the vendor, so providing a spring board into a Listing Role as you will already have a huge client base.

This is a five day per week job (including Saturday,) with an emphasis on developing relationships with buyers and other stakeholders. You will have the chance to use your existing knowledge and people skills while learning new things everyday.

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


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. We have ongoing training from experts in the real estate training field within our own network.

To help even more we have our own dedicated trainer here in our Newcastle offices; this trainer is always available for advice and guidance. In addition we have weekly training sessions conducted by our principal Mark Kentwell – an Australian top fifteen Selling Agent. This a huge benefit as you get trained by the best.

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


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.

It supports PRDnationwide through capital investment, business networks, career opportunities, intellectual resources and knowledge systems. We can therefore transact any real estate deal anywhere in the world with full support.

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 who 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 that aid greatly in the listing and selling process.


Mark started the PRDnationwide Newcastle office in 2005. The business has been developed systematically since that time to become the sales powerhouse it is today evidenced by the 400 properties sold in the last year. PRDnationwide Newcastle hold the PRDnationwide franchise for Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.


PRDnationwide Newcastle handles a massive range of types and values of properties. We have everything from entry level to multi-million dollar homes; properties listed include apartments and townhouses right through to fabulous, prestige homes. We are also currently involved in ‘off the plan’ projects which offer great opportunities for selling agents.

PRDnationwide Newcastle sell across the entire Newcastle and Lake Macquarie area giving you a much broader geographic area and value range than any capital city agency would. This means every lead you generate and every personal contact you develop can be followed up by the business. It is just one of several factors that allow the business to achieve consistent and high results.

Award Winning Sales Agents

While you will attend lots of training programs and we regularly have guest trainers attend our sales meetings nothing beats learning on the job when ‘the job’ is being performed by seasoned and incredibly successful professionals.

As a sales team the PRDnationwide Newcastle is an outstanding performer. Comparing the performance of all Australian PRDnationwide offices in 2012 Newcastle achieved:

  • #1 Agency Australia wide– 2012
  • #1 Selling Agent Australia wide – 2012
  • #1 Selling Principal Australia wide – 2012

Real Estate Business Magazine rated our top selling agent, George Rafty, #Nine nationally and the #One Regional agent nationally (outside of the capital cities). Mark Kentwell our selling principal achieved 15th nationally. This agency has talent – and knows how to use it!

Our team are dominant in the Newcastle market; if you scan local print advertising you’ll see that we run about three times the volume of advertising compared to each of our major competitors. We’re big and strong enough to run a monthly, in-room auction of five to 25 properties. Our auction day clearance rate averages 75%!

Our Offices and Resources

PRDnationwide Newcastle have offices in the CBD and in Speers Point. The offices are fully appointed with meeting rooms and dedicated, logically set up spaces for our support staff.  Initially you will work in both offices to learn as much as possible about our business. We have a young and highly motivated team who bring high energy and enthusiasm to everything they do – they’re our biggest assets.

Our scientific approach to RE sales shows in our careful selection and organisation of support staff: we have a list team to efficiently control the paperwork and a professional photographer, copywriter and paralegal to support our hard working sales team and property managers. That leaves you free to concentrate on your specialty: selling. You won’t be getting buried in doing all the paperwork yourself like with the smaller agents

Community Profile

PRDnationwide Newcastle believes in giving back to the local community – after all our team are all a part of it and share the benefits of the lifestyle and market on offer here. We are proud sponsors of the SurfAid Charity Breakfast and Hunter Animal Rescue. We love doing it and Newcastle people know who we are.
