Is there a better way to build a real estate career than this? Before you make a decision about where you want to be; consider this FACT!

90% of people who enter the real estate industry are gone within 2 years!


This is NOT what we are offering you, but it’s what 80% of real estate careers elsewhere are offering you.

You have a dream to list and sell property; you want to make a lot of money. Fair enough, who doesn’t, after all the real estate selling business is home to some of the world’s highest income earners and that’s a fact. Real estate also has one of the largest failure rates, something like 70% of new careers fail inside the first 12 months.


Think about it, you’re new to real estate selling and you’re trying to convince home owners that their most valuable asset should be handed to a rookie to sell. 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.


It’s a number’s game. Business owners give new sales people lists of people with hundreds and hundreds of potential contacts, , and you spend most of your week ringing them – making cold colds. Or they send you out knocking on hundreds of doors.

Is this fun? NO!

A small number of people will eventually get a property listing but most will fail or starve. Only the “fittest” will survive to become selling stars and that’s why it pays so well. otherwise who would bother with all that pain!


For a start how about NO COLD CALLING!

Why? Because the business owner here has more property to sell than he can handle; the results of a family who are focused on Real Estate in Penrith and have 30 years of serving our local community. That’s three decades of consistently exceeding our client’s expectations.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to take this competitive advantage and build your own career from it.


First of all this is a dual purpose role.

You with be a Personal Assistant to Darren Latty, Managing Director PRDnationwide Penrith. Darren has twenty years of selling experience in the region and his knowledge, network of contacts and sales record are considerable.

Darren’s world is fast moving and you will be in the thick of it. No amount of training programs will afford you the kind of learning you will get here. What he will look toward you for is turning his fast transaction flow into an orderly process. So, if you enjoy working with systems and turning spontaneous into planned and are keen to learn how the real estate industry works this will be an ideal partnership.

You will take responsibility for e-marketing programs, basic website maintenance and administrative work as required. You will gain a solid working knowledge of how a successful real estate office functions.

Your other key role is as a Buyers Agent. This involves presenting homes at Open Homes and then following up with potential buyers. As your confidence grows Darren will then teach you the art of closing a property sale.

Later these sale successes can become important components of why home owners should trust you with their listings. Instead of being a rookie you will be able to demonstrate selling success in the local community from real sales you have experienced.

While elsewhere new people to the industry are spending all week cold calling you will be doing a diverse range of activities from day one, work that will ultimately equip you to become a fully fledged listing real estate agent with the opportunity to uncap your income. Then you will be able to bid for new listings with credibility and without the ‘rookie’ tag.

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


30 YEARS STRONG: Our family has been successfully selling real estate in the region for 30 years.

Think about what that means. It means two generations of family have built and served a massive client base, not just home owners and buyers but project developers, architects, council planners, business and community leaders and local organisations. That’s the key reason Darren isn’t out cold calling all day; he gets a constant stream of referral business.


We have one of the largest property rent rolls in the region. This is important as it demonstrates our reputation in the market place. You don’t build big rent rolls without a well run business with a first class reputation. We currently have over 750 properties under our management.

Why else is this important to our sales people?

Because it means that we are serving a huge number of property owners and investors every week. What a great network of contacts, and opportunities as they buy and sell property today and in the future. That also gives you access to in-house opportunities that many other offices just can’t match.
