Welcome. Join Professionals Thornton Real Estate and build a Property Management career to be proud of.

People who need people are the luckiest people in the world……” so the old Barbara Streisand song goes!

At Professionals Thornton Real Estate, we value people who understand that business, and especially real estate, is not about processes and products; it is about the people. How well we train and mentor our people determines how well our people service and support our clients. The Professionals Thornton team is focused on helping you grow into an extraordinary industry specialist.

We are the market leading agency in the West Brisbane area with the largest rent roll, and we are offering you the opportunity to join one of our three award winning offices. As a member of a large team, you will enjoy unequalled resources with room for skill development and career advancement.

We work in a portfolio environment managing approximately 130 properties each, so when you are fully trained you will be working across the full property management role. This is a job where you can truly manage a portfolio, not just react to ad-hoc interruptions all day; as we have front desk support to handle day-to-day contact with tenants and help with routine clerical tasks. We also have a specialist who does all the middle and end-of-month work. This leaves you free to focus on providing the sort of service to our landlords that has made us the success we are today.

You will be stepping into a well-structured existing rent roll, where there is nothing to clean up. Although every day is never the same as the last –which can be a challenge – proven systems are already in place to support you.

If you’re serious about furthering your career in real estate this may be the most important thing you will ever read! Before you decide where you need to be consider these facts:



We have built a business over 30 years based on our dedication to the West Brisbane area. As a result, our three offices which cover Ipswich, Goodna, Springfield and surrounding areas get more referrals, more returning clients, more coverage and more sales than any other agency. Join a business that manages over 2000 local properties and sells homes on a consistent basis, making it a regular award winner; including being the TOP listing office for Greater Brisbane in the Professionals network. Having one of the largest property rent rolls in the region is important as it demonstrates our reputation in the marketplace. You don’t build big rent rolls without a well-run business and maintaining a first class reputation.

Thornton’s is a proud member of The Professionals 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 success.

If you can see the opportunity offered at Thornton Real Estate and have a long-term view of developing a solid career in real estate, you need to talk to us.

If we choose you it won’t be just to ‘give you a go’ for a month or two. We are only interested in choosing people who are truly suited to a long term career in property management; a career we will support from the very first day with our reputation, our database, skill development and professional management processes.



Trainee Program focused on professional development

We never underestimate the complexity and sophistication of helping our landlords manage their biggest investment assets. The enormity of their trust means we need finely tuned management and administrative skills that are quite different to other jobs. We don’t leave you to work any of this out for yourself.

The first part of this process is the careful selection of staff to join our team using a sales specific selection tool called Sales Inventory Profile (SIP). While you will not be selling in this role you are managing relationships with our clients and that requires a specific style of person. We offer only the appropriate people a role with us; to ensure you can succeed and become a long-term member of our team.

When you start with us we offer you extensive initial training under the guidance of one of our Senior Property Managers who will show you how to perform each component of the process effectively before expecting you to learn the next. You will also participate in other on-site training with the Senior Property Managers from the other offices as well as attending external training, initially in our systems and then over time to keep you up to date with the industry, all paid for by the office.

All our training is focused on developing your skills and knowledge to allow you to confidently conduct sometimes difficult conversations that result in our landlords making the right decisions, appreciating your input and your professionalism.  Our focus is on being our landlords’ advocate, always supporting and working for them. We maintain integrity in all our dealings and show our tenants the respect they deserve, regardless of their circumstances.
Team Spirit and Co-operation

We have learnt to work as a team with great internal systems and specialist staff. Compare our office with those smaller offices where Property Managers are often working alone. With us, no one is expected to be a hero battling alone or unsure of the best course of action. If you get stuck, there is always someone to ask for ideas and a helping hand.

Each of our offices has five to seven Property Managers. This means you are amongst like-minded people, which is nice for comradery and energy on a daily basis and great for sharing the load with people who know what they are doing and can step in to cover each other for holidays and busy times.
