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 mirrored 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.

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.



There are two key variables for the successful sale of property: the competence of the agent and the effectiveness of our marketing. Here at First National Westwood, we are focused on ensuring every consultant reaches their fullest potential by offering you start-up and ongoing training and extensive marketing support backed 40 years’ experience in Wyndham and by the strength of a national identity.

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 homeowners 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 some the industries best independent trainer, our own First National Network training programs and on-going coaching programs to ensure your long term success.

No matter what level of experience you are at, you will have access to targeted courses to equip and hone your skills. Ongoing mentoring programs by our principal and senior staff 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!

Watch and Learn

From the start, you will be a part of the sales team of experienced agents, so you will see a multitude of different ways to implement techniques. This alone 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 systematically be given tasks and guided in gaining proficiency in each. Successful agents become successful firstly through developing leads – there is no shortcut to this process; no lead no sale. That is why we work so hard to craft your skills in creating and nurturing leads as the 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.

Rob Westwood, Your Mentor

Guiding your learning is our Principal and licensee Rob Westwood who has had a wealth of personal selling experience and knowledge about our market. Following a full career in the building industry and joining the business in 2002 Rob has developed into a leading agent in the Wyndham area as well as frequently positioned in the top 10% of the First National network. In a network now well over 500 offices this is significant.

Rob still remembers his own learning progress and is focused on guiding you in a systematic way through all the parts of listing and selling at a speed that suits your current experience and learning style. Rob will ensure you see how these skills and tools are implemented in practical circumstances and allowing you time to develop your own wording to suit your style without losing sales while you are learning.

It could be you – Our selection process

We plan for success, not failure, which is why we only start people whom we believe have the inbuilt qualities of an effective sales person specifically for the real estate industry.  The importance of our sales requires extensive and finely tuned sales skills quite different to other sales jobs. The first part of this process is the careful selection of staff to join our team using a sales specific selection system called Sales Inventory Profile (SIP) which identifies if you have the inherent ability to sell, even if you have no prior sales experience.

We won’t let you give up your current role just to ‘have a go’. If we offer you a role it will be because we can see you have the right ingredients needed to list and sell real estate and you can confident plan a professional career with us.

Our Office

Started in 1976 by Rob’s father Bob Westwood we have been proud members of the First National network since 2000. 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.

Our Community

We have built a business over 40 years based on our dedication to the Wyndham area. Operating from the Werribee we extend to Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit, Wyndham Vale, Manor Lakes, Werribee South, Laverton, Little River and Point Cook. Wyndham is a solid real estate market with the third strongest growth across Australia it is not prone to the fluctuations of the Australian economy or reliant on a single industry. We are the stable first home buyer, middle of the market and the size and pricing of our homes reflect that.

Talking of community, selling real estate is ultimately all about belonging in a community. Yes, you definitely have to work evenings and weekends, but you won’t spend that time on the snail run to the city or the redeye to somewhere even worse– 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 sales area.

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. Rob 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 Westwood …. And that’s how we will help you build your real estate selling career with us!



We have a sophisticated and vigorous selection procedure which starts with an online selling capacity assessment, called Sales Inventory Profile or ‘SIP’. This process ensures that if we offer you a position in our business, you can plan on building a long-term career with us. We choose our staff carefully, support them properly and many years later they are still selling with us.
