Own your own agency with the right real estate training

30 Dec 13

Being your own boss comes with many benefits, and the same holds true for a real estate career.

Owning your own agency means being in control. It not only gives you the freedom you need to make important business decisions, it also means that at the end of the day, you're the only person responsible for your success.

The sky's the limit for you to develop your real estate agency, and this includes everything from how much income you bring in to how your business expands.

As the boss, you'll also be able to set your own hours, deciding which business strategies work best for you and, if you have them, your employees.

There are many factors to take into account when deciding to own your own agency, including startup costs, hiring, the location of your office, developing a client base and much more. However, your first step needs to be proper real estate training.

Knowledge for agency success

Running an agency can be very different from working for one, and you owe it to yourself and your business to start out on solid footing.

The Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) offers a Diploma of Property Services, and since you'll likely already be hard at work in the market while you earn this diploma, REISA has made it easier to obtain by offering training blocks that can be tailored to your schedule.

Diploma units run on an ongoing basis, so REISA can help you get into the relevant real estate courses when the time comes.

Even if you've spent years in the industry, understanding the ins and outs of agency management can be an overwhelming task. By investing in the proper real estate training, you'll give yourself the edge you need to succeed.
