Media release - 6 June, 2012
Careers night expected to attract big turnout in bouyant Perth market
A great turnout is expected at the inaugural Raine & Horne Careers Information Night in Perth on Tuesday 19th June, 2012, particularly in light of the news that the Perth property market has experienced two consecutive quarters of growth.
The Raine & Horne Careers Night, aimed at aspiring real estate agents and future office owners/principals, will be held at the Mantra on Murray, 305 Murray Street, Perth.
“Already the May interest rate cut delivered by the Reserve Bank has impacted real estate markets in Perth, with Raine & Horne offices reporting a significant pickup in first home buyer activity,” says Angus Raine, CEO Raine & Horne, who will be delivering the keynote address at the event.
“With the WA real estate market starting to pick up some momentum, now is a great time to be considering a real estate career.”
That said, real estate can be unlike other professions, notes Mr Raine.
“In many ways, a real estate career will involve working around the clock, while long hours and weekend work are the norm, but the rewards usually compensate the sacrifices.”
The Raine and Horne CEO cautions that the very best real estate agents must be prepared to meet high personal and business expectations.
“While listing and selling homes are the primary objectives, there are also minimum new business targets that all sales agents must meet in terms of property listings.
“At Raine and Horne, we provide our agents with the very best training in our management systems and support them throughout their career to be the best they can be.”
Rae O’Neill, Raine & Horne’s Business Support & Development Manager WA, adds, “Working in real estate gives you the ability to build a really strong foundation for a good career.”
“Getting into the profession before the market starts to boom can make all the difference, so that when property values take off, you already have a head start,” says Ms O’Neill.
“Working in real estate also allows you to set your own working hours. Many agents use the time to spend with their family.”
“Raine & Horne is focussed on growth and is seeking professionals who are interested in applying for a career in real estate sales, or are seeking to own a real estate franchise.”
