Your experience counts – for your work as a real estate agent, too

Whether you’re currently a construction engineer, draughtsman, interior designer, project developer, architect, property manager or property valuer – your experience and training gives you important tools for a career as a real estate agent. As a construction engineer, for instance, you will have a knack for assessing a building’s condition. You won’t just be able to plan extensions and conversions professionally – you’ll be able to give customers knowledgeable advice on them, too. As an architect, you can also contribute your expertise as a real estate agent – whether it’s your proven knowledge of materials or your trained eye – and benefit from your broad-based professional knowledge.

The customer is king – and knowing what they want is key

The professional experience you bring from your previous career can help make you a property professional. This means you already have one of the key requirements for starting out as a real estate agent. In the beginning, what you need more than anything is this: passion and dedication. Commitment to providing good service and a strong customer focus are also required. You need empathy and strong social skills to understand customers’ wishes and skilfully lead and manage negotiations.

Your existing network can open new doors

It’s a big plus if you already have sales experience and are used to approaching customers. Networking and active acquisition are some of the main drivers of success in your work as a real estate agent. It’s even better if you can draw on an existing network that can open doors for you. As part of your onboarding/induction process, you will also get the best possible insight into your market sector and expand your existing network with the aim of building a reputation as a skilled Engel & Völkers real estate agent.
