When it comes to real estate, do you know your stuff? Then capitalise on your experience – as a construction engineer, draughtsman, interior designer, project developer, architect, property manager or property valuer – and launch your career as a real estate agent at Engel & Völkers.
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 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.
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.
