Is Real Estate for me?

Real estate professionals need a special set of skills and attributes. You’ll need to be:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • A ‘fit and proper person’ (this means having no criminal convictions). The REA carries out a police check for all licence applications
  • Well-presented and professional
  • Happy with working long and irregular hours, such as on weekends and in the evening
  • A great networker with strong relationship-building skills
  • Driven and self-motivated (especially for sales roles, which are commission-based)
  • Able to understand financial concepts, market trends, and legislation.
New to the industry?

For those with no prior experience working in real estate, becoming a salesperson is the best way to get your foot in the door. Once you find a real estate agency that will host you as a learner, you can enrol in the New Zealand Certificate in Real Estate (Salesperson) (Level 4) programme.

After you complete all of the requirements of the programme, including assessments and a face-to-face interview, you will need to apply for a Salesperson’s licence from the Real Estate Authority (REA). This licence allows you to legally work as a real estate salesperson and sell property within New Zealand.

Please note that you can only apply for the licence after you’ve been awarded the qualification. The licence application is a separate process that is independently managed by REA and can take approximately a month. The sooner you complete the programme and receive your certificate, the sooner you can apply for your licence and start selling property.
