Getting Started in Real Estate
A career in real estate is hard work and requires effort but is very rewarding, both personally and financially.
To be eligible to sell real estate in New Zealand, you first need to complete your qualifications and licensing requirements. We recommend studying through The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand. The course can be taken via correspondence or contact class throughout the year.
Applying for your Real Estate Salespersons Certificate
Once you have successfully completed your salespersons course and passed the course requirements, you need to apply to the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand to be legally licensed to sell real estate as a salesperson. This application is made by Holmwood Real Estate on your behalf, once you have been offered a place within our sales team.
If you have already completed your salespersons course please contact us to discuss any upcoming sales consultant opportunities.
All new consultants start their career by attending the Harcourts Academy, located at the South Island regional office in Christchurch. The Academy is the only Real Estate training facility in Australasia to offer a structured course path and tailored system of learning for ongoing professional development. The initial new consultant course provides a valuable foundation for your success in real estate, and the course offers an 'on the job learning' option to achieve your advanced real estate qualifications.
The Harcourts Academy is offered at set dates throughout the year - contact us to find out when the next course starts.
