The fellow employees are very friendly. The work pace is steady and productive. The hours may be long, but the friendly collegues make it enjoyable. The management is fair.

Love that you can earn as much as you sell, but I prefer to have a basic salary, it's more secure. The more work you put in the more you get out. You will have to work hard to keep on making money.

I enjoyed working for Rawson Properties, it gave me the opportunity to express my love for photography and creativity by taking images to be used on their website to be listed for the public ti see.

The environment was very good and the people made you feel like you were apart of a small family.


The only hard thing about my job was when i was required to work as it may have clashed with my after schooling activities, but besides that the individual I worked for was quite understanding.
Pros
Flexible Working Hours
Cons
Not a constant pay

You work on your own.Guidance and training comes at a cost.You have to pay for it along with other marketing products.

There are no benefits and commision is done on transfer of the property which can take between 3 months and a couple of years.


You meet a lot of people , but the relationship is very business like and you learn a lot about property and building structures.
Pros
you are independant
Cons
long periods with no salary

On a daily basis I am finding commercial, industrial and retail property stock and linking new and existing clientele is what I do. There is a constant connecting and marketing of these properties to investors and end users.

I really enjoyed working for Rawson Properties, I learnt alot and got to meet so many different kinds of people.
The only reason for me leaving was due to being on a commission based salary and only paid out when a sale was made and that could take months.
Pros
extra courses available to employees
Cons
long hours and people contacting you in your private time

I used to get into work, and get the keys ready, for arrival on the apartment being occupied on that day. Check emails for and requires or possible bookings. Sending emails, quotes on units per night, cleaning services, and any extras the client might want. Filing of new bookings and checking future booking for arrivals and departures. Making sure customers are all happy.
That would take me to about lunch, after lunch I did write up for the estate agents for the properties the are listing

I learnt a lot about the estate agency and how they operate.

The management was professional, yet playful with all the staff, they were very impressed with my professionalism.

The hardest part of the job was me having to learn how everything operates in one day. Every day I enjoyed the job. Cause I strive to be the best I can be.
Pros
Friendly, happy, fun work environment.
Cons
Non

Real Estate jobs require a self starter. Person with a vehicle and plenty of time. Basically the job required me to work very hard with little to no resources at all. Working for commission is not for me.
Pros
Road shows
Cons
Commission Based job

I managed the whole front desk.
From answering to transferring calls, greeting clients, editing photographs, capturing info from sites and resources.

Cold calling. Preparing home valuations. Assist with property viewings.

General admin.

Managing the financial side of things was my weakness. Completely overwhelmed and discouraged me.
Pros
very interesting industry
Cons
workload just tooooo much
