Why Become an Estate Agent?


Run Your Own Business

Real estate agents are able to run their own business within the structure and security of an established company. Reputable real estate agencies provide the necessary staff support, systems and procedures that are crucial to establishing and growing an independent business. This enables agents to focus and actively work towards reaching their sales targets.

Flexible Hours in the Field

Estate agents spend the majority of their time in the field, actively sourcing stock and directly liaising with landlords, tenants, owners and buyers. Although the hours are more flexible, it is a time- and energy-intensive profession that calls for a high degree of discipline and drive in order to establish a prosperous business in a highly-competitive and dynamic industry. The business requires agents to work outside of the normal 9-to-5 work hours to accommodate working clients.

Organised individuals who practice efficient time management and effective organisational skills thrive as estate agents.

Dynamic People-Oriented Business

Top performing estate agents recognise the importance of a good client-agent relationship, regardless of who the client happens to be (tenant/landlord, buyer/seller). A commitment to client service guarantees return business and referrals. Successful real estate professionals are energetic, assertive, reliable and trustworthy, possessing excellent interpersonal, communication and negotiating skills. A passion for people is an absolute necessity in this business!

Earning Incentives & Attractive Commission Structure

The real estate business is performance-based, which places a large part of an B squarely on their own shoulders. As an independent contractor, earning is directly proportional to how successful an agent is in letting/selling their properties timeously. Hard-working, sales-driven individuals committed to their clients are quick to stand out!

Fortunately, the South African property market and real estate investment as a whole have proved resilient, and largely unshakeable, despite political unrest and economic uncertainty, both locally and globally over the past few years. Although the market does have a significant effect on buying/selling/renting demand and supply, people will always need somewhere to live.


There is considerable earning potential in the real estate market, provided the agent has the support and structure of a reputable estate agency and comprehensive in-house and field training that equips them to take their business to the next level!
