Administration Career Information
There are several administration-based career paths in real estate, including:
Receptionist. Often known as the “Director of first impressions”, receptionists need to be expert jugglers. You’ll be answering the phones as you talk to people who have just walked in off the street wanting to inspect homes, you’ll be the first point of call for someone who has a problem, you’ll be following up solicitors for documentation, talking to suppliers about orders as well as handling all the front office duties like mail, filing and booking/maintaining meeting room/s. It’s a role that requires a “can do” attitude, warm personality and first class customer service.
Sales Support. You’ll be liaising with vendors (the people who are selling their properties) and buyers, ensuring that all the relevant paper work is done for every property, checking files are completed, as well as being the right hand for one or many very busy, very demanding sales people. This role requires strong organisation and time management, attention to detail and excellent people skills.
Accounting. The role of a bookkeeper or accountant in real estate is the same as it is in any industry. There are accounts and salaries to be processed and paid, records to be kept and there are financial returns to be prepared. And then there’s trust accounting… Real estate agencies receive large amounts of money as bonds, deposits etc and this money must be meticulously handled. This is a role that requires a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
Marketing. No one is going to buy a property that they don’t know is for sale. That’s where marketing comes in. It can involve preparing window posters, boards, creating advertisements for local papers and property magazines, organising photography, placing the property details on the internet, organising letterbox drops, writing editorials. It’s a role that requires creativity and organisation.
