With the demand for property continually increasing in the UK, the need for good property sales professionals has increased along with it. Property sales isn’t just flats and houses. You could be managing the sales and lettings of properties of all shapes and sizes including noted commercial spaces.
A day in the life of a property sales professional could be liaising with vendors, generating and attending viewings, sourcing market appraisals, managing the office diary, providing clients with feedback and negotiating on behalf of your clients. You will have the opportunity to speak to clients and meet with them very early on in your career and expand your professional network through referrals and recommendations based on your excellent performance.
Why do property firms want graduates? Many firms that run property sales graduate schemes are looking for graduates for a number of reasons: they want to harness the skills that you have developed during your degree that make you a confident and articulate professional. Degrees with a business or real estate focus may be preferred but generally they are just looking for bright, driven and interpersonally strong graduates with a genuine interest in the property market.
