Your career in real estate

If you enjoy working on the go, having flexibility and dealing with clients, then a career in real estate may be for you.

Here are a few of the questions we’re often asked about the industry.


What is a sales partner?

At Rawson, we don’t refer to ourselves as estate agents. Instead, we call ourselves sales partners because we partner with franchises and work with our clients to sell their properties

What qualifications does a sales partner need?

Current legislation requires that all intern estate agents obtain the Further Education and Training Certificate (NQF 4, SAQA ID 59097), before they can write the Estate Agency Affairs Board’s Professional Designation Examination (PDE 4). The PDE4 must be written within two years of receiving the Further Education and Training Certificate. At Rawson, we’ve put some outstanding systems in place to support our interns as they work towards becoming full status estate agents.

Is it true that sales partners must be able to support themselves for three to six months when starting out?

Yes, it is true. Given that it takes approximately three months for the transfer of a property to be registered in the Deeds Office and for the funds to be made available, commission is usually only paid about three months after the sale is made. And because it takes time to gain experience, become acquainted with your neighbourhood, and establish relationships with potential buyers and sellers, it may take some time to close your first sale.

What do you need to succeed in the property industry?

Focus and dedication are key to your success as a sales partner. You also need to be available when your clients are available – this is often after hours – and must be willing to work on weekends, Sundays in particular, when most viewings and show houses take place.

Do I need previous work experience?

Not necessarily. While we’re always on the lookout for experienced real estate professionals, we’re also passionate about attracting new talent to our ever-growing company. We’ll help you acquire the qualifications and skills you need to become a successful real estate professional through The Rawson Training Academy.

Are you recruiting at the moment?

As a company on the move, we’re always looking for top talent. And with an ever-expanding national footprint, it’s likely there will be regular career opportunities in your location of choice.

What do you look for in an applicant?

As an ambitious company with ambitious goals, we like to partner with people who share the same drive and determination. And while you don’t need to be an extrovert to be a successful sales partner, we place a high value on good listeners who take life in their stride and display confidence and professionalism.
