Wondering how to become a real estate agent in Victoria?

5 Steps to Get Started

Victoria is a great place to become a real estate agent. There are many opportunities for success in this industry, and there is a range of platforms and resources available to help people get started.

Step 1: Meet the necessary qualifications

The first step to becoming a real estate agent in Victoria is to meet the required qualifications. In order to work as a real estate agent in Victoria, you must be at least 18 years old and have completed year 12 or equivalent. You will also need to complete your Agents Representative Course. This is a compulsory course that covers topics such as real estate law, property management, and agency operations.

Step 2: Registration with Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV)

You will need to register with the Victorian real estate industry regulator, Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) before officially becoming a real estate agent. Once you have completed your course and are registered with CAV, you will be able to start working as a real estate agent in Victoria.

Step 3: Work Experience

Once you are qualified as a licensed estate agent, it is time to start looking for work experience. Most real estate agents start their careers by working in property management, as assistants, or shadowing experienced real estate agents as licensed estate agent consultants. This is a great way to learn the ropes of the industry and develop your skill set.

Step 4: Find the right fit

Do some research, speak to people within the various roles, and find which suits your personality and attributes best. But don't get too caught up with choosing the right one - you can always switch later on. Real estate is a vast sector comprising dozens of unique roles, from sales to property management to business broking. No matter where your skills lie, real estate has a role to suit.

Step 5: Start working!

Now that you're trained and qualified - the only thing left to do is start working. Look for a reputable real estate agency where you can work as a licensed real estate agent. Working with an established agency will provide you with valuable guidance, training, and exposure to the industry. Believe in yourself and your skills, carry that confidence into your applications and when you get your first opportunity, make the most of it.
