The great Aus­tralian dream is to own a home and prop­erty pro­fes­sion­als play a role in mak­ing that hap­pen. The largest oc­cu­pa­tion within the real es­tate sec­tor is that of sales agents.

Their du­ties in­clude ap­prais­ing prop­er­ties, ob­tain­ing list­ings of prop­er­ties for sale, mar­ket­ing the prop­erty, seek­ing out and in­tro­duc­ing buy­ers, of­fer­ing ad­vice on mar­ket con­di­tions, over­see­ing in­spec­tions, ne­go­ti­at­ing the sale and li­ais­ing with le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

About 7800 ex­tra sales agents are fore­cast to be needed across Aus­tralia in the five years to May, 2022.

Another large oc­cu­pa­tion is that of prop­erty man­agers, who lease and man­age prop­erty on be­half of prop­erty own­ers. They typ­i­cally se­lect ten­ants, col­lect rent, ar­range re­pairs, mar­ket prop­er­ties, ne­go­ti­ate leases and rent re­views, ad­vise on rental mar­kets and rep­re­sent prop­erty own­ers at tri­bunal hear­ings. Other work­ers in the real es­tate in­dus­try in­clude auc­tion­eers, body cor­po­rate man­agers, buyer’s agents, val­uers and ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port staff.
