    Hi all,

    I am doin part time agent.

    But had been stopping for quite sometime.

    Better think twice before you commit. I actually tot if it goes well and wanted to quit my job too. Maybe I join at the wrong timing.

    Bring few clients to view so many houses but no deal close. So give up.

    Hi all,

    I just started working part time as property agent recently & plan to go into full time early next yr.

    Frankly speaking, if u all plan to do part time... pls be prepare as u'll require alot of hardwork, determination as well as good time-management especially for mothers like us as we hv a full time job & also got to take care of our kids at the same time. I must say it is not as easy as many thinks. But... I think everyone can success if u hv the determination & put in effort. Most importantly I think u must hv a good mentor to guide u along if u r totally new to this.

    Those who r interested to know more, u can pm me if u want. Although I'm still new, I'm willing to share my experience with u all as I find this job rather interesting. :)

    Cheers:)

    Agreed Irene about have a good mentor. Some just want to recruit then leave u to swim on ur own.

    Being a property agent u hv flexi time but actually u will have less time for your family. As most veiwing are done in the evening or on wkend.

    hi all,

    Yeah it's totally right, being an property agent is not as easy. Need a lot of hardwork, time, effort and of cos "luck" too!

    I was a sahm for 5 yrs and started out my property life last Jul and it has been a yr plus and till now I'm enjoying to my fullest. I always feel that one must love something before you can do well.

    If interested, can PM me and I can share more with u.

    Hi all,

    Being a property agent is nt easy. Esp when you want to get commision or exclusive.

    There are differnt agencies in Sin and each of them hv their unique / strong selling pt.

    For eg.

    DTZ: landed property
    ERA, HSR, OT, Dennis Wee: HDB
    HUTTONS: Developer projects

    New up comming agency: Credo, there are more, but I cant remember nw

    Try this link, there is a forum there.

    Well me I had the good fortune of using Property Agent In Singapore to search for an investment property in early 2010. I found the agent to be extremely well connected and knowledgeable of all activity in the local market.

    I'm a mother of two gals and a full time property agent with Dennis Wee Group.

    Really enjoy my work and my relationships with my clients. Also loved the flexibility in this job since my gals are still small.

    Those who are interested to join property industry can pm me. I can share with you the pros and cons in this industry. [​IMG]

    Hi

    Thinking of joining this industry part time to gain more exposure to real estate. But not sure whether i'm suitable or not cos I'm more introvert than extrovert. Does that matters?

    sun villa rentals in Gran Canaria are an excellent choice for a late season getaway as the climate makes this island an ideal all year round vacation destination. If you are fed up with the weather back home and long for a seaside holiday why not book winter getaway vacation rentals on Gran Canaria.

    Hi,

    Not sure if this thread still active??

    I m thinking to become a property agent. Should I go ahead with the RES course then only choose the agency to join or vice versa? After passing the RES exam, can I straight away apply for CEA or must I join an agency first?

    Appreciate if any of you can advice me on that. Thanks!

    Hi is the thread still active? I am currently not working and is interested to be a part time property agent, any one has good advise to share?

    newme,
    you can pass yr course first then join an agency, they will do the admin for you. Or you can do what i did and join an agency first and sign up for their package which includes the course ( i kiasu, felt better attending classes b4 taking exams!)

    i advise you to shortlist a few agencies and speak to them first, see which you are comfy with. the team and the team manager is more impt than the name of the agency!

    beejoo,
    if u r not working, why do u want to do pty PT and not FT? its very hard to do well part-time as you have limited hours which will affect yr commitment to yr client or project. perhaps what u mean is freelance i.e. work when you have an assignment on-hand?

    that is what i've been doing for the past 4 years to juggle motherhood and take care of my 2 young babies, and it has worked well for me. there will be periods when you are very busy be it selling, buying or renting, or worse doing showflat duty (which i have since sworn off cos it really burns all yr precious weekend family time!) but there will also be lull periods so its all about balance!;)
