What qualifications do you need to become a salesperson?

Before you apply for a real estate licence from the Real Estate Authority (REA), you will need a National Certificate in the particular role you are seeking:
  • Salesperson — National Certificate in Real Estate Level 4.
  • Branch Manager — National Certificate in Real Estate Level 5 (version 3 or later).

There are a number of educational organisations that offer real estate qualifications like Skills, Open Polytechnic, TAFE, or Unitec. Combining certificate fees and the cost of acquiring a licence under the REA, expect the process to cost between $2,000 - $2,500. Note, if you already have a recognised property degree and want to apply for a real estate licence, you will need to complete an assessment.
