Top Tips to Nail Your Interview When Applying at a Real Estate Brokerage

Surrounding yourself with successful people is one of the keys to success. Nailing your interview with that real estate brokerage is key! Real estate is a great career path in which many people find enjoyment and success. Whether you are thinking about applying for or are actively seeking a job in real estate, you need to prepare for the interview. Here are a few tips you can follow to make sure that you nail that interview.

Nail Your Interview When Applying at a Real Estate Brokerage: Meet the Qualifications

You need to be qualified. If the position you’re interviewing for is as a real estate salesperson, you need to be licensed in your state. You won’t even be considered a potential candidate if you don’t complete the steps to obtain your license to work as a real estate agent. The basic qualifications to be eligible to become licensed are:

  • Depending on the state, be at least 18 or 19 years old
  • Complete your state’s licensing education requirements
  • Pass the real estate license examination for your state.

Having a license gets you in the door, but you also need to prove that you belong there. Make sure you do your research and practice for your interview before. You should come prepared with specific examples that show you have the skills needed to succeed, as well as the knowledge of real estate. Even if you are new to real estate, you can use your experiences to show that you have the ability to connect with people and think on your feet. This is the time to sell yourself and make yourself the most attractive candidate. Obviously, don’t lie about your skills and experience, but you shouldn’t downplay anything about yourself either.

Research the Brokerage

As soon as your interview is scheduled, you need to get to work. Nothing makes you look less qualified than not knowing anything about the brokerage that you are interviewing with. Although you should already know some of the basics, this is the time to really get into the target market of the brokerage. Look at where they are selling homes and where their agents have been successful. Know the demographics of the areas that they target. If you know who is interviewing you, it would be a good idea to look at their background as well. You may even find a connection that can help you. The more you know going into the interview, the better you will look to the person interviewing you. This is also a good time to be thinking of questions to ask during the interview. Asking relevant questions is a great way to show you are engaged and that this is important to you.

Nail Your Interview When Applying at a Real Estate Brokerage: Your Interview Tool Kit

When you schedule the interview, make sure to ask if there is anything they want you to bring. If there is, make sure you bring it. This is not the time to forget things at home. In addition, even if you submitted a resume online, it is a good idea to bring a few copies with you. The person interviewing you may have a copy, but it can be hard to point things out from your resume if they don’t have one. You should also have a notepad, and two pens, in case one doesn’t work. Before you leave for the interview, write down any questions you want to ask in your notepad. Even if you think you’ll remember them, the likelihood of forgetting them is pretty high once you get into the interview. You can also use your notepad to jot down any reminders of things that you want to make sure you bring up as selling points.

It’s nerve wracking to go into any interview, regardless of the profession. However, by following these tips, you can make sure that you are adequately prepared.
