Have you ever wondered what a day in the real estate industry might look like? Have you been pondering a career change and thought that real estate might be what you want to do?

After a long career in medical administration, joining the real estate industry has been a change of pace that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Each day is different, and you can never plan what the day  is going to hold. Are we going to sell 3 properties today? Maybe we will have some new listings come to market! Perhaps a timber pest report comes back with significant findings, and we need to come up with some solutions to get the deal across the line.

Some days you are at your desk for the day, others we might get to spend the day out and about drawing floor plans, seeing new properties, and other odd jobs. We liaise with settlement agents, banks, buyers, sellers, other agents, and so many more wonderful people. Some people are local, some interstate, and the odd ones are even international!

It is incredibly satisfying to assist someone buy or sell their home, usually the biggest investment of their lives! Any way that we can help to make this process easier, we are always looking for ways to help our clients achieve the best outcomes with the least amount of stress and worry.

No matter what the day brings, the best part of working in real estate, and especially at Merrifield, is the bond and friendships formed within the team. It doesn’t matter what department, whether it be commercial, strata, rentals, sales – everyone pitches in and helps out to get things done. The cohesiveness of the team here is amazing, and it makes it a pleasure to come to work each day.

If you have been thinking about a career change, I would not hesitate to recommend looking further into the real estate industry!
