We live in a world where everyone seems to want things faster and cheaper than ever before- including training. However the best training decisions should be based on quality and outcome.

REINSW prides itself on providing the best training to the industry and setting the standard for real estate education in New South Wales. Our aim is to help agents move ahead in their careers through learning and by preparing them for what lies ahead.

Real estate legislation is constantly changing and growing increasingly complex, which is why it’s more important than ever before to acquire the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge to help progress your career. REINSW provides training designed with our learners in mind. Here’s what some of our recent students had to say.

The best reputation

Amanda Balding recently applied for her Real Estate Licence. Finishing her Certificate of Registration course in January 2017, she quickly went on to complete the Buyers’ Agent course a few months later. And then in October, she received her Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate).

Before making the move to real estate, Amanda was a professional triathlete. Since May 2017, she’s been working as a Sales Agent at Goodyer Real Estate in Sydney.“Once I decided I wanted to get my Real Estate Licence, I looked at the different learning options available and the feedback I received from people working in the industry was that REINSW had the best reputation,” Amanda explained.

“I thought the level of training and support at REINSW was fantastic. I’m a very literal and visual person and found the training style worked well for me and made things easy to learn.”

Amanda said the assessors were a massive support. “They were always available to help out if I had any questions.

“There are other educational organisations where you can do the necessary training cheaper and quicker, but you can’t put a price on quality. I know of someone else who did their training elsewhere and their knowledge about the law is not as good.

“I’ve helped to identify numerous legal mistakes at work already because the REINSW training I received was so thorough and relevant.”

 

Experience and knowledge

Grace Lancken studied the Certificate of Registration Course at REINSW at the end of 2016, before going on to complete the Certificate IV qualification to obtain her Real Estate Licence.
She previously worked in sales and marketing in the hospitality and tourism industry. However, after selling her property in Sydney and moving to Port Stephens to build a new home, she decided to follow in her father and sister’s footsteps and pursue her passion for real estate.

“I decided to train with the REINSW because it’s highly regarded. I particularly enjoyed the courses because the trainers were clearly all very experienced,” Grace said. 

“I feel confident that the courses have prepared me for my real estate career because there was a great emphasis on the importance of good business practice, attention to detail, and the importance of good communication.

“I’ve been able to retain what I learnt, because of the trainers’ teaching methods and practical examples. I can’t thank them enough.”
