Today, Year 11 Work Studies were treated to a question and answer session with Nathan Thomas from Soul Property Real Estate. It was a great insight into the real estate industry for the students.

Nathan, who had to teleconference due to Covid-19 restrictions, spoke about his career path, the state of real estate both locally and nationally and the opportunities available to students who want to work in real estate.

Real estate has had a particularly good run in Australia this past year. As Nathan declares, “Growth in real estate has been strongest we’ve ever experienced in the past 12 months. We’ve never seen anything like it. It’s gone from doom and gloom to boom.”

As you can imagine, this has created a demand for staff. From agents to property managers, receptionists to marketers, real estate has a range of jobs for a variety of skillsets and personality types.

It was Nathan’s advice on picking a career path that you love, however, that made the most impact on the students. “You’ve got to do something you enjoy,” explains Nathan, “You’ll never excel if you’re just working for the sake of working.”
