Welcome to the Peard Career Centre (PCC) – home to an 5 week program designed to give new to the industry Sales Associates the best chance of becoming successful through intensive training, work experience and unmatched support. PCC has been in full operation since March 2014 and with the early success our graduates have experienced, it’s clear that extra training and mentoring makes a huge difference.
PCC is headed by Training Manager, Sylvia Stephens, who has extensive sales management and training experience and has successfully sold real estate for the past 20 years, receiving numerous awards.
To enrol in PCC, the New Sales Associate must have completed their sales registration through an external company (such as REIWA, West Coast Property Training or TAFE) so that they are registered through the Department of Commerce. They will then be employed and assigned to a Peard Real Estate office and will complete the PCC program.
The program maximises everything taught in the registration course, instilling the ‘Peard Real Estate Way’ of operating with a strong emphasis on the importance on prospecting for new business, finding and developing leads, investing in networking and the importance of self-promotion and marketing. Sylvia focuses on building confidence in the New Sales Associates and training not only on the concept of Real Estate but the how to sustain success. She provides strategies to win new business and motivational ideas to keep everyone positive and focused on building a successful career. The fact that Sylvia has achieved her own goals that she has set during her own career as a Sales Associate makes her committed to sharing these experiences with the new generation of Peard Sales Associates.
There is a maximum of ten students at any one time, so each student is guaranteed to receive one-on-one support. Alongside their time at PCC with Sylvia, the new Sales Associates will also spend time with their office Licensee and Experienced Sales Associates, attending appraisals and home opens with them.
To graduate from PCC, the New Sales Associates must leave with 1 listing.
