We’ve all heard about the glass ceiling; have you heard about the mirrored ceiling? You know, you look up and all you can see is what you are doing now, more and more of the same, no way to move forward; same problems, same solutions and worst of all same outcomes.

Where is the challenge, reward and recognition in that? While it is impressive to forge a presence in sales within a specialised area of industry or services ultimately you are only important to a very small number of people in that sector. All those jobs need to be done and all of those products and services need to be sold; absolutely good work, but there are definite limits to growth. If you are reading this, then you are already at that limit.

Now is the time to jump on to a different ladder and climb around that mirrored ceiling and go above it in an industry with no financial limits. An industry where, when you put in the time to evolve your selling skills, there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Consider a professional career in real estate. Forget the amateur players and join an established but modern, sound but innovative real estate business – it is really possible to have it all.

SO WHAT ARE WE OFFERING TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS?

There are two key variables for the successful sale of property: the competence of the agent and the effectiveness of our marketing. Here at First National Pope Nitschke, we are focused on ensuring every consultant reaches their fullest potential by offering you start-up and ongoing training and extensive marketing support backed by the strength of three established sales teams and a national identity.

Our business – three teams strong

Three sales team, two residential and one commercial over two offices in Mt Barker and Strathalbyn. Headed by partners Darren Pope and David Nitschke with personal sales histories in Real estate stretching back to the 1980’s. This role is based at our Mt Barker office reporting to David Nitschke.

We are proud members of the First National network. We have access to all the benefits of a national network without being encumbered with massive franchise fees because we are a cooperative. This means every dollar in fees paid to the network is returned in a dollar of value to our business creating value for marketing, technology, systems and processes to support your selling success.

With the significant market reach of two strategically located offices, we are a business group serving the Adelaide Hills, Australia’s fastest growing regional area. Unlike franchise offices, we are not encumbered by working in tiny restrictive selling territories and this is reflected by the range of suburbs we can sell in. In other words, your selling territory is less restrictive so your opportunities are greater.

It could be you – Our selection process

We plan for success, not failure, which is why we only start people whom we believe have the inbuilt qualities of an effective sales person specifically for the real estate industry.  The importance of our sales requires extensive and finely tuned sales skills quite different to other sales jobs. The first part of this process is the careful selection of staff to join our team using a sales specific selection system called Sales Inventory Profile (SIP) which identifies if you have the inherent ability to sell, even if you have no prior sales experience.

We won’t let you give up your current role just to ‘have a go’. If we offer you a role it will be because we can see you have the right ingredients needed to list and sell real estate and you can confident plan a professional career with us.

When you join us we commit our resources and a clear process from day one to your learning, to ensure your first year is profitable and from there on, stellar! Our approach is to step training into stages so you learn and then implement the stages of selling one at a time.

David will ensure you see how these skills and tools are implemented in practical ways and allow you time to develop your own wording to suit your style without losing sales while you are learning the real estate business.

David will guide you in a systematic way through all parts of the business, residential listing and selling process at a speed that suits your current experience and learning style. To further broaden your experience David will partner you at different times with our top agent to give you a wider range of styles to emulate allowing you to perfect your own.
