The role of a Sales Associate is the perfect entry point into a Real Estate sales career. As a Sales Associate at LJ Hooker Gungahlin, you will support a team of well-established Agents in a range of marketing and sales activities - and in turn, learn 'the ropes'.

The job


Real Estate Sales is not easy. It takes grit and determination. It needs patience and persistence. It needs creative thinking and commitment to a process. You'll be a 'Sales Creator'. This means you'll need to commit to 6 long days a week, for at least 3 years before you're fully-fledged. (Think of it as an Apprenticeship) And another 3 before you can think about buying that supercar! Saturdays are a must and odd hours are part of the game...


For the right person though, Real Estate sales is one of the most lucrative professions to be in, affording a lifestyle and choices that are unparalleled.


LJ Hooker Gungahlin is a very busy place to be. In most cases you'll do most of your learning on the job. You'll need to be good at observing Troy in action, a quick learner and courageous enough to ask questions.


Is a Real Estate sales career for you? Well, if people describe you as:

  • Professional and well-spoken;
  • Good with numbers;
  • A confident learner;
  • Good at juggling multiple priorities at the same time;
  • An 'Energizer Bunny' (It's long hours, 6-days a week);
  • Self-confident but not overbearing;
  • Someone who enjoys meeting with lots and lots of new people;
  • A creative thinker;
  • Comfortable in taking charge of situations when needed;
  • Good under pressure;
  • Resilient;
  • Pro-active and keen to take the initiative; and
  • Good at reading both people - and the facts...

...we encourage you to apply. Because that's how the best in Real Estate are hard-wired too.


Your working background is of less importance to us than your 'character'. People have come into Real Estate from all sorts of experience, ranging from electricians to psychologists. What will stand you out from the crowd will be:

  • Having a history of BIG achievements (personal or work)
  • A history of self-discipline (Tri-athlete? Black belt martial artist? Honours degree?)
  • Courage to stand your ground
  • Huge work ethic

Note: Real Estate is a tough gig and not suited to just anyone. Our role at Greenfield Recruitment is to help both our clients (Real Estate Agents and Principals) and YOU to know with absolute certainty whether you're a good fit and have genuinely strong prospects of a stellar career in the industry. This is your invitation to begin the journey of discovery.
