Property professionals work to increase the value of land and property. This can be anything from selling, buying, letting or renting real estate to overseeing the planning and land development of a property.

Due to the unpredictable and challenging nature of the property market it can be an extremely complicated yet rewarding industry to work in. 

Work for those in the property sector is varied but you will likely be communicating with clients either face to face or over the phone on a daily basis and therefore you will need a high level of interpersonal skills. Qualifications are not always necessary as long as you have these qualities.

Property firms don’t usually build or oversee construction of houses but as a property development you may plan a project from start to finish and organise construction with contractors.
