If I was to become an Ausatralian consultant for an overseas company who buys, develops, sells and manages properties; would I need to become a “Buyers Agent” or would I just be a sales consultant as I have been for many Australian building companies?
Also what government department or agency is responsible for the licencing of buyers agents?shaztazMember@shaztazJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 113
Hi L & J,
My guess is that you would be a consultant, however you could clarify things by asking the Real Estate Institute in your State or perhaps the Department of Fair Trading might be able to help.

HI, to offer advice on any financial products you would have to become a financial planner to cover you australia wide. This is then regulated via ASIC and is certified by them.
If you were working specifically in one state only, a real estate licence for that state would be definitely something to do.
realestate.com.au has a “buyers agent” button. Click on that and it has more info as to individual state requirements.
I operate Australia wide and even though I only specialise in property I am still a qualified financial planner.
Hope this helps.
