I was looking to change industries and was wondering what experience you need to be a buyers agent?
if you work for a buyers agency is it a commission only job or are you on a fixed salary ?

In order to become a BA you will need a degree in property economics or a Cert IV in real estate and hold an unrestricted real estate licence.

It would pay to do some research about what is actually involved to be a Buyers Agent, have a talk with some of the NSW members from the REBAA website and get their perspective on the industry.

Good luck. Ask for your registration subjects first so you can work in a local agency on Saturdays.Andrew_AParticipant@andrew_aJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 392ten_burner wrote:Thanks for your help guys Ive started my Cert 4 in Real-estate (property services) online through TAFE NSW a few weeks ago
Curious as to why you want to start as a BA? My suggestion for a motivated younger person would be to consider starting in sales with a good brand name, much clearer path to success this way. There's been some comments about the number of BA's starting in Sydney recently, must be something to do with the stronger market you have there as it's not happening in other places as far as I'm aware.
Good luck with your journey!
