About the Opportunity:
As a Leasing Agent/ Residential Property Manager, this role is the perfect opportunity to further your career in residential real estate and develop your skills and experience. Your key responsibilities will include lease negotiations and renewals, inspections, maintenance, rent management, conducting open for inspections and leasing of residential property. Together with your own small portfolio of properties, you’ll be primarily responsible for managing the evolving list of residential properties currently available for lease, responding to all incoming prospective tenant enquiries in a timely manner, organising property marketing and facilitating the leasing process from start to finish. You’ll also liaise with the other members of your team, providing administration support as required. While this is a full time position (Monday – Friday), you’ll also work varying times each Saturday in order to conduct the open for inspections required, and sometimes also the odd evening during the week. You’ll then be able to take this time off during the week in lieu. How much (if any) after hours or Saturday work required each week will all depend on how many properties are vacant and for lease across the overall residential portfolio of Gartland at any one time. In working with the Gartland Property Management team to deliver efficient outcomes, you’ll join a successful brand known for outstanding results and therefore must share Gartland’s commitment to providing clients with an exceptionally high level of customer service. You’ll manage relationships with owners, tenants and potential tenants, work in a fast-paced environment and negotiate rents and tenancy terms. You’ll need to accurately process applications including conveying application details and terms to clients and be able to conduct entry and exit reports when needed. Gartland’s leasing agents form an integral part of their existing teams which include sales, leasing and property management.
A reliable, focused and committed individual, you have an Agents Representative Certificate. Adaptable, switched on and energetic, you’re a team player, and able to accept instructions easily and readily. With exceptional relationship building skills, you’ll also have strong time and organisation management with a high attention to detail. You may have existing real estate experience and are looking to make a change, or you may hail from another industry and are hungry for a new challenge. Immaculately presented, with strong an ability to thrive in a fast paced, continually evolving environment, you’ll be dealing with a wide variety of people on a daily basis, and as such you’ll have excellent written and verbal communication skills. You’ll also have a genuine desire to succeed in the real estate industry, be organised, thorough, highly motivated and have a professional manner. Knowledge on current residential market trends would be advantageous.
About the Perks:
Cultivating the best of the best in its people and practices, Gartland fosters a positive and energising workplace culture which values reward and recognition, innovation and promotes personal development. From workplace wellbeing programs, to role flexibility and ongoing career development, Gartland also actively encourages giving back by engaging a wide range of local community groups and charity organisations. You’ll also work in an amazing office location with a recently revamped and sleek contemporary office outfit.
