From January 2013 all intern estate agents had to complete a mandatory one-year internship programme on entering the real estate profession. The programme is designed to ensure that intern estate agents get meaningful, practical experience combined with their theoretical estate agency studies during the first 12 months of their internship period.
The idea is that a new agent must be provided with a structured learning environment so he or she can get the necessary experience to confidently perform the functions of a professional estate agent. It’s a wonderful and necessary idea but, to be frank, quite difficult to implement if you’re the principal of the agency or manager of the intern estate agent. It takes a tremendous investment of your time and effort to take even one intern agent through this programme.
The Estate Agency Affairs Board also requires intern estate agents and their principals to complete a logbook and workplace portfolio of evidence. Our experience is that intern estate agents and principals struggle to diligently keep this logbook updated – even with the best of intentions.
To make this process easier and manageable for intern estate agents and principals, Deon Terblanche teamed up with Yolande Botha of Realysis Academy.
Over the course of 11 in-depth, online lessons, Yolande and Deon will take you through everything you need to know to compile a logbook, as required by the EAAB. Yolande is a qualified assessor and real estate trainer. She specialises in logbook and portfolio of evidence facilitation for intern estate agents (and, of course, their busy principals).
Every lesson will be online and live so you can get access to this training whether you are in Sandton or Sannieshof. Each lesson will consist of a live training session where you will be able to ask questions, get advice and interact with other students. All supporting material will be delivered online as well so you’ll never have to worry about losing any important training material.
In session 1, you will get an in-depth overview of the logbook process, how to do required projects, how to complete the logbook after each session and more.
