Sample Real Estate Agent Resume
THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN WRITING THIS TYPE OF RESUME
The real estate sales resume must be as competitive as the real estate marketplace itself. The resume is the agent’s best chance to distinguish themselves from a set of similarly qualified applicants through demonstrating their value. Whereas all the traditional resume rules apply (highlight relevant work experience, highlight academic successes, etc), the real manner in which a potential realtor can distinguish themselves is through mastery or competency with a number of cutting-edge real estate business tools.
These tools, ranging from things as mundane as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, to real estate specific items like Win2Data, CoStar, Yardi, Argus, eGrabber, ListGrabber, and Lexis Nexis, truly stand out to employers.
Often, the mere mention of familiarity with some of these tools and the business advantages they offer will be more than enough to make a candidate stand out as a valuable asset to potential employers!
