Most states require comprehensive training and stringent accreditation to be able to conduct Auctions. Licensing and accreditation is due to become a national requirement in 2014 and, therefore, provide some consistency across the states. In fact, Queensland have already decided on new legislation that will provide some consistency with the other states, especially NSW.
I believe that Tara Bell’s industry history epitomises the need for proper training and accreditation. Several years ago, at a time that Janelle and I purchase a Real Estate office in Tugun on the Gold Coast and rebranded it under the LJHooker banner, Tara expressed a desire to become involved in the business after being trained and employed in the hospitality industry.
To her absolute credit, Tara undertook to source the best in Real Estate training and very quickly established herself as an accomplished and very competent Business Systems Operator within the LJHooker system.
