O-YES Properties: Academy success 3 years running

Established in 2017, the O-YES Properties Academy set their main objective as making a difference to aspiring South Africans by means of a free 12-week training course and guaranteed employment for successful academy graduates. 

The future-focused business, built on 19 years of property experience, is proud to host a thorough course that serves to benefit both the participant as well as our clients, by giving them well trained property professionals to assist them through the process of buying or selling their home.

Based on the knowledge that most real estate beginners historically start out by being given a desk, a phone and are told to "get on with it" without receiving the necessary training, the course seemed the perfect answer so says Sandton sales manager David Williams;

“It’s all about bringing new people into the industry. The mostly virtual, strongly interactive on-line course spans an intense three-week period whereby several of our experts cover wide ranging topics covering all aspects of real estate, inclusive of property background; sectional title; freehold; commercial; sales and rentals. We also cover geographical farming (the finding and listing of properties); the marketing sphere and complexities thereof; how to finance a purchase; the EAAB code of conduct; business set up and time management. This is then followed by 3 months of on the job training and mentoring, twice a week on-line training sessions plus ongoing monitoring and assessment throughout. The 12-week program covers all of the successful techniques within the on-line training platform that we use, to kick-start a successful career in real estate.”

External training is additionally provided and covers wider-ranging training topics, including the all-important EAAB Intern Log-Book process. Monthly "check-in" project training gauges the intern's progress as to when their Log-Book will be completed and when they can start the next phase of their real estate development.

Mr Williams concludes that during the course the students are encouraged to mingle with and meet as many of the O-YES senior agents as possible in order to understand and live in the complex world of real estate; “Many of the graduates have gone on to make a successful career out of real estate and their annual commission often exceeds that of much more experienced agents within their first few years of real estate.”
