There are some basic skills that will be useful for you
in becoming a letting agent, which are:
Communication skills - If you can communicate
well with people you’ll reap the rewards as a letting
agent. A friendly, personable agent is one with a good
reputation, who people will recommend. This applies to
face-to-face contact, telephone and written communication.
Leadership skills - If you are a born
leader and know how to motivate people this is the career
for you. Being a letting agent involves keeping everyone
happy, from the landlord to the tenant to suppliers. And
once your business expands and you need to take on your
own employees you’ll be using your leadership skills
again, by motivating your team of staff.
If you’re now thinking, "I’m not sure I’ve
got all those skills. Is this the right course for me?"
Don’t worry! We’re here to help. Not everyone

any areas you may feel you need some guidance on.
