Build a career in real estate and property development
The property industry is one of the most significant employers—and the largest private sector contributor to gross state product—in Queensland. The industry has a critical role in the current and future shaping of our state economy, built environment, ecological sustainability and community development, including the new and evolving forms of property ownership and management in strata titled environments.
To work in the real estate and property development industry, you'll need great communication and interpersonal skills to successfully collaborate with other professionals in delivering sustainable and liveable environments.
