Opportunities in France
Agent commercial (Local estate agent)
As an Agent Commercial acting on behalf of Sextant Properties, you will be an ambitious and confident self-starter, will be responsible for the growth of the business through expansion of the existing property portfolio and marketing these properties to an international clientele. With the ability to work autonomously, this is essentially a field sales role, with the assured back-up of an experienced bilingual sales support team based out of Head Office.
Essential qualities we are looking for in an agent are stamina, loyalty and adaptability, as well as a genuine interest in property. The ideal candidate will have experience of working within estate agency in France, although we will consider applicants who have experience in real estate from other countries, or simply a strong track record in sales – we are open-minded. Given the success of our website, a good level of IT literacy is essential to the role, although full training will be given.
A basic knowledge of the French language is essential. However, a willingness to learn and develop this skill will be taken as seriously as someone fluent in the language.
Above all, individuals must understand that this is a self-employed role, where you will be establishing and growing your own estate agency business, under the auspices of Sextant Properties. You must be very disciplined, understand the level of commitment that will be required by the way we work, and be prepared to work within the confines of the legislation that governs estate agency in France – we are looking for serious and competent individuals who want to grow a long-term business.
