Di Jones launches 3-year academy to develop its top sales talent
Di Jones will launch a new academy program called Future Superstars Program, an intensive three-year initiative designed to produce top sales agents, as it invests in attracting and developing the sales leaders of tomorrow.
CEO Rob Ward said that one of the network’s key strategies is to nurture and develop new talent within the real estate industry.
“The Future Superstars Program has been created to facilitate the exponential growth of individuals by offering participants training, coaching and mentoring, and a support network to maximise their chance of success,” Mr Ward said.
“There are many agents in the marketplace who aren’t reaching their potential and, as part of our program, we are actively hunting these associates and business development managers in our industry.
“We found that the majority of companies are either a franchise or one-office boutique that often had its director as a selling agent.
Mr Ward said that property management BDMs and sales associates often hit a ceiling when moving into an agent role in these businesses, as they are then competing against their employer.
“I am not an active selling director and will personally mentor the Future Superstars,” Mr Ward said.
“As a result, we have an investment in their future success and offer unparalleled support in helping them become the best in the market.”
After an extensive search and interview process, Joe Sissons and Sam Outch became the first inductees into the program.
“We are incredibly excited to be investing in their future and to be working with them. Joe joins the Di Jones North Shore team and Sam is at Di Jones Northern Suburbs,” Mr Ward said.
“The training for the program runs on strict KPIs that can be hard for most agents to achieve, but the results will be their reward.”
