Training institution

Kalesi Mele
Saturday, August 12, 2017

PLANS are afoot to create an institution dedicated to training new real estate agents on the rudiments of the business.

Fiji Real Estate Agents Association president Vyas Sharma said there were no formal processes in place on becoming licensed agents in Fiji.

"Basically anyone who has completed high school can become an agent," he said.

"There is no direct institution dedicated to teaching those who wish to know the basics of the business."

He said the creation of the association — and a new code of ethics — would allow new agents to work both within the law and be guided by the code.

"We are currently liaising with our counterparts in both Australia and New Zealand on how to make this possible. This will be a first for Fiji and we feel it is really important that this gets done.

"We believe that if our agents are trained and have adequate information on how the business works, working within the law and abiding by the ethics will become very easy."
