Property Managers oversee the daily business operations of dwellings and commercial entities, including advertising, collecting rent, screening tenants, and organising maintenance and repairs.

Property Managers often manage more than one property at a time, so it’s important that they are organised, are excellent communicators and possess strong problem-solving skills.

How to become a Property Manager


SEEK Learning
To work as a Property Manager in Australia, formal qualifications are recommended. A Vocational Educational and Training (VET) course can provide a solid foundation in real estate and will teach you key skills in property administration and marketing. Qualification requirements may vary between states and territories.

  1. Complete a relevant VET course, such as a Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (CPP41419).
  2. While not essential, you could also consider completing a relevant bachelor degree, such as a Bachelor of Property and Real Estate. A bachelor degree can provide a broader range of career opportunities. This usually takes three years of full-time study.
