With more than 100 years of rich history and real estate experience across Sydney’s stunning Northern Beaches, Upstate has always placed huge importance on providing our phenomenal team with regular updates across all the latest trends and technologies that impact our industry.

Of course, this is all part of the unique Upstate approach – which, when combined with our wealth of market knowledge and digital-first philosophy, truly sets us apart from the rest of the competition.

We also work tirelessly to provide our staff with the support they need to succeed in their careers with Upstate, such as offering the services of an in-house digital marketing team and organising regular opportunities to grow and develop as an agent.

This brings us to our next point…

Training and development opportunities at Upstate

As part of our commitment to helping our team grow, we provide several training and coaching sessions each month and at different times all throughout the year.

These training opportunities include:

    • Sales techniques
    • Goal setting
    • Mindset
    • App and technology speak
    • EQ techniques to better connect with customers
    • Personal Growth
    • Confidence
  • Group and one-on-one sessions three times a month with Kylie Walsh to help cultivate a high-performance approach to the work that we do. Kylie focuses on:
    • Personal Presentation
    • Effective Communication Techniques
    • Appraisal Process
    • Listing Presentation
    • Managing Campaigns
    • Product Knowledge
    • Agent Profile and Marketing
    • Resilience
    • Reading Contracts and Strata Reports
    • CRM and Prospecting
    • Time Management and Goals
  • Our Annual Level Up Sales Conference – guest speakers for 2023 included two highly-regarded experts from the Real Estate industry, Angus Moore (REA Economist) and Kon Stathopoulos (Principle at McGrath). We also heard once again from Kylie Walsh and covered resetting our mindsets with Chelsea Pottenger.
  • The Upstate Property Management Conference – our most recent PM Conference took place at Macquarie Bank, where we heard from several speakers before staying overnight at Crown Barangaroo. This allowed us to provide our team with an experience of luxury and quality customer service that helped them to better understand how to deliver great service to our clients.

No one offers the calibre of real estate training and development we do. As you can see, we maintain a heavy focus on our real estate agents and continue to look for new ways to help our team become even better at what they do.

“Upstate offer best in sector training and coaching for their people investing heavily in developing talent and performance and ensuring their people have the very best of tools and resources to find themselves in a better place”. Kylie Walsh (Coach)
