Being at the cornerstone of the global economy as one of the biggest asset class makes real estate special and pivotal in everybody’s lives. Real estate provides jobs, promotes health and well-being, stimulates investments and so on. The importance of real estate education is undeniable whether you’re a professional evolving in real estate and built environment industries, a student or even an aspirant home-buyer. The fact is real estate governs so many aspects of our everyday’s lives that we cannot ignore the impact on our societies, economies and lifestyle.

This is even more true since the pandemic outbreak and the challenges the industry had to face with. While the sector has demonstrated its innovation in bringing technology to another level, resulting in noticeable shifts in the workspace, in the retail process or just how we used to buy and sell real estate e.g digital viewings, digital contracts to name a few. Real estate also revealed some of its weaknesses in answering a major global downturn.

The Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted the real estate industry, especially the assets closed to prevent the spread of the illness: offices, hotels, restaurants, malls suffered from the lockdown measures causing a global turnmoil that many experts believe the business will have to re-invent itself to get back to pre-pandemic levels. On the contrary, the residential sector has shown resilience and unexpected growth, helped by low mortgage rates and a buyer’s appetite for new living aspirations. The successive lockdowns and remote working requirements have changed people’s relationship with property in general. The consequence is that more and more people are looking for spacious homes to improve their health, hygiene and safety. A garden, a bigger kitchen, a home-gym or a home office are now on the buyers top list.

Real estate and built environment are and will remain essential, by their nature: our modern lifestyle depends largely on the quality and efficiency of the assets we use to live in, work, entertain and consume. This is even more true today with the challenges that will shape the future of real estate: upcoming environmental and sustainability issues, social impact with population growth, functional design and adaptability to match consumer and workers needs. Add to that, the ever-evolving regulations and new technologies forcing businesses and workforce to adapt.

Undoubtedly, the benefits of real estate mastery have never been more important. Basically, anyone in its lifetime will need to be educated or knowledgeable about real estate. Renting an apartment, buying a home, calculating a mortgage or property taxes, designing a kitchen, flipping a home…require basic know-how. This is even more true for real estate professionals: their jobs and careers depends on their expertise. Being able to give the right advice, staying compliant, adapting to technology trends, developing good practices and ethics, assimilating sales skills…All of this require a solid foundation where real estate education is the pillar. That’s the reason why the most successful professionals are also the most knowledgeable in a variety of subjects. Developing in-demand skills are the key to clients trust, especially when it comes to life-changing decisions.

Real estate education does not stop after graduating, when getting that long awaited job or starting your dreams business venture: its a lifelong process demanding time and dedication. Its important to focus both on hard skills and soft skills for a thriving career. Most of people tend to prioritise hard skills as an automatism. As the sum of the technical knowledge gained through a career or education, hard skills help us ”do the job”. But to accomplish more and stand out from the crowd, soft skills must be developed. What makes a real estate professional successful is the combination of personal habits and traits that shape the way how to work individually or as part of a team.
