Common misconceptions about real estate recruiting:


Only the large firms can attract top talent.


We are a boutique firm with greater individual experience than the average real estate recruitment consultant.


Whilst larger firms might rely on their 'name' and candidates applying to jobs; we are more 'proactive' (less reactive) and use our headhunting techniques. We utilise the 'several' industry specific job platforms that we have at our disposal - casting the net as wide as possible on your behalf.

Worries SMEs have:​


Budget constraints may limit hiring options.


We work within your budget parameters while still delivering high-quality candidates.


Time Commitment: Even using a recruitment agency, the process still requires time investment from an SME.
