Training and Support

Our commitment to this part of your business is superior. Lugtons is the only Hamilton real estate company that has a manager dedicated to the recruiting and training of its sales force. We believe that by focusing on training we are providing our salespeople with the tools and strategies needed on a daily basis. The days of showing a new sales person a desk and a phone and leaving them to it are well gone!

The support is exceptional. The Induction and the structured Start-Up Programme complement the regular company-wide training sessions facilitated over the year. Add this to the many training days plus the extensive on-line systems available from our involvement with our Australasian Real Estate Network and it’s guaranteed that everyone who joins our company has the opportunity to build their business with great confidence.

Comments from some of our sales people:

Heather Whyte - I found the move from a corporate industry into Real Estate an easy transition with the support and training offered as part of my package here at Lugtons. Beginning with an informative induction program, supported with the guidance and the investment of time and training by my sales manager have made this a very rewarding move. I have found value in the online training that Lugtons make available through the RER Network - great modules to support you in building, planning and driving your business. I am looking forward to the conference in Melbourne - what an exciting year I have to look forward to!


Wei Sen Chow - The training and support I have received at Lugtons has been fantastic. It has enabled me to quickly grown my business and become a successful agent. The RER Network Lugtons belongs to is invaluable - the annual conference in Australia has amazing speakers and is very inspirational. I picked up so many tips to help develop my brand and help my clients get superior results when marketing and selling their homes.
