A Summer Intern’s perspective…

I started my summer internship at David J Robinson Estate Agents & Auctioneers on the 25th of July 2022 and for the past 5 weeks have been working full time. I have gained a range of skills working with David, Michelle, Cara and Penny, from business administration to the importance of clear and polite phone communication.

From the outset of the internship, I was given the opportunity to talk with people, schedule viewings and answer any questions or queries that they may have. Over the length of my internship, the team at David J Robinson Estate Agents took the time to take me through a range of processes involved with the profession such as: market appraisals, preparation of property details, marketing a property, the importance of viewing feedback and sales progression, in addition to the need to adapt to new technology in an ever-changing marketplace through the use of websites and social media.

The time that was spent explaining these processes developed my ability to answer a wider range of questions that, previously, I would have been unable to answer. It also gave me an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of an agent who goes that extra mile.

Day-in day-out I have witnessed the team’s 70 + years of combined expertise used to make the processes of both purchasing and selling easier for both parties. I feel fortunate to have been able to undertake this internship with such a well-versed group of people.
