Meet our trainer – Rachael Wilschefski
Born and bred into real estate, Rachael Wilschefski has worked in the industry for 20-plus years. Working her way up the LJ Hooker management ladder, Wilschefski began her career as a Business System Operator (BSO) and became a Director after just five years. We uncovered what Wilschefski loves most about her career in real estate and how she began her successful climb up the real estate career ladder.
What inspired you to pursue a career in real estate?
After admiring both of her parents’ success as real estate agents, Wilschefski knew that it was the career path she was born to take.
“My father ran a very successful LJ Hooker franchise for over 30 years,” says Wilschefski. “I was inspired by his success and decided to follow in his footsteps.”
And that she did, embarking on her own LJ Hooker journey before becoming a trainer and assessor at the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ).
What do you love most about working in the real estate industry?
“People. Real estate is a people business,” says Wilschefski.
“It’s very rewarding when you can assist someone in selling or leasing out their biggest asset, and equally as rewarding helping buyers and tenants find their new home.”
Fast forward to now, Wilschefski describes her career-in-real-estate highlight as becoming a trainer and assessor for the REIQ.
“After 20 years practising, I’m fortunate enough to share my knowledge and experience with others who are new to the industry, and help them navigate their way through our registration or license course,” says Wilschefski.
Off the clock
In between marking assessments and training students, Wilschefski loves to kick back and relax; splitting her spare time between her yoga mat and a great book. Although, Wilschefski is happiest of all when spending time with family and friends.
Wilschefski’s tips for success in the real estate industry
To put it simply, Wilschefski’s motto in life is: don’t give up.
“It takes at least a year to start reaping the rewards of your hard work. And when you start kicking goals, don’t stop prospecting – keep your pipeline full,” says Rachael.
“And remember, when pursuing a career in real estate, no doesn’t mean no, it just means not now.”
