Interview Tips

Research the Company

Jump on the website and see what the company is about, who is currently working there, make sure you can pronounce the company name and that of whom you are meeting with.

Interview Location

Most importantly make sure you know exactly how to get to the interview location. You should allow an extra 15 minutes to get to the location, but do not enter the premises more than 5 minutes prior to your interview.

Assess What You Are Looking For

During your interview with Resolver you should have assessed the exact Role/Company/Salary/Location you are looking to work in, therefore this role should be suitable for you, however you must also assess whether they will find you suitable for the role, this is where you must assess why you will be an asset to their company.


  • Ensure you choose an appropriate outfit for the interview; conservative and neat avoiding loud ties, bright socks or esoteric clothing.
  • Make sure your shoes are clean and avoid overpowering aftershave/perfume.
  • Dress in dark blue, black; darker outfits give an image of control, while lighter ones tend to show a need for attention.
  • Make sure that you are still well presented if you take off your jacket
  • DO NOT smoke before you go into the interview or spray strong smelling cologne or perfume.
  • Take out all piercings and ensure tattoos are covered to the best of your ability.
  • First impressions really do count in Real Estate.

  • Warmth
  • Honesty
  • Rapport
  • Energy
  • Enthusiasm
  • Clear communication

Maintain eye contact and listen to what the interviewer is saying. Emphasise your strengths and stay positive; focus on experience and personal qualities


ON TIME – It is extremely important you aren’t too early or late at all. We suggest enter the premises 5 minutes early not a minute earlier as this can quite often put the interviewer off side (especially if they are busy finishing up some other work, they will feel rushed if you are sitting and waiting for fifteen minutes)

FIRST IMPRESSIONS – When the interviewer enters the room you must stand, smile & make eye contact when you shake their hand. It is also important you say their name and do not sit until you are asked, or sit simultaneously with the interviewer.
