The Challenge

Key 2 Sale was thriving in a dynamic property market. But they then needed to expand their team to better serve the increasing demands from buyers and sellers.

With their days already packed with the myriad of tasks involved in running a successful real estate agency, finding time for the recruitment process was a real struggle without neglecting their core activities.

On top of that, the roles they needed to fill were not just any positions; they required specific skills and expertise. This was especially difficult in a regional market where such talent was not readily available. This included specialised roles like marketing and videography, which were essential to stay ahead in the competitive real estate landscape.

They needed a solution that could not only understand the nuances of their industry and the specific nature of the roles but also fit these requirements into the unique dynamics of the Mount Gambier market.
