‘The house agent is not just a house agent’: Irish house agent teaches a new breed of house agent

The Irish house agents of the future are the ones who have no intention of moving into a new house.

Instead, they’re going to be teaching a new generation of house agents how to live the next 20 years, according to the head of a new training programme for the profession.

And it’s not just about moving into new properties.

The aim is to train a new cohort of house workers who will help to run the houses in their communities and provide a sense of belonging, said Dr Michelle O’Sullivan, executive director of the House Agents’ Association.

It’s an opportunity to learn how to be part of a local community and also how to create a career.

Dr O’Brien said the idea was to create an apprenticeship programme that would allow house agents to take a “fresh perspective” and gain a new skill set.

“I think it’s about being able to live life as an independent person, and be able to be more involved in your community,” she said.

“It’s a very exciting time for house agents.”

The Association’s chief executive, Dr Brian O’Connor, said he believed the apprenticeship would help to prepare the next generation of Irish house buyers.

“The skills that we’re offering are relevant to all the different areas of life, not just the housing one,” he said.

The program is one of several to be offered by the Irish House Agents Association this year.

The organisation has already offered the training for house hunters, property agents, carpenters and others.

“In the last two years we’ve gone from four to five, but we’re looking at four to six,” said Dr O’Connell.

“And that’s just to get the young people up to the speed of learning.”

The association is also working on a training programme that will give a glimpse of what a house buyer might face in their 20s, 20s.

“What you’ll see is a very different view of what house agents can do, what a homeowner might need to be able,” said Ms O’Halloran.

“We’ve got to change the way we think about house agents, because we’ve got a young generation that is going to need to become house agents at some point in the future.”
