Laws in countries abroad are stringent and they prefer applicants with a realtor certificate.
"Once you have that under your belt the world is your market," said Chetan Narain, chief executive officer, Narains Corp. "But even I wouldn't want to hire someone without a certificate. It is better to have a certified real estate specialist instead of self-styled, self-appointed property consultants."
You could tap companies from across the world - from Australia to Canada and Europe - for opportunities. West Asia has a booming real estate market and one could get into brokerage and transaction services here after procuring a licence with a local resident as a partner.
Working with international property consultants or international developers allows you to interact with counterparts and seniors at the company's overseas offices thus opening up more opportunities for travel and work abroad. Those working in India also get a chance to deal with foreign investors in the real estate market and learn more about their idea of professionalism and their way of work.
Given the huge real estate potential in India, home is currently the place to be.
