We want you to see from our website exactly how MD Properties operates so you can make a decision before enquiring if we're the right company to grow and develop you as an individual.
MD Properties’ commitment to training provides for a diverse set of classes, technology and other opportunities. We will hand you the key to success in real estate, if you are a hungry, talented, committed and determined individual. In MD Properties we have 5 different divisions that offer our Associates the opportunity to grow and experience all areas of Real Estate.
In just four weeks, our new agent induction program provides an introduction to our company philosophy, office procedures, technology and more. The fundamentals of real estate are also covered: contracts, listing presentations, buyer presentations, financing, and business development and personal marketing. There is a module on goal setting and writing an effective personal plan, as well as a module on legal issues. This program is company funded and the instructors have trained many agents towards successful real estate careers.
At MD Properties, we believe that new agents benefit from working closely with a seasoned agent. The mentor assists the new agent with first sales contract, accompanies them on a marketing presentation and offers advice on many aspects of the real estate business. This, in combination with assistance from the immediate supervisor, trainer, and other resources, provides the new agent with the hands-on support they need and increases their comfort level in working with clients.
Weekly Sales Meetings
Led by the one of the Residential or Commercial Directors, weekly sales meetings include hot real estate topics, market updates, and occasional outside speakers. An exciting advantage to the weekly sales meeting is the Virtual Tour of new listings. In a presentation, agents can preview all new listings, thus promoting them to their internal market first! Many times we meet offsite at locations that are important to our agents.
Family belonging spirit
We get together on a monthly basis to celebrate our victories and learn from our mistakes in different venues around the city experiencing different restaurants which represent local “cuisines” of our multinational team members. We have always considered that we are part of MD Properties family where talented and committed people are always welcomed to join.
Achievers of the Month
Every month we recognize the hard work and efforts of the top performing team members in each of the divisions so everyone has the chance to be recognized for being the best in their division in that month.
In the Annual Awards the consistent performers are recognized for their incredible achievements throughout the year. This is a very tough competition as the prizes are substantial and many stars of the MD Properties family fight for it.
Everyone’s birthday is celebrated in the MD Properties family.

Want a sneak preview of what it means to be a property consultant? Are you intrigued by the possibility of charting your own career path? Do you seek to move beyond mere theory to make a lasting difference? Do you consider team work an opportunity for personal growth? If so, we encourage you to apply for an internship at MD Properties.
MD Properties’ internship programs give students from a range of disciplines the opportunity to learn more about what a career in real estate can offer. Our interns work on real projects and are mentored by senior property consultants, getting the true feel of the MD Properties experience and the life style of a property consultant.
All interns are assigned to case deals and given responsibility for particular portions of the work. They participate in case team meetings and interact with clients, experiencing the day-to-day work of professional property consultants. The work offers many opportunities for interaction not only with MD Properties Executives, but also with senior clients and wealthy individuals.
Lasting for two to three months, an internship is an ideal “mutual fit” assessment—as you get to know the property consulting business. Orientation and training sessions are offered throughout the internship aimed at providing additional insight into the real estate consultant profession.
The program is also a good way to meet MD Properties’ most important asset—its people. By attending training sessions, working on case deals with other consultants, and participating in office social events, interns can get to know the people they may one day work with at MD Properties.
The best way to apply for an internship is to send your resumes along with a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning the proposed period.
