No Project

There is no property development project without a site.

Site acquisition is the most important part of property development and the right site choice is essential for successful development.

In this interactive and engaging one-day specialised workshop you will learn how to canvas, door-knock, warm-call and follow-up on your activities to secure a site.

You will learn the politics of people and how to effectively engage with site owners to land a property for development.

This in person and live streamed course assumes no prior knowledge.
