When preparing for an interview for a real estate position, deciding on appropriate attire is just as important as familiarizing yourself with the types of properties sold by the agency. What you look like is the first thing the interviewer sees, and in the competitive real estate industry, you need to project a competent, conservative, professional image.

What to Wear for Real Estate Interview

For your interview, that means professional interview attire. Men will need to wear a good fitting suit in a conservative color, white or pastel shirt, conservative tie, dark socks, and dress shoes.

Women can choose between a pant or skirt suit, blouse (not low cut), hosiery, and closed toe pumps. Hair, make up, and purse (if carried) should be neat and conservative, jewelry minimal, earrings only in ears. Men should leave the earrings off.

Interview Accessories

Carry a briefcase or portfolio with your resume, a pad, a working pen, and some breath mints. Here's more on how to choose interview accessories that will complement your interview attire.

Pay Attention to the Details

Everything should be neat, and clean from your hair to your shoes. Stay away from perfume and cologne, as many people are allergic or averse. Attention to the details of everything, including your attire can make all the difference in getting the job.
