Tips for Writing a Better Broker Resume

1. Find the relevance of your non-broker jobs

You’re expected to outline your recent work history on your resume. But you don’t have to, nor should you, give more than the basic details on any job that doesn’t pertain to your current goals.

Keep this tip in mind when drafting your work history, so you don’t type out long descriptions of jobs that won’t speak to your target employers. Often a great resume strategy for unrelated jobs is to focus your description on the “soft skills” you gained there that now complement your overall skillset.

Example:

Broker, AWZ Food Services Inc., San Diego, CA | October 2017 to Present

— Serve as key liaison between grocers, customers, and food manufacturers

— Help drive revenue growth, analyze market trends, and define contract terms

— Ranked #3 on a 30-member team for client retention

— Praised for expertly managing communications with diverse stakeholders

Administrative Assistant / Receptionist, KZU Inc., San Diego, CA | August 2015 to September 2017

— Gained strong early experience in customer relations and task prioritization in a fast-paced setting

2. Divide broker duties and achievements

Whenever your job description includes points with specific numbers or percentages, consider setting those points off from the other information. You can format the points differently or use subheadings such as “Highlights” or “Key Achievements.” This structure helps the hiring manager see how you’ve made a tangible positive impact on your past employers.

Example:

Broker, AWZ Food Services Inc., San Diego, CA | October 2017 to Present

— Serve as key liaison between grocers, customers, and food manufacturers

— Help drive revenue growth, analyze market trends, and define contract terms

Highlights:

— Ranked #3 on a 30-member team for client retention

— Praised on all five formal reviews for expertly managing communications with diverse stakeholders

3. Get more descriptive in your profile

When writing their Profile summary, many jobseekers attach a generic adjective to their professional title (for example, “Motivated Real Estate Broker” or “Dedicated Sales Representative”).

Find an adjective that’s more original and specific to you since this is often the first word hiring managers will read on your resume. Your chosen adjective should reflect a distinct attribute or a unique approach you take to your field. It should also preview the themes and bullet points you develop further down the document.

Example:

  • Resourceful Real Estate Broker with 12+ years’ experience in property markets across multiple states.
  • Targeted Resource Allocation
  • Leveraged promotional events, social media, and other novel marketing strategies to promote properties, leading to a 10% increase in offer prices

 

Key Skills Hiring Managers Look for on Broker Resumes

Include a “Key Skills” section for a more effective broker resume. This section gives hiring managers a quick overview of your expertise and value. It also helps your resume perform better in ATS scans. Consider including any of the terms below:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Client Satisfaction & Retention Contract Negotiations
Customer Relations Federal Real Estate Law
Local Real Estate Law Market Trend Analysis
Marketing Strategy Development Personnel Training
Policy Renewals Portfolio Management
Process Streamlining Revenue & Profit Growth
Stakeholder Relations Management Targeted Resource Allocation

Common Action Verbs for Broker Resumes

A well-chosen verb helps show the value and dynamic nature of your work. It’s especially useful as the first word of your bulleted achievements in your Experience section. Consider using any of the verbs below for bullet points on your broker resume:

Action Verbs
Arrange Broker
Connect Coordinate
Develop Facilitate
Follow up Foster
Leverage Liaise
Link Mediate
Navigate Negotiate
Organize Originate
Promote Represent
Resolve Support

How to Align Your Broker Resume With a Job Posting

For each job in your Experience section, consider adding a company description. You can place this description in brackets right next to or below the company name. It also helps to match formatting. For instance, if you’ve italicized the company name, italicize the description too.

Company descriptions let you show any similarities between your past and desired employers. For instance, maybe you’ve worked for companies in the same industry or of a similar size. By working these details into your descriptions, you can make your resume more inclusive to the job at hand and more likely to produce an interview.
