The study examine the perspective of graduating students of Estate Management in two universities in Southwest Nigeria on issues bothering on professional practice of estate management, their job interest and readiness to practice as surveyors, knowledge of what estate firms are expecting from graduates, and the likely motivating incentive that could make them work in real estate organisation in Nigeria. Survey approach was adopted. Structured questionnaire was administered on all the 97 and 89 final year students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife Osun state and the Federal University of Technology, Akure Ondo state respectively. Findings reveal that majority of the students had knowledge and understanding of what professional practice entails and were aware of employers’ expectations but with the notion that it is not so easy to establish a private practice as a professional, majority would preferred employment outside estate surveying and valuation in Nigeria. However, both monetary and non-monetary incentives could serve as encouragement and endear young graduates to professional practice in Nigeria.
