The study examines the influence of job satisfaction factors on turnover of Estate Surveyors and Valuers in Lagos State.The population of the study are Estate Surveyors and Valuers who were sampled using stratified random sampling technique. The primary data were obtained using self-administered questionnaire; it was served on 179 respondents.Data collected were analyzed using frequency distribution, percentage and mean score, while ANOVA was used to test the hypothesis; it was postulated at 95% confidence level. The study discovered that timely remuneration, feedback to employees, creating opportunities to enhance professional knowledge, equitable company promotion policy and ability to learn from co-workers were the factors which mostly encouraged the respondents to stay at their jobs. It was further established that all the job satisfaction factors (payment, supervision, work condition, promotion and interrelationship with co-workers) have equal effect on the respondents’ job retention. The study provided estate surveying and valuation firms with information on the importance of job satisfaction in ensuring workforce stability thereby highlighting the need for firms to focus on improving job satisfaction factors.
