A real estate agent and a lawyer both play an essential role in the process of buying property, so there is often confusion about the difference between an agent and a broker. Choosing the right real estate partner or deciding to pursue a career in real estate can be improved by understanding the key differences between the two players.
What Is a Real Estate Agent?
A licensed real estate agent assists people in selling, buying, and renting property and concluding real estate transactions. These agents try to bring buyers and sellers together to complete real estate transactions.
A real estate agent works at a brokerage firm under a real estate firm or sponsoring brokerage. Sales agents are considered independent contractors and do not earn a salary. Instead, they receive a commission on the value of the property sold.
The sale, rental, and purchasing of real estate are highly regulated. This ensures the real estate industry upholds ethical standards, is efficient, the process is administratively sound, and meets all state regulations. Real estate agents have professional licenses to comply with the industry standards.
