Job Description for Realtor
A realtor is responsible for promoting the listings of various properties to those who may be interested in renting or purchasing the property themselves. Realtors help individuals locate homes and properties that are the most suitable for them based on the budget and any preferences included in the search. A realtor should have a complete understanding of home features and functions before offering showings, and should be familiar with the neighborhoods of properties that are being shown to potential buyers who may have questions. Realtors are responsible for answering any questions clients may have about specific properties, zoning laws and even information regarding the home's title and current owners.
