Job Description for Real Estate Agent

Real estate agents work with clients in order to facilitate the sale and purchase of property and houses. Real estate agents review property value and similar sale prices in an area to determine reasonable prices for selling and buying property. Not every deal is cut and dry though, and at times real estate agents will have to work through lengthy negotiations in order to satisfy all parties involved in the transfer of property. It is in the best interest for a real estate agent to earn as much money for a sale or purchase as possible, as they often work on commission based on the final sale price of a property.
