Real estate brokers perform a wide range of tasks that make real estate transactions possible. As agents, real estate brokers sell real estate on behalf of their clients. As business owners, however, they may manage and oversee the work of real estate sales agents in their office.
Common duties include appraising properties and helping set competitive sales prices, counseling sellers on preparing their home for sale, and preparing all documents related to the closing of a real estate transaction. While some real estate brokers focus their efforts only on residential real estate, others focus on commercial real estate and acreage.
