A real estate agent is the liaison between interested homebuyers and the available housing market. By building strong relationships with homebuyers, the real estate agent can help them explore options that meet their needs, whether that be location, property type, or home size and price. Your work includes working with sellers to prepare and stage the home for walkthroughs, and planning open house events to put the available homes on display.
