real estate


Real estate agents act as intermediaries between sellers and buyers of real estate/real property and attempt to find sellers who wish to sell and buyers who wish to buy.

In the United States, real estate brokers and their salespersons (commonly called "real estate agents" or, in some states, "brokers") assist sellers in marketing their property and selling it for the highest possible price under the best terms. When acting as a buyer's agent with a signed agreement (or, in many cases, verbal agreement, although a broker may not be legally entitled to his commission unless the agreement is in writing), they assist buyers by helping them purchase property for the lowest possible price under the best terms. A real estate broker owes his client fiduciary duties, those duties include care, confidentiality, loyalty, obedience,accounting & disclosure. A real estate broker owes his customer fair & honest dealing. A real estate broker must request all parties(seller & buyer)sign a dual agency agreement, to protect their license.

In most jurisdictions in the United States, a person must have a license before they may receive remuneration for services rendered as a real estate broker. Unlicensed activity is illegal, but buyers and sellers acting as principals in the sale or purchase of real estate are not required to be licensed. In some states, lawyers are allowed to handle real estate sales for compensation without being licensed as brokers or agents.
