November 3, 2022

That is why it is very important to have professionals in the sector who can make all your doubts disappear and accompany you in all the processes, whether you are renting or buying. In the real estate sector, the main actor is the real estate agent.

We might think that their work is based simply on the sale of properties, but this is completely wrong, as their work actually goes much further, from commercial work to negotiation work, including administrative tasks, among others. Below, we detail the role of an estate agent by summarising their main functions.

Commercial functions

This is the main task and an essential part of the day-to-day work of this profession. The real estate agent must deal with clients and apply real estate recruitment techniques that enhance the marketing and strategy of the business.

In addition, another important activity on the commercial side is the search for new clients in order to win contracts and build a large portfolio of clients.

Negotiation functions

Negotiation is one of the most specific skills, as well as one of the most appreciated qualities in a real estate agent.

Negotiation skills are used to deal with the client and to reach agreements between the parties involved. It requires empathy, patience and tactics to obtain the best resolution.

Administrative functions

Real estate agents are also responsible for certain administrative tasks. These may include drafting purchase contracts, notary activities and legal representatives, among others.

Therefore, they must be up to date with the rights and obligations of all parties, as well as being familiar with the relevant laws, etc.

Other functions of a real estate agent are advice, as well as personalised attention in order to resolve any doubts and queries from clients with transparency and confidence, in addition to the after-sales service.
