Real Estate Agent
A person who facilitates the sale of real estate. Real estate agents network with potential buyers, show properties to them, and generally act in a way that will help sell the property in the shortest possible period of time. A real estate agent receives a commission for his/her services, usually a percentage of the value of the property sold. In the United States, a real estate agent must receive a license from the state in which he/she works. A real estate agent is an employee of a real estate broker.
