A Day in the Life



The life of a real estate agent is fast-paced, exciting, and can change from one day to the next. You’ll play many roles and wear many hats, but the rewards of being a real estate agent can be substantial. Let’s look into a day in the life of a real estate agent. When working with a seller, your responsibilities expand to include several things not often thought about. Your roles might include stepping into the shoes of a marketing and branding specialist to make suggestions and point out key features that will help the property sell quickly and for the desired amount. You will need high quality photos and videos of the property to accurately depict to a potential buyer what exactly they are looking at. This will require steps like staging furniture and things inside the property to make it more aesthetically pleasing. All of this ties into being a professional property promoter.


Negotiating is also a key factor in being a successful real estate agent.When working with a potential buyer, you will step directly into the role of tour guide and driver. This is the most often considered role of a realtor. Making hints and suggestions about the interior decoration options available to the buyer will improve the likability of the property. Advising on the potential for add-on structures and landscaping will help improve the perceived value of the property. The world of real estate is surrounded with big life changes – marriages, babies, divorces, upsizing, downsizing – and some of the most exciting things about real estate are the constant changes and energy. Lifelong friends and lifelong buyers and sellers are made through being a real estate agent. Each and every day brings new challenges and new successes.
