    Before making an appointment with a real estate agent it is important that you know the kind of duties that he will be performing. Until you are aware of his duties you will not be able to understand the specific job that he is required to do. The agent is a person who acts as a bridge between the buyer and seller and strikes a deal that suits both the parties, especially when he acts as a dual agent. There may be a situation when an individual hires an agent, especially for a particular work, such as looking for a self storage property and then making a purchase. Under such circumstance a real estate agent works for the specific buyer only and is paid on behalf of the buyer. There may  also be agents who are hired on behalf of sellers who work to get the seller a good value for the property. It is the duty of the agent to get the best buyer or seller at the most appropriate price, after all this is what he is hired for. Usually the agents prefer to enter into an agreement before the start of work, so that the nature of work and remuneration details are decided well in advance.

    The job of a real estate agent starts very early in the morning, when he starts with the analysis of the market of the previous day. He makes a study of the trends prevailing in the market. They try to understand what is sold in the market and also learn about the different types of listings. This is considered to be the main work of the agents. A real estate agent has a huge work which can never be well defined. When he is working with his different clients he needs to do several jobs. He has to drive around to find suitable properties and make several preparations as well as gathering information as per the needs of the client. While appointing an agent you can inquire about the license of the agent. If your agent holds a license it gives an assurance of the work and his education. Since licenses are not granted to all agents and require the fulfilling of certain criteria, an inquiry about the license is an added advantage and assures you about the quality of work. However, most of the agents and brokers who wish to have a successful career in the business often go beyond their regular work and train themselves so that they have the required skills and talent to tackle all the problems that he may encounter in his day to day activities. It is the duty of any agent to constantly upgrade themselves on the changing laws that are prevalent in the current market situation so that he is able to provide the right advice to the client.

    In any kind of transaction involving different properties, large amount of money is involved and this is the main concern of the parties involved. The buyers main concern is that he should get the right value of his property while the sellers main concern is that he strikes the most profitable deal. It is the duty of a real estate agent to ensure that both the parties get a fair deal of the property. It is the duty of the agents to ensure that the clients are helped with contracts, different kinds of negotiations and also inspections along with the closing processes.
