Traditionally, a Real Estate Buyer's Agent provides an updated index of available properties to interested customers. However, due to new technology, the Buyer's Agent role has evolved. Instead of simply finding and providing information on available properties, a Buyer's Agent must proactively network with hundreds of contacts, provide information and advice on market conditions, as well as facilitate the actual purchase of the property. Ideally, Real Estate Buyer's Agents are self-motivated, personable, and driven by personal achievement. In addition, administrative and research skills are a must.
Real Estate Buyer's Agents earn money for each transaction they complete. As you make more transactions, you earn more income.After a few years of disciplined work, it's not unusual for a Real Estate Agent to be earning over $100,000. The more work you put into establishing a client base, the more money you will earn.
