Real estate agents are a collective term for both the people who sell and buy real estate. It doesn't matter if it's residential or commercial property; they can help people sell, buy, or rent it. However, they must meet the state's licencing requirements even though they lack a national licence. In addition, they must abide by all applicable laws and rules pertaining to real estate. Brokers are real estate agents who work for themselves or with a team of other agents.
