A market is a place where buyers and sellers come with their products and demands & successful transactions are made. However, in real estate there cannot be any physical marketplace or shop, and hence information regarding where and how to buy and sell becomes very crucial. If the information and the interface for interaction do not exist, any transaction would be impossible. This is where the agents and agencies, or the brokerages, come in.

A real estate agent is one who helps a seller find a buyer and a buyer find a seller. The agent helps in marketing the real estate and helps procure the best rate and the best terms from prospective buyers, and get the best deal for the buyer. As a point of information and interaction, an agent looks after the interests of both sides. In certain jurisdictions, brokering requires governmental licensing, although unlicensed brokering goes in frequently. The agent or the agency (which would be an institution for which the agent works and which he represents) would charge a certain fee (either a percentage of the deal amount, or some fixed amount, or some other arrangement) for services rendered. Brokering is a complex process which involves a lot of steps. Although this would differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and the prevalent practice, the steps might include: listing of the property; preparation of papers; advertising; holding ‘open house’ sessions; pre-screening; preparing resource database and informing accordingly; surveying and ‘product demonstration’, etc. Furthermore, agents help in negotiations as well, helping find the best and the cheapest deal.

In this section, we guide you to a comprehensive listing of real estate agents and agencies.
