What is the difference between real estate and a estate agent?

    Hi,

     

    I don't know what is an estate agent, but I am not sure what real estate is and the jobs involved in that.

     

    Can someone explain?

     

    Thanks

    Michael Earl

    They are the same thing, they sell houses. Real estate is the industry. You are either a salesperson who sells houses or a property manager who looks after all the rental properties collecting rent money, doing routine inspections, finding new tenants etc. Hope that has sorted your confusion :-)

    Not sure what the equivalent term is in India, where you appear to be Michael, but "real estate agent" here in Oz is pretty much the same as "estate agent" in the UK - although they do seem to work a lot harder here!

    Lol Yeh all they seem to do in the UK is sit at a desk and answer a phone. I do not like the way it works in the UK to sell your home, no wonder it takes ages! Very frustrating when you know how it works in oz.
