What Does a Real Estate Assistant Do?

Real estate assistants provide administrative support to a real estate agent or broker. Some real estate assistant duties vary based on whether the professional is a licensed real estate assistant. Common duties of an unlicensed real estate assistant include posting property listings, filing documents, greeting clients, answering the phone, and assisting with property closings. A licensed real estate assistant typically has increased responsibilities and are qualified to relieve the agent or broker of major duties, like assisting with closings and co-managing open houses.
