Our goal and mission is to get to the closings. That starts with contacting prospects, turning them into clients, listing and selling homes and working out a lot of problems along the way to finally arrive at the closing table when we get paid.

Are you wanting to know what "responsibilities" agent have or what "tasks" they perform?    The tasks are nearly endless.  The responsibilities center around being honest and always fulfilling the fiduciary duties to the client.

This is such a 'cosmic' question that a direction can not be provided since what one does  regarding customers, public and peers is directly related to that agents business description. For example a agent whose business is defined as 'new construction' is dramatically different from the 55+ condo or distressed properties real estate agent.

However, what will prove helpful is to watch this Video form a old blog a couple of tmes.

IT IS TRUE.
