Real estate agents help to sell or buy land and any attached property; from humble plots of land and small starter homes, to exotic islands and luxury mansions. Agents are world-wide as the need for buying and selling land and property has always existed and will continue to do so.

A real estate agent acts as the middleman, or broker, between two parties seeking to buy or sell their land and property. Real estate agents have the skills and experience to either market land and property and sell them for the best possible price and conditions, or to seek land and property that suits a client's needs and buy it as cheaply as possible with the most favourable terms. Agents are also knowledgable about their local laws on the buying and selling of property and land.
