Are you thinking about hiring a Calgary real estate agent and are wondering what do real estate agents do all day? If so, we hope you’ll find the text below interesting.
When most people think about the job description for a real estate agent, different images come to mind of somebody who spends the day driving to and from listings, on the phone - speaking with clients, or in front of their computers marketing listings online.
The reality is that a real estate agent’s day encompasses all of these things including the following duties mentioned in this article.
Although there are some agents who specifically work either only with buyers or only with sellers, most agents work with both.
To get started with a home seller, the real estate agent will first meet with that homeowner to discuss their home and offer them tips, advice and suggestions they can use to effectively get their home ready for sale.
These suggestions or tips that they may offer their client include things like de-cluttering, staging, curb appeal improvements, privacy needs (during the sale showing process), minor TLC (DIY or professional renovations), can help to increase the value of the home.
Once their client's home is ready to be listed on the Calgary MLS (Multi-Listing Service), the next thing to do is quality marketing. They do this through their website, their social media channels, and variety of other Real Estate websites including Zillow, Trulia, Craigslist, and many other websites where featured homes and condos for sale can be found online.
A licensed estate professional will also place a For Sale sign in their client’s front yard and run local ad-campaigns to promote their listing in local print publications, when necessary.
After listing their client’s property online, the next thing a local Calgary real estate agent will do is start communicating with buyers who are interested in purchasing their client’s property.
This communication with the buyer may include discussing details about the price of the property and responding to messages via email, text, or phone. This step is imperative because it saves a homeowner the time and hassle of communicating with buyers themselves and also the possibility of disclosing more information about their home than they should if they were selling it themselves.

Besides working with sellers, your Calgary real estate agent may also be an expert at working with buyers as well, from all sides of the City of Calgary: North, NE & NW, South, SE & SW, the East and the West side of the town.
Some of the services that a Real Estate agent will do when working with buyers include meeting with new clients, understanding their needs, learning their particular search criteria, searching for homes that match, and scheduling appointments to view the selected homes.
Before contacting a Calgary Alberta Realtor to help them buy a home, buyers are encouraged to save at least 20% for a down payment on a home, get pre-approved for a mortgage loan and agree with their spouse/partner on what exactly they will be looking for in a home, BEFORE starting their search.
Knowing precisely what you are after (for example: on the right street or neighborhood in SW Calgary), will make your process of searching for a home a lot easier. Proving your agent with such sitemap, they will be able to narrow down the home search and only show you homes matching your search criteria.
Buyers should also be ready and available to visit homes when their agent schedules a house viewing. Thanks to the competitive luxury Real Estate Market it’s important not to wait when searching for homes because they could miss their perfect home if they wait just a day longer.
Besides working with both buyers and seller’s; City of Calgary ab real estate agents are also sole proprietors as well. This means that an estate Calgary Real Estate professional will also spend their days filing documents, working on their blog, keeping track of the expenses, trademarks, and handling the wide variety of associated provided tasks that most sole-proprietors and business owners in Calgary deal with on a daily basis.
Canadian (licensed) agents will also devote a portion of their week to staying on top of local real estate markets, areas, neighborhoods, so that they can accurately pinpoint quality homes their clients may be interested in buying.
Calgary real estate professionals are also experts in developing professional networks of Realtors®, contractors, team members, site personnel, community experts, policy experts, and companies in specific areas. This makes them more efficient to quickly get the best information, expert advice, and deals on particular properties even before they come to market.
