Day in the life of a longmont realtor

Realtors’ busy days are packed with varied tasks from paperwork to showing houses to home closings. They do it all! Realtors help clients buy, sell and rent property. This post provides all the info you need if you’re curious what Realtors do every day. 


Realtor Responsibilities


Realtors spend plenty of time interacting with clients or potential clients. They need to communicate by calling, texting, emailing and meeting. Most people buy or sell real estate at some point in their lives, so Realtors also spend time networking. Most Realtors focus on selling residential property. Others sell commercial property, and a small number sell industrial, agricultural or other types of real estate.


Realtors’ busy schedules include a variety of responsibilities: 

  • Advise clients on prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information

  • Compare properties to determine a competitive market price

  • Generate lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features

  • Promote properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services

  • Take prospective buyers or renters to see properties

  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration

  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller

  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met


What’s Your Realtor’s Role?


Realtors work in different capacities depending on the client. For example, Realtor responsibilities vary depending on their role in your transaction: 


  • Listing agent/Seller’s agent: represents the interests of people looking to sell a property

  • Buyer’s agent: a selling broker represents the interest of the buyer

  • Transaction brokerage services: They don’t represent the buyer or seller, but instead act as a neutral resource to help both parties complete a home sale


Administrative Tasks


Realtors have plenty of daily responsibilities. Some Realtors have assistants to help with administrative tasks, while others prefer to take care of these on their own. Here’s an example list of some responsibilities: 


  • Completing, submitting and filing real estate documents and lease agreements

  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds

  • Managing appointments, showings, meetings and open houses

  • Create marketing plans and promotional plans for listings

  • Develop comparative market analysis reports

  • Update websites and share listings on social media

  • Reply to emails and return phone calls/texts

  • Maintain and manage client databases
