Real Estate Assistant Job Description

What is a Real Estate Assistant?

A real estate assistant works as an administrative assistant in a real estate office and aids one or more real estate agents. This is a good starting point for people interested in becoming real estate agents or licensed real estate agents who are just starting out and have not built up clientele. As a real estate assistant, you may act as a listing manager, transaction coordinator, marketing director, administrative manager or all the above.

A real estate license is not required to work as a real estate assistant, but some real estate agents may use working as an assistant as a stepping stone early in their careers. A high school diploma, computer, literacy and numeracy skills are required. Real estate assistants perform a lot of administrative duties, so office experience is a plus.
