Real Estate Broker job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimize your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialized, consider including the specialization in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Examples of Real Estate Broker job titles

  • Real Estate Broker
  • Managing Real Estate Broker
  • Commercial Real Estate Broker
  • Real Estate Broker (Part-Time)
  • Real Estate Agent

Real Estate Broker job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Real Estate Broker job summary

Our established real estate brokerage firm has more leads than we can reasonably manage, so we’re hoping to add two more experienced and licensed Real Estate Brokers to our team. The successful candidates will be responsible for overseeing a team of Agents as well as brokering deals for the sale and lease of residential properties. We work with single-family dwellings as well as multi-unit complexes, so if you have experience in both aspects of the residential market, we want to hear from you. If you’re studying for your license, we might be willing to bring you on as an Agent with opportunities for advancement.

Real Estate Broker responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organization and who the job reports to.

Examples of Real Estate Broker responsibilities

  • Manage and oversee a team of Real Estate Agents
  • Follow up on leads for buyers and sellers
  • Negotiate and prepare contracts prior to the sale or lease of a residential property
  • Inspect homes prior to listing them and work with agents on staging, repairs and maintenance
  • Prepare comp lists for properties in similar geographic areas to those in our listings
  • Track contract term fulfillment for properties
  • Advise property buyers and sellers on best practices and pricing strategies
  • Assist agents with continuing education
  • Attend property closings and ensure all contract terms are met by both parties

Real Estate Broker qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Real Estate Broker skills

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Business preferred
  • State Real Estate Broker license required
  • 3+ years’ experience as a Real Estate Agent or Broker a plus
  • Excellent closing skills
  • Ability to mediate disagreements between buyers and sellers
  • Experience with tenant representation preferred
  • Exceptional communication skills
  • Working knowledge of computer programs and processes
