I’ve passed my real estate broker’s exam and am moving towards opening my own real estate brokerage, and I’m very excited to offering my services to buyers and sellers in Louisville, Kentucky. What’s the difference between a real estate agent and a real estate broker, you ask?  

Real estate agents and brokers are titles that are heard commonly, sometimes interchangeably. However, a real estate broker often has more education and training and is a step above a real estate agent. A broker can work independently or can hire real estate agents to work under them. A real estate agent cannot work independently; they must work for an employing broker.

Knowing the types of real estate professionals can help you make informed decisions when you’re buying or selling a home.  Always feel free to call Kristy Thompson, Real Estate Broker, for questions about all things related to buying, selling and renting homes!
