Real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own businesses. In addition to helping clients buy and sell properties, they may help rent or manage properties for a fee. Many operate a real estate office, handling business details and overseeing the work of sales agents.

Real estate sales agents must partner with brokers, often working on a contract basis, earning a portion of the commission from each property they sell.

Careers in the real estate industry garner a median pay of more than $50,000 a year, with a high of $58,000 for brokers and nearly $49,000 for sales agents, according to the National Bureau of Labor Statistics. Careers in real estate are expected to grow 6 percent, which is as fast as the national average, through 2026.
