A small number—usually employed in large or specialized firms—sell commercial, industrial, agricultural, retail or other types of real estate. Every specialty requires knowledge of that particular type of property and clientele. Agents who sell or lease industrial properties must know about the region’s transportation, utilities, and labour supply. Whatever the type of property, the agent or broker must know how to meet the client’s particular requirements.
