A real estate broker is a real estate agent who continues their education and successfully receives a state real estate broker license. Unlike real estate agents, brokers can work independently and start their own brokerage, hiring other real estate agents.

A broker has passed a broker’s license exam and received education beyond what the state requires of real estate agents. They understand real-estate law, construction, and property management. Real estate agents are required to work under the supervision of a broker.
