depends on which side of the transaction I'm on.  With a buyer is advising about a lender. With a seller I think perhaps professional marketing.

Evelyn - I believe Tony Lewis put it pretty well. We are representing the best interest of our clients. We do this by advising them and providing them information in order to make the best decision for their situation, and then we help make sure the transaction moves along and closes.

Your question Evelyn, begs for a cosmic answer that sufficiently embraces all duties of the agent. Such statements are hardly aligned with 'most important' intent of the question.

My most important role is to keep my client from harm.

That can be through being the emotional buffer..
or the experienced guide..
or the seasoned warrior...
or the vigilant guard on the wall.
