JomEstate has a built in mechanism to create/control Real Estate Companies and Agents. Each Company can have unlimited Agents, however an Agent can join only one Company. The main difference between Agents and Company is that a Company can control Agents listings and Agents itself by adding or deleting them.
Screen 1: Companies listing
Each Company or Agent needs to have an actual Joomla user-assigned to it:
- This user needs to be unique for each Company or Agent
- When adding an Agent from the Front Admin by the Company, Joomla user account needs to be created for that Agent
- Agent does NOT have any membership.The Agent inherits the membership details of the company he belongs to.
There are two user types in JomEstate:
- Public User who can add listings.
- Companies that have Agents.
