The thesis analyzes the work of real estate agents in the Republic of Slovenia. Firstly, we present the field of real estate in Slovenia and baseline research based on an international research analysis. Based on it all, general hypothesis and multiple research questions were formed. General hypothesis H1, states that there is a correlation between the number of sales of residential properties in 2015 and sociological characteristics of a real estate broker (gender, age). Confirmation or rejection of the hypothesis and answers to researched questions were based on a structured questionnaire. The questionnaire was sent
on the 17th and the 25th of April as well as on May 6th 2016. I’ve received 106 responses of respondents. The research shows that I cannot confirm nor reject the general hypothesis H1. Based on χ2 test dependencies among the factors considered, I confirmed that there is a statistically significant correlation between the number of sales of real estates and gender of real estate agent, but no statistically significant correlation was found between the number of sales of real estates and real estate agent’s age. According to the survey, sales of residential property during the recession (between 2009 (the period before the
recession) and 2015) decreased by 20-40%. Further analyses shows, that the possibility of parking a car "most" influences the decision and that correct entry in national registry of real estate properties "least" influences the decision of purchasing a residential property. On the other hand, arranged real estate property cadaster has a positive impact on the sale of residential real estate.
