    Is there any difference between...

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask if there is any difference in meaning between:

    1. He is in the real estate business.
    2. He deals with real estate.
    3. He is in the property business.

    For example, I want to say that a person works in the area of the real estate without naming his/her particular profession. Which of the sentences above sounds better?

    1 and 2 are the most clear and are general enough.

    3. is not clear. It could mean he is a builder or developer.

    You might also want to mention, if needed, whether he is a commercial or residential real estate agent.
