As Davide mentions, any licensed real estate agent can submit offers; there is no unique or separate test specifically for residential or commercial agents. As a commercial agent I have encountered many residential agents representing neighbors or friends in commercial transactions. Though there are those residential agents who have educated themselves in the commercial sector, more times than not there are items that residential agents overlook or neglect to address. In a nut shell, if you (God forbid) require heart surgery, you most likely will prefer that a heart surgeon perform the procedure rather than your family practitioner; though they both practice medicine and belong to the same industry (medical), one is a specialist. The same applies to real estate.
