Difference Between Author Profile Information and Agent's Information
From the visitor's point of view, there is no difference, and information for an agent and author will be displayed similarly.
From the website admin point of view, an author is a site's user/member who logs in to the website and adds a property using the admin side ( If his role is the author or above ) OR adds a property from the front end property submission page ( if his role is a subscriber ). An agent is a custom post type. Any user with a role equal to or above the author role can add those agents into the database and assign properties to those agents later. So, it is a flexible feature that can be used to suit your needs.

You can configure your user information from edit profile page ( Please check the related documentation section for details of setting up front end profile edit page ).
