Real Estate Agent Representation
Which party in a real estate transaction is represented by the real estate agent–the buyer or the seller? In any real estate transaction, you have the right to know which party the real estate agent is representing. Your Realtor will have you sign an Agency Disclosure. This form will be presented to you upon first substantial contact. It will indicate if your Realtor is representing you as a Buyer’s Agent, Seller’s Agent, Broker’s Agent, Dual Agent or Dual Agent with Designated Sales Agent.
The definitions are on page 1 of this document and your Realtor will be happy to explain these to you in more depth.
