Information About Brokerage Service
Before working with a real estate broker, you should know that the duties of a broker depends on whom the broker represents. If you are a prospective seller or landlord (owner), or a prospective buyer or tenant (buyer), you should know that the broker who list the property for sale or lease is the owner agent. A broker who acts as a sub agent represents the owner in cooperation with the listing broker. A broker who acts as a buyer's agent represents the buyer. A broker may act as an intermediary between the parties if the parties consent in writing. A broker can assist you in locating a property, preparing a contract or lease, or obtaining financing without representing you. A broker is obligated by the law to treat you honestly.
If THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE OWNER:
The broker becomes the owner's agent by entering into an agreement with the owner, usually through a written listing agreement, or by agreeing to act as a sub agent by accepting an offer of sub agency from the listing broker. A sub agent may work in a different real estate office. A listing agent or sub agent can assist the buyer but does not represent the buyer and must place the interest of the owner first. the buyer should not tell the agent anything the buyer does not want the owner to know because the owner agent must disclose to the owner any material information known to the agent.
IF THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE BUYER:
The broker becomes the buyer's agent by entering into an agreement to represent the buyer, usually through a written buyer representation agreement. A buyer's agent can assist the owner but does not represent the owner and must place the interest of the buyer first. The owner should not tell the buyer's agent anything the owner does not want the buyer to know because the buyer agent must disclose any material information known to the agent.
