Working with a Realtor: The Agency Relationship

Realtors are governed by the legal concept of “agency”. An agent is legally obligated to look after the best interests of the person he or she is working for. The agent must be loyal to that person.

A Realtor may be your agent…if you have clearly established an agency relationship with that Realtor. But often, you may assume such an obligation exists when it does not.

We as Realtors believe it is important that the people they work with understand when an agency relationship exists and when it does not…and to understand what it means.

In Real Estate, there are different possible forms of agency relationship,

  • Seller’s Agent
  • Buyer’s Agent
  • Multiple Representation
