If different agents associated with the same senior brokerage agent (a real estate licensee who supervises other agents) establish agency relationships with different parties to the same transaction, only the lead broker will act as a disclosed limited agent for both buyers and sellers. The other officers continue to represent only the party with whom the officers have already established an agency relationship, unless all parties agree otherwise in writing. The principal broker and the real estate licensees representing the seller or buyer owe the seller`s and the buyer the following obligations: 6. To keep confidential information from the seller or seller, except after subpoena or court decision, even after the termination of the agency relationship; and if two separate licensees working for the same lead broker are involved in a transaction in which one represents the seller and the other the buyer, the lead broker is a dual agent. This is the case because the services provided by each client are provided on behalf of the lead broker. However, residents and individual sellers have personally established only one agency relationship with one of the parties involved in the transaction. The disclosed limited agency allows individual agents who have cooperated with only one party to continue to represent only that party. It is the main broker who is the alternating agent. The disclosed restricted agency is a duale agency.

What the courts want is for the client to understand the consequences of what he had agreed before his agreement. So what are the consequences of the dual agency for the client? one. The buyer orders the broker`s principal agent or broker to disclose to the seller through the buyer, or the seller orders the agent or principal broker to disclose to the buyer through the seller; and an «agency relationship» is a voluntary relationship in which a licensed real estate agent or principal broker (the «broker») agrees to act on behalf of a buyer or seller (the «client») in a real estate transaction.
