Right from the start, it is important to confirm the working relationship you have with the REALTOR you are talking to. There are many subtleties to representation and the disclosures and services available to you based on that representation. This is a very general overview and invitation to dive deeper into understanding how representation works. Please see the form, Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services for more info. For a deep dive, I'd be happy to meet with you and discuss the more nuanced elements of representation, including "Can I represent a buyer and seller, or two buyers, who have competing needs?", "Can I purchase a property from a client or sell a property to a client?", and "What happens if I want to buy a property my client also wants to buy?".
