Working With Agents is so important the NC Real Estate Commision made it Law that We Present it to You.

Working With Agents is a brochure that explains a broker's responsibilities when working with clients. It also explains how agents are compensated.

It's NC State Law that we give you the brochure and discuss it with every potential client before we receive confidential information.

Until you hire an agent you don't have representation in your transaction.

When speaking with listing agents, builder and new construction agents & representatives, and even other buyer's agents you must be cautious with the information you share.


The agents that represent seller's have no obligation to keep any of the buyer's information confidential.​

That's right - their job is to share information with their client.

As a buyer's agent I think it's very important for buyer clients to understand - Once you've hired me, I cannot give any confidential information about you to sellers, buyer's agents, or builders and their agents & representatives without your permission so long as I represent you.


Until you hire a buyer’s agent, you should avoid telling other agents anything you wouldn't want a seller to know.

An agent should ask if you have or want representation so they understand how to treat you in conversations that could involve confidential information.

The Working With Agents brochure is NOT a Contract

You do sign a copy of Working With Agents but it's not a contract. It's a disclosure that's required by the State. We're required to keep a copy as proof that we gave it to you AND that we gave you an opportunity to discuss it.
