- and Treat all parties to a real estate transaction honestly and fairly.

An owner’s agent must perform the broker’s minimum duties above and must inform the owner of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent or subagent by the buyer or buyer’s agent.
As agent for buyer/tenant: The broker becomes the buyers/tenant’s agent by agreeing to represent the buyer, usually though a written representation agreement. A buyer’s agent must perform the broker’s minimum duties above and must inform the buyer of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent by the seller or seller’s agent.

- Who will pay the broker for services provided to you, when payment will be made and how the payment will be calculated.
