Florida Law Agency Requirements

Florida law requires all Real Estate Agents to explain the “Agency Relationship” options available to Sellers and Buyers of residential real estate.

The law established three types of agency:

  • Single Agency
  • Transaction Brokerage
  • No Brokerage Relationship

Single Agency: The policy of Coldwell Banker Schmitt is to provide the greatest possible degree of service to our clients, which only occurs in a Single Agency relationship.

For that reason, the company adopted Single Agency as the primary and preferred relationship for working with our clients.

As a Single Agent, we provide you with the full spectrum of services including the fiduciary duties of loyalty, confidentiality and obedience. The benefit to you is that we place your interest above all others, including our own!

We believe this type of relationship is what our clients expect and deserve, while most real estate companies have opted not to adopt Single Agency as the primary and preferred relationship for working with a seller. They have chosen Transaction Brokerage, which, by law, is the assumed relationship between a seller and agent unless they agree to Single Agency or a No Brokerage Relationship.

Transaction Broker: As a Transaction Broker, agents facilitate the transaction by assisting both the buyer and seller, and do not represent one party to the detriment of the other. They provide fair and honest dealing, skill, care and diligence, accounting for all funds, and disclosure of all known facts that materially affect the value of a property in which the client has an interest. The reason most companies have adopted Transaction Brokerage is for the reduced level of liability versus Single Agency.

No Brokerage Relationship

The agent owes the client three duties:

  • To deal with you honestly and fairly;
  • To disclose all known facts that materially affect the value of the property which are not readily observable to you;
  • And, to account for all funds entrusted to the agent.

The key point for the No Brokerage Relationship (non-representation) is for you to not disclose any information you want held in confidence until entering into either the Single Agency or Transaction Broker relationship.  

We believe our adoption of Single Agency as the preferred manner for working with sellers and buyers continues to be a significant factor in the market-leading success of our agents; i.e. we have 38 of the Top 100 producing Agents Keys-wide, more than the next 4 companies combined!  We consider Single Agency a clear differentiator for choosing a Coldwell Banker Schmitt agent to represent your interest when selling your property.
