The Benefits of Dual Agency

by | Oct 26, 2022

When signing the standard Hawaii Assn. Of Realtors HAR Exclusive Right To Sell Contract, Section A-1 allows the seller to either accept or reject Dual Agency. If a seller agrees to Dual Agency, it means that they are willing to accept an offer brought to them by either their Realtor® or another Realtor® within the brokerage contracted to list and sell their property. Some sellers are wairy of this option, feeling that they potentially may not be represented correctly, that confidential information may be shared, that they may not get what they are paying for. Yet, the Dual Agency Disclosure and Consent agreement, which must be signed by the seller, and ultimately the buyer, if Dual Agency occures, is very clear on this subject, clarifying the: Purpose, Creation of the Client/Licensee Relationship, Dual Agency/Potential Conflicts, Disclosure, Brokerage Firm and Licensee’s Obligations, Services that can and cannot be provided, and Consent and Waiver. To move forward with the purchase contract, all parties must sign this document.

I have had the pleasure and responsibility of working in a Dual Agency capacity many times in the past five years. I have found the experience very rewarding and mutually beneficial to both my sellers and buyers. In adhering to the National Association of Realtor’s NAR Code of Ethics, it is my responsibility to navigate the transaction process with the best intentions for both sides of the contract. And I have discovered that the buyers, specifically, see great benefit in working with me rather than another Realtor® who doesn’t know the property like I do.

Ultimately it is the decision of my clients when it comes to Dual Agency. I am here to provide the service they need and expect.

What Clients Are Saying

“We did speak to another agent before we decided to go with Jen and the agent took two days to respond to my email! It was very obvious from the start that Jen is the type of Realtor® we want to work with. Highly recommended!”
