When I go to a listing, one of the first items on the agenda is the disclosure form. In MA you have to choose to be a Seller Agent, a Buyer Agent, a Facilitator, a designated Seller and Buyer agent, or a Dual Agent.
So lets say the seller chooses for us to be a Seller Agent, because that is what the seller wants - someone to sell their property. Then after interviewing a few agents, they choose another agent to list their property. I now know the Seller's "private" information and perspective. I have signed a paper that says I will give them undivided loyalty. How do I show that property? There is no longer any sub-agency in my area, so I have to be a a Buyer Agent, a Facilitator, a designated Seller and Buyer Agent, or a Dual Agent. How does this process not confuse the public? How does it not increase the liability problems these new agency designations were supposed to fix? It seems like we have made the process more confusing and more open to problems.
