  • Dealing honestly and fairly;

  • Accounting for all funds;

  • Using skill, care, and diligence in the transaction;

  • Disclosing all known facts that materially affect the value of residential real property and that are not readily observable to the buyer;

  • Presenting all offers and counteroffers in a timely manner, unless directed to the licensee (Realtor/agent) by another party;

  • Any additional duties that are mutually agreed to with a party.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need an attorney review?

Attorney review of Florida real estate contracts is not necessary.  Florida state contract forms and addenda are supplied by the Florida Association of Realtors (FAR), and are legally reviewed and approved for use.

Can an attorney perform the closing?

Yes.  Attorneys or title companies can perform the closing.  Either entity can hold escrow deposits.  I can recommend either a title company or real estate attorney for you to compare and choose

Is there dual agency in Florida?

Technically, no.  By default, Florida Realtors are "transaction brokers".  See above for the duties of a transaction broker in Florida.

More Home Buying Information

Buying a home is getting more complicated.  Every single aspect of buying a home can be negotiated.  This is the major reason you need an experienced buyer's agent working for you.  


For now (subject to pending national class action litigation), there are no upfront costs when you hire me as your buyer's agent, whether you are buying a new construction home or an existing home.


The seller or builder compensates me when the property sale closes, although this may change in the coming months. 


As your buyer's agent, for your best possible experience, it's important that I use the latest tools and technology, such as lock boxes, drone aerial photography, and electronic document management.
