Andy Brown’s thoughts on Real Estate ‘Agency Relationships’ in Florida!

Andy Brown’s thoughts on Real Estate ‘Agency Relationships’ in Florida!

Agency Relationships Thoughts from The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida

Nothing seems to confuse students in the state of Florida Real Estate 63 Hour Pre License class like the concepts of ‘Agency Relationships’. This is not really surprising. 
The Newest Class at The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida

At the Climer School of Real Estate (The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida if I do say so myself), we like to teach that 1. ‘Agency Relationships’ is a concept, not ‘Real Life’ and 2. The concept of ‘Agency Relationships’ is like a vampire movie or a zombie movie. 

We teach what the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Florida Division of Real Estate want you to know to pass the Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Exam. But… 

Here is what we mean: First, as a Florida Real Estate Licensee, you are not going to walk around thinking or saying, “I am currently a ‘Single Agent’ working with my Broker’s Principal in a ‘Single Agency Relationship!’ ” Simultaneously, you would not be walking around thinking or saying, “I am currently working as a 'Transaction Broker' in a 'Transaction Broker Agency Relationship' for my Broker so I can show my customer listings that my company has in-house. I guess I have no Fiduciary relationships right now.” No! You just are out there, doing your thing. 

These Agency Relationships are a ‘real’ thing with F.S. 475 (and by the way it is F.S. 475.278 Click Here if you would like to read this directly). What I try to get across to my students, as a teaching example and model, is that you can NOT have ‘Undivided Loyalty’ to more than one person or side in any particular transaction. 

 Many students also get wrapped up and confused by trying to mix ‘real’ Brokerages and Franchises and Offices with the ‘concept’ Agency Relationship. As an example: a Coldwell Banker office or an Exit Realty office is not a ‘Single Agent’ relationship nor is it a Transaction Broker relationship. The Agency Relationship depends on who you are dealing with and how you are dealing with them and what ‘duties’ and behaviors you owe them and are required to give them. 

Second, in a Vampire movie or in a Zombie movie; if you shoot a vampire or a zombie in the head, they don’t die. They get up and keep coming after you. That’s because they’re ‘vampires’ and they’re ‘zombies’ and they aren’t ‘REAL’! I also counsel my students to not make more of some things in the class than they are. Sometimes, things are the way they are because Florida Statute 475 says so. If you think about it, that kind of makes things easier. Have you ever heard the phrase, “You can’t fight City Hall”? Well, you can’t fight F.S. 475 either. 

Regardless, this blog article and the way we care about our students are just a couple of the many reasons why we are the very best central Florida Real Estate License School.
