Working with Real Estate Agents: North Carolina's Revised Brochure

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Arts

It always seemed odd to me that the client had to offer a signature on a detachable panel to confirm that the agent had discussed the role of the real estate agent with them as required by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission.

And the agent signed nothing, but took the detachable signature panel as a record of that conversation.  I always felt that the client should hold a signature, or at leas the agent's name and firm's name.

So I printed signature panels and had customers sign them, and left the panel in the brochure attached for the client.

I also always put a business card decal on the front of the brochure so that person has easy access to my contact information.

In 2009 the NC Real Estate Commission revised the form.  Someone had an epiphany that brought their thinking into line with mine.  They have also placed a form on the main body of the brochure for the agent to enter information for the client.

Seems fair to me, and reduces the awkwardness of tearing off signatures and leaving the customer empty-handed.

Carol,

Yep.  And it seems so obvious, doesn't it?

W e have an agency disclosure form that is signed by the agent and the client. Not quite as in depth as you brochure.

Terry Bnnie,

I think our brochure gives a good basic explanation, and the agent should augment it with further explanation.
