Your Options as a Client
In BC, licensed Realtors provide their services through companies known as “brokerages”. When you become a Client of a real estate professional, the agreement that you sign is with their Brokerage.
Depending on the Brokerage you choose, you will be represented in one of two ways:
Brokerage Agency: all Realtors employed by the firm represent you. All are bound by the same legal duties described above.
Designated Agent: Only your chosen Realtor represents you. They cannot share your confidential information with other Brokerage agents without your permission.
