Seller's Agent/Listing Agent

 

A seller's agent acts solely on behalf of the seller. A seller's agent has fiduciary duties to the seller which include reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, and full disclosure.

Although a seller's agent does not represent the buyer, a seller's agent must treat buyers honestly and fairly. A seller's agent must also disclose all material facts about the seller's property that are known by the broker.
