John, Home Seller in Summerfield, NC

Can I ask the real estate agent who referred me to another agent in a different city questions about the contract?

Asked by John, Summerfield, NC Sat Nov 2, 2013

The selling of our vacation home has taken some crazy twist and turns. I don't understand a simple contract as it is. Now some papers are being presented that have me clueless. WIth all the rules and regulations I wasn't sure.

Help the community by answering this question:


Your agent who wrote the offer for you has an agency with you and is more familiar with the contract. If you don't understand it please reach out to that agent.

As for the agent who referred you, by all means you can ask them about the qualifications of the agent they referred you to. If you are having problems communicating and understanding your agent, this agent may be able to assist. They are not a party to the contract though and may not be able to advise you on our contract.

I would consult the agent who referred you to the vacation home agent. That agent and help you figure it out or ask questions for you so you fully understand. Most agents will help you if you ask.

Yes you can. Normally, the best person to ask would be the agent handling the transaction as they would have the most information about the contract and what is happening, however the agent who referred you to that agent will be able to answer questions, given they have a copy of the contract. Vacation home laws and those things are part of a NC Brokers standard education, and any broker could answer questions as long as they are legally allowed. I don't see why your referral agent wouldn't be able to answer any questions you may have.

Hope this helps!

If you are concerned, you should absolutely seek the opinion of the original agent-- or any other agent in your area which you trust. :) Most are happy to help!

Good evening, John:
Your listing agreement is with the firm the listing agent represents. Your listing agent should take the time to explain everything to your full satisfaction. It is their legal and agency responsibility. If they cannot, ask for a meeting with their broker in charge. If they together cannot explain any paperwork that they prepared and provided for you to sign, you may have a bigger problem. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.
