In the State of Alaska, the very first thing a Licensee must do, is present to you the agency disclosure form. It states what the relationships are/will be. You can choose to work with that agent or not. If you do, they can be Neutral or assist you. There are very distinct differences.
You may walk in and hand them an offer you have already prepared, and THEY MUST BY LAW present it to their client.
A lot of Licensees wont act in the neutral capacity, nor will they assist. I personally will assist a buyer, as I make everything I DO as transparent as possible. Understand though, that this does not mean i don't represent my sellers. Again, there are distinct differences. But I have had much success in this by being honest, open , and fair.... more
