How is my friend from NJ where my Dad was born & I have several relatives living throughout the state?
If you send me your email I will scan 6 pages of the three different agency disclosure explaining the sub agency, and with the civil code. If you want this changed you must go to the California State Legislature. Honest fair dealing and good faith are some items that both the buyers agent and sellers agent must act with, as well as the sub agency. Maybe were still in the dark ages compared to NJ.
I have no idea how they do it in NJ, but except for the four states I have been licensed in or passed the test, I do my best to never give advice out of state like what to do in NJ from California since I am not licensed there. If someone does take my advice in a state I am not licensed in (Unless they are out of state owners with California property.) they could possibly should the advice I give be wrong and cause them damages, come against me in a court of law. I am sure you are very knowledgeable in risk management, and I salute you for your bravery.
May you sell $1,000,000,000 in real estate in one or more of the next ten years.
