Good question because Florida is a transactional brokerage state, meaning no fiduciary care responsibility to the client. What good is it to be NAR Realtor if all you can do is ministerial acts anyway? In FL, agent can only facilitate the transaction and act neutral to all parties of the transaction. In FL, you can't place client interest ahead of your own, cannot provide advocacy, advice or consul to give advantage to one party over the other. This is the lion share of the NAR code of conduct. FL agents that behave as buyer agents without a buyer agency agreement are breaking the law! large brokerages with listings cant have agents sell in house listings of another agent, so office policy is to not have buyers sign anything. That friendly FL agent will show you what has sold and what is available, but cant give advice on offer strategy. Worse yet there is no disclosure requirement where an agent has to say what they can do for you, and what they cant. Most people in FL dont know that it is presumed the public knows so no awkward conversation about what little that agent brings to the table besides access to public information and showing appointments.
