This question is for your broker owner to answer, ask him/her, not the rest of us.

There is no reason that you couldn't sell to anyone and not be required to "go through" your broker. Your employment agreement- if you have one- should address this issue.

I think we agree, he should be able to - but I think the agreement needs to be reviewed.

Emily,

Indeed you can sell your own home as a FSBO....in doing so, be certain not to create a connection between your personal activity and the agency for which you work.

Of course you can. You should talk to your broker about the policy in place. If the property is not listed and no commission is involved- I see no problem.

Emily,

You have the same property rights as anyone else. Yes you can FSBO your property. Just wright up a contract and hire an atty. or title company to close.

I have asked this same question.

Good Luck!

Most likely you can, if not listed.

However, as everyone suggests, read your contractors agreement.

How can any of us answer this question without knowing your Broker rules and agreement you signed?

Take a look at your employment agreement with your broker. Then ask your broker.
