Is there a possibility that you can have an agreement with two different agents for the same property. One for rental and second for sale

Yes. They are two very different functions.

Yeah, I thought that the response from Ron was a bit over the top too. I guess it depends on what the circumstances were, but the example from Bill E. makes sense.

That is what makes for a VIP: Ridicule and a realtor's legal opinion.

In our state, the would be practicing law w/o a license, grounds for discipline and/or revocation.

Try this scenario : unit is for rent or sale. Rental agent doesn't have a real estate license, only rents property. Realtor, preferably one with social skills and the ability to communicate clearly, is working on a purchase. Offer falls thru (financing, can't agree on $$, whatever). Buyer (now "Tenant-to-Be") goes back to rental agent and signs a lease.

This has got to be one of the most ridiculous questions ever!

Why would you WANT to?
This is undoubtedly grounds for litigation.
