Navigating Change

Denise Kinney, President of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage, along with our management team, has prepared our agents with top-tier support and guidance to ensure that they are fully equipped to navigate the nuances of the NAR Settlement Agreement as it pertains to our industry and our mission to help buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals.

Through unparalleled training, support, and a culture of caring we have earned our place as the area's #1 real estate company for the past 24 years and we are committed to continuing to set the bar for success.

Key Takeaways:

  • Commissions have always been, and will continue to be negotiable.
  • NC has long required brokers to enter into written agency agreements. Previously buyer agency agreements were required to be in writing and signed by the broker and client no later than the time of making an offer. This agreement must now be in place prior to the agent showing a property to potential buyers.
