Deciding On a REALTOR®

The first step in the buying process is deciding on a REALTOR®. Since buying a home is one of the largest purchases and most important decisions of your life, you want an experienced agent working for you. Mike Parker & Company Real Estate, L.L.P. in Round Rock, Texas, represents you as a buyer's agent or as an intermediary in the buying process.

Buyer's Agent Services

A buyer's agent represents the buyer, usually through a written buyer representation agreement. A buyer's agent can assist the owner but does not represent the owner and must place the interests of the buyer first. A buyer's agent must disclose to the buyer any material information known to the agent. At Mike Parker & Company Real Estate, L.L.P., our policy is that a relationship be established through a written contract (Buyers Representation Agreement) so that it will clearly state the responsibilities and obligations that we have to our clients.

Real Estate Intermediary

Mike Parker & Company can also act as an intermediary. An intermediary is when the broker is representing both sides of the transaction. The broker has to comply with The Real Estate License Act, which means the broker must obtain the written consent of each party to the transaction to act as an intermediary. The written consent must state who will pay the broker and, in conspicuous bold or underlined print, set forth the broker's obligations as an intermediary. The broker is required to treat each party honestly and fairly and to comply with The Real Estate License Act. A broker who acts as an intermediary in a transaction:

1. Shall treat all parties honestly.
2. May not disclose that the owner will accept a price less than the asking price unless authorized in writing to do so by the owner.
3. May not disclose that the buyer will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer unless authorized in writing to do so by the buyer.
4. May not disclose any confidential information or any information that a party specifically instructs the broker in writing not to disclose unless authorized in writing to disclose information or required to do so by The Texas Real Estate License Act, or a court order or if the information materially relates to the condition of the property.


With the parties' consent, a broker acting as an intermediary between the parties may appoint two persons who are licensed under The Texas Real Estate License Act and associated with the broker. One person will be appointed to the Seller to communicate and carry out instructions given by the Seller. The other person is appointed to the Buyer to communicate with and carry out instructions given by the Buyer.
