What is the difference between a dual agent and an intermediary?

1 minuteread

A dual agent is a broker who represents two parties at the same time in accordance with common law obligations and duties. An intermediary is a broker who negotiates the transaction between the parties subject to the provisions of Section 1101.559 of The Real Estate License Act. The intermediary may, with the written consent of the parties, appoint licensees associated with the intermediary to work with and advise the party to whom they have been appointed. In a dual agency situation in which two salesmen are sponsored by the same broker but are working with different parties, the broker and the salesmen are considered to be agents of both parties, unable to act contrary to the interests of either party.
