What are the difference between an Estate Agent (UK) and an Exclusive Buyer Agent (USA)?
A. An Estate Agent will only show you the properties he or she has listed in their portfolio. That type of listing is called an “exclusive right to sell” listing. Here in the USA the seller wants the maximum exposure to the market to sell their property so they “list” the property with a selling broker on a “right to sell” listing basis. As brokerage firms we agree to split the already agreed upon fee that the seller is paying.
