The term “fiduciary duty” refers to the legal responsibilities an agent or advisor has to his client. Listing agents have a fiduciary duty to protect the rights of the property owner and make every effort obtain the highest price possible. As a real estate advisor representing tenants and buyers exclusively, my fiduciary duty to my clients is to protect their rights and use my best efforts to obtain the lowest price and most favorable terms possible. Real estate agents presenting themselves to be tenant or buyer representatives, but who also list properties, are generally acting as “dual agents” and should be avoided.
