A broker may be considered a nonagent when dealing with a customer

Express Agency

The principal and the agent may enter into a contract, or an express agreement, in which the parties formally express their intention to establish an agency and state its terms and conditions.

A listing agreement (seller representation agreement) authorizes the broker to find a buyer or a tenant for the owner's property.

An express agency relationship between a buyer and a broker is created by a buyer representation agreement.

Implied Agency

An agency may also be created by implied agreement. This occurs when the parties act as though they have mutually consented to an agency, even if they have not entered into a formal agency agreement.

The real estate professional may also be denied compensation on the grounds that there is no written agreement, as required by law.
