Our Story

30 I didn’t make those rules.

31 Q You’re saying it says in there that you need to

32 get consent, informed consent, from the parties

33 until you have a written offer of purchase?

34 A Well, you’re — again, if you’re delving further

35 into this, there are two aspects of, you know, a

36 dual agency. One is what is a dual agency. The

37 second aspect is what provisions or what mechanics

38 you put in place when you’re enacting that

39 particular dual agency.

40 Q Okay. So here, which is what the Garniers signed

12 and explain that to them, why you felt you didn’t

13 need to get this written consent at that time.

14 A I didn’t need to get written consent at that time.

15 Again, we did not have an impending transaction.

16 If you read this, you’re — I would suggest you’re

17 misinterpreting this yourself. As the particular

18 point all I had was a potential buyer who had

19 expressed the possibility of putting in an offer

20 if the Garniers were interested in selling

21 Q That’s your legal interpretation of your

22 responsibilities?

23 A That — That is the interpretation as to the

24 written instructions from the Working with a

25 REALTOR brochure and instructions from the

26 Licensee Practice Manual.
