    Great concept with this post. Many agents have a lack of knowledge with certain aspects of the sales process. Greater education is required accross the industry to avoid potential pitfalls protecting realtors, buyers and sellers.

  2. The answer, by the way, is C. Dual agents are quite limited in the duties they’re allowed to perform.
