In NC, we have the option to work exclusively for a buyer, exclusively for a seller or to work as a dual agent - representing both buyer and seller.
Personally, I believe that just because we as NC agents have the option to work as a dual agent doesn't mean that's the right decision for everyone. I prefer to work exclusively with a buyer or exclusively with a seller, NOT for both parties.
I consider loyalty a pretty big deal, and that's exactly what's sacrificed when taking on the role of a dual agent. While working with clients I get to know a lot about them, their families, their goals and fears, confidential information that they wouldn't want the other party to know. I'd much prefer to be firmly on one client's team and be able to work for their best interests, giving advice, support and guidance as their exclusive agent.
Some agents may certainly feel that dual agency is a good fit for them and that's fine but it just doesn't work for me.
