Should we Require all Site agents for Builders to have a Real Estate License?

By
Real Estate Agent with Maggio Shields Real Estate Brokerage

Recently I was in an advanced Real Estate class and our RPAC lobbyist brought up site agents and what each Delaware County, all of three, were considering to pose to legislature about licensing requirements for site agents.  I was surprised that our largest board did not find it necessary to hold site agents to the same standard as the Realtors bringing clients to the builders site. 

I personally think this simply should be a public insistence to have site agents disclosure their client relationship and offer the buyer and opportunity to seek representation.  I would like to know my communities thoughts and how other states have handled the situation.  And what happened in Maryland were they did require and did rescind?

 

Thank you,

Joseph,

I suppose that the Homebuilders' associations are stronger than we would like to think.

If they are representing then they should follow same rules

Wow! What a great topic.  It only seems to be logical that all people representing others in a sale need to be licensed. To me it would be unethical to not be as well as scary.  We as Realtors take hours upon hours of education requirements and the laws are there for a reason.
