What is a Listing Agent?

In the Commonwealth of Virginia real estate agents are individuals who are licensed to sell real estate.

  • All real estate agents must work under a real estate broker who manages and oversees the agent’s work.
  • A broker has a greater educational requirement and experience requirement than an agent.

About Agents

There are usually two agents in every transaction:

  • Listing Agent — The listing agents provide representation for the home sellers (and landlords).
  • Selling Agent — A “selling agent” represents the buyer’s (or renter's) interests.

About Listing Agents

  • All licensed agents use the same Multiple Listing Service to market for properties for sale.
  • The listing agent puts best interests of client above interests of all parties—including the agent’s own interests.
  • Client relies on a listing agent to represent him or her and puts confidence and faith in the agent.
  • There is no charge to the buyer for our agent’s services.

Nesbitt Realty's Listing Agents are different because they have immediate access to the principal broker.

In a billion dollar corporate brokerage, the listing agent might never have access to the principal broker.
