Agency Relationships

John A. Jensen Realty Inc. is a real estate brokerage licensed by the Real Estate Council of Ontario ("RECO"). The registration number is 04608998.

Real estate brokerages are governed by the legal concept of "Agency" and are required to describe the various types of agency relationships to all potential buyers and sellers. Potential buyers or sellers are therefore asked to acknowledge that they understand the different types of agency relationships by signing an Agency Relationship Brochure which real estate brokerages are required to keep on file for inspection by RECO.

In order to avoid "Multiple Representation", John A. Jensen Realty Inc. only represents one party to a transaction and provides "Customer Service" to the other party or parties unless such other party is represented by another brokerage.

Prior to each assignment, we will discuss our agency relationship with all potential buyers and sellers and then present each party with the appropriate Representation Agreement for execution.
