Designated Agency

The party selected to represent a principal/client in a designated agency office. Designated agency has been legislatively created in many states, allowing the management of a brokerage to establish an office policy, whereby the managing broker appoints, or designates, a licensee associated with that brokerage to act as the exclusive agent of a principal/client, buyer or seller. No other licensee in the brokerage has an agency relationship to represent that principal/client.
