What are dual deals?

Dual deals, dual agency deals, or double-ended deals refer to when an agent represents both the buyer and the seller in the same transaction.   Or when representing both sides for a Tenant or Landlord (rental) deal types.

  • Update the Commission Disbursement Authorization to have the commission amounts for both deals
  • View the Dual Deal details in the Payouts tab 
  • Easily navigate between Dual Deals 

In this article, we will cover:

Viewing Dual Deals
