    We went to 5 open houses yesterday.
    One agent gave us a brochure about real estate agents and talked about it. She wanted me to sign it.
    None of the others did. A couple asked us if we are working with a buyer agent.

    The agent says that it is not a contract, but we just met her.
    Is this standard practice?

    Was this the brochure? It can come in various forms, but the message is the same.
    https://www.ncrec.gov/Brochures/WorkingwAgents.pdf

    If so, that one agent did the right thing, Smokey.
    It's the law.
    And, that brochure is not a contract. All you were being asked is a receipt indicating that the agent provided the brochure and discussed it with you.
    Too many agents skip over offering the brochure and having a conversation about agent responsibilities to consumers.

    We talked to 4 agents and only two discussed agency.

    I asked an agent about it, and she said something about not bothering with a lot of paperwork.

    If she wouldn't do that paperwork, can she write a good contract?
    I wonder.
