Nothing is "implied" in Real Estate. It's either in writing and signed or it doesn't exist. That's why I also do not offer advice to people I do not have agency with...because a lawyer may say that "implies" agency.

Tony Trotter I would say ostensible agency is when an agent for example does not formally represent a buyer and by their actions provides a service that can be interpreted as representation. This could be implied as buyer representation without an agreement in writing.

Ah! Sounds like one of those things they cover in licinsing class that you never need to know on the streets!

but giving professional responses to minors could get me in trouble.
The only place I think this may be in effect is in buyer representation where you can get into a procuring cause dispute.
Happens often with buyers agents who dont bother to get a buyers agency signed.
That is a school term, does not exist in the real world.
Agency is the "implied" part in real estate. If a buyer tells you what he can afford, and you send them some listings, the implication to him could be that you are his agent, representing him. Be cautious.
I'm not sure what you mean. In my state the contract is in writing. If an agreement isn't in writing it's not enforceable.
Nothing should, nor is, implied in real estate. It must be in writing.
My motto is to always put in it in writing to avoid any pitfalls or confusion with anything that is implied.
