I typically refer them out to another agent. I don't like doing dual agency - not because they are first timers either.

I usually refer buyers of my listings to other agents. However, if they insist on working with me then yes, I'm very comfortable. Whether they are first time home buyers or not.

Like Debe Maxwell, CRS - my business model is to refer agents on my listings. I also agree with Eve of Mike & Eve Alexander - it feels like a conflict of interest to me.

All agents get comfortable pretty quick when it comes to getting double the commission.

I don't care how ethical someone claims to be, having the buyer and seller in the same transaction is not ideal for either party.  

It is called "conflict of interest"...even if there is nothing dishonest going on.

I do, provided that they have a clear understanding of Agency. Acknowledge both verbally and in writing that they are not represented in the transaction and it's best for my seller. 

I enjoy first time buyers and they are a series of potential future transactions if handled properly.
