I am a licensed...

I am a licensed realtor in Palm Beach County and hang my license there. I bought a property in Lake County, Florida and would like to sell it. My question - is it ethical to list my Lake County property with a realtor in Lake County or must I list with my office in Palm Beach County?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No. I have not done any paper work as yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a FL lawyer about this?

No. I have not.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No. That's it.

Good morning. There is no ethical issue with listhing your home in another county with a realtor located in that county. Unless you signed some specific contractual agreement with your Palm Beach County office, you would not be legally requred to list your house with your Palm Beach office and there would be absolutely no impediment to you engaging a realtor with another company to list your property in Lake County...i.e, no legal nor ethical concerns with that at all.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
