I have been reading every book, web site and other materials that I can get my hands on for months. For some reason, the answers to these questions still evade me. My main interest is pure brokering at this point.

  1. Is there a contract whereby the seller agrees that I, the broker, am allowed to offer their note for sale to the buyer?

  2. What exactly prevents the buyer from circumventing me, the broker, and going directly to the seller for their note (i.e., do I have a contract with the buyer as well)?

  3. I gather that the broker’s spread is paid by the funds provided by the buyer at closing? But what document is it that says “the difference should be sent to the broker”?

Please let me know if you have any suggested reading that goes into these details of brokering in depth.
