are three different Brokerage Relationships:
· SINGLE AGENT RELATIONSHIP
· TRANSACTION BROKER RELATIONSHIP
· NO BROKERAGE RELATIONSHIP
For Detailed explanations of Relationships, please visit:
As such, the MLS specifies the Compensation offered to the Cooperating (Buyer’s) Agent
functioning under each Broker
· COBA: Compensation Offered to Buyer's Agent (Referring to a
cooperating Broker under a SINGLE AGENT RELATIONSHIP)
· COTB: Compensation Offered to Transaction Broker (Referring to a cooperating Broker
under a TRANSACTION BROKER RELATIONSHIP)
· CONR: Compensation Offered to Non-Representative (Referring to a cooperating Broker
