Beating the Highest Offer

It is not illegal to ask for a copy of the highest offer but it is Unethical and Unfair  for the listing agent to provide the copy of this offer.  We all want to have an advantage with our offers, and it's frustrating to be in a multiple offer situations,  But we must all remember we have all taken the "Code of Ethics" and we MUST all conduct our business in professional and ethical way.   Realtors do not attempt to gain unfair advantage over their competitors.    Be fair and eventually it will work to your customers best interest. 

Read information copied and pasted from the Preamble of the Code of Ethics.

REALTORS® urge exclusive representation of clients; do not attempt to gain any unfair advantage over their competitors; and they refrain from making unsolicited comments about other practitioners. In instances where their opinion is sought, or where REALTORS® believe that comment is necessary, their opinion is offered in an objective, professional manner, uninfluenced by any personal motivation or potential advantage or gain.

The term REALTOR® has come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever can justify departure from this ideal.

In the interpretation of this obligation, REALTORS® can take no safer guide than that which has been handed down through the centuries, embodied in the Golden Rule, “Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them.”

Successful agents are masters at being visible when needed and
 available when called upon
