Minnette Olsen - they fill in the blanks of legal contracts.
They should not act as attorneys for sure.

Fill in the blanks, come up with the dates that will work.
Minnette Olsen The role is to properly fill in the blanks of the contract. Check your State law about who can write up a real estate contract.
Depends on the state where you live. In Virginia, we fill in blanks. In states like NY, attorneys write them up.
In our market, agents complete contracts.
In Washington we use prepared forms, but we are held to the same standard as an attorney. We must know what each form is intended for, apply it properly and if we ammend or add anything, it must be done right.
In my state we fill in the blanks with the appropriate information. Your state may be different so check with your instructor.
It depends on the state/jurisdiction. Here we fill in the blanks with discussion with our clients about their wishes (terms and conditions, dates, etc.)
Without an agent or broker, there will be no contract.
I fill in the blanks on a contract. I go over it with my buyers or sellers and tell them to talk with an attorney if they have any questions or concerns.
Check your state laws..we fill in the contracts and explain to our clients.
Depends on state laws.
Check Utah law for specific rules & guidelines

They are the ones that write them up here in Florida.
It would depend on the particular jurisdiction. It may also depend upon the particular agreement that the agent has with the party or parties the agent is working with.
**##&$#&* Those don't bring your question to the top.
Assuming you learn enough to pass the test from this "school", you'll be filling in the blanks.
We are the ones who I'll in the blanks
We are authorized to fill in spaces not write contracts.
Our contracts are prewritten by our state association legal counsel and all we have to do is fill in the banks and check boxes that apply. I do advise the client to read it carefully before signing.
In the Metro area of NYC we hardly ever even see the contract.
Fill in the blanks adn give a general explanation. If they question something on a deeper level suggest they consult a rqal estate attorney!
They are the brokers agent, hired by the broker to fill out forms, and for many agents this is as far as they ever get.
Fill in the blanks... based on the terms being offered.
we prepare our own purchase and sales but ALL OF OUR SELLERS have an attorney....we send them our agreement and they usually add an addendum....on occasion, we will have an attorney that we've never worked with before do his own agreement.... it doesn't matter to us.... he takes all of the information from the offer to purchase and from our purchase and sales agreement....
Good luck with your studies.
I am adding to this question. I am reviewing the answers to this question so I don't have to ask everyone again. I know many have stated that they just fill in the blanks but what about addendums? Isn't this where agents are actively engaged in writing details that go into the contract?
Understanding, teaching and filling in the blanks.
IN AZ we prepare, present and execute real estate contracts
