c. The listing salesperson’s fiduciary duties are delegated to the brokerage by the salesperson.

d. The listing brokerage makes an offer of a sub agency to other brokerages 

Answer:

“B” Courts have already said that this is not the case.

“C” No, the Brokerage is the “legal agent” of the Seller.

“D” yes, this is possible, but rather rare.
