Yes. As a seller you do not have to have two different realtors. You can use one for both. On the flip side, many realtors also like to bring their own buyers to buy your home that they are selling. This can be great, but just make sure all offers are presented to you. Other buyers may have better conditions to buy. Always do what is best for you and hopefully you have a realtor you completely trust. Do not be affraid to ask them questions, and there is a form explaining the role of your agent.

Yes, but I would say that would be a very busy Realtor!

Yes, one agent definitely is able to do both, it is also a good idea to get pre-qualified for a loan on your new property or obtain proof of funds supporting the purchasee price ahead of time. Most offers now have to be submitted along with supporting documents such as the two above and as long as they are current (30days or less) it makes the offer/contract process much more efficient for all parties involved in the transaction (especially on weekends).  Good luck!

YES, and could be the best for you... they know the ins and outs of the sale to your property, and how the two will need to align with eachother on closing and money...

I do many relocations, and it is tricky at best.... I just closed one with 4 differnt homes/ families to close and move... it was a challange, but with knowledge and how to write a contract correctly is can be done...

As others have already answered, Yes, I would still ask if that's what your listing agent handles...  Iy your agent specializes in Listings, they may have a team with a designated Buyers Agent to help you find a home.  
Definitely want someone that is available to work with you when you are available to look at homes.  Good Luck!

Yes, that is part of servicing your client-moving them forward to their next home.

Yes they can. That's not a problem at all.

Yes, an agent can represent a seller that is also looking to purchase a home. The only issue that arises is when a listing agent also represents the buyer of the same property. This is called 'dual agency' and is illegal in some states.

If you have an agent that is representing you for both selling and buying, sometimes they will offer a discounted commission (as they're getting two commissions from one client).
