Kathleen Garvey is 100% right.  There's really no way way to "hire" multiple agents. Hire a professional seller's agent to not only market your home, but to take you through the transaction legally, to protect your rights, and ultimately, protect YOU against fraud.

Your best bet is to choose ONE really great Realtor who will be able to list, market & present your property listing to it's best potential.  

Sellers gain their edge by hiring one Realtor who knows the advantages in negotiations and will also protect your rights during the selling process. 

Buyers will have their own Buyers agent who represent their interests in the buying process. 

So in essence, you only need one good Realtor to represent you + list/market the property AND you will then automatically provide an open door to thousands of Buyers agents (with qualified Buyers) who will be working to sell your property too.  

The KEY to selling your property at it's top potential begins with hiring ONE great professional Realtor.

As others have mentioned, you have many options available.  Any Realtor you meet with should discuss all the available listing options and brokerage options.  At times it may be beneficial to have more than one agent working on your behalf, but generally speaking, one agent, or a team is more than sufficient.  More important is connecting with an agent that will work hard for you and help you achieve your goal when selling your home.

Let me know if you have any questions.

If you sign a listing agreement, it can be with more than one agent, however it is entered in the MLS using one number.

Typically a listing contract (exclusive right to sell) would be for one Realtor, However... Some Realtors (like me) do have teams in which you would have 2 or more agents working for you as a team. Im sure their are pluses and minus to this approach... When 2 agents work together (maybe a husband & wife) you may have more availability for things like open houses or accompanied showings, etc. (If one is not available then hopefully the other is).... Kind of a two for the price of one approach. When you are dealing with one agent ONLY you may have better communication/understanding because your speaking with one person always.

When 1 lists it you then will have hundreds to thousands of Realtors that can bring buyers to it and sell it. Just 1 does it all.

No. All you need is one agent to list and market your home.
