By creating an account and moving forward with listing your home for sale, or submitting an offer on a home, you acknowledge Noodigs as your real estate agent. We assure the highest level of integrity and ethics and would never lock you into a relationship long-term. Your use of our service is transactional – meaning our relationship ends when the transaction closes, either through sale or cancellation. If you buy or sell a home without the assistance of Noodigs, no agency relationship exists.
Here’s all the stuff our lawyers require us to say:
- You are entering into a lawful consumer-broker relationship with Noodigs as defined by applicable state law. You have no obligation to work with Noodigs and you can terminate your account with Noodigs any time. Any information you obtain from the Noodigs website is intended for your personal, non-commercial use.

12. Limitation of Liability
13. Dispute Resolution
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the Sites, to the goods or services provided by Noodigs, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Noodigs is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in Wilmington, Delaware. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules or from a list of arbitrators provided by Noodigs. Filing and other non-award costs will be paid for, in equal shares, by both parties except that the fee to the arbitrator will be paid by the non-prevailing party. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand. Should any State or Federal law conflict with the above rules for resolving disputes or the AAA rules, such conflicting rules shall be severed from the enforceable rules and the enforceable rules shall survive and control the dispute resolution process. Any gaps left in the process due to severed rules shall be resolved at the discretion of the selected arbitrator. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Wilmington, Delaware. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this agreement with arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.
Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Noodigs, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Wilmington, DE. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.
14. Additional Legal Terms
A.
