When pressed about the potential for conflicts-of-interest, most full service real estate brokers will claim that a “Chinese Wall” exists within their company.  Are they kidding?  This magical and invisible thing is said to separate the tenant side of their company from the landlord side.  Supposedly, data, information, documents, discussions, strategy, details on transaction terms, people, and everything else that might possibly pose a conflict of interest is maintained separately, with no access provided to the other departments within a brokerage company.   Really?
