I create gmb for friends. Now I go to their offices and use their google accounts to create listings but I see there is GMB for agency? Is it better to open an agency account for me to create and manage all gmb I create for my friends? This way I can create and manage lisiting from my office.

It is up to you. The benefit of having an agency account is managing listings in bulk. If you feel there is quite a few listings you will be managing, then sign up for it. If it's only going to be like 2 or 3 listings, I would suggest doing it the original way.

Looks like I triggered something and they suspended both 2 listing.

Inside the listing there is a message

Suspended
Your listing has been suspended due to quality issues.


What to do?

Should I just delete these 2 and start from scratch or try to verify them? These are real businesses and I am confident one of them is okay. The 2nd one shares business center and I am not sure if they will aprove it or not.
