What experts say about using a
buyer's broker...

Normally, real estate agents are legally bound to work on behalf of the seller to land the highest price. But you can choose instead to work with an agent accredited to represent the buyer; in this case the legal obligation is reversed and the broker is compelled to use her understanding of the seller and the property to extract the lower price on your behalf."
Money magazine January, 2009

"Buyer-brokers have emerged as an alternative to an agent representing a seller." "Look for buyer-brokers who have an Accredited Buyer's Representative designation."
...Investors Business Daily

" If you're about to start shopping for a house, be sure you know whether your agent is really working for you or the seller."
...Consumer Reports

"Buyer brokers: agents that buyers can call their own."
"Buyers no longer have to fend for themselves.".
...U.S. News & World Report

"Agents: How to hire one for your side."

be able to secure a better price and better terms."

be assured an agent will be on your side."
