What is a buyer’s agent?

In a real estate there is typically at least one buyer and one seller.

In most transactions each has their own representation. Representing both is legal in California and their are transactions where this dual agency makes sense however in the majority of real estate purchases having an agent who represents only your interests helps you insure your needs are met.

A buyer’s agent works with buyers to get them pre-approved for a loan, schedule property tours (so buyer’s don’t have to wait for open houses), write and submit offers and help navigate the escrow process.

Looking for an agent to represent you in your housing search? I would be happy to help you.
