Fairness is not representation.
Fairness means I'm not going to cheat you;
representation means I'm going to take care of you. ~James Warkentin
We welcome and encourage referrals from real estate attorneys and accountants. Homebuyers often need legal and financial advice as well as representation and assistance in their home purchase. The process is not complicated and with honest competent representation a home purchase should be both personally and financially rewarding.

This is reinforced by an article in Kipplinger and at NAEBA.org Of course, any licensed agent can be a buyer's agent , but few can guarantee to maintain that relationship throughout your home search. Look at the buyer agent contract they offer. Almost all will ask you to permit them to work as a "dual agent" (ie represent the seller as well) if they get the opportunity. That is good for them- but not for you. I GUARANTEE-in writing- that I will ONLY work FOR you as YOUR agent - never as a dual agent.
I am a full time buyer's agent . If you are not sure that "your agent" is a full time buyer's agent just ask if their office lists homes for sale. If they do, the agent is not a full time buyer's agent and may actually be working for the seller instead of for you. Full time buyer's agents are professional, knowledgeable, experienced, committed and well - full time.
When choosing an agent you must also compare the companies and the policies those agents must follow.
As an agent representing home buyers I try to look deeper than the surface. One goal is to avoid home inspection surprises. Although I'm not a home inspector I still look for problems that may come up. A few of the things I look for are:
The more you know about the house before you make an offer the better and the fewer surprises you have when it comes to your home inspection the better.
We can help you get preapproved for financing if you need it. When you choose a lender you should look for experience and knowledge and good rates.
PCS? Thinking about buying a home in the area? I've helped military personnel with home purchases within commuting distance of the base, since 1998. I live in Medford Lakes - which is also within commuting distance of the base.
