Why all buyers should work with
an Accredited Buyers Rep (ABR)
When you work with our team, we sign a contract to work
for you. With Buyer's Agency, we are not loyal to a
particular seller or company. We find you the home of
your dreams - PERIOD. We understand the market and are
highly skilled advocates and negotiators for you. We
have nearly 30 years of combined experience and are
full time professionals.
Do agents who show me homes represent
unless you have a written agreement with a Buyer's Agent.
Agents who list property have a contract with the sellers
to represent them. All other agents MUST represent the
seller as well, unless you have a written Agency Agreement
with a real estate professional to represent only your
My agent says she "technically"
represents the seller,
but says she will be fair and "take care of me."
Is this true?
Most agents are nice to buyers since they want to make
a sale. If you are not working with a Buyers Agent,
the agent will not tell you if a property is overpriced
or how to negotiate the best price. Since the seller
has professional representation, you should too. We
negotiate only in the best interest of you, the home
If a Buyer's Agent can save me money,
why can't traditional agents?
Agents who represent sellers are obligaed to sell the
property for the highest price, and also inform the
seller if you are willing to pay a higher price. Only
a Buyer's Agent always works in the best interest of
the home buyer.
What is Buyer Agency and how did
it come about?
An FTC study showed that 75% of home buyers mistakenly
believed they were represented by the agent who was
showing them homes. When consumers became aware that
most agents worked for the seller, they demanded representation.
Does a Buyer's Agent have access
to all the resources of other agents?
Absolutely! We can show you all homes listed throughout
Western PA. Since we represent you, we regularly show
homes that are "for sale by owner" and "for
sale by builder".
How do I enter into a Buyer's Agent
relationship, so I am represented?
You establish a relationship with us by signing a buyer's
agency agreement. This agreement was created by the
Association of Realtors and makes us legally accountable
What happens if I want to make an
offer on one of Arlene’s listings?
This is a positive situation for both parties. This
is a relationship where one of our agents, with your
written consent, acts as the agent for both buyer and
seller. Both parties continue to enjoy the benefits
of confidentiality and loyalty. Additionally we have
the duty to continue to find other homes for the buyer
and other buyers for the listing. Since we know both
parties and are expert at negotiating, we can often
find the best terms for both.
