Buyer Agency focuses on representing the home buyer in a real estate transaction. Within that agency are buyers agents that only represent buyers and never represent sellers. This type of Exclusive Buyer-Broker agreement ensures that you get an agent with your best interests in mind. This is a critical distinction that separates Exclusive Buyer Agency from the dual agency practice that is common among real estate companies.
