About Buyer Brokering

There are choices of Agency Relationships that your broker will discuss and explain to you. Together, you will chose one of three relationships as explained in the New York Disclosure Form for Buyers and Sellers. As a full service agency, we can represent you as buyers Agent and work for you.The Seller often offers compensation to a Buyer Agent.

A Buyer's agent can give you an overall opinion on properties. A Buyer's agent is legally bound to work on your behalf concerning price & terms, and will use all their negotiating skills as your representative and is generally compensated by the seller.

Now, does Buyer Agency Representation make sense? If you need help with the decision please Email or Phone Claudette.
