Hiring A Buyer's Agent


Sheldon Neal was kind enough to spend some time with me to discuss the role of a real estate buyer's agent.  When we meet we recorded a podcast for the Trump University members titled Real Estate Investing With A Buyer's Agent.
Our goal was to help new investors understand the role a buyer's agent plays in the transaction and why they are an important part of any power team.
I learned a few things during our chat that will come in handy the next time I am buying real estate.   I now understand that a buyer's agent:used with permission from Trump University

  • works for me, the buyer or investor
  • negotiates on my behalf and keeps my best interests at heart (not the sellers)
  • does not have the same potential conflict of interest a dual agent might have
  • has local market knowledge on home values and comparables
  • Understands local trends and what other buyers are looking for in a property and their associated costs

Enjoy listening to our podcast and let me know what you think and if you have suggestions for future topics.

Hi C, It's critical to have someone 'in your corner' looking out for your and only your own interests!

Liz, thank you. Looking forward to it. :-)

Marian, very true. I love being a buyer's broker. Running the streets with my clients and kids is fun. The banks with their underwriting quirks certainly know how to keep life very interesting. I especially enjoy working with mortgage brokers. They are very good at what they do and I am learning a lot from them. :-)
