WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK.
When you’re buying in Texas, you can choose a real estate professional to represent you and put your interest first. This includes being your advocate, showing property, giving you advice and opinion, negotiating on your behalf, handling all the details, and keeping you informed. This is Buyer Representation – and it’s a lot!
Take Advantage of Buyer Representation
When you understand this concept, it will save you time, money, and frustration.
Buyer representation allows us, as your real estate broker, to put your interest first, above all others.
Remember, if there’s a real estate sign in the yard, that company and agent are already under contract with the seller to put their interest first, ahead of the buyer’s interest.
WHO REPRESENTS YOU?
You must know who the real estate broker represents! A broker must represent someone. If not the buyer, they represent the seller.
If there is a “for sale” sign in the yard, that (listing broker) has agreed to represent the seller. Therefore, they must put the sellers’ interest first, ahead of the buyer’s interest.
Buyer Representation is a common practice in Texas. As a buyer, it is to your benefit to find a REALTOR® you are comfortable with and trust. You can ask him/her to represent you in the transaction. Do not “assume” Buyer Representation. A simple Buyer Rep Agreement clearly outlines the terms and responsibilities of all parties.
Once hired for the job, a REALTOR® can provide you with information to help you make your decisions. This includes information about current market conditions, financing options, and negotiating issues. Remember, market conditions can change! Strategies that apply in one negotiation may be inappropriate in another.

People are talking...here's what they say.
“Norma helped us with our first home and we could not have done it without her! She was great and made the process seem easier than it really was.”

“Tammy literally did the impossible. She worked me into her schedule (with little to no notice) and was one of the nicest people I have met. In what was record time, I had signed a lease and received the keys to the townhouse my son and I will be living in. None of this would have happened if it…”
