A Buyer’s agent represents the interests of the buyer in a real estate transaction. The Buyer’s agent’s responsibilities to the buyer are: undivided loyalty, obedience, diligence, disclosure, confidentiality, accounting, and reasonable skill and care. All duties are fiduciary — they are owed exclusively to the buyer – NOT to the seller.” – CT Dept. of Consumer Protection

A buyer’s agent can work for a traditional agency which can put you at risk. Traditional agencies take listings and promise to get the top price for the seller. If you don’t work with an exclusive buyer brokerage that Never takes listings, you will likely end up signing a dual agency agreement.

At Buyers Trust Real Estate & Investment our life doesn’t revolve around trying to get paid by both sides. You can’t promise to get the best deal for both sides in a transaction.
