At the present time there are no Exclusive Buyers Agents that I recommend in this state. As a real estate professional I know how important it is to use a fully qualified, full-time real estate agent. I would never recommend any Agent to you that I would not personally use.
As in any profession, there are good people and those who are not as good. I have over 100 EBA's in my database that I do NOT recommend because I would not use their services myself. There are also areas that are not served by any Exclusive Buyers Agent.
In either case, I will find an Agent for you who is fully qualified to assist home buyers. They may or may not be an Exclusive Buyers Agent, but they will be a full-time professional Agent with the specialized training needed to provide you with the level of service that I would want as a home buyer. and who I feel will do an excellent job of assisting you in the purchase of a home.
I never recommend any part-time real estate agents. Buying a home is too important to put your trust into someone who is not even fully committed to their profession.
I have a large database of highly qualified Agents who are not listed on this site because they are not Exclusive Buyers Agents. They (or their agency) may list properties for sale, but they specialize in helping home buyers and all of them are Accredited Buyer Representatives which means they have the specialized training necessary to properly represent buyers.
I will give your information to ONE Agent only, and have that Agent contact you. The Agent will tell you that they were sent by John Rygiol or ExclusiveBuyersAgents.com so that you know I recommended them.
Why should you trust me? I have been an Exclusive Buyers Agent since 1994 and have been referring home buyers to real estate agents on the Internet since 1997. I have more experience with Buyers Agents than just about anyone else on the Internet. I am familiar with almost every Exclusive Buyers Agent in the country and I know how well they do (or don't do) their job. The Agents you find on ExclusiveBuyersAgents.com are the "cream of the crop" gleaned from my years of experience. And I use that same level of experience when interviewing any Agent that I recommend.
Thank you for visiting ExclusiveBuyersAgents.com and giving me the opportunity to be of service to you!

Please note that you are under NO OBLIGATION to use the services of any Agent I recommend. You have the right to use any Real Estate Agent you choose. NEVER sign a representation agreement with any Agent until you are completely satisfied that the Agent is fully qualified to assist you.

How Much Home Should You Buy?
You may have heard a real estate Agent or someone else say, "Always buy the biggest home you can afford. It is a good investment and the larger the investment the larger the return on investment will be".
But is that good advice for you? Maybe, maybe not.
When deciding to buy a home the first thing you need to do is get a loan. Yes, get the loan before you shop for homes. The lender will give you a letter stating how the maximum amount they will lend you given your income, debts, and the amount of cash available for down payment and closing costs.
Now that you know the maximum amount you can borrow and what the monthly payment will be on that amount, ask yourself some questions about your "comfort level". We all have a different comfort level when it comes to debt.
Some things that affect each individuals comfort level are:
Do I worry a little or a lot about money I owe?
Am I comfortable that my job is secure and my income will be stable for the next few years?
Do I reasonably expect to have a considerably larger income in the near future?
Am I willing to change my lifestyle (travel less, eat out less often, keep our car for a few more years) in order to make a house payment?
Think about all of that and then decide what payment you are comfortable with. If it is the maximum amount the lender has stated, fine. But if it is less than that amount, then buy less home.
The new home should be a place of comfort, not a place to sit in and worry about how you are going to pay for it!
Besides, you can always "move up" later if you situation or comfort level changes.
