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.

Why A Home Is A Good Investment
As a general rule, homes appreciate about 3 to 5 percent a year. Some years will be more, some less. The figure will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, and region to region.
3 percent may not seem like that much. Other investments such as stocks or treasury bills might offer a higher interest rate.
But take a second look.
Let's look at one example.
If you buy a $200,000 home, and put as much as twenty percent down that would be an investment of $40,000.
At an appreciation rate of 3% annually, a $200,000 home would increase in value $6,000 during the first year. At 5% annually, a $200,000 home would increase in value $10,000 during the first year. That means you earned between $6,000 and $10,000 with an investment of $40,000. Your annual "return on investment" would be somewhere between 15% and 25%. Sounds like a pretty good rate of return doesn't it?
Of course, you will be making mortgage payments and paying property taxes, along with a maintenance costs. However, since the interest on your mortgage and your property taxes are both tax deductible, the government is essentially subsidizing your home purchase.
You have to pay to live somewhere anyway, why not get something in return for that monthly payment?
