When hiring an agent to represent you look for an Exclusive Buyer Agent (EBA)-firms with agents who ONLY represent buyers. However many so-called “buyer-agents” are so conflicted, that it is illegal for them to represent you. If the “buyer agent’s” firm has listings, then the agent is not true buyer agent and the firm will have to abandon your representation if the agent shows you any of their firm’s listings (dual or designated agency).
