BENEFITS OF A DFW BUYER AGENT
1. 100% Allegiance.
Buyer Agents have 100% loyalty to the buyer from the onset of the relationship through the closing.
As your DFW Buyer's Agent it is our mission to represent the best interests of the buyer, which means we are focused on you, the buyer, from initial search and evaluation of properties to your closing on your dream home or investment. Buyer Agents, also referred to as Buyer Representatives or Buyer Brokers, are consumer advocates who always represent the best interests of the buyer. As Buyer Agents for Dallas Real Estate, we are on your side 100%, every step of the way.
2. Free and Specialized Service.
Dallas Buyer Agents, who have CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation represent only 3% of all real estate agents nationwide, are true specialists in the buying process, and in Texas, our services is free to buyers.
In the past, all real estate agents represented sellers, and home buyers had to fend for themselves. Today, some real estate agents, have chosen to advocate for buyers also, giving buyers a chance to have their own professional and highly skilled representation.
3. No Conflict of Interest.
Buyer Agents never have a conflict of interest between you and a seller.
When you work with traditional real estate agents, you run the risk that they might also be representing the seller, leading to conflict of interest which most likely won't benefit you, the buyer. Meanwhile, we spend our days focused on the needs, objectives, and issues of buyers.
4. Searches Tailored to You.
Buyer Agents will show you any listing from any seller with complete candor - including REO / bank-owned / foreclosures, and short sales.
While traditional agents might be tempted to steer you toward a specific home or listing that belongs to one of their sellers, we never face that conundrum, and only show you properties that are ideal for you. Since we are constantly reviewing all the real estate listings available (from companies, individuals and organizations), we know the real estate market better than most.
5. Buyer Negotiation.
Buyer Agents, who only represent the buyer's side in real estate transactions, are especially trained and skilled in negotiating the best contract, terms and price for you, the buyer.
As Dallas Buyers Agents, we always work to get the best price and terms for you, the buyer, not for the seller. This may not be true of traditional agents who represent both buyers and sellers.
6. Highest Quality Service.

Dallas Buyer’s Agent FAQ
How much does it cost to hire a buyer’s agent in Dallas?
The secret many buyers don’t know is that hiring me as a buyer’s agent costs you NOTHING (unless it is agreed upon by the buyer and agent in writing) and may save you thousands. My commission usually comes out of the seller’s fees at closing and is typically split with the seller’s realtor. Usually in a “for sale by owner” situation, the seller will pay the buyer’s agent a fee.
How does an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) differ from other buyer’s representatives in Dallas?
An ABR® is a buyer’s representative who has completed advanced training and who has proven experience in serving the special needs of buyer-clients. In addition to knowing the dynamics of their local market, an ABR®-designated buyer’s rep can help you make informed decisions throughout the entire home buying process. An ABR® is also a REALTOR® (a member of NAR) and must abide by a strict Code of Ethics.
What services are provided by a Dallas buyer’s representative or Dallas buyers agent?
If you’ve established an agency relationship with a buyer’s representative, common services include:
Helping you clarify your priorities.
Suggesting sources of financing and other service professionals, such as inspectors and exterminators.
Providing sources of accurate and lawful information about neighborhoods, schools, nuisances, zoning changes, building permits and communities.
Selecting and arranging property showings.
Evaluating particular properties.
Explaining forms and agreements.
Suggesting contract contingencies to protect you, rather than the seller.
Assisting in the negotiations for a favorable price and terms.
Evaluate and advise you regarding inspection reports, repair negotiations, seller disclosures, preliminary title report issues, appraisal issues, homeowners association disclosures, escrow procedures, home warranty, ensuring all aspects of the purchase contract are performed on time as prescribed, etc.
Keeping all information confidential that could weaken your bargaining position.
Monitoring the entire purchase process, assisting with issues that arise through closing.
I can search for houses in Dallas on the web. Why do I need a Dallas buyer’s agent to help me find one to buy?
As a licensed agent, I rely on the centralized North Texas Multiple Listing Service (MLS) - NTREIS database to give you the most up-to-date information. Many real estate websites are updated every 24 hours and a property may already be off the market by the time you see the listing. You’re always welcome to send me any listings you find on your own and I can check their status before you get your hopes set on them.
Why do I need my own Dallas Buyer’s agent as a home buyer in Dallas?
While any real estate agent can facilitate a sale by arranging property showings, assisting with securing financing, explaining real estate forms and contracts, and monitoring the sale process, only a buyer’s agent is truly subjective and working for you.
I try to point out reasons not to buy a particular property and negotiate the best price and terms for you, adding contingencies in sales contracts that protect you and keeping confidential any information that could hurt your bargaining position.
Can an Exclusive Buyer Agent tell me if I am paying the right price for a home in Dallas?
A. Your Exclusive Buyer Agent can research previous sales to determine the value of a particular home in a given neighborhood in Dallas-Fort Worth, or any of the many other areas we serve. Completing a competitive market analysis will help determine the price you should pay.
Can I avoid real estate commissions altogether and buy directly from a seller in Dallas and not hire a Dallas Buyer’s Agent?
Yes, this is an option that some buyers explore. However, it’s important to understand that nothing is truly free and this approach still carries a price. Unrepresented sellers (for-sale-by-owner properties) frequently lack adequate information about how to price their home or attempt to inflate the price in lieu of paying a real estate commission.
As an unrepresented buyer, it will be much harder for you to know if you’re overpaying or how to read the seller’s disclosure provided by every seller in Texas. Real estate professionals have developed keen pricing insights that go well beyond simply evaluating data through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). And if you are overpaying, it will create further complications in securing financing.
For these, and many other reasons, a high majority of consumer-to-consumer housing transactions never reach closing. Real estate professionals play a valuable role in keeping your home-purchase on track, starting with selecting and touring properties and continuing through negotiations, inspections, financing, and closing. This is especially true in today’s market, where alternative buying opportunities, including short sales, have added even more complexity to some real estate transactions.
How will you save me money as my Dallas buyer’s agent?
We save you money in several different ways:
By negotiating a lower sales price
By negotiating necessary repairs pursuant to property inspections
By negotiating personal property into the sales price
By helping you find the lowest mortgage costs and/or negotiating the seller into paying closing costs
By obtaining home warranties and other extras within the final sales price
By listening carefully so we don’t miss any details from you or the seller
I’m interested in buying new construction homes in Dallas and the developers all say I can work directly with them and do not need a Dallas Buyer’s agent.
You certainly can, but if you ever needed an agent it is when you are buying from a ‘professional seller’ such as a builder. My job is to protect your interests, point out the pros and cons of what the builder is offering, such as, Is the premium they are charging you for the corner lot really going to make sense when you go to resell? I can help you save thousands in the long run no matter what you’re buying by helping you buy smart and the price of the home remains the same.
Can the seller's agent represent me instead of a Dallas Buyer’s Agent?
Although possibly helpful in other areas of the home-buying process, a seller's agent cannot be your advocate or counsel you about a property's value or negotiation strategy because he or she works for the seller. In addition, if you work with a seller's agent he or she must disclose to the seller anything he or she knows about you or your circumstances that would give the seller a competitive advantage or affect their decision making.
The only way to insure absolute loyalty is to work with your own exclusive buyer agent.
If I decide to purchase a for sale by owner (FSBO) home, will you still represent me as a Dallas buyer’s agent?
Yes. We will assist you in purchasing a home that is for sale by owner. Contact us for more information.
Will there be a charge for the real estate services, if I decide to purchase a home from a for sale by owner (FSBO) in Dallas?
It depends. In many cases individuals selling their homes without a broker will offer a commission to buyer agents (brokers) for bringing a buyer to them. Most FSBO homes for sale are listed on the MLS. In the event that an owner will not offer a commission to a buyer agent, it is your choice whether you want to continue working with us and pay a buyer agent commission or whether you want to represent yourself. If you choose to represent yourself, you will not owe us any money.
Can you refer me to a home inspector in Dallas if I hire you as my Dallas buyers agent?
Yes, we can provide a list of competent home inspectors we recommend, and we also will provide you with a complete list of Texas licensed home inspectors. The information is typically included in the home inspection information we provide to our clients after an offer is accepted, but we are happy to share it at anytime.
Can you refer me to a mortgage broker/advisor when you represent me as Dallas Buyer’s Agent?
Yes, we can suggest a number of reputable mortgage professionals who can pre-approve you for a home loan for free.
How are you different from other agents who call themselves buyer’s agents in Dallas?
A buyer’s agent is the purest form of representation available to a buyer.
I will show you all possible homes on the market, ranging from those represented by other agencies to “for sale by owner” properties (if the owner allows us to show their property). If I don’t know the answer to a question I will try my best to secure one.
My goal is to try to help you fairly assess all available homes that fit your criteria and negotiate a fair price.
What are your standard terms and conditions for working as a buyer’s agent?
I am happy to send you a Buyer’s Agency form to review at your request and answer any questions you may have.
Is there a difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR?
Yes, a REALTOR is a real estate agent who holds membership in the national, state, and local real estate boards. A REALTOR is held to a higher standard of ethics and a strict code of conduct. You can read the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS here. All of the real estate agents at Adams Real Estate are REALTORS, and are involved in as many as 20 steps to complete a real estate transaction. Additionally, our agents will help you with pricing strategies and negotiation skills—helping you get the most out of your money. We know the most current local market conditions and will work with you to make sure you have the tools you need to make a confident purchasing decision.
