YOU are important to us!
In fact, I started Buyer'$ Agent-USA® to help people just like you.
Back in 1988 I, too, was a home buyer. My agent's "help" almost cost me $5,000. But I was lucky. I found out in time and, being a lawyer, I forced the seller to renegotiate down to a lower price. Many others aren't so lucky.
In fact for decades the entire industry has been biased against home buyers. Traditionally all agents in all companies have worked only for sellers, never for you as the home buyer. That's why I started Buyer’$ Agent-USA®, to protect people like you when you are buying a home.
Ordinary real estate sales companies are now trying to copy our idea. But as long as they also work for sellers they have a conflict of interest in trying to represent your interests too as a buyer. They can't offer you the 100% honesty and loyalty that a true, professional Buyer's Agent can.
At Buyer'$ Agent-USA® we refuse to compromise our loyalty to you. We refuse to work under a conflict of interest. That's why we only work with and for home buyers. That's the only way we (or anyone) can focus solely on what's best for you.
I hope you find this Guide informative. If there is anything more my company can do for you please let me know. You really are important to us!

|"Buyer'$ Agent-USA helped us save over $12,174 on a FSBO"|
had tried using traditional realtors and didn't like it. Agents seemed to
push their company's listings and we felt that there were homes they
weren't showing us. We wanted an agent on our side and found John
Toner of Buyer'$ Agent-USA.
John interviewed us carefully to determine our needs and price range. He then made sure that we saw ALL available homes, both those listed with other realtors and homes for-sale-by- owner. We fell in love with a for-sale-by owner home, but didn't think we could afford it.
Working on our behalf, John was able to get the seller to drop his price $7,000. John also got the seller to pay the maximum allowable amount of our closing costs. He helped us find a loan with no discount points, too.
We are thrilled with our home and believe that Buyer'$ Agent-USA was key in helping us get it. We could not be more pleased with Buyer'$ Agent-USA. If you are thinking of buying a home, we highly recommend that you call them first.

|"Free no-obligation interview -- practical information and honest answers"|
first time home buyers we wanted information and honest advice, not sales
talk. We called Buyer'$ Agent-USA for a free Home Buyer
Consultation. Our agent gave us confidence by reviewing and
understanding exactly what we wanted in a home. He patiently explained the
steps of the buying process, financing options, and what to look out for.
After the interview we chose Buyer'$ Agent-USA to help us buy a home. It was very important to us to get service that was solely dedicated to our interests (the buyer). We were not hurried, directed to homes where they "represented a seller" or pushed to more expensive homes. They were loyal, protecting us every step of the way. We are thrilled with the home that they helped us buy -- it was beyond our expectations and within our budget!
If you are thinking of buying a home, we recommend that you call Buyer'$ Agent-USA for a no obligations Home Buyer Consultation. They will give you helpful information, explain your options, and then leave the decisions up to you.
Bob & Connie Passman
|"Stopped me from buying a home with a defective roof"|
was my agent from Buyer'$ Agent-USA and he helped me get a
great price on a stunning town home. But to be sure I was getting a good
deal, Allen also arranged for a professional home inspection.
The seller said, no, the home had already passed an earlier inspection (arranged and paid for by the seller). Allen insisted on bringing in our inspector. I'm glad he did. Our inspector found decayed FRT plywood in the roof and failed it.
As a result, Allen negotiated with the seller to pay the entire cost of replacing the roof. Allen had the inspector recheck the roof after repairs to be sure that they were done right.
Without aggressive representation by Buyer'$ Agent-USA I could easily have bought a home with a bad roof and not even known it. I urge you to call them if you are thinking of buying a home.
|"We wouldn't feel safe buying with anyone else"|
Agent-USA helped us find a nice home at a great price. Then
came the professional home inspection. Their inspector was thorough, and
his thoroughness paid off. He found that the furnace was leaking
gasses into the home, and he found a flawed electric outlet that had
literally burned up. Both items were major fire hazards.
Armed with this information, Buyer'$ Agent-USA negotiated over $3,000 worth of repairs to the home, including a brand new gas furnace and the rewiring of all electric outlets in the home.
We later learned that the gas company had inspected the furnace a week earlier (the seller had smelled gas) and the gas company found nothing wrong. Our inspector was more thorough than the gas company itself!
We wouldn't feel safe buying with anyone else offering less protection and we urge you to call Buyer'$ Agent-USA.
