Since 1995

The Country’s Only Flat-Fee Exclusive Buyer’s Agency

It’s our job to help you find, buy and finance the home of your choice at the lowest possible price and with the best terms. From flat-fee, to full service, to a la carte—we can provide you with the services you need. No monkey business.

Serving home buyers in Dallas and Houston and borrowers across the state of Texas.

Wholesale interest rates plus our flat-fee commission saves you thousands!

Our Promise. Our Duty.

We Put You First.

Always. All Ways.

      • HelpUBuy America’s agents have a legal obligation to act solely in your best interest. It’s called a fiduciary duty. When you buy a home or take a loan through us, we accept the responsibility to act in your best interest at ALL times. 


flat- fee Exclusive Buyer's Agents

In a landscape where the home buyer is at a disadvantage by default, we’re here to go to bat for you. Our agents represent you, the buyer. We never act as a dual agent or an intermediary, which means there will never be a conflict of interest that might jeopardize your negotiating position. We fight to get you the lowest sales price and best terms while minimizing your risk.


We shop over 80 lenders to get you the best possible wholesale rate and lowest closing costs. As your fiduciary, we feel it is in your best interest that we charge a low, flat-fee for mortgage services rather than take a percentage like other lenders. Since our commission is fixed, we have no incentive to sell you a higher-priced loan.

it’s our job

We protect you from bad lenders, agents, inspectors and sometimes from yourself.

Buyer's Agents

Our job is to help you avoid costly mistakes when you buy a home. That means we will make sure your lender, title company, inspector, and appraiser treat you fairly. We’ll help you pick a floor plan that not only works for your family but will also appeal to the largest pool of buyers when it’s time to sell. If we think you’re heading down the wrong path we’ll say so. We’ll point out the positives and negatives of each home to help you make an informed decision, and we’ll help you formulate a negotiating strategy. We won’t try to sell you a higher priced home to pad our commission, and we’ll help you find the most cost-effective and suitable loan for your individual circumstances. You simply will not find a real estate agency more committed to home buyers and borrowers than us. 

Buy your way

As your fiduciary, we have only your best interest in mind and will work the way that best works for you. If you’re a buyer that doesn’t need to tour many homes, our flat-fee program allows you to receive a rebate at closing to use toward your closing costs, moving expenses, furniture…whatever you need! On the other hand, first-timers and buyers who need more time and attention often prefer our all-inclusive full service program. Use our expert home buying services, our mortgage services, or both! Whichever program you use, you’ll receive the highest quality buyer representation available – anywhere!

No restrictive contract

Unlike most real estate agencies, we don’t need to threaten our buyers to remain loyal to us. That’s why we don’t ask you to sign a lengthy, restrictive, long-term Buyer’s Representation Agreement. In fact, our agreement reads more like a disclosure. Our clients stay with us because we are great at our job! We know construction and can spot defects in a property before you waste money on a home inspection. We are expert negotiators and provide an unmatched level of service. Threatening to sue a buyer if they don’t use us to buy a house is not the way we do business. If you don’t like us, you can walk away without obligation or fear of retribution. If we don’t like you, we’ll cut you loose rather than neglect you and hope you go away on your own. HelpUBuy America is all about honesty, integrity, and competence.

one-on-one dedicated service

Working with us means you get your very own dedicated agent, not a member of an inefficient, error-prone real estate team. Your file won’t be passed on to an admin or long distance transaction coordinator who is neither licensed nor knowledgeable about Texas real estate. Instead, your EBA will be your point of contact from start to finish. No admins. No undertrained agents. No opportunity for things to fall through the cracks.

Bonuses and incentives

It’s common for sellers, builders, home warranty companies, and others to offer buyer’s agents enormous bonuses as an added incentive to sell their property or to sign up for their service. That’s good for the agent but horrible for the buyer. HelpUBuy America agents don’t accept bonuses or sales incentives, not even a coffee mug. We work for no more & no less than 3% of the sales price (full service) or our stated flat-fee. All sales incentives are passed along to our clients. You will never have to worry about us steering you into a home for our financial gain.

your agent for life

We don’t go away after closing. We’ll be here to help you protest your taxes, file your homestead, eliminate mortgage insurance, refinance, and repair/update your home. And when it’s time to sell, we’ll be here to help. While we don’t represent sellers in the traditional sense, we’ll be happy to give you a free MLS listing and help you through the sales process or refer you to a great listing agent. We’re here for you. Forever.


It’s the same work to process a $400,000 loan as one for $900,000. So why pay thousands extra in lender commissions? While most lenders build in a 2-3% commission into the price of your loan, we keep it simple and cheap. We start with the lowest wholesale interest rate for which you qualify. Then, we add our low flat fee and a lender’s admin fee, paid by you or the lender. That’s it! There’s no bait-and-switch pricing or fine print. We earn a reasonable commission, and you save thousands of dollars upfront and tens of thousands over the life of your loan.

certified pre-approval letters

Your loan application will be submitted to underwriting and fully approved to make you outshine other buyers in a competitive market. Your loan can close more quickly and sellers will have more confidence in you as a qualified buyer. And, best of all, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your purchase is less likely fall apart at the last minute!

Pre-Qualifications with No Credit Check

Want to get the ball rolling without dining your credit? We can do that! Once you complete your application, we can do a free “soft” credit check to see where you stand. Doing so will enable us to tell you how much home you can afford and how to improve your qualifications (if necessary) to qualify for the lowest possible wholesale rate. Then, when the time is right, we’ll move forward with the tri-pull credit report, which all lenders require to process your loan.

we're with you from start to finish

We’re on it from the time you submit your loan application through funding. No massive call centers with unskilled customer reps who know very little about your loan or transaction. Just us and a licensed, dedicated loan processor, monitoring every step and watching every penny.


5-Star Reviews

HelpUBuy America has a stellar reputation with the Better Business Bureau, the Texas Real Estate Commission, the National Association of Realtors, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, and Consumer Advocates in American Real Estate.

"One step ahead of anything that could come up..."

“We have purchased (3) homes in the past couple of years with Alysse Musgrave, and she has worked with our daughter before that. She is dedicated from beginning to end making sure you are purchasing the right property for you, one step ahead of anything that could come up, knew every location we inquired about, and left you with the complete feeling that she really cared about us and the properties we were getting. We would highly recommend her to anyone.” – Paul & Tina Lorenz in Frisco

"Like having a (very!) honest friend walk through houses with me..."

“Working with Alysse was such a great experience! She truly has the buyer’s best interest in mind. As a first time buyer, she encouraged me to go with the least expensive house we looked at ($50k under budget!) because of its value, resale potential and flexible floorplan that could easily accommodate the “what ifs”. She was so much fun to work with, like having a (very!) honest friend walk through houses with me. I’d highly recommend her to anyone in the DFW area!” – Dr. Amy Mohr, Fort Worth

"Professionally guided us through the whole home buying process"

“Alysse is an excellent independent, exclusive buyers’ agent. Because she works with buyers only, she puts your interests first and is very transparent at every step of the process. She very professionally guided us through the whole home buying process as first-time buyers. We were very impressed by her negotiation skills, promptness in response and knowledge of the local housing market – we highly recommended her to anyone buying a home in the DFW metroplex.” – Christoffer Koch, Dallas

"He has solid experience and knowledge in the industry..."

“Ramzey did a great job with the whole process from beginning to end, he helped me find and also negotiated for the house that I wanted. He has a solid experience and knowledge in the industry and is a great asset to the buyer.” – Raja Khazen, Houston

"Patiently stuck with us and got us over the finish line..."

“It was amazing to have a buyer’s agent in this market. She helped us navigate the market volatility, coached us on writing winning offers and helped us find our dream house, when I didn’t think it was possible in this market. Took us a while to find it, but she patiently stuck with us and got us over the finish line. So great to know she had our back in this crazy market” – Andrew Smith, McKinney

We learned so much from her and her eye for detail is incredible.

Alysse helped us purchase a house in a very competitive Coppell market after we hired as as Exclusive Buyer’s Agent (EBA). Her local expertise was very helpful and her dispassionate opinions about the properties we were seeing helped us make an informed decision. After showing houses, she follows up with a detailed email on pros and cons. We learned so much from her and her eye for detail is incredible. Most importantly, we always felt she was batting for us and was always in our corner. I would recommend Alysse to everyone and encourage potential buyers to look into EBA. – Mohib, Coppell

The Importance of Exclusive

Buyer’s Agency

The concept of an exclusive Buyer Agency is endorsed by all the consumer good guys like Ralph Nader, Jean Chatzky, and Suze Orman. Even the Department of Justice recommends that buyers hire an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent rather than a traditional agent. Choose to work with those who will work with your best interest in mind.
