Don’t be fooled by real estate agents who claim to be Little Elm buyer’s agents but work for dual agency brokers like Keller or Re/Max. Only an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent works for buyers 100% of the time so there is NO conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position.

In a real estate transaction, the buyer assumes all of the risk. The seller walks away from the property, usually with some money in their pocket.
