Avoid the Dual Agent's Split Loyalties


Non-exclusive real estate agents representing both the buyer and the seller in the same transaction are practicing dual agency, which is nothing short of frightening. Whether it’s single broker representation (two agents under same broker represent buyer and seller) or single agent dual agency representation (when one person represents both the buyer and seller), the truth of the matter is that one entity gets both commissions and provides limited service.

In Arizona, disclosed dual agency is a practice allowed by law, but it’s far from safe. Keeping all of the commission is only the beginning with a non-exclusive agent. A buyer’s rights and best interests are in jeopardy of being stepped on by the listing agent on their way to the bank. Exclusivity is what differentiates an Exclusive Buyer Broker and underscores Exclusive Arizona Buyers Agents’ commitment to you, the buyer, exclusively. You have the clear advantage of a buyer broker specializing in Arizona luxury homes. Nonexclusive buyer’s agents simply don’t guarantee exclusivity if they are working for a brokerage that includes both buyer agents and listing agents under one umbrella. Arizona Buyers Agents never take listings and never represent sellers.

With this exclusivity comes the expertise to secure your best interests as a buyer. Arizona Buyers Agents is the preferred choice for both out-of-state and local residents seeking both gated and non-gated residences. Our understanding of the unique aspects of the Arizona lifestyle and homebuyers’ distinctive tastes and preferences leverages for you premium service, protection and results to ensure a superior Arizona luxury real estate home buying experience.

“Consider an exclusive buyer-broker who will represent only you, not the sellers. Nonexclusive real-estate agents tend to show you their own listings first, since they won’t have to share the commission if they represent both the buyer and the seller.”
