What is a Buyers Agent?

A buyers agent is your advocate. While assisting you through the home buying process, we are here to protect your interest. We provide advice and counsel from which mortgage lender to use to how to best negotiate the offer to purchase.

Our relationship to the homebuyer is indispensable. We focus on the big picture so that you don’t have too. Additionally we help you navigate the perils and pitfalls that can come when buying a home.

Due to real estate practices in the 1920 and 30’s, Realtors were forced to adopt standards or ethics coupled with annual mandatory training.  As a members of the local board of realtors, all realtor members must undergo Continuous Education Training.  We are highly trained Southeast Louisiana buyer and listing agents.

A real estate agent can be licensed through the state of Louisiana and not be a member of the local Board of Realtors.

Who Pays the Buyers Agent?

Did you know that the Seller is responsible for paying the buying agent when their home is listed with a real estate agent?  I have found through many years of selling real estate, that this is still not widely knows. For this reason, I have found that new buyers are reluctant to enlist assistance from real estate agents.

Types of Buyers Agency

As a buyer, you have options as to the relationship you desire.  In meeting with proposed buyer’s agent, you should be made aware of their position before discussing any of your financial or personal details.

The highest form of Agency is an Exclusive Buyers Agency.  This relationship is formed and agreed upon by both parties in writing. When thinking of buyers agency think of it more like an Attorney Client relationship. In doing so, you have selected a real estate agent to work exclusively with and for you, to secure a piece of real estate.

This relationship is exceedingly important if you choose to purchase a home not listed or a “for sale by owner” home. Contact your real estate agent for more information regarding working with For Sale by Owners


Remember, the real estate agent you select has a legal and ethical obligation to ensure that your best interests are maintained. Therefore, call the Keith Lawrence Group of Southeast Louisiana buyer agents.  Read our guide to understand closing cost.

When a Selling Agent is selling a home they work for their client, the home owner. Selling agents are skilled negotiators that have promised their homeowners they will sell their home.

This is even more reason to have an advocate and an Exclusive Buyers Agent on your side. The commissions from a sale for both the seller and buyer agent are paid for by the seller. The commission has been previously negotiated in the contract sales price. A portion is given to the buyers Agent Real Estate Company if a a ready, willing and able buyer is found when the home closes.

In the event you choose to purchase a home using the selling agent, you may lose some of your power to successfully negotiate.
