Exclusive Buyer Agency is the practice of representing only buyers and never sellers in a transaction. The company never lists a seller's property and thus never has a seller as a client.
Exclusive buyer agents are home buyer's advocates who focus their skills and knowledge to benefit home buyers exclusively, rather than working with for both sellers and buyers. The vast majority of real estate offices benefit from representing both parties. NAEBA members avoid this conflict of interest by supporting the fiduciary needs of home buyers only.
The Board of Directors met for additional training and strategic planning after the announcement. NAEBA President Michael Crowley said "NAEBA believes real estate services for buyers are best done by companies that only work with buyers, avoiding the conflicts of interest inherent in the typical real estate office. Traditional licensees are primarily in the sales game promoting their homes for sale while trying to be all things to all people. NAEBA members are specialists promoting the financial best interests of the home buyer".
The National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA) (http://naeba.org ) is an organization of companies dedicated to representing only buyers of real estate. NAEBA member brokerages do not list homes for sale and never represent sellers. This restriction to one side of the real estate transaction avoids conflicts and ensures that the interest of the home buyer is protected at all times from house-hunting and negotiation, to inspection, financing and closing.
NAEBA is pioneering a nationwide effort to give today's home-buying consumers the level of service they deserve and are increasingly demanding. NAEBA members firmly believe that home buyers have the same full and equal representation rights as sellers in any real estate transaction. NAEBA, in existence since 1995, is comprised of Exclusive Buyer Agencies in most areas of the United States, and in some international markets.
