There's no obligation to have an agent assist you and if they aren't a good fit in assisting your needs, you can meet with a different one until you find the agent you like as long as you didn't sign a buyer's broker agreement. Usually people sign those when they know for sure they want to buy a house using that particular agent.
Good luck in your search!
If you willing to go further south you might find something. If that's do-able, check Atlantic, Gloucester and Cumberland counties.
I only asked the question in hopes someone could say, "Oh! Look into _____ town." That's all. :)
There are many areas that might be a good fit, but without price specifics, size of home, taxes and lot size I don't know that anyone can give an informed response.
