Are you referring to exclusive within one realty office-- Any local agent can help you, as most properties do end up on MLS--and keep in ind that any agent can help with you with showings on any exclusives, with a buyer broker agreement. The vast majority of available properties are on MLS--check out http://www.MLSLI.com Are you looking specifically in the New Hyde Park area--

Only the listing office or a Buyers agent can get into an exclusive listing. What you should do is hire a buyer’s agent to work for you. A good buyers agent will search the MLS, Other brokers exclusives, Private or for sale by owners as well as past expired listings. A buyer’s agent is hired by you to turn over every rock to help you find the home your looking for. Most buyers think it is going to cost them so they go the traditional way by working with a seller’s agent. The problem with this arrangement is that agent is duty bound to get the seller the best deal since they work for the seller. Like a sellers agent any compensation or commission should be taken from the proceeds of the home so there is no out of pocket cost just like the sellers when they hire the agent to work in their best interests. If you research Buyers Agency on the web you will see the difference. Don't make the mistake of thinking all agents are the same. Like an attorney you want a Realtor to represent you not the other side of the transaction.
