No; you don't have to deal with multiple Realtors. A licensed NJ Realtor can assist with negotiating and purchasing homes listed by them, as well as homes listed by other Realtors.
I always recommend that buyers and sellers identify one solid Realtor they feel comfortable with. This Realtor can serve as their confidant and resource to help them locate the best home options available.
If you don't have one particular Realtor with whom you're committed to, then consider interviewing 2 to 3 Realtors. Determine whose qualifications, personality and way of doing business appeals to you most.
Once you figure out who is best suited to you, stick with that Realtor. This way you can free up more of your time to do the fun part....finding a home you'll love!

It is best to find one realtor that you are comfortable with and work with them. They are able to build a relationship with you and understand your needs. When you decide on your realtor and are comfortable then begin your search.

It is defintely better to work with just 1 agent. These listings are the MLS, which means all the agents have access to them. When you pick 1 agent who you feel comfortable with they will work hard for you!

Working with just one agent is definatly in your best interest.
Bounching from Realtor to Realtor makes finding your perfect home difficult on you. You should have a Realtor who will listen to your wants and needs and be knowledgable about the area you are interested in.
If you want to send me the homes you have an interest in, I would be happy to review them and give you my professional advise.
I am a local Freehold resident as well as an agent in the area. I know the in's and out's of the area pretty well.
Please feel free to contact me directly, I would love to help you find your new home.
You may contact each individual Real Estate Agent that represents a property to show you the home, however, in that instance, the Real Estate Agent's releationship would be described as a "Disclosed Dual Agent", meaning that the Real Estate Agent would then be representing both the buyer and seller and therefore will not be able to put one party's interest ahead of the other party. Whereas, if you chose to work with a Buyer's Agent who would be representing you as the Buyer, the Agent would have a fiduciary duty only to the buyer and would be able to show you any property listed.
If you choose to have a Buyer's Agent represent you, you should be working with just that one agent, unless you are searching for homes in various locations that the agent does not cover.
It's best to find one Realtor to work with that you feel comfortable with and trust. Make sure the Realtor is a full time Realtor and they are local to the Freehold area. Any Realtor can assist you with any home listed on the MLS by any Broker. Once you fine the home you like, your Realtor will also be the one who will negotiate the offer for you and help you every step of the process and answer all of your questions.
I'd be more than happy to assit you in finding & buying your new home.

I agree with Allie in that you should find one Realtor that you are comfortable dealing with and stick with them as you will find that once you build a relationship both you and the Realtor will become more knowledgeable about each other and most importantly, the Realtor eventually becomes quickly able to identify your needs in new property listings.
I would start by calling upon some of those listings you have found here on Trulia and asking questions of the agent. Attending open houses (which are frequently advertised here on Trulia) is also a great way to get to know agents.
The only time I would advocate a buyer using multiple agentsis when you are looking in two vastly different areas. Full disclosure of the use of multiple agents is advisable. Seeing as you are from NY, should be desire to look in Monmouth County and Ocean County, you might be better served using different agents that specialize in those areas.
Feel free to email if you have any further questions as I do not follow Trulia posts (too time consuming, sorry).
