As Bob mentioned there are so many important decisions that need to be made before you sign any documents. I hope you do find an agent that can help you.

The Realtor that is your agent will be paid his/her fee by the Seller when escrow closes. You do not pay anything. However, your Realtor does need to represent you and your best interests. Interview a few before you decide to select one.
You are considering making an offer by yourself. The purchase of a home is an involved process that includes initiating, accepting and modifying contract documents, understanding disclosures from the Seller and lender, carrying out inspections, and importantly, making informed decisions that would not only have an immediate effect but also down the road as it pertains to the property itself. Are you sure that you are prepared and informed enough to do this on your own? Remember, you do not pay your Realtor - the Seller does.
My office covers the Pacoima area and we have recently closed a transaction there. We would be glad to work with you. At your convenience email or give us a call.
