You do not have to worry about that though, you are in Stockton, Stockton has a wonderful agent named Joe Cox who both works his tail off, is highly effective and does not require a buyers agreement, though I have told him he should start.
As a top producing lender, I have worked with a lot of agents, Joe Cox is clearly one of the best that you has a buyer or seller can use.
Here is a link to his Web Site

A lot of good information on this posting and you can see the answers are pretty similar in nature. Your best interest should be to work exclusively with an agent you feel comfortable with and trust, one who is experienced with all property types whether traditional or distressed, a full time and local agent. Then get together to review the specifics on your situation. Although most home buying processes are the same there are always little intangibles based on your individual circumstances and situation. This way you have a clear understanding of expectations before making any type of commitment.
There are a lot of great agents for you to take into consideration getting in touch with to see who is your best fit. Have a great day!

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment assistance? There are costs such as down payment, closing costs, earnest money deposit, appraisal fee. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses from a minimum 580 fico score. What are all the cities your considering and the maximum payment/price your looking to achieve? Do you need listings emailed to you to study?
Here is a needs list to gather for processing a loan approval, DU Approval or pre-approval letter to get out shopping for a home of your choice. http://tinyurl.com/l9ctod4
It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify you in minutes and go over your options. I specialize in Over and Under 640 Fico Score Loans and offer credit repair at no cost to raise fico scores to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. The loan program to fit your needs will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

So even though you don't pay for it directly, you are hiring someone to look out for your interests in what is likely the largest purchase of your life. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't hire someone to operate on you simply because they were a friend or a friend of a friend or Aunt Mary's second cousin twice removed - take the same care with your investment money. Interview several agents/brokers. Talk with their referrals. Ask them to explain the process. Look them up online, etc... You'll be happy you did in the end, and don't worry about upsetting someone. Agents are like stop signs - they're everywhere. It's your money. you shouldn't be guilted into hiring someone you don't want to.
Although I am in Texas I enjoy helping others with the process, so feel free to give me a call for advice.
Enjoy the every step and a early congratulations on the purchase of your new home.
