Keeping you well protected during the transaction is extremely important. This can keep you out of harms way, educate you to where you can check for issues that matter, help you to keep your earnest money during a cancellation rather than losing it, get you a better deal, and keep you aware of any problems that may or may not keep you from going forward with the purchase...
A good agent is also a good listener and cares about your desires. One that help you distinguish between wants and needs, and helps educate you to what you can get for the amount that you are spending. A good agent is also a good negotiator. Not a difficult person to deal with that will be abrupt and obnoxious to the other agent during negotiations. This will just backfire. It takes a certain skill to get what the buyer wants when the seller wants something else.
A good agent also prepares you for what is ahead so there are no surprises.

He or she will not pressure you to buy each house they show you. A true professional will know by your reactions to a home when you are ready to buy. One question I ask my buyers at the end of each showing day is: Did we see anything today that you would be upset if you called me and I told you it had been sold? If so, consider writing an offer. If not, go home and think about them some more.
A great buyer's agent will explain the process thoroughly to you, answer all of those questions you have and make sure that you are informed all the way through the process.
Once under contract they will help you with getting all the inspections set up and help you through each decision point.
Working with a full-time agent gives you an advantage over part-time agents as they are not available to run out and show you new listings in themiddle of the week.

There are many good agents and a ton of bad ones. Treat it like a job and if "YOUR" company is hiring, then interview and find the best "EMPLOYEE" for the job.
Thanks for your time

A Great buyers agent will compel a buyer to say "thank you, I want to refer others to you so they have the experience I just had"
What experience causes a buyer to say this?
1) Communication = the number one thing a buyer wants
2) Education = the buyer wants to be informed and advised properly THROUGHOUT the process
3) Representation = the buyer wants the best interest for them to be met. Every person is different
4) Relationship = the buyer has to know they have the proper experience and trust with their Realtor.
As a buyer you should expect this from your Realtor. It's not just about jumping in the car to look at homes. Expect a consultation where you can interview your Realtor and they can interview you. If you are a fit you both decide this together and move forward from there. Then you'll have communication, information (education), representation based on the relationship you build from that meeting.
Since people have different personalities find a Realtor that fits yours and understands your needs, can they guide you to good decisions? That is the ultimate goal!

The quickest way to find a full time agent is to look for a an agent that is a Broker.
Hiring a broker, is a lot like hiring a C.P.A. instead of an accountant to do your taxes.
Know any part time C.P.A.s?
In Scottsdale Arizona, good deals rarely last a week.
You need an agent who can MANUALLY search the Multiple Listing Service several times a day for the community or property you are looking for.
Setting someone up on an automatic search rarely works since by the time you get the notification, there are multiple offers on the property.
