Sorry Mark, wrong website or you are just making something up. NAEBA is a non-profit organization, no 'ad portals' or whatever that means, and there are no sales calls. Once again, this is a non-profit association and is used as a source for the Federal Trade Commission, HUD, recommended by Suze Orman, Dave Ramsey, Smart Money Magazine, and dozens of other sources as the number one route to finding a legitimate EBA.

Keep it honest or get off the forum.

Sorry, but this smells fishy. If you go the website these "EBA's" are pushing you get one of those pay for your ad portals that we all get sales calls on several times a week. Take everything you find on the internet with a grain of salt, especailly when you see several first answers in a row on a site like this.

Angel, as you've been asking questions for 2 years, I'll assume you are not part of a guerilla marketing campaign here. Take Mott's advice. Check out agents here who have answered lot of local questions. Read a selection of their answers (just click on their picture). Pick a couple whose style you like and contact them. It's that simple.

Hello Angelmommee,

Love your user name by the way. As Brooke has explained, I live, work and play Venice. I love it here and know everything one can know about this area. I also serve the surrounding Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee counties; Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Longboat Key, Saint Armands, Siesta Key, Casey Key, Osprey, Nokomis, Venice, Englewood, Manasota Key, North Port, Port Charlotte,and Punta Gorda.

If you decide you would like a single family home, South Venice and Venice Gardens offers an optional association for $150 per year that includes a ferry to a private beach, heated community pool (really big and includes water toys, bathrooms, etc.), a recreational building, park, and several community events.

If you like the beach, I feel we have the best beaches in Sarasota Co! We have (within 5 miles) Venice Beach, directly at the end of historical downtown Venice. Brohard, where Shark'y on the pier is located. Brohard Paw (the only pet friendly beach in Sarasota Co.), Caspersen, Nokomis Beach (on Casey Key). Then just a short drive to Englewood or Sarasota for more beach fun!

I am a 20 year full time real estate broker. I have licenses in Indiana, Michigan and of course Florida. I am what you might call a "GO getter"! If there is a property that matches your criteria, I will find it.

All I need to know is what you are looking for. Take a moment to send me your criteria and I will be happy to inform you on what is available! But you must hurry, our inventory is diminishing quickly!

Thank you for considering in my real estate services.

There are at least 10 very qualified agents that have answered your post. I suggest that you contact your favorite 3 that have posted here! Another option is to "Find a Pro" in Venice via trulia®, and stick with ONE agent.

"Tom Home Buyer" is correct,got to NAEBA.org, am certain that the name I suggest earlier is a member of NAEBA, but to be certain, you might go through their website.

Go to NAEBA.com, the website for the National Assoc. of Exclusive Buyer Agents. They can assist you with your search for a true exclusive buyer's agent. The others who have answered here appear to be traditional real estate agents who take listings and work with buyers. For true buyer representation that eliminates the conflicts found in traditional real estate companies use an EBA.

I heard the question, and am glad you have the wisdom to specifically look for an exclusive buyer agent. I do believe there is only one that serves that area, his name is Thomas Coler, and is just about to be inducted into the REBAC (Real estate Buyers Agency Council Hall of Fame), how is that for credentials?
