You could do that if you have not signed an Exclusive Buyer Agent Agreement with one agent. And even if you DID, I would recommend that you have that agent refer you to an agent that specializes in the other areas.
Ideally, you will find an agent that covers a large area and can effectively assist you in multiple areas!
Best of luck with the home search!
Each time you meet with an agent for the first time you should be shown a Disclosure Form".
If they don't provide one, they can be fined.
That "Disclosure Form" is not an agreement to work with that agent/broker.
It is only to help you understand what your options are.
You can sign many diffferent "Exclusive Buyer Agreements" which is a different form altogether.
It is an agreement that you owe them a commission when you buy a house under the conditins that the agreement lays out.
However unless they have specific limiting language about when and where you owe a commission to whom, you could be on the hook for more than one commission when you buy.
I am not a lawyer so none of this is legal advice, but you could have an agreement with a different agent for each town(s) that limits their compensation to properties in a specified town(s).
Then you can have a rep in each town without conflict.

1) The paperwork involved in this process is extremely complicated, having stated this It is important that a Realtor be â€œpracticed at our tradeâ€ pick a RealtorÂ® which has completed 15+ transactions the previous year
2) Interview 3-5 full time RealtorsÂ® (very few part-time agents have the same skills as a person who works Real Estate on a full time basis)
3) Do a basic back ground check on your RealtorÂ® use a site like PIPL or just goggle their name, this usually turns up items such as lawsuits, bankruptcies or other items which you feel might interfere or conflict with a RealtorÂ® representing your best interest. Ps: this does not work for a John Smith
4) Once you have interviewed your potential RealtorsÂ® and if you are still unsure and want a â€œtrail runâ€ sign an exclusive buyers agency for 48 hours with the RealtorÂ® and explain if all goes well in the beginning then you will be willing to commit for 1- 3 months.
5) Work with a RealtorÂ® which is local to your area. Meaning a 10-20 mile radius, they will know the schools, shopping and the growth potential of the area without having to go look it up!
Before you even start this process consider purchasing the book by Dave Ramsey â€œThe Total Money Makeoverâ€ this will provide valuable information in regard to having a successful financial life & make a prudent home purchase!
Thatâ€™s your list! Good Luck!
