This ensures you that the agent you hire is working for you. Only for you.
SIGN the Buyer Agency Agreement.
This employs the agent to work EXCLUSIVELY for you. If not, they can get a complaint against them from their Realtor Association and could lose their status as a Realtor, in addition to MAJOR fines for Ethics Violations.. They could also lose their State License.
Important Note: NOT ALL LICENSED AGENTS are also REALTORS. You need a REALTOR. They are licensed agents who are also members of the National Association of Realtors and as such they have agreed to go above and beyond to work ethically in all situations. We take our Pledge and Code of Ethics very seriously and we know that you as a buyer put your trust in us to work on your behalf.

A Buyer's Agent works for you and owes fidicuairy responsibility to you, not to the sellers. A good Buyer's Agent will help you find the right home, help you by negotiating the best possible price and terms for you, and help you with the inspections and paperwork to and through settlement.
You should search online for active real estate agents in your area. A few good places to locate these active real agents are here on Trulia, Zillow.com and ActiveRain.com. You can also ask family members and friends for referrals.
Good luck in your search.

if every home is "perfect for you" according to the agent, run away.
If the agent does not return calls promptly, move on.
Ask about the homes the agent has sold in the past, where when at what price.
Ask them why they got into the business, how long they have been and what they like about it. The agents who love what they do are likely more interested in making great transactions with happy clients. Ask lots of questions, if they shoot from the hip and after checking you find they were wrong, again move on.
You should focus your interests on identifying a buyer's agent and avoid relationships that involve working with the seller's listing agent. We recommend attending open houses to meet the agents more than get to see the homes. By attend open houses you can get a feel for how the agent thinks on their feet, their knowledge of the local real esate market, and whether or not you feel working with them would be a good fit.
At some point, there is nothing wrong with sharing your concerns with the agent. This may open doors and clear the way for you to make a decision.
Not sure why an agent representing a buyer would look out for the interest of the other party. Unless you decide to use the agent of the seller and they will represent both parties. I'm sure if you ask your friends, family or co-workers (if any) they can refer you to a trustworthy real estate agent.
