You should ask your friends if they know a reliable, knowledgeable Realtor. Ask them who they have worked with and if they have been happy with the results. This is a great way to get referrals in your area. A buyer's agent is typically paid their commission by the seller, so you needn't be worried about cost. You have the right to choose who you work with, interview people and shop around. Find the best fit for you. If you would like a referral, please feel free to contact me. Good Luck!
