If you get a buyers agent than you will be required to sign a listing agreement in order for them to properly represent you as so. In NYC a buyers agent isnt so popular as is with the rest of the country. And if you are looking at new condo development there is someone in my office who specializes in Astoria, LIC, Willamsburg, Greenpoint. All have great properies popping up. Keep in mind these new buildings are not so flexible on price..

I am here to assist. NYC is a place where it's usually best to get a buyers agent. I am very familiar with Queens and would gladly assist you. There are tons of great new developments going up in these areas you are interested in.
FYI-A buyers broker is a service that comes from the building or seller's side of the transaction.

Buyer's agents are very popular in other parts of the country but not so much in NY. However, it is an option to be weighed along with all of your other options. Let me know if I can be of help. Gerry

BTW: Prudential Douglas Elliman has a number of great certified buyer agents serving Astoria, Sunnyside and other Queens neighborhoods.

If you wanted to have a buyers agent they would look out for your best interest. Also since you are a first time buyer they could also help you with the offer.
If I can be of any help let me know. I also work in Queens.
