There are a lot of good agents in our area. The listing agent may very well be one of them. The only thing to be aware of is that the listing agent has an obligation to represent the interests of the seller. That doesn't mean he or she can't help you too, but it might be a good idea to have your own representation. Since the seller normally pays brokerage fees in a transaction, it wouldn't cost you anything to have your own agent.
Hope that helps!
