Legally, there is no buyer's agent in New York. But it's easy to find seller's agent who will be paid by the seller but helping you find your dream apartment as buyer's agent dose.
The first step is that you have to decide which area in Queens you are interested in. If you are looking for an area which has good school ranking, then you should considerate about Forest Hill and Bayside; if you want to be close to manhatthan, then you can considerate Astoria or Long island city. For investment purpose, woodside, corona, flushing, Elmhurst and even Jamacia will be a place to considerate.
