If you’re looking to buy real estate and have chosen a real estate agent to represent you, then go to them with any questions you have about properties for sale. Real Estate agents only get compensated for their time if you purchase a property through them. They don’t get a salary. If your agent doesn’t have the resources to help you, find another agent. If you plan to use one agent, don’t ask other Realtors to spend time doing research for you knowing you’re not going to use them to represent you. There are also ethical rules that Realtors must adhere to. One is that if an agent is first to show a property, they are the ones that will get the commission even if another agent represents the Buyer in the transaction (remember this when you go look at Open Houses). So, to make things go as smooth as possible, pick one Realtor and give them the chance of satisfying your requests and needs. If Jerry Seinfeld had done that, he probably wouldn’t have been sued!
