A buyer's specialist, or buyer's agent or buyer's representative, is a real estate agent specializing in representing buyers rather than listing and selling homes.
A buyer's agent or buyer's specialist interviews clients about their home needs, wants, family plans and other factors impacting their buying decisions. Buyer agents counsel home buyers about market prices and how much home they can afford given their available fiscal resources. A buyer's agent must know local housing markets that will best serve their clients' needs. A buyer's agent also keeps up with local home values as well as the properties up for sale at any given time.
