Buyer’s Agent

A buyer’s agent is a licensed real estate agent who represents the buyer in a transaction.  The buyer’s agent has authority to act on behalf of the buyer in negotiating a Purchase and Sale Agreement with the seller’s agent.

Sometimes buyer’s agents are referred to as selling agents.  Do not confuse selling agent with seller’s agent.  In the real estate community, the buyer’s agent is referred to as the “selling agent” and the seller’s agent is referred to as the “listing agent.”
