BUYERS’ AGENT: WHO ARE THEY?
A buyer’s agent (or buyer’s advocate) is a licensed professional who searches for, evaluates and negotiates the purchase of a property on behalf of the buyer.
Buyers’ agents exclusively represent home buyers and property investors in residential and commercial real estate transactions.

How do Buyers’ Agents and Sellers’ Agents differ?
A buyers’ agent (or advocate) is different from a traditional selling agent in that he or she represents the buyer. Buyers’ agents represent buyers exclusively, while selling agents represent vendors (sellers). A buyers’ advocate is compensated either with a fixed fee or with a percentage of the sale price. A buyers’ advocate does not sell properties. It is against Australian law for an agent to act for (and accept a commission) both parties to a transaction.
As a result, they are not independent and may recommend their own local stock of listings; for instance, a buyers’ agent in Sydney may suggest its listings. When working for a sales agency in a specific suburb, the sales agent will only show properties in that area and won’t have access to other agents’ off-market listings (since other agents are reluctant to deal with them). An exclusive property buyer’s advocate searches all of Sydney’s real estate market for suitable areas without bias toward any particular property or selling agency.
